Today is the one year anniversary of this website. Over the last 365 days I have written a lot of movie reviews. Some of them have been about all time classics like Raiders of the Lost Ark and some have been about obscure anti-classics like Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars. (Yes, that is a real movie.) Some of them have been funny and some have been serious. Some of them have been focused and some have been a bit scattered. Basically, I have tried to be as versatile in my viewing habits and writing styles as I could, whether that meant talking about an older film in an academic tone or using a newer film as an excuse to open up about my own life, or just being straight-up silly about some nonsense.
Now, I've spent a lot of time over the last few weeks thinking about how to celebrate this milestone, and while it might have been fun to review my all time favorite movie, or to do something stunt-y like live-blog a movie at a drive-in theater, I ultimately decided to just do a straight forward retrospective of my best reviews. Of course, trying to decide what is "best" is tricky in any circumstance, but it was particularly hard here because a) comparing a philosophical review to a comedy haiku review is comparing apples and oranges, and b) I have absolutely no objectivity in this arena. Still, I think I have managed to pick a well balanced cross section that will give you a sense of what this site is all about.
So without further ado, I present: the best of Cat Vs Kirk Year One.
Bonus: Best Liveblog!
