The Fourth Annual TDYLFies

It's a major award!

It’s a major award!

The end of the year is just around the corner, which means it’s time for the annual flurry of best and worst movie lists. I haven’t seen nearly enough movies released this year to make a list like that. Thankfully, I’ve established a year end wrap-up list of my own– the TDYLFie awards. It’s a list comprised of the best in movies (that I’ve seen this year only). This is more of a list about my own experience watching movies this year than it is about anything that was released in this year. Without further delay, here is the awards program for the 4th Annual TDYLFies. Continue reading

The Third Annual TDYLFie Awards

It's a major award!

It’s a major award!

The end of the year is just around the corner, which means it’s time for a bunch of lazy journalists to do their year-end best and worst lists. But why should they have all the fun? I’m lazy too.

In reality, this is more of a list about my own experience watching movies this year than it is about anything that was released in this year. Without further delay, here is the awards program for the 3rd Annual TDYLFies. Continue reading

2010: The First Annual TDYLFies

A quartet of what would've been 2008 TDYLFie Award Nominees

I can’t recall every single movie I’ve seen this year. I do know, however, that probably 75% of the movies I’ve seen have been via Netflix. And having no record of the other 25% (which Netflix used to have with the use of a chronological ratings history slider, but I don’t want to get back into the whole Netflix thing again), I’m forced to make my year-end awards selections strictly from the rentals I’ve gotten through Netflix. Using only the list of things I’ve seen via Netflix in 2010, let’s hand out some film awards, which I’m calling TDYLFies (phonetically: ta-dill-fees). Why call ’em that? Why not?  Continue reading
