Countdown to 5K! – Introduction! (Pseudo-Movies From the Hat 8)


Well, It’s that time again.

I am inching quite close to my next movie review milestone (5000), 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, so I decided to go with what already worked in the past with a twist.

The last few times that I did something big for milestones (1000, 1500 2000, 2500, 3000, 3500 and 4000), 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 decided to try and do it slightly different and in some ways give it more a cinematic global impact.

I chose a movie a year from the past 75 years which I have never seen and they will be my film reviews #4926 thru #5000 and what resulted will be revealed in the coming days and weeks.

Most of these films are ones that I’ve wanted to see over the years bit never got around to it and now I’ll finally get to see what they are all about.

I envision that I have made choices that will be of films that have a high potential of me enjoying, but until I’ve seen them, I have no clue what I will think of them.

Now I have 75 movie choices to watch and review with the hopes of posting my final review for this series on the day of the Oscars on the 24th of February.

Later today, I will start posting my reviews as I count down to review #5000

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

In addition, I have given a rating to each of the films before watching them based solely on how much I think I’ll enjoy each film.

I’ll revisit this list when I finish reviewing them all and we’ll see how close (or far off) my prediction were.
