Resolutions 2014: A January Blog Series

new year's resolutions

Hey there you fine folks! So I have an idea for a blog series next month, and I’d like to go ahead and put some feelers out regarding possible participants and/or some brilliant recommendations. Here’s what I’m thinking: I’d like to do a series focusing on films that I’ve been meaning to watch for some time, but I’ve never gotten around to them. For example, I’ve never seen Pulp Fiction. As a movie blogger, I feel this is a gap in my expertise (if “expertise” is what you call it…haha). So next month, I have resolved to watch Pulp Fiction and do a little write-up for it. I hope to do this for mostly well-regarded films, though I may throw in a few stinkers just for fun (I’m seriously considering Sharknado).

So here’s what I’m asking of you: I would love A) your recommendations for movies that I simply must see (if I haven’t already seen them), and/or B) your participation. No pressure on the latter part, of course, but if there’s a film that you’ve been meaning to watch and you have the time to do so, then by all means–write something and send it my way! You can use whatever format you like or you can model it after what I end up doing for my Resolutions posts. I think this could be a fun way to start 2014. At the very least, it’s a way to get some of my resolutions on track. 😉

Plenty of time to mull it over, of course, but if this something you’d be interested in, comment below or shoot me an email (cs227@evansville.edu). And if you have any recommendations, I heartily welcome them. 🙂

  1. I’d be keen to take part. There are loads of films I’ve never seen that I should definitely get in on. My suggestion for you to watch would be Everything is Illuminated.

  2. You have never seen Pulp Fiction…?! 😛 Just kidding. I think we all have those movies we have just not gotten to. Hmmmmmm… I am going to think on this to shoot some films your way, but I would definitely be interested in participating!

  3. You know I’m in for whatever you want to do. There’s a TON of shit I should have seen but never have (since I usually only watch horror movies). We’re talking mainstream Academy Award winning things. I’m sure you’ve probably received a ton of recommendations already but if you need some more – lemme know : )

        • Ok. Just thoroughly creeped your blog and I noticed a few films I love that you haven’t posted reviews for. Not sure if you’ve seen them or not but…Lord of the Rings? Casino Royale and/or Skyfall? Avengers? The Batman trilogy? Pan’s Labyrinth? Shaun of the Dead? Coraline? The Devil’s Backbone (which I discovered this year and loved)? Any on here than strike your fancy?

        • Saving LOTR trilogy for the finale of my Best Pictures, so I have a number of them yet to review beforehand.

          Seen all Bond movies.

          DK trilogy will hopefully come soon.

          Seen all Avengers movies besides Thor 2 (so far)

          Love Pan’s labyrinth and Shaun of the Dead.

          Haven’t heard of the last 2, will see what they are about.

          Thanks

  4. I may be a little late, but after reading your latest Resolutions and seeing that you are extending the deadline, I may be up for one. I know I am late, so I will not be offended if it is a no. I watched Sharnado months back, but I am open to something new. I seen you mention The Devil’s Backbone, and I looked it up. Maybe that one?
