Tiny’s 2013 Year in Movies

12 years

Listen to us discuss our favorite and least favorite movies from 2013 on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast

I watched a few movies in 2013. 320 to be exact! Yeah! I’m happy with that. (Matt is a dick for beating me by 5!). It was a really good movie-watching year for me. This blog and podcast that Matt, Mike and I do is about movies and TV, but for me, the greater of the two is movies. A lot of the TV I watch is escapism. It’s fun to dive into shows and get lost in their worlds. TV is sort of an outlet for me. However, watching a movie is more like a calling. I feel at peace. Not to say I never escape into a movie, but I treat it more like a relationship.

So I’m almost always more excited about the film side of our little endeavor here. Ironically some of my favorite episodes of ours are the TV ones, but I feel like I have a better knack for analyzing, critiquing and enjoying films. So I inevitably lean towards that side of our podcast and blog, and I’m excited to break down my 2013 Year in Movies publicly. Continue reading

Tiny’s Streaming Saturday: The Vicious Kind (2009)

If you are a fan of Adam Scott you should really see The Vicious Kind. He gives a performance unlike anything he’s done before. Most of you probably think of his hilarious turn in Step Brothers, or as the lovable Ben Wyatt on Parks and Recreation. I love him in those roles as well, but I think his talent had never been put on full display until this film.

The Month in Movies: Shocktober 2013

shocktober

My friends and I have been dedicating the month of October to the horror genre and calling it Shocktober for several years now.  I started this blog in February and from the start I was excited about sharing my Shocktober experience with anyone and everyone.

I have been saying for a while that this year has to make up for last year’s abysmal performance. I had it in my mind that I barely watched anything last year. As it turns out, I was 27 movies last year. Not all of them were Shocktober movies, but I had been working under the assumption that I had maybe 10 or 11 viewings total last year.

It’s all for the best because this year was the second best Shocktober I’ve ever had. While I didn’t beat my record of 57 viewings in 2011, I did come close with a very respectable 52 viewings. I’m also proud to say that only 3 of those viewings weren’t Shocktober movies. Continue reading
