“Sometimes there’s no lesson. That’s a lesson in itself.”

It’s April, you guys and I still don’t quite know what to say about 2015. It was kind of subpar? Sometimes the movies I really hated would make $652 million dollars and sometimes I would accidentally see a movie I saw in 1977 already. Plus the movies I liked were musicals on Broadway about the founder of the Coast Guard and experiencing a ticket broker feeding frenzy reminiscent of that time I tried to eat tacos in front of a Weimaraner.  Plus more than anything else, the U Talkin’ U2 to me podcast continued to rock my world

I liked Love and Mercy quite a bit. I tried to be a good filmgoer and go to a bunch of movies at the beginning of award season but after I saw Spotlight I pretty much thought I wouldn’t see anything better so I stopped trying. There’s some… revulsion is not a good word for it… but I look at the trailers and advertising and marketing of a lot of movies and have no interest. I know, invest in a drive to the local independent cinema. I honestly tried but had some time management issues in 2015 that curtailed my movie watching in general. It’s a scandal that with such time constraints I still sought out movies I knew would be at best problematic and at worst really horrible. But come on how funny are those car movies where they never stop talking about family and the timelines are all crazy? And that whale movie was B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

So maybe 2016 will be pretty cool with Keanu and the lady Ghostbusters and Martin Freeman being Brooks Brothers Man in “Captain America: Civil War – No Not That One, A Different One”. Also did you know they still make the Star Track movies and the billionth one is coming out on my birthday?

I just looked at a list of movies coming out in 2016 and it made me a little sad. There are lots of sequels, you guys! But Emma Watson has a few movies coming so that’s cool. And something called Bill Hader R Rated Comedy which is somehow the minimum and maximum information I need to make plans to see it right now.

I’m sorry I don’t have any recipes/menus for the Oscars (and that this is 6 weeks late for that.) But, here is a list of great stuff from 2016!
