52 Weeks, 52 Movies (Give or Take a Few)

Because last year was such a lame year in terms of me seeing new movies, I’ve decided that this year is going to be different.  It has to be different.  Movies are a huge part of who I am, and by not seeing them I am simply losing little pieces of myself and turning into someone who’s not very interesting.

So I’ve decided to take on another task this year:  To watch at least one new movie a week.  That’s it.  Just one.  If I happen to see two, then that’s awesome.  If I see three, that’s freaking extraordinary.  But all I’m asking for is ONE.  It sounds so easy – to someone who probably doesn’t have kids, that is.  Seriously, my kid freaks out if I attempt to watch anything that’s not related to Nickelodeon or Disney.  But Netflix is filled to the brim with movies that I want to see, and if I just make the effort, whether it’s watching them on my iPad or laptop with headphones, I know it can be done.

So my goal for this blog is to right about the new movies I’ve seen at the end of each month, which should be roughly around five movies per post.  Unless of course I become super determined and start watching a new movie every night.  But I won’t get ahead of myself.  I have a kid.  And books to read.  And Doctor Who and Sherlock to watch.  I’ve got priorities, people.

Of course there will be the days when I find the time to watch a movie and all I want to do is curl up on the couch and watch me some Harry Potter, which is totally acceptable.  Sometimes my mood overrides my brain, thus resulting in “comfort watching” (like “comfort reading” but, you know, with movies).  But I promise I will do my best to explore the unknown.

So what movies did the month of January bring me?  Stay tuned…



I have way too much information floating around in my head, which is why I write things down. I find that books, movies, music, and television are much more interesting than my local news.

  1. You may have a hard time believing this, but…I’ve just seen The Two Towers for the first time ever. That was my new movie for January. And now all I want to do is watch it over and over and over again! (Well, I also want to see Return of the King. And yes, that will be a new movie for me too. I hope you haven’t fainted yet.)
