The New Year Movie Resolution Meme

I think it's fair to say that I've been in a bit of a rut lately as far as new posts go. The holiday season can bring strange occurrences, such as a baby shoving a slice of birthday cake bigger than his head into his mouth. And there is the inevitable post-holiday hangover, like a baby that still smells like frosting two days after eating said cake. I don't think I'm the only one who's become a bit stagnant this month, so with that in mind I'm bringing you a new meme to help ring in 2009. Here are the rules:

1. Post a list of nine movie-related resolutions for the new year. These can be as serious or light-hearted as you want them to be, and it also gives you a topic at the end of the year to post about when you take a look back at the resolutions.

2. Tag five other people with completing this meme.

3. Link back to my blog in your post so I can keep track of how many cool people are going along with this, and also for the purpose of compiling a list of the most interesting resolutions.

Before my resolutions, I taggeth thee:

Fletch at Blog Cabins
Bill at The Kind of Face You Hate
Fox at Tractor Facts
Jim at The Moviezzz Blog
Piper at Lazy Eye Theater

Here are my resolutions:

  1. Watch at least two of Steven Seagal's venerable direct-to-video movies.
  2. Start taking advantage of Netflix's on demand movie library.
  3. Watch a Guy Maddin film.
  4. Find a way to see JCVD.
  5. Finally finish my post about Duck, You Sucker!, which I started almost a year ago.
  6. Give The Magnificent Ambersons another chance.
  7. Same with Magnolia.
  8. See at least two foreign films a month.
  9. Find a way to watch Assault on Precinct 13 on Blu-Ray, preferably without having to buy a Blu-Ray player.

Hey Adam:

You should have driven over to Denver where JCVD played for a week. Maybe you should check my Denver Film Society link periodically.

Strangely, I was supposed to be in Denver during JCVD's run there, but the trip fell through. I'm not optimistic that it will make it to Boise, but it looks hugely entertaining and original

You have to give The Magnificent Ambersons another chance? Watching the mesmerizing cinematography, painful and wrenching performance of Agnes Moorehead and captivating tale of the comeuppance of an unreflective, selfish man wasn't enough the first time?

Adam Ross said...

Maybe I'm hoping the ending will be less predictable the second time through, or maybe I just need to see more of Joseph Cotten's half smile. Something tells me I need to see it once more before writing it off for good.

Yeah, thanks for the tag, Adam. This'll be a hard one, I think, but I'll do it anyway, because I'm brave.

And you really should give Magnolia another chance.

This sounds fabulous! It's totally got me thinking. Making a list? That is what I do!

bill r. said...

Mine's up.

Fox said...

Hey Adam-

Thanks for the tag. I didn't see it until just now, but I'm starting my brainstorming at this moment...

1. Spend more time at DVD Panache
