"How many movies do you see a day?"

In hopes of answering that perennial question (and as a way to make myself blog more regularly - ahem), I'm going to start posting the title of every movie I watch on a daily basis from now until the end of the year. I wish I had thought of doing this on Jan. 1, but I didn't.

The list will include movies I watch for work and for pleasure, in theaters and at home. I won't be reviewing the movies here, but I will try to jot down a quick thought or two with each entry. An asterisk (*) before the title indicates a repeat viewing of a film.

Saturday Jan. 20

* Unforgiven (1992): My second favorite western, after Once Upon a Time in the West. The last 10 minutes, depicting William Munny's vengeful ride back to Big Whiskey, remain the most perfect filmmaking in Eastwood's career.

Sunday Jan. 21

* The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986): Pretty awful - it is obvious the screenplay was being written on the set as they went along - but strangely, compellingly watchable, especially the long sequence set inside the radio station, which strikes just the right mix of humor and horror Tobe Hooper was aiming for.

About time sir.

Juan B.

When we list the movies we watch, should we or should we not include porn?

Ashly

You are right, what was I thinking.
