Continuing to Build My Film Palette

Yet again I have once again spent my time to build up my film palette by trying to watch 100 films I have never seen before within 100 days. I originally began this adventure goal this Summer with trying to do the exact same thing, which I completed in 93 days. You can check out the first successful attempt right here.

As for this second time around, I finished in 92 days. I some how also managed to have time to watch all three seasons of Mad Men and during October I tend to watch a horror movie once a day. So I also have spent my time watching old movies that I have seen before.

This time around I tried watching classics, but also tried to keep up to date with current films out there and branch out to more independent films as well. As you may see in the list I added dates to note my progress and I started off very very slowly with only have watched 32 films in the first 46 days. But as you can tell the next 46 days, leading up to the finish, I had been able to finish my goal and watch an astonishing 68 films within that time. I can’t really explain how I was able to do it, especially with having to work, but I did it. It is practically 1.5 movies in the second half.

You can see all the movies on my 100 films within 100 days after the jump!
