Goals, Plans and More for 2013

Well, another year is upon us and I’m going to shake things up by giving myself a new set of goals and a new focus for my blog.  For one, I am going to put my segment of “Movies I Should Have Seen By Now” on hiatus because of the sheer amount of films I have to see to catch up with the rest of my blogging peers.  If I write a review for each and every classic movie I see I fear I will have very little time left over to watch the movies in the first place, let alone do silly things like eat, sleep, go to classes, etc.  For the same reason of time constraints I am putting a hold on my Polish That Turd segment for the time being.  I love the segment itself but I will try to get one or two in every now and then.

That being said, the breaks I’m taking on those segments will be filled with weekly “Two Cents Worth” questions, as well as my new goals for 2013:

1.  Watch and review every movie released on at least 1,000 screens nationwide in 2013

2.  Watch and review every movie nominated for a significant Academy Award for 2012

You heard me right, I will make it my mission to watch and review EVERY movie that gets a wide release in the coming year.  I might not always be able to get everything on the weekend it comes out, but I’ll do my best to be timely as possible.

With regards to #2, a “significant academy award” includes everything except for Documentaries, shorts, or Foreign Film (which is an issue of availability for me, not national prejudice).

I’ll begin this Friday with Texas Chainsaw 3D, Promised Land and The Impossible.  Wish me luck!

I'm a student at the University of Washington Majoring Business. I've always loved movies and my goal is to work on the financial side of the film industry. Until then though, I figure I'll spare my friends from my opinions and shout them from a digital mountaintop for anyone who's interested. After all, if a tree falls in a forest and nobody blogs about it, does it really happen?

  1. Very interesting goals. Best of luck 🙂 Looking forward to your reviews! About the Oscar nominees, will you also be reviewing those in the sound editing and mixing categories?

  2. Wow, you might just have the hardest goals out of everyone I’ve heard from.

    Good luck dude. Seeing every movie will be tough (so much junk gets a wide release) but will be very interested to see how you go.
