Amazing Year Day 283: Going the Distance – 100 Films

15 Dec

For the last few years I’ve had an annual goal to watch 100 never-before-seen movies. I typically succeed, but last year was a devastating recession with a mere 71 films viewed.

Today, Saturday, December 15 is a fitting day to reach my goal, and I couldn’t choose a better film than Rocky, which profiles a no name fighter going the distance.

The following movies earned, in my opinion, an honorary 5 stars: This Beautiful Fantastic; Batman: Gotham by Gaslight; Paprika; Bad Moms; The Only Living Boy in New York; Avengers: Infinity War; Hearts Beat Loud; Love, Simon; and Every Day.

I hereby dedicate these 100 films of 2018 to Rocky Balboa’s turtles Cuff and Link, and to all the unsung contributors in cinema. Thank you for entertaining me 100 times this year!
