One Year, A Whole Lot of Movies

Exactly one year ago, May 17, 2009, I embarked on a mission to watch many films that I have never seen before within the time frame of a year. My shame list was pretty large and very embarrassing if you would like to call yourself a film geek. My mission started as a little with 100 films by the end of Summer, but it grew into a monster task of trying to watch over a year’s worth of films I have never seen before in less than a year.

One year later and I have completed my journey with a final film count of 390 watched that I have never seen before. With watching so many films in a year it’s getting hard to see new films, but I still want to give this a go into round 2 starting today. If you have any suggestions on what films I need to see, LET ME KNOW! You can read about my  365 mark at my old post and see what other films I have seen. You can check out the other 25 films after the jump!

Looking back at all the films, I have learned a lot in film tolerance and what really makes a good film. From learning to really enjoy animated movies and sitting down to watch all three Godfather movies in a row, it has been a really fun trek through cinema. With 2009 being a pretty good year of film helped out a lot to get me through this mission, but catching up on a lot of old movies to cross off the shame list was also enjoyable too. Hopefully I can get through another year and another 365 films I have never seen before.
