2002 Movie Review

So it’s pretty obvious that we go to the movies a lot. (“”) We mostly blame it on being Southern Californians. It also happens that I’m the type that saves every single stub to every film and event I’ve ever attended. So when the annual film rundown lists started popping up, I thought it’d be fun to post ours as well, since it turned out to be rather impressive. In size, if not in quality. Heh.

Merely the ones we saw upon initial release to theaters, not the ones we saw later in rentals. Because what’s the fun of that?

Our standards and opinions vary widely depending on a variety of factors, as past reviews surely show. We’re usually much more fond of intent over actual product, and we’ll give many things a chance that probably shouldn’t have one. I’m also sure that I might have forgotten a couple of films because the stubs are still floating around my room and not in the box they’re supposed to be in. But overall, it’s a fairly comprehensive list. 46 individual films, 6 with multiple viewings, 7 being the highest multiple viewings. Last viewing listed counts it for that date, even if some were from the previous year. In order of viewing.

*shakes head* And yes, for those of you counting, that *does* end up being more than a film a week. Luckily for us, student discounts, matinees, and occasional free tickets helped alleviate what surely is an obscene price tag. Day-um.
