A Year-End Update
Usually on New Year's Eve, I would be posting my Reel Stinkers list of the worst films of the year. Obviously, given the fact that my movie watching took a huge hit this year, that will not be happening. I also will not be posting my picks for the best films in a couple months, because I don't think I've seen enough to make a full list of truly great films.
I apologize if this disappoints anyone. The truth of the matter is that I don't really enjoy streaming movies that much. I prefer the social interaction of the theater, and so whenever I stream something to watch on TV or on my laptop by myself, the experience just feels like it is missing something. I know I am in the minority. I have spoken to a lot of people who do not miss theaters at all, and love being able to watch whatever they want on multiple streaming services. But to me, it's simply not the same, and I truly hope theaters will be able to survive whenever the time does come that we can return to some sort of normalcy in our world.
As for myself, I have managed to remain healthy the entire year, luckily. Even though it has been a rough year overall with me losing my job of 15 years due to the company not being able to sustain a full work force, and having to give up travel plans, and my plans for my girlfriend to move closer to me, I know that I am lucky all things considered. When I think about what so many other people have lost this past year, I know that I have little to complain about. I'm in a good place financially, and my at-home job training that I have been doing for almost six months is going well at the moment. So, please don't worry about me, and I hope that all of you have managed to stay safe in these times.
My output for reviews in the year ahead will depend greatly on what will be offered. Like I said, I'm not a huge fan of streaming in general, so unless it's a film I'm truly interested in, I will not seek it out. I promise I will try to review when I can. I want to keep this blog alive, and I appreciate those of you who have given me support all these years. I will update whenever I can, so please continue to follow this blog.
Thank you all again for your support, and here's to hoping for better times ahead. It's going to be a while, and there's a lot of mess to clean up before we can get to where we were before March of 2020 hit, but I know it will happen. Until then, stay safe all of you.
