I cannot even tell you how many times I have heard that line. Especially as a cinema minor and a self proclaimed "kind of a movie snob" people expect you to see certain films. And when you haven't people tend to judge and/or mock you. So today I am taking matters into my own hands. Today is a new month and the two week mark until I return to school. I plan on putting those two weeks to good use; to watch all of those films I have not seen. There are so many, too many actually.
So here is the plan. Two weeks is fourteen days (wow college must be paying off for me!). In those fourteen days I have left I plan on watching (and blogging about) fourteen movies that I feel ashamed of not seeing. Depending on how these two weeks go I might even extend this little project longer since classes do not start until the 25th of August.
Now, the question is: what films to watch? I have some in mind already: The Matrix, Inglorious Bastards, Memento, and Boondock Saints. Potentially Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy if I can find/borrow it (plus I feel like that is a film you watch with friends). Now, for the rest of the days I need some suggestions. What films is it imperative for me to see? What is your favorite film? Which film changed your life, made you think, laugh, cry...I don't care I just want suggestions. They can be anything, documentary, foreign, I love all genres. When I get some, I will return with my official fourteen day list.
Tonight I am starting with The Matrix (as of right now, could be subject to change).
Let the movie watching begin!
