  1. I am glad to see that you have allowed comments.

  2. Do you plan to list any movies prior to 1978?

    1. Nazarenes weren't allowed to go to movies -- it was a major sin. So before I left the Nazarene Church, I saw very few movies in a theater -- maybe four or five my whole life. I saw some pre-1978 movies later, on DVD, but that doesn't count.

    2. Boomer, call your attention to B.O.Y.S. on Your Screen for a number of good film listings from 2007; 2007-2014 and 2015-on.

    3. These are actually movies that I saw in the theater I've seen many more from those years on DVD and streaming services.
      Some of them are indexed under "Movies," but I stopped updating that index several years ago..


No offensive, insulting, racist, or homophobic comments are permitted.
