Hello again friends, as I usually recap all of the movies I watch month-by-month, I’ve started doing the same as I watch more TV. I feel like June as a month has COMPLETELY flown by and I’ve been reading more than watching much TV, so apologies for the brief nature of this list… However, the ones I’ve got are almost all definitely worth watching and I can’t wait to hear what you guys have been checking out as well!

Monthly Roundup: Movies June 2019
Another month, another post recapping every new movie I’ve seen! Once again, with it being summer, I’ve made it out to see quite a decent amount and with the year now HALF OVER (man…), I’m tracking just ahead of where I was at this time last year with 34 movies down and about 65 to go (a normal 1:3 ratio from first half of the year to second). But with that all said, let’s briefly chat about what I’ve seen these last 30 days!
Five Years of My Movie Thoughts!!!!!
You read that headline correctly friends, we’re officially celebrating FIVE YEARS of My Movie Thoughts!! These past five years have flown by and have been so extremely fun, watching so many new movies and interacting with all of you great folks. I know that the last six months have been a bit of a departure from what I became known for, as I’ve strayed away from posts dedicated to each and every new movie I see, but keeping production of posts down a bit has allowed me to explore some other great avenues within entertainment AND begin planning some video content that I’m excited to share with you all later in the summer.
With that said though, I do need to five you guys another HUGE thank you because none of this would be possibly without any of you. The fact that hundreds of strangers read what I have to say every month is inspiring and quite cool. Though I don’t have anything particularly fun to share right now, I do want to share five of my favorite posts that I’ve done in the past five years.
Let me know if you have a favorite post of mine, whether it be print, video, somewhere in between. I’m always interested in how people heard of me. These, again, aren’t gonna be the five movies I’ve loved the most in the last five years, but they are the five posts I’m the proudest of.
Enjoy and, as always, thank you guys so much for reading 🙂

Black Mirror: San Junipero – Updated Review
Hey all, with Black Mirror returning next week (can’t wait!!), I figured I’d give you guys my updated review of my favorite episode of the show. Spoiler Alert: I still love it. I contend San Junipero is possibly the best single hour of television that I’ve ever seen. So yeah, TLDR: it’s great! However, I wrote this for my Intro the TV class back in the fall (I think I actually wrote the majority of it on my birthday? which was a delightful way to spend some downtime that day) and figured I’d spell out why you guys should definitely watch this episode before the series returns.
No spoilers! Enjoy!
The Hidden World of Non-Verbal Animation
Hey all! Here’s an essay I wrote for my DreamWorks/Pixar class at school this past semester. I was able to discuss the visual style of any DreamWorks or Pixar film and I specifically went out to see the latest How to Train Your Dragon (The Hidden World) so I could write about it (and add it to my list of movies seen in 2019). Since I didn’t give you guys any succinct thoughts on it in February, enjoy this longer discussion!
