A Luddite Robot Year-In-Review

It’s New Year’s Eve! Now that we’ve taken care of the Best of 2016, why not read some shameless Luddite Robot self-promotion?

For better or worse, your impressively humble narrator managed to post quite a few pieces in 2016. Some are better than others, but all of them have one thing in common: namely, words. Here’s a moment to highlight some of the words I consider worth a look. Consider this an end-of-year In Case You Missed It. None are “essential” but I like them well enough. Maybe you will, too — and if you’re not careful, you just might learn something!

Unlike Matt Singer at ScreenCrush, I haven’t come up with a list of film-related resolutions for the new year. I have a few ideas, though, which you can expect to be reflected here. I’ve pledged to watch 52 films by women, a seemingly easy hurdle to clear but one that, based on 2016 viewing, I apparently (and rather embarrassingly) need to emphasize for myself. I plan to keep the Great Movie Project and its Counter-Programming going, and double-down on the Vegan Horror series.

Finally, I will make a concerted effort to include more interviews, both because I find the experience fascinating and readers seem to enjoy them, and I will once again try to expand Luddite Robot to include other voices besides mine. (Contact me if you’re interested.) Beyond that, I guess we’ll see. Let me know if you have ideas!

In any case, here are some favorites that I consider worth your time. See you in 2017.
