Explaining the movie posts

Looking for employment takes up a lot of my time these days.  It gets frustrating and tiresome and there are days when I just want to smash my computer to pieces and give up.  On those days, so far this year, I’ve been able to hide away for a few hours by watching (and blogging about) baseball.

While I’ll still keep up my baseball blog daily, I wanted to do something else for myself.  I’ve been bouncing around the idea for a while that I wanted to watch all of the movies on the American Film Institutes’s top 100 list.  There are many films that are considered “classic” that I haven’t seen yet (although I just ran the numbers and I’ve already seen 50 out of the top 100 movies on that particular list) and I want to remedy that.

So I’m watching classic movies that I haven’t seen before (not necessarily on that list I linked to above) or that I haven’t seen in a long time and writing about them.  I’ve already watched movies that aren’t considered classic and written about them as well.  As always, I’m writing for me so I’m sure I’ll be all over the place.  It’s good exercise for my brain and writing skills and I’m hoping it will open me up to getting back into the rhythm of watching movies.  Something I’ve lost over the last few years (ever since the fire I was in back in 2002, if I’m being honest).
