I am a movie junkie. I will watch just about any kind of film at the drop of a hat. And yet, there are some movies that I have not seen, for various reasons. It’s hard to describe exactly why I’ve not seen them, though. Some are because of perceived personal taste, while others are because of lack of enthusiasm. So, thanks to Cinema Shame, I now have a chance to see if my reasons were valid. So, over the next 12 months, the movies I want to watch are:
January – Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)
February – Raging Bull (1980)
March – Taxi Driver (1976)
April – Singin’ In The Rain (1952)
May – Mary Poppins (1964)
June – The Nutty Professor (1963)
July – Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)
August – The Wizard of Oz (1939)
September – Fight Club (1999)
October – Se7en (1995)
November – Mean Streets (1973)
December – It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
This list is, I hope, just the start. I want to make it my movie watching mission this year to start watching movies starring people other than the usual suspects. I want to thank my online network of movie watching buddies for really engaging my love of film.
If I have more titles (and I’m sure I will), I will definitely add to this list.
It’s gonna be a fun year.
Addendum: I might add to this list as the year goes on, so I figured why not go ahead and start now? Given that I’m gonna explore early Scorsese this year, I came across After Hours (1985) for cheap, so I’m adding it to the total. I don’t know when I’ll watch it, but I will.
