The Best & Worst Movies of 2023

One of my favorite things about my first North Carolina apartment was how comfortably big (but still kind of small) my living room was. The distance between the couch and the television made watching TV more enjoyable, which means I got a whole lot of TV watching in this year. Of course, I also have to thank the quick work of streaming services for easy access to star-studded works.

These are all of the movies I watched in 2023, in their respective three categories:

All of the Tomatoes: As in, if I ran Rotten Tomatoes, I would give them a high percentage (and I’m sure the great people at Rotten Tomatoes would disagree with me).

One-Liners: If you say a line or two, or name five people from the cast, my memory will (hopefully) remember taking in that body of work.

Eye Sores: I don’t know what I visually witnessed, but I don’t want to witness it again.
