I’ve been thinking for a while that I should keep a record of the movies I see at the cinema and my thoughts on them. There’s a few reasons for this. Firstly I’ve been paying for a pretty expensive cinema card for a couple of years now, and I’d like to get some idea of how much value I’m getting out of it (rough estimate – I need to see around two movies a month to make the card worth it). Secondly I think it’d be interesting to look back at the films I saw this year to get an idea of what I liked and didn’t like. The bonus third reason is that it gives me something to write about in this blog, which has been lacking in content for some time. Now that we’ve entered 2016 it seems like as good a time as any to start.
I’m not planning to write formal reviews, more just a collection of my thoughts after seeing each film, so I’m not sure how useful this will be from a recommendation point of view. I’m also not sure how I’ll be treating spoilers yet. Still, if you want to read and discuss in the comments feel free.
As per usual I’ve already left a month between doing something and blogging about it, so I’m going to put up several posts over the next couple of days for the three movies I saw in January.
