Project 101

Dan attempts to watch 101 movies in 12 months

Project: FAIL! … fail?

Posted by Dan on December 24, 2009

Okay, so the plan didn’t quite go to, well, plan. I’ve watched a few more movies than I’ve blogged about, but to be honest, I’ve had such a whirlwind 2009, I’ve spent most of it trying to get my life back into some kind of manageable routine, so I can devote more time to the actual blogging. I even failed at that too. Seriously though, if you came and found me on January 1st and told me what was going to happen for the rest of the year, there’s no way I’d believe you. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a good 2009, but I can’t help but feel that 2010 is going to be even more awesome.

Mind you, I enjoy having this blog as a constant reminder that I need to see more movies, so in a way, I did what I wanted it to do. I mean, I don’t think I’ve watched High Fidelity once all year, that’s gotta be an accomplishment in itself, right?

So suffice to say, I’ll keep writing into 2010, and honestly, I might just go past 101 and just blog everytime I see a new movie from here until forever? Who knows, maybe if I can get back into the swing of things, I can make up for it and do 202 by the end of next year? HA, okay, maybe I shouldn’t get too far ahead of myself just yet. I do enjoy writing my faux-reviews, and hopefully you enjoy reading them too.

Well, I hope you guys all had a great 2009, and I hope that you’re all currently enjoying your well-earned end-of-year break. It’s time to get outside for a while, spend some time with family, reflect on the year that’s been, then start to make plans for 2010. As for me, I’m taking my girlfriend to my hometown to meet the rest of my family for Christmas, but I’ll be back in a few weeks with more reviews. Who knows, maybe I’ll even score a few DVDs for Christmas!

    First of all: BAHAHAHAHA
    Second: not to freak out this new amazing girlfriend you have, but i think i may be in love with you, Awesome Film Review Author (:. It seems to me that you almost have as much of an obsession with movie watching as i do, and our opinions for the most part have been completely parallel on those you’ve written about so far. I accidentally stumbled upon this ‘project’ when i did a google search for the scene in He’s Just Not That Into You that you quoted, but it was a lucky stumble (:. i read one, and was hooked… Had to read the rest. Thank you for brightening my day.
    I hope to see more of your entirely entertaining cinematic thoughts sometime in 2010.

    Thanks Presley!

    I’ve been massively slack with the movies lately – although I’ve watched a couple lately that have spurred me onto write some entries, so hopefully there’ll be something up in the next few days
