Here it comes, the long hot days of summer and I have thought carefully about what I could try to accomplish in the days, weeks, and months to come. I think I have come up with an idea that will most likely take up my time for the rest of the year. However, if I complete this task, I will have expanded my knowledge of cinema and my love for the art for then I could ever imagine. Im writing this because, Dear Film Lover, I want you to join me, and together, maybe we can learn something. So I give you:
THE GREAT MOVIE QUEST
The rules are simple. I have a list of 400 films ( as complied by the fantastic movie blog theyshootpictures.com) Take the list and watch as many films as you can, in any order you wish ( I am personally going 1-400) If you have Netflix you should be able to find a great deal of these ( I have found the first 30 at least). Write up a brief viewpoint and post it on Spill. Contact me and let me know what you have watched. You can do this on here, or through my Twitter page (http://twitter.com/greatmoviequest
) or through my email ( email@example.com)
Roger Ebert once wrote that " We live in a box of space and time. Movies are windows in its walls. ". Lets take a look through those windows, into the cinema of the past, and marvel at the history of this great art form.
Happy Viewing!! Here is the full List!
