Here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. We decided to do an extended potpourri episode since we haven’t done a proper potpourri in what seems like a while. We recorded for 2 hours but I got it edited down to an hour and a half. Don’t worry, though, I’ve saved all the stuff for a later podcast so you’ll hear it eventually. And it’s good, too!

Mike’s Top 10 Movies of 2013 and Viewing Stats for the Year

star-trek-into-darkness-8101-p-1366904611-470-75

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

We survived the 2012 end of days! It’s really a miracle that we got to see any movies in 2013, right? Let alone 20 movies ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE!

In keeping with the great tradition (check out Matt and Tiny’s posts earlier today), here are my top ten movies of the year. They aren’t necessarily the BEST movies of the year, and that’s intentional. Best of the year list tend to be similar, and have very few surprises. So while you’ll find a few movies on this list that aren’t surprising at all, I like to think that my list has a combination of consensus with the critics and going against the grain. They might not be the best, but these are my Top Ten Favorite Movies of 2013.

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 have compiled some of my statistics and “end of the year” standouts and rankings.

I’ll list my top ten movies of 2013 in this post as well. If you want to hear me discuss my favorites, tomorrow The Obsessive Viewer Podcast is back with a 2013 wrap-up episode where me, Mike and Tiny all discuss the best and worst movies we watched last year.

As an added bonus, you can hear me discuss my top ten of 2013 on the latest episode of The Nerds You’re Looking For podcast!

Mike’s Trailer Tuesday: X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

xmen229013201326

Release Date: May 23, 2014

Director: Bryan Singer

Written By: Simon Kinberg (screenplay and story), Matthew Vaughn (story) & Jane Goldman (story)

This summer the two studios which own rights to Marvel characters and aren’t named Marvel will duke it out at the box office. Sony will release the hotly anticipated (and lately scrutinized) Amazing Spider-Man 2. Without a major Marvel studios release, the only competition for Amazing 2 will be Bryan Singer’s return to the helm of the X-Men franchise in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Early excitement would indicate DoFP is the more likely to win the superhero box office battle this summer.

Note: Come back Thursday for a special Thursday edition of Trailer Tuesday for the release of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. Continue reading

This week was huge for The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. For starters, I edited this week’s episode in a new program that is going to be far less problematic than Garageband and, as I type this, I’m expecting some sweet new podcasting equipment to be delivered. But most exciting is the fact that we signed up for IndyPopCon. We’ll have more information down the road but, for now, we’re very excited.

This week is Space Movies Part 1! I hope you like it.

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

4 Days of Blood: Part II – The Horrors of Space

HT_gravity_tether_tk_131007_4x3_992

Space is an endless landscape for humanity to explore. The idea of colonizing the vast unknown and taking humanity to the stars has been a dream of humanity for centuries. This dream has led to a vast array of fictional voyages into space.

Still, there’s something inherently terrifying about the idea of space travel and the isolation that goes with it. The same unknown that inspires humanity also has the power to ignite our morbid sides. Take a group of humans, put them in a confined space millions of miles from other humans, and horrific monsters won’t be far behind. Continue reading

After yet another lengthy battle with Garageband, the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast is officially posted! I’m starting to think I should start a separate podcast that’s just me yelling while I edit this one.

This week we discussed Elysium and veered off on a bit of an I Am Legend tangent. Inspired by the Slightly Sauced podcast, we took to Yahoo! Answers and gave our expertise on a variety of movie-related questions. It was a blast and we’ll probably do it again in the future.

Enjoy this week’s podcast and, if you feel like it, write us a review on iTunes. You can also share your memorable movie theater experiences with us. Continue reading
