Movies From The Hat III


200Well, It’s that time again.

I am inching quite close to my next movie review milestone (2000), so I started to contemplate how I could do justice for this big milestone.

I wanted to do something a bit different, but I also wanted to find a way to get all of you involved.

The last two times that I did something big for milestones (1000 and 1500), I chose to let you, my readers choose movies for me to watch and review.

I randomly chose each selected movie from a hat and watched them in the order that I picked them.

This method was chosen in homage to my favorite game on Whose Line is it Anyway? Scenes From the Hat.

This time around, I noticed something else, something quite unique; I would have the opportunity to watch movies during my countdown to 2000 that actually correspond to the numbered review.

This gave me the idea that after granting their consent, I would randomly portion to each reader a year to choose a movie for me to watch that I’d never seen.

My original plan was to have it culminate at 2000, but then it really dawned on me how unique an opportunity it would be for me stretch it out until 2016 (If I would get enough of a response.)

Thankfully, the response was so much better than I had hoped and I got (about) 35 different followers to express their interest which would carry me from 1980 to today.

It then hit me that it would be really cool to actually start during my birth year (1974) and work my way all the way to the present.

I found 6 fellow readers who agreed to choose yet another film and what resulted will be revealed in the coming days and weeks.

I have 42 movie choices to watch and review.  The vast majority are movies that I’ve never seen before, a handful I’ve seen in part or only one time and one or two are movies that I haven’t seen in years and decided to watch again based on the recommendations I received.

Later today, I will start posting my reviews from 1974 to the present.

I hope I enjoy the films chosen and moreover, I hope you all enjoy reading my reviews of them.

As always, none of this would be possible without the help and support of all of you fellow bloggers, so a HUGE thanks to all of you for your help, encouragement, suggestions, constructive criticism and above all, your presence on my site.

Let the reviews begin!!!
