So, for the first time in Obsessive Viewer history, my podcast cohosts and I are putting ourselves through a Summer Box Office Challenge. The inaugural Summer B.O. Challenge was covered extensively in yesterday’s podcast episode (OV166 – Summer Box Office Challenge 2016). But, in case you’re not the podcast type, I decided to throw our selections into a blog post […]
May was a bit of a return to form for me, as far as movies are concerned. I managed to get 30 viewings into the month and an astonishing (for me) 5 theater viewings. Unfortunately for my bank account, it was also my most expensive month so far. Between the $157.52 and all the lost minute expenses I incurred for […]
April was a surprisingly disappointing month. Maybe this is becoming the norm for me? I can’t account for why I’ve watched so few movies or why I feel like I should shoot for a minimum of 30 a month, apparently. Luckily I managed to spend considerably less money than usual. So that’s something. Total Viewings: 16 First Viewings: 8 Theater Viewings: 3 Money […]
I am the worst. I waited until the last day of April to post my breakdown of March’s movie viewing habits. April was a busy month, though. We are far past the procrastination stages of getting our table prepared for Indy PopCon. So much of my month has been devoted to planning for that. If you are in the Indianapolis […]
Total Viewings: 13 First Viewings: 5 Theater Viewings: 2 Money Spent on Movies/TV: $86.13 Click here for a chronological list of the movies I watched in February.
This one stings. I texted a friend Tuesday about the death of comedy legend Harold Ramis, his response struck a chord: “One day all the greats will be gone, bums me out,” he said, and I couldn’t agree more. Harold Ramis really was one of the greats. Personally, I revered Ramis. So much of his work has spots on my […]
Today is February 12th, 2014. Exactly one year ago today I let my obsession with movies/TV spill out of my mind and onto the internet for anyone and everyone to read. I want to take this time to say thank you to everyone reading this. Whether you found it via an alert by WordPress or on one of the social […]
Total Viewings: 19 First Viewings: 12 Theater Viewings: 3 So January in 2014 wasn’t nearly as productive as last year in terms of movies watched. To be fair, however, last January was one of the best months I’ve ever had for movie watching; surpassing many a Shocktober, even. I’m proud of my numbers this month, though. I had a respectable […]
Listen to us discuss our favorite and least favorite movies from 2013 on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast I’ve been keeping track of the movies I watch every year since 2007. This year is the first year that I have a place online to share my stats and I’m excited about that because it was my best year yet. Below I […]
I closed out 2013 with a December that consisted of 20 viewings. Of those 20 viewings, only 8 were “first viewings” and 3 were trips to the theater. It was a pretty mellow way to close out the year. It was actually the opposite of 2012’s stats, where I watched any and every thing that I could. Stay tuned to […]
If you start watching today, Netflix can provide you with an enjoyable Christmas classic each day until the holiday is over. Maybe “classic” is a stretch for some of them, but they will all pull at your heart-strings and put you in the Christmas mood. Without further adieu, your Five Days of Obsessive Viewer Christmas:
I had a mediocre movie-watching month last month. But that’s secondary to the fact that I have eviscerated my previous movie-watching numbers. With a few weeks left in 2013, I have already had the best year in terms of movies watched since I started tracking my viewing habits in 2007. Check back in the new year for my final stats. […]
Release Date: May 2, 2014 Director: Marc Webb Written By: Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Jeff Pinker (Screenplay) and James Vanderbilt (story) As promised, today the Obsessive Viewer gives you a special Thursday edition of Trailer Tuesday: The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So…spoiler alert…I guess.
I’ve been really lagging behind on these TV updates, not to mention the blog as a whole. I apologize for that. I’m hopeful that things will get back to normal soon. And I hope that I’ll get back into the swing of my TV watching habits. I mean, look at this, I watched 11 episodes of television in a two-week […]
Release Date: April 4, 2014 Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Writers: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely Stars: Chris Evans, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie Trailer Tuesdays are back! Now that my time isn’t devoted to Shocktober and horror movies, I can get back to my normal routine. That routine includes Trailer Tuesdays, Streaming Saturdays, Weekly TV posts and, ah hell, why not some Bond 50 posts as well? In […]
