2012 Challenges

Instead of setting some New Year’s resolutions for the blog or movie watching I have decided to set some 2012 challenges in regards to film watching!

  • Try to review each film I see at the cinema – now this wasn’t far off in 2011 but must do better!
  • Watch the films I have on DVD that I have never actually seen
  • Focus on old films with the year ending in 2 . . . 2002, 1992, 1982 etc
  • Form top 10 lists with regards to the above challenge
  • Catch up on films I missed in 2011
  • Make more use of my LOVEFiLM subscription
  • See more than 57 films at the cinema (2011’s total)

What about anyone else, any 2012 challenges?
