2015 Roundup

new year 2016

Not actually my feet. Apologies, person whose feet I borrowed from the interwebz.

Happy New Year’s Eve to all you lovely people!!! Another year done. It’s hard to believe, huh? But as far as movies go, it was a pretty solid 365 days. Especially these last few months. Granted, some less than satisfactory movies also made their way to theaters, but I’d say the good outweighed the bad, wouldn’t you? Anyway, per usual, I decided to put together a little post detailing the good, the bad, and the plain ol’ ugly in my movie/TV experiences this year. Ready to see ’em? Then let’s do it!

  1. Happy New Year, Cara!! Oh hell YEAH The Force Awakens was the best movie! Loved it loved it – still trying to get over getting no sleep after going to the first midnight showing then working the next day. 😉 But… Wow…. The Hunger Games is high on your list! Hmm. I still can’t believe I didn’t get a chance to see The Martian considering that I adored that book. Oh well. Gotta save some movies to watch at home. 🙂

  2. Great roundup lady! I hope that you have a fantastic 2016 🙂

    Emailed you yesterday about the Resolutions post I must send you – I am so glad to see the deadline is January 10. You will have your review then 🙂

    • Thanks, Zoe! I hope your 2016 is fantastic as well! 😀 Yep, I did get your email and answered it a little bit ago. I can’t wait to see what you think of your choice!!

  3. I need to check out Daredevil, I keep forgetting! Nice post Cara. OH and hello dear I haven’t been on here in so long, I am trying to get back into the swing of things and catch up with everyone’s blogs. So if you see tons of comments from me… that’s why. haha 🙂

    • Aww welcome back, lady! Missed ya! And you TOTALLY need to check out Daredevil. Jessica Jones, too, for that matter. Both so good. You won’t regret either of them.

      • Thank you and I am happy to be back. Feels like I am coming back home after being gone for a while. Back to the comforting arms of our friendly blogging friends. hahaha. I did see Jessica Jones and loved it, gotta see Daredevil next!
