Rules of Project #1
I will watch all of the films on AFI's 100 years 100 movies within one year. I have recently reinvested in Netflix, and am due to receive Ben Hur in the next couple of days. When that happens, the countdown begins. I will try and post my blog entries within 24 hours of viewing each film. The postings may be critical, whimsical, or random. I intend on just writing about the film in whatever way feels natural, and hopefully begins the dialogue.
Now I understand that whenever you discuss a list of any kind there can be some heated debate. Know that I am not suggesting that the AFI Top 100 is the definitive list. It's not the list to end all lists. Still the list is easily accessible, and all of the films on it are important, even if you disagree that they are "the greatest of all time."
So join me for some, or all of this project. Watch films at your leisure or at the breakneck pace I intend. I think this will be a good time.
