As we venture into the great unknown that is June, here are some reflections on my movie watching in May.
One of the ways I watch movies is through my Amazon Instant Video (RIP LoveFilm) subscription. I’m not enamoured with the browsing features offered and I think they should have kept the format that LoveFilm (RIP) had.
Anyway, one thing I’m doing is sorting by production year group. Then as the default sort is by popularity, I’ll go to the last page and select the least popular one that I haven’t seen yet.
I’ve discovered some turds but I’ve also enjoyed others.
You should try it. Tell me if you do.
I love films.
I really do.
My job can be soul destroying so escapism forms a big part of my life and watching movies constitutes a big chunk of that.
I’ve watched films since before I can remember; in fact, one of my earliest memories involves seeing Star Wars at the cinema.
I’ll watch pretty much anything once and there are very few films that I’ll refuse to watch.
This will hopefully be a pretension free area. In no way, shape or form am I trying to be the next Roger Ebert.
I won’t be using this as a movie diary, I have a Letterboxd account for that.
Don’t expect too many reviews…
And now on with the show.
