So what do I do? How do I attack these movies? Suddenly I had an idea….”Light Bulb!”. What if I take all the movies I own, put them on slips of paper, put those papers in a box and everyday/everytime I watch a movie I pull a slip and I have to watch whatever is chosen! So that is what is going to happen. At least 4-5 times a week I will watch a movie at random. Could be any of the 360 movies I own. Some days it could be The Goonies or on another days it's Groundhog Day.
What makes this even more interesting--Even more DANGEROUS. Is that included in that 360 are the movies that are owned by my wife that I would never ever bought on my own or owned if I weren't married to her. So, against my better judgment I could be setting myself up to enjoy such great movies as Fiddler on the Roof, the Bob Hop/Bing Crosby classic Road to Bali or the Sound of Music (on blu-ray!). About 25 of the 360 movies are ones that I have not only never seen, but wouldn’t ever have watched in my worst nightmares if it weren't for this challenge. But since my wife is in on this and has worked so hard (pictured) to help design the blog I feel like she deserves some humor (torture) from this. So they are lurking in the box wanting to get me when I least expect it.
So I say 4-5 a week minimum are movies selected from the magical movie box (pictured). Some weeks all 7 can be from there, but since we are avid movie goers I will blog about the movie we see in theatre on the days we get that opportunity. For example, this morning we went and saw The Dilemma. Good movie with Kevin James and Vince Vaughn. I would come home and blog about that movie. Also throw in the mix are movies that we may rent or download. Also movies we go to buy or are given to us as gifts. I will also take movie suggestions on what to watch. I've also thought of “theme weeks” I can do with my movies like a week of Adam Sandler or moves based on real life etc.
So that is the plan of attack and the journey I am setting out for the next year. Please join me as I watch 365 movies in one year! Most days I won't even know what I am going to watch. But the magical movie box will decide. So whether it’s a movie I love like Rudy or one that I am dreading like Road to Rio (no clue, another Bob Hope/Bing Crosby “classic” my wife owns) it will be interesting and fun……and DANGEROUS!
