I don’t know how I got by nor scheduled films before these lists. I am addicted and dependent.

This list comes with the exact same rules and setup as the previous three lists (linked below for YOUR pleasure). Don’t be afraid to ask about a rating or leave a comment about anything below. I thank you again for checking out and following my list in advance.

NOTE I: Short films do count towards the final total for each month/the year end total. I do this for a couple reasons. For one, I recognize short films as professional productions that deserve to be reviewed. Secondly, by not counting short films for the final monthly/yearly total, you’re almost effectively writing off their existence and that you even bothered to watch them. On that basis alone, they should stand their ground and serve as something you watched during said month/year. Finally, there are a barrage of shorts/short film directors that I am personally exploring, so don’t think of the shorts as filler by any means. I’ve been perusing through the short filmography of Laurel and Hardy for nearly a year, I watch the Oscar-nominated Live Action/Animated short films each year. They’re for personal exploration, and benefit me as a film critic, and therefore, they will be counted.

NOTE II: The month of February will feature almost entirely user-requested movies/reviews for the first annual “Steve Pulaski Sees It” event.
