An ill-favoured thing sir, but mine own

21 year-old college student, part time supermarket deli clerk, occasional club kid. Shouting at the world, because nobody is listening. Day after day, week after week, nothing ever changes. Is this all that I am, all I will ever be?

 

Julie Powell used Julia Child’s cooking to fill a void in her life. Unfortunately, I don’t have hours every day to prepare a boeuf bourguignon, nor do I have family that would appreciate that sort of thing. However I’ve always had a passion for two things: writing and film. Ideally, I would like to combine them to try and find some sense of purpose.

 

So, i’ve created this blog. Over the next year, starting on 17 November 2010, I will watch and review 400 different films. I’m going to try to hit all the major genres, though i’ll probably go through some stretches of movies with similar plots/themes, and write a comparative analysis. As far as film selection, I’m definitely open to suggestions. I have a feeling that Blockbuster and Netflix are going to become my very good friends over the next year.

I’m sure that over this year, you will also be treated to my opinions on a wide variety of issues, and there will likely be some deep personal revelations. My hope is that by the end of this crazy ride, you will know me much better than you do now.

 

Can I find some meaning in my life through studying the silver screen? The challenge is 365 days, 400 films. Can I do it?
