All The Movies I Watched This Year

My initial goal was to watch 100 movies this year as I saw at the end of last year on another blog.  Things were going well until I hit a major movie-watching hiatus in the spring. The movies I watch are not all the same genre so skim it over and read the little comments after the movies that sound interesting to you, you’ll surely find a few you can add to your “To Watch” list for the winter.

  1. Manchester By The Sea – Extremely long and kind of depressing
  2. Drinking Buddies – Honestly, not a fan
  3. He’s Just Not That Into You – Great movie for a hopeless romantic and someone who loves those types of movies
  4. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation – This was the third time I’ve seen this movie, still awesome
  5. Before We Go – Good but doesn’t really stick out in my mind as one of my favorites this year
  6. Exam – For someone whose biggest fear is paper cuts in the eye, this was not ideal.  It caused me to throw my laptop off the couch as a reflex for being faced with this fear.
  7. Split – Great movie until the end when it just got wild
  8. Allegiant – Big fan of the whole series
  9. The Lost City of Z – Also long but it was a really interesting story
  10. Get Out – I think it’s supposed to be scary but I think the trailer was scarier than the movie itself, which actually made me laugh a few times
  11. Wonder Woman – Massive fan, loved seeing such a strong female take the lead
  12. The Unborn – Just don’t watch it, trust me
  13. You Get Me – Actually really enjoyed this teen version of a stalker movie, it made me believe in Bella Thorne a lot more
  14. Twilight – Painfully awkward but you can bet more of this series is on this list
  15. Baby Driver – Amazing movie, incredible cast, outstanding soundtrack.  If you haven’t seen it you need to immediately.  There’s amazing transitions from fast and upbeat and crazy scenes to some really sweet romantic/ endearing parts that are flawless with the music.
  16. Dunkirk – The lack of music and dialogue made this a no for me but that’s a personal preference, this movie made me realize that I’m much more of an upbeat movie type of person.
  17. The Gift – 100% better the first time around.  Similar to You Get Me but more adult for sure.
  18. Atomic Blonde – Was definitely not a fan of all the unnecessary violence, I also had a decent amount of trouble following the plot.
  19. The Fundamentals of Caring – Such a sweet movie.
  20. To The Bone – Gave me chills over and over again, it’s about teens struggling with eating disorders in a really different context than they are usually shown in media and I really enjoyed it.  For someone that never so much as blinks an eye at sad movies, I almost had tears welling up.  Almost. 
  21. La La Land – Contrary to popular opinion, I fell asleep a few times and didn’t enjoy it
  22. New Moon – Similarly awkward to the first, but things are improving
  23. If I Stay – Massive fan of this one, I love a good “day keeps repeating itself” movie
  24. A Cinderella Story – I have loved this movie for years and it never disappoints
  25. American Assassin – Also so unnecessarily bloody and gory and violent, wasn’t a big fan of this one
  26. The Martian – I love how science-y this movie gets and how lighthearted the main character remains in such a discouraging situation.  Must watch for me.
  27. American Made – I always enjoy Tom Cruise movies and although I liked it, I don’t think it was my favorite.
  28. Kingsman: The Golden Circle – I have never seen the first one in this series but I really really enjoyed it
  29. Happy Death Day – Ah, another “day keeps repeating itself” movie.  This one went from scary to funny in a great way and I really loved this movie.
  30. Bladerunners – Left the theater after being horribly confused for way too long
  31. Simply Complicated – Demi Lovato’s documentary was amazing and I have gained a lot of respect for her as a person after seeing this and watching her realize mistakes she made and fixing them.  Watching her grow and change and become such a beautiful and strong woman is really inspiring.
  32. Eclipse – Still awkward but getting better!  Jacob got a haircut!
  33. High School Musical – It’s always a good day when you can watch HSM again
  34. High School Musical 2 – And an even better day when you can watch both back to back
  35. Psycho – Fell asleep but called the ending from the second the whole killing plot was introduced.

And those are all the movies I watched this year so far!  I think I watch a huge range of different types of movies from documentaries to action movies and rom-coms.  There are so many movies out there and watching them really feeds my mind and my imagination, I love getting lost in a movie for 2 hours then mulling it over for a few days.  Although I didn’t make it to 100 (not even close) I’m still happy with all the cozy times I had watching all these movies.  Cheers to a new year full of so many new movies! Have you seen any of these movies?

  • I track all the movies I watch too! I mostly track new movies I watch, not re-watches. If that was the case, I would have to count The Martian about 20 times since my boyfriend HAS to watch that movie whenever it comes on tv.
    I’ve watched maybe 50% of your list. The one that stand out to me is Baby Driver. Such a great movie!

    • The Martian is such a great movie, I could watch that over and over again too! And Baby Driver was so awesome, I think it was my favorite of the year! What was your favorite movie you watched this year?
