I decided to revamp my blog this year because I have a little bit more publicity opportunity: the website Letterboxd. You can find me as bigtunalwhs on Letterboxd. On Letterboxd, I will give "teaser" reviews of a couple of sentences of each movie I see. On the blog, I am going to do some expanded reviews, and I'm going to do a couple of different columns too. Last year, my movie goal was to watch 100 different movies that received their non-festival release in 2015. I am at 110 right now, as of writing, which will go up as some of the ones I missed become available on DVD or the last few remaining 2015 movies expand near me in theaters. I have two movie goals this year, which will constitute my different columns:
1. I want to watch an Independent Film, preferably one that I haven't seen, a week. A week to me is Sunday to Saturday. I am not counting New Year's Day and January 2nd as a week. Most of these will come from Netflix. These will be tagged "Ascendant Independents".
2. I want to try to watch AT LEAST half of AFI's 10 Top 10 List in order to watch some of the movies considered the greatest ever made in their genres. At least 10 of these (hopefully) 50 or more will be ones that I have never seen before. (Off to the local library!) These will be tagged "AFI's 10 Top 10".
I will also be doing a bit of awards season coverage, trailer talk, and other news features like that. I hope that my blog proves really interesting to you, and may even encourage you to seek out some great films!
Looking forward to a great year!
I am a huge movie fan that wants to tell people about my very varying taste and opinion of film.
