Year of Film

Posted on

How many of you out there consider yourselves loyal film buffs who see at least a film a year?

When I was younger I saw a lot of films, mostly Disney and the occasional releases from other theaters. Yes, I even dragged my mom to see Pokemon The Movie 2000 in theaters – sorry Mom! Nowadays, it has been rare when I go to the theater unless there’s something I really want to see.

Starting in the later half of 2013, I purchased a membership to AMC Stubs, seeing that I knew I was going to watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen in 2013 and Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, Maleficent, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and Big Hero 6 in 2014. Guess that it was good that I did – the membership has definitely paid for itself with the number of films I’ve seen, which include Saving Mr. Banks, Muppets Most Wanted, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Guardians of the Galaxy twice and The Maze Runner opening soon. Surprisingly, I think its safe to say that this is a record year for me of films I’ve gone to see in theaters.

Catching Fire takes the record for being the film I’ve seen the most in a theater – 3 times. (Twice by myself and once with a friend who wanted to see it with a buddy.)

Personal favorites that I loved seeing include The Fault in Our Stars, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

After attending San Diego Comic Con in July, I think its safe to add The BoxTrolls to the list of films to see.

How about all of you? Any films you’re excited to see?
