I have been writing reviews for several years now. This is strictly a recreational thing, just to get the ideas and thoughts out of my head. I could of course do this at home on my computer, but then nobody could benefit from it. Enter the internet. I have always wanted to review every movie I watch, no matter how old or how often I had already seen it. This conflicted with the thought that a reviewer should only review new movies.
At the beginning of 2012 I decided to go for it. I wanted to review every movie I watch during this year. It’s a lot of work, I know, but it is enormously satisfying to look back at your work and say, “I wrote X amount of pieces this year!”. My goal is to watch at least 300 movies this year. Having two kids and something that resembles a life makes this quite a challenging feat. But I will succeed, darn it!
May 26, 2012: At the moment I am approaching the 100 mark and I have watched almost all of Ridley Scott’s movies. Next retrospective will be Jim Jarmusch, but more on that later. For now, I have several drafts in the works, so stay tuned.
