Among the things I love in life, high on the list is the movie watching experience. Going to a theater, getting some popcorn, settling in, watching the previews (seriously one of my favorite things on earth). The sound, vibrating your chest, the visuals. I love it all. Comedies, dramas, action/adventure, documentary … pretty much any genre I love them all. I really love watching movies.
I also love comedy in general. Stand up in particular. So there is one comedian who also loves movies and I listen to his podcast regularly: Doug Loves Movies (if you like movies and comedy, I highly recommend it). This year, Doug is holding a challenge of sorts. In honor of leap year, watch 366 movies this year. So, I’m going to try it. I discovered it late (about two and a half weeks into the new year) so I’m already behind, but I’m gonna give it a go anyway, because I love movies. I’m hoping it will encourage me to see more movies in the theater, something that my kids and I love to do together. But also, between Netflix and Hulu and the other online streaming services, movies are easy to get and watch.
Now, I’m not a professional critic by any stretch of the imagination, but I am going to also attempt to do a review of sorts when I watch something. Technically, I’ve already reviewed Movie #3: Lazer Team. I will try to come back to #1: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and #2: The Skeleton Twins when I have a chance.
Anyway. Here’s to a shit ton of movies this year!
