Yes, we’re already three weeks into 2016 but I finally managed to put together my movie rankings for 2015. Because life. I only managed to see 51 films this year, a paltry sum compared to Watson when he isn’t even trying. And eight of those were on a plane to or from China, making the theater total even lower. Definitely a busy year, but overall a great one for movies. Head after the jump to see how I ranked all 51!
GabbingGeek.com was only a few weeks old when I wrote about my bold predictions for 2015 movies. Now that we know the rankings for the year, it’s time to judge those bold predictions. Jump after the break to find out why I hate Jurassic World even more.
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
A while back, I posted some thoughts on the movie Inside Out, suggesting the themes and ideas behind it made it more of a movie for parents than the kids they took to see it.
Well, YouTube personality Nerdwriter did an even more extensive look at the movie, involving psychological theories and artistic ideas behind the film that are even more extensive than my own ramblings. That guy is good. See his video analysis after the cut, though there is about 30 seconds worth of him asking for support at the end of the video.
You know, besides the humorless, the unemployable, alcoholics, angry loners, and anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.
Well, there’s another Pixar movie on the way this year, like some kind of reverse Flintstones, you know, if Fred were Dino’s pet. The Good Dinosaur is coming out Thanksgiving.. See the trailer after the cut.
We here at Gabbing Geek LOVE box office reports. Ok….JUST me and Ryan. Everyone else seems to hate them. We’ve talked a lot about it the last few weeks, so let’s look at the winners and losers of this year’s box office as we wait for the Martian to officially kick off the Fall movie season.
The Alamo Drafthouse is the best theater chain in the country in large part because of their preshow entertainment. The fact that you can order food and drinks from your reserved-ahead-of-time-seat is great, of course, and the special events they host from quote-a-longs to fan festivals are always outstanding. But the clips and commercials and trailers and funny videos that entertain you before the movie starts is what proves the Drafthouse loves movies. Other big theater chains cram commercials down your throats with songs about soda and the latest ABC Family show that will be cancelled in its first season–not the Drafthouse.
The Drafthouse preshow not only sets the stage for the upcoming film but also sets the theater apart from all others. So I was thrilled recently to be electronically introduced to Laird Jimenez (follow him on Twitter!), the man responsible for putting together these amazing shows. Laird agreed to take time from his busy schedule to answer a few Gabbing Geek questions so head after the jump to peek behind the scenes on how it’s all put together!
