The 2012 New Year’s Resolutions: Wrapping Up, Looking Ahead

It all started at the end of 2011, when I saw An American Werewolf in London (1981) and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989) on the big screen. It ignited the idea that I should see as many classic films as possible on the big screen in 2012. To sweeten the pot, I added multiple other resolutions, and tackled them with fervor in 2012. With only two weeks left in the year, it’s time to wrap everything up, see how far I’ve come, and start looking ahead to 2013. Continue reading

The AFI 100 Laughs Experience

As regular readers of this site know, I’ve made it my goal to watch the entire AFI 100 Years, 100 Laughs list in 2012. When I started the process, I had already seen 57 films, leaving me with 43 to watch. It’s more or less consumed my movie-watching this year, and with good reason. It’s been an enlightening experience. Admittedly, I’m putting the cart before the horse here a little bit. I still have three more to go before I can cross everything off the list. That said, I’ve enjoyed the 40 that I’ve seen enough that I wanted to share some observations. Continue reading

The New Year’s Resolutions: Second Update

A month ago, I updated my progress on my various New Year’s movie-watching resolutions. There’s one more month in the books now, and I’m continuing to chisel away at my goals. I have to admit, progress has slowed down a bit this month with work and various social activities keeping me busy. Still, progress is progress: Continue reading

Tracking the New Year’s Resolutions: The First Turn

2012 is approximately 6 or 7% of the way complete. There is a long, long way to go. However, it’s awfully easy for people to fall off the horse with regards to their New Year’s resolutions, even this early in the year. I am not one of those people, not yet anyway. I’ve gotten a great jump on many of the movie-watching resolutions I made three weeks back. Since it also serves as an opportunity to let everyone know what I’ve been watching, here’s how I’m doing on each of my resolutions: Continue reading
