About My Challenge!

Well, I’m Kate, I’m 19 years old and a bit of a film nut. I’d have to be to even bloody consider doing this! I originate from England and moved to Florida on October 30th 2009. I’m currently on my gap year and therefore have a little bit [too much] spare time on my hands! I love movies and hope to study Film Production at college/university.

My task idea was given to me by the movie Julie/Julia. But I can’t do a year due to me starting college in August next year so I’ve narrowed it down to 7 months starting from the 3rd January 2010 [because I’m travelling from New Jersey on the 1st and 2nd]. I shall try to watch a movie every day/night for 7 months and review it online [probably live as well… dunno, have yet to think that through just yet.] Empire Magazine made a list of the top 500 movies of all time and I managed to get the first 212. Well, that’s a bit of a lie as I cut out the ‘horrors’ [I’m sorry, I just can’t watch them at all] and the ones I studied in my A Levels [I cannot watch A Bout de Souffe or Vertigo again. I know they’re classics but I would end up damaging myself and those around me!]. And there were also the ones that Netflix [which I will be using to watch the films] didn’t have which were only about 3 and they were ‘foreign’ films.

So yes. That’s what I plan to do. There may be the occasion where I don’t watch a film but I’ll try and make up for it with two the next day though dunno if anyone would actualy care or read them ^_^

Dust to dust, for richer or for poorer, in sickness or in health, may the force be with you, because you’re worth it, ahmen and out.

  1. I also borrowed A Bout de Souffe from the college library- it almost killed my love of French films! You will be glad to know they have some new DVDS in the library!(though not much use to you)

    I think your film viewing mission is a brilliant idea, valuable knowledge for when you start university.

  2. Full of admiration ….what a challenge. I am speaking as someone who has been signed off work and laid up recovering from an operation for two weeks. I too have been watching a movie or two each day. Spent a whole afternoon in Atlanta with Scarlet O’H. Like Dances With Wolves there is an “intermission”. Great film though. Never seen before and didn’t know Scarlet is totally 100% bitch. Top Faves though have been Fight Club, Juno (loved ya blog on that one and loved the scan scene….Brenda rocks)and wacky indie called Puffy Chair. No more space! Love you U G x
