And since I’ve got something of a platform here, I wanted to periodically update you on my progress and tell you what I’ve been thinking so far. (If you want to keep up with my progress, you can follow along on the Letterboxd list I update each time I watch another film.)

That I missed out on that Family Ties episode where Alex P. Keaton plays the part is my one regret in life.

    Like so many other things, though, my movie watching habits had to evolve when my wife and I had a baby. It simply wasn’t feasible to set aside an entire month to watch slasher movies and write a detailed analysis of each one. So in 2018, I set a different kind of goal for myself: to watch as many superhero movies as possible, and in the case of those I’ve...
