Last week I struggled, this week, I just needed to do some digging. Blockbuster flops are often something that rub me the wrong way and are usually truly bad. Because honestly, if it flops, there’s usually a reason. Anyway, I’m going off by three factors: 1) they made less than their budget, 2) they are rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and 3) I liked them. By narrowing the blockbuster flops this way, I was able to get together a list of two pretty good movies. The third is the only one that made a little more over its budget.

Last week was quite something, saw two movies, watched an entire television season, sprained my ankle and finished two books. I like the addition of the sprained ankle to my health history, because I’m not much of a sporty person so I’ve never had any proper physical injuries. Now I can say I have a sprained ankle for the first time in my life, sadly it was not a sex injury, like someone suggested (you know who you are!). Plus, it turns out, sprained ankles are not fun! They hurt like hell, I almost blacked out from pain, and it’s impossible to walk – just what I needed to spice up my life!
In the beginning of the year, I shared a two part post highlighting 40 movies of this year that I caught my eye, and now, my list has significantly narrowed. Not only have I lost interest towards some of these movies, but due to my own schedule, I know I can’t manage to see all of them. So, I looked at that list, and added to that list, and finally realized that I need to see these following movies before the end of this year!
The funny thing is, I had planned for a much simpler post. I had a number in mind, 15 and I set out to search for those 15. Then it turned to 30, and now there are 40 movies and this is the second part of that post because to fit 40 into a single post seemed just too extensive (part 1 here). But to clarify, I’m not 100% anticipating to see all 40, I’m simply curious about what’s to come in 2016.
