Blackjack Movie List - 2016
Sat down and wrote this up for myself back in February, was curious what I would end up putting where and why if I forced myself to put the thought into it. Started out limiting it to 10, then to 20, then I decided to limit myself to just 1 more and to call it a Blackjack list. Simply put, it's my choices for the top 21 movies of 2016, in order. What if life threw you a curveball in 2016 and you were lost at sea? Or what if you were in a relationship with someone who didn't love watching movies as much as you did? Or what if you had a child and you just couldn't get out that much? Or what if some other set of circumstances that I have not correctly hypothesized has led you to the unenviable position of not having seen these 21 fantastic movies? Or what if you simply just enjoy good movies and would like a like a list of good ones to work your way through? If any of this fits you, it's good stuff, I promise. And no genres excluded. Drama, horror, sci-fi, animation, action, thriller, romance, anything and everything, like I said, it's good stuff.
Training & Qualifications
A decent writer who grew up loving movies. As I grew older, in addition to just watching them, I started reading about them. Working on 4 different screenplays, and when it comes to creating I have experience writing, directing, acting, producing, scoring, and editing (my personal favorite) but all only with shorts so far. During college I was told by someone that I would trust that I should be writing about movies professionally. I have a Bachelor's in Broadcasting but more to this point I have a Minor in Film Studies and am looking into going back for a Master's in the same.
