I love movies. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had quite an extensive collection of them. I love all kinds of movies – foreign films, indie, Disney, thriller, and especially horror – there’s not much I won’t watch. I think I subscribe to just about every streaming service offered too. (This probably explains why I’m fat). I love unwinding with a movie after a stressful day, I love watching movies while I’m crafting, I could watch a movie anytime and anywhere.
I also love lists. So in all my movie watching, I decided to keep track of what I watched this year. I’ve added a count to my blog (as if people care to follow along). My goal is to watch 250 films this year. I think I’m well on my way.
Just to give you an idea of my horror movie obsession: I was so fascinated with Freddy Krueger when I was 5 that I begged my mom to buy me a Freddy costume for Halloween. She should have never let me watch those movies at that age. I would get so scared that I would sleep with my bedroom light on, but at the same time I loved it. The costume was just like this one:
I think being exposed at such a young age really desensitized me to horror. With the exception of Insidious, not much scares me anymore. I actually watched the original A Nightmare on Elm Street over the weekend and found it funny more than anything. It is such a classic though and is a great slasher film. And the effects were pretty good for being made in the early 80’s. I’m probably a weirdo for liking all the gore. I had high hopes for the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street when it came out in 2010, but it was pretty terrible. Jackie Earle Haley played a good Freddy, but Robert Englund is just way better. Kellan Lutz was the best part of the remake. Hello there. 🙂
138 movies to go. Good thing I don’t have a life.
