I see a lot of movies every year. A ton. But this year I’ve decided I don’t see enough movies, so one of my New Year Resolutions was to simply see more. And to write about them. See, that’s the other half of the equation: I see a ton of movies, but I write about comparatively few of them. There are a lot of reasons, but they mainly boil down to the fact that I feel the need to do long form reviews, and sometimes – like in the midst of Sundance – I just don’t have the time.
And so was born this new blog! I aim to make an entry for every single movie I see in 2010. Some entries may be very short, some may be lengthy. Entries may take a couple of days to be posted. Let’s see how long this lasts.
One last thing: one of my main objectives this year is to rewatch more movies. I know this sounds like a strange goal, but there are films I haven’t seen since high school, which means it’s been almost a lifetime since I saw them. Recently I rewatched Black Christmas for the first time since the 1980s, and I might as well have been seeing the movie for the first time. I’m interested in getting a look at some movies I loved or hated twenty or even ten years ago and seeing how I feel about them now.
#13 I Can’t Say.
d. I Can’t Tell You
Last night was my first real press screening of the year, but I can’t tell you what I saw. Not only can I not talk about it, I can’t even tell you the name of the movie. Let’s just say it’s a film coming out in a month or two and it’s really, really good.
What was nice was seeing my old co-worker Mr. Beaks at the screening – he sat next to us and we had a good talk afterwards, along with the movie’s publicist. Beaks had some really good insight, and he noticed a delightful homage at the end that I had missed.
So I guess you’ll read about this in a review soon enough. Sorry for the tease – I knew something like this would happen eventually because I see so many films in advance and am sworn to secrecy on them. I’ll try to work out a better way of doing these “I Can’t Tell You” entries in the future.
