2015: Movies and Books Edition

As promised in my recap, here’s the list of movies I watched and books I read, along with the respective ratings I gave them. If you’re curious about what the ratings stand for in Brownlandia, read this post here. The post deals with movies, but the book ratings are pretty much the same way. If you don’t want to read that, just take them for whatever you want. This is the website where points don’t matter… oh, wait… yeah…

Anyway, here’s the list. It’s lengthy, due to the sheer number of movies, so you can certainly TL;DR this sumbitch, if you want. IF you read through, leave a comment if you agree or disagree about any of my ratings. I welcome the conversation.

  1. Glad we agree on Maggie. Personally, I loved it. Not really horror, but a great take on the zombie theme.

  2. Agreed. I heard a lot of complaints about how slow it was, how it wasn’t bloody enough, zombie enough… pretty much everything.
