A very long time ago I came across a website. WordPress. How exciting!! I love to write, especially when I don’t have to see or know the audience. But what would I write about? I doubt people care about my everyday life and honestly, I didn’t have the time to do it anyway.
About a month ago I picked up a ‘Special Collectors Edition’ of Empire at the newsagent… The 500 Greatest Movies Of All Time. My initial thought was how awesome it would be if I could watch them all! And it clicked. I finally had something to write about.
Ever seen ‘Julie & Julia’? Well that’s where I got the idea and when I realised the enormity of the challenge it became so much more exciting. But why go to all the trouble of watching 500 movies and then writing about each and every one of them? Seems pointless and time consuming. Well, it probably is.
I’ve always loved movies, I get it from my dad, and he got it from his mum (horror is a particular favourite). I appreciate everything about them, even when they are completely ridiculous. I’d make a terrible critic. So, as of next week, my dad and I will have officially started the longest mission of my life… 500 movies in 82 weeks.
Wish us luck!
