Movies I watched in 2018

Hello, again all you movie lovers!

We are now two days into 2019! Ahh!! This is so exciting!! Like the two years before I will be posting the list of new-to-me movies I watched this year. I re-watch so many movies a year that I can't keep track of them, so I am just posting the new ones. Here is my list from 2016 and my list from 2017.

Ones with a ~ means I saw it in a theater.
Ones with an asterisk (*) means I saw it more than once.
If I have reviewed it I will put the link to my review.
To be on this list I must have seen more than half of it, the ending, and cannot have missed more than half an hour of it.


Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)*, I have seen this like, 20 times since I first saw it on Jan. 6th!

Love Actually (2003), I liked bits of it, but really didn't like other bits.

Total: 71.

It was funny, this was the year that I had seen the most movies in a theater, but they were all just spur of the moment decisions. Last year, every movie I saw in the theater I had been really waiting for it for a long time. The only one that I was looking forward to this year was Robin Hood.


Robin Hood BBC (2006-2009) [RE-WATCH], Season 1, 2, and the first episode in Season 3.
Downton Abbey, Season 6, episode 3-7. (I know, I know! When in the world am I going to finish it!?? It all depends on my sister.)
Gilmore Girls, Season 1, episodes 1-6. 5 other episodes from random seasons.
BBC's Little Women, 3 episodes.
Poirot, 1 episode.

Also, new year, new header!
It's a little "spring-y", but my little sister did make it last July, and I'm only putting it up now! They all have to do with people in movies reading, except the middle where they "meet". It is also her attempt to get me to watch Inkheart, but she hasn't succeeded yet.

I'm thinking that this next year I'm going to do this like I do the books, where I only put the images on the top 10, but this is one of my most read posts of the year (usually), so what do you want to see?

Thanks for reading! Have you seen any of these movies? What do you think of them?



  1. Ooh, what did you think of The Nutcracker?? I haven't seen it yet. Still a bit skeptical, but I want to.

    Also, so glad you're a fan of the Sherlock Holmes movies now, too. :D

    1. The visuals are really stunning, and it was really fun to see on the big screen, but I'm not sure I'll rewatch it soon. The make-up was really weird, though. The actors all did a great job, but it goes really quickly! I still am not sure what I think, but my little sister loved it.

      Oh yes! They are so fabulous! And, quotable! :)

  2. *whispers*
    I actually like the Sherlock Holmes with RDJ better then the BBC version...

    1. I've never seen the BBC TV show, but from what I've read about it, I still think that nothing can beat the RDJ versions. :)

  3. So many movies. Love Sherlock Holmes and 10 things I hate about you.

    1. Oh yeah! SH is excellent, but I'm still not sure about 10TIHAY, I think if I watch it one more time I'll like it!

  4. This is such a fun post!! ALL THOSE MOVIES! Seeing all of those movies makes me behind watching movies. :)

    The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, I want to see this one since the trailer was released! Is it any good?

    1. Thanks, Rachel! Heehee, there are quite a few! I might have watched too many this year... :)

      As I was telling Elanor in a comment above, it is really fun to watch because the costumes, sets, and CGI is outstanding! The storyline... it really depends on your own opinion. It goes really quickly. I like to think of it as a sequel to the original play!! I think you'd like it!

  5. I have seen some of these. Mr. Magoo, Around the World in 80 days, Storks, The Lego Movie,and Zootopia are some of my favorites. Did not like Despicable me 3 too much. The second one is the best.


    1. I wasn't sure if I would like Mr. Magoo, or AtWi80D, but I did! It's fun to watch a comedy every now and then. Agreed, I think the second one is my favorite! Probably because it has a bit of a mystery. ;)

  6. Ooh--I love The Emperor's New Groove! And Gilmore Girls--I was just rewatching season 3 this morning. XD

    1. Hey, Kara! Thanks for the comment! I can't believe that I had missed out on TENG for so long! It's great! XD My progess on GG is pretty slow, but I hope to get to season 3 eventually!

  7. I really like the show Robin Hood!- Jose

    1. It is a lot of fun to watch. I finally got my sister to watch it with me this year!
