I’d be lying if I told you I’ll see all of these movies I’m about to write about anytime soon.
You see, I’m a tortured soul.
I’m a lifelong movie lover who almost never, ever, ever, ever goes to the see movies in the theater.
I know. It’s bad. You can look away. It's embarrassing.
Before, not enough money in the budget, weekends filled with band practices, and other social obligations were to blame.
Now, with a new baby and three animals (also babies), when my wife and I do have time to watch a movie, we do it from the comfort of our own home and with the power of a pause button.
We’ve been trying to watch 2017’s “Logan,” the third and final Wolverine (X-Men) solo film, for what feels like forever now.
“Oh, man, Olivia just threw up all over me.”
“Zoey needs to go potty. Can you let her out?”
“Did you feed the cats?”
Sorry, Hugh Jackman. You’re going to have to wait.
With all that said, I still love movies. I just tend to watch them months or years after they debut.
That’s what has spawned a large collection of – mostly used – movies. I think I’m up to 452. I’ve been trying to tell you, … I have a problem. I probably shouldn’t be allowed near garage sales or thrift stores anymore.
So, while I might not watch most of these in 2018 – or let’s be real, the next half-decade – they’re all something that will hopefully be good enough to someday wind up in my film collection.
