So I had all these big plans for this year. I was going to watch all these movies from the AFI project and then that just didn’t happen. Because there was a long time this year when I couldn’t focus on books or movies, I’m now really behind in my review schedule and that means that I’m not going to be able to watch something like 40 movies.
But I do want to watch at least some of them, so I decided that what I would do is pick two movies from the first five categories of my big pop culture project (two Best Picture winners, two from the AFI 100 Best, two from 100 Thrills, two from 100 Passions, and two from 100 Laughs). One from each category is a rewatch and the other is one that I’ve completely missed up til now.
Best Picture: The Godfather Part II (rewatch) and Amadeus (new)
100 Best: On the Waterfront (new) and All About Eve (rewatch)
100 Thrills: Dog Day Afternoon (new) and Bonnie and Clyde (rewatch)
100 Passions: Sabrina (rewatch) and The Shop Around the Corner (new)
100 Laughs: Harold & Maude (new) and The Apartment (rewatch)
I’m also going to do two from the Best Of Movie (for a given year) lists, two from the best musicals list and two from the 10 Best in 10 Genres (also a new and a rewatch for each).
I’m going to watch Gangs of New York (new) and Collateral (rewatch), Singin’ in the Rain (rewatch) and Funny Girl (new) and Caddyshack (new) and Rear Window (rewatch).
I hope this works. :)
