Movie Roundup: The Last Six Months Edition

There’s simply no way I’m going to be able to write about this massive backlog of movies I’ve watched over the last six months.  And since I’m trying anyway to transition from writing a little bit about every movie I’ve watched to writing a lot about the movies that most catch my interest, it seems kind of foolish to keep this list of films staring at me, waiting for me to write about them and judging me when I don’t.  So I’m just going to list them here, along with their current ranks in The Big List.  Since my current plan for The BIg List is to have updatable entires for every movie in every year (I’ve done the first two already), these will all eventually get written about, at least a little, someday far into the distant future.  Some I hope to write about in more depth, I have ambitions of posts about King Vidor, Raoul Walsh, Satyajit Ray and pre-Code films dancing around my head, laughing at me.
