SCOTT’S FILM GEEK JOURNAL #92 – A Year of the Journal

fgj_logo

It’s been a little over a year since I started Scott’s Film Geek Journal and things have changed quite a bit. The original intent was to write something every day, a daily blog about my viewing habits. As you can see, that didn’t happen. 92 is an impressive number but it’s not 365. Still, I would like to continue with the Journal where I can. A lot of you seem to like reading them (and thank you) and I enjoy sharing them with you.

But as I have gotten away from posting every day, there has been a huge backlog of films, building up to a near insurmountable number. 

So, what you’re about to see is an estimate of every film I watched in 2013, arranged in a list. In bold are the films I was unable to write full reviews for, and I’m sharing with you here for the first time. I know, I don’t like it. I would like to say something about everything. Unfortunately, if I don’t clean this stuff out, I will never get to the already mounting stack of films I’ve been watching in 2014. Remember that if something isn’t in bold, that means I reviewed it somewhere on here and a simple search can bring that up (No, I’m not linking to each film. Stop asking me to work.).

Another important note is that the ratings given to each film are how I see them right now, not necessarily what I said when I reviewed them. You will seem some films adjusted for better or worse as I have revisited them and reevaluated my position. I believe our opinion of film is always in flux and to stick to what we said originally, no matter what, gives an unfair and inaccurate impression of the work being critiqued. Some of these changes are small, such as in the case of AMERICAN MARY or NOW YOU SEE ME. Some are huge, as is the case of 2013’s EVIL DEAD, a film I was critical of when I first saw it. I have now watched the film five times and believe me, I wish I could take back that initial review. 

So, sit back and enjoy this look back at our first year and know that there is more to come.

 

RATING SYSTEM

The Best – Reserved for the absolute cream of the crop.
Highly Recommended – Very good. Far better than your typical film and one that I will remember for some time.
Recommended – Just what it says. This is a good film and earns a recommendation. Don’t think that because it’s not one of the top two categories that these films aren’t worth your time. The “recommended” tag is a winner and nothing to sneer at.
Barely Recommended – The middle of the road. Those films where I didn’t feel it was a complete waste of time, but it didn’t set my world on fire either. Not bad, but leaves me feeling bored and/or apathetic.
Disappointing – Close but no cigar. Does a few things right but is ultimately a whole lot of wasted potential. Not recommended.
Awful – A bad movie. Pure and simple. Not worth your time.
The Worst – The Britta Perry of ratings, though not as entertaining. The bottom of the barrel.

CRITERIA

What was the film trying to accomplish and how well did it meet those goals?
In addition to (or sometimes despite) that, how does the film hold up on sheer entertainment value?
