My last activity on this site was in July 2013. A few of you might be wondering what happened. The truth is, I lost my motivation. As much as I loved writing movie reviews, I wanted to try something grander. I moved to writing fiction. And it was a disaster. I just couldn’t get my words together. I lost all motivation to write anything. So I just let this site set here and rot. But I’ve practiced a bit lately, and i’m ready to start again.
I recently discovered the book 1001 Movies to See Before You Die through another site. It’s a great resource for film fans and it has introduced me to several films I want to check out. In fact, it introduced me to so many, i’m going to watch them all. Not just the current list of 1,001,all the films that have been removed over the 10 editions. As of right now, the total stands at 1,154. I’ll start with the ones I own on DVD and Blu-ray, which includes many of the newer films. I’ll track my progress on letterboxd, writing a short summary before writing a longer review here.
I hope to commit to actually writing this time, instead of just giving up like last time. I can only hope that this will be the start of a long, prosperous journey.
