It's come to my attention that I have seen a very small amount of important films. I plan to remedy this unfortunate situation by attempting to watch 700 films by the end of 2011. I am not a film critic and I do not claim to know a whole lot on the subject of film. I'm merely a community college student taking an introductory film class, hoping to eventually attend art school. I have a lot to learn, yes. And I think this will help. I hope to familiarize myself with directors, writers, actors, cinematographers, and such especially. So, here you will find very short blurbs about the movie I watched today, or yesterday, or the day before that, yep. Who knows maybe soon I'll be blogging about the intricate usage of angles and lyrical movement, and mise-en-scène, and dominant and subsidiary contrasts! But for now just what comes to mind.

Sorry, I believe I went a little overboard. I'm somewhat of a film enthusiast and I'm not sure your taste in film, so I attempted to suggest a bit of everything.
I myself am trying to watch 500 films this year, so best of luck to you! Enjoy! :D
Thank you very much for this long list, you could never go overboard! I’ve seen a few of these, and the rest all look really amazing.@2 years ago
demasticlese asked: i take it you don't do horror flicks as i don't recall you doing one for here. i've had this one dvd for years and haven't gotten around to watching it. so could you watch it for me and tell me what you think? its the machinist with christian bale. thanks heaps and loads of a lot =) oh, btw, make more vids on your youtube will ya? kthxbai
I love horror movies. I’ve probably seen more horror movies than any other genre of movie. However I’ve never seen The Machinist, which I think is more of a thriller, but it’s been sitting in my Netflix queue for ages, so I’ll watch it and let you know in a couple hours!@2 years ago with 1 note
I’ve been watching tons of films, but have not been utilizing this blog whatsoever for two months. I have no explanation. But I’m going to start using this again. Don’t let me slack off again guys! Seriously, yell at me through the internet if I neglect this project. Because “What I hear when I’m being yelled at is people caring loudly at me” -Leslie Knope.
thecrashblossoms asked: Have you seen The Brothers Bloom? It has a very Amelie vibe, but it's a con story. The cast is amazing, and the costuming is timeless and practically perfect. It may very well be my new favorite film.
Also, you have awesome taste in movies.
I haven’t. You make it sound really interesting! I’ve added it to my queue. Ha, thank you.@2 years ago
jaireaux asked: Here's some foreign films you should hunt down.
Must See Japanese Films
- Golden Slumber - man framed for murder reconnects with old friends
- Fish Story - in 3 different eras, punk song saves the world
- Love Exposure - you won't believe it's four hours (no joke)
Eastern European films that aren't LTROI
- The Substitute(2007) - young students are suspicious of their substitute
- Fighter (2007) - Muslim immigrant girl in Denmark wants to learn Karate
- Sound of Noise(2010) - based on Music for 1 Apartment & 6 Drummers
Guessing your age, I have to recommend a movie about a local: Zombie Girl.
p.s. I counted 208 films I saw last year, and my friends think I'm a lightweight.
Yay foreign films! All have been added to my Netflix queue. Thank you!@2 years ago
