So, the economy is in the toilet. I’m desperately trying to keep my personal finances from spiraling more out of control than they already have and because of this I am going out less and less frequently to the new movies in the cinema.
So it got me to thinking the other day. “What about all those movies on my shelf?” I mean really, at last count there were over 300 movies on my DVD shelf.
Can you imagine? If I watched those at a rate of 1 film a week, it would take me six plus years to watch all of those movies.
How cool is that?
And it won’t cost me anything. And best of all, I can go back and watch those films with a new eye. A filmmaker’s eye. I’m going to use this blog to analyze those films. I’m not sure how detailed those reviews and analysis will be. I have a feeling it will vary from week to week. But I will use this blog as a chance to “educate” myself more on the history, methods, and styles of filmmakers from all areas, genres and eras.
This should be a lot of fun. Now, the question is what film do I start with?
I’ve narrowed it down to a few that I think would be fun to begin with. What are your thoughts on these films?
- Schindler’s List (I’ve never even opened the DVD)
- What Dreams May Come
- The Breakfast Club
I hope that you’ll give me your input on this, and I sincerely hope that you follow along on my cinematic journey. Who knows? Maybe some of my reviews will spark an interest for you in watching a film you’ve never seen, or an old classic that you’ve forgotten?
This should be fun! Be sure to leave your comments below!
