1001 Movies

Back in June for my birthday I was given this book, I put it on my wish list and I was lucky enough to get it. I love films so much. I did film studies for A Level at school and it really was a toss up between studying a film based topic at university or a fashion based topic. I love how films can take you to a completely different place or make you feel an emotion. There really is nothing better than cuddling up on the sofa with a good film on. I love so many different types of film, from romcom to horror, cheesy to documentary, I am always up for watching a good movie. Film is also influenced by and influences the era in which it is made so I love watching old movies because they’re so completely different to the movies being made now. Basically, I love movies!
I have been through this book, ticked off what I’ve already seen, and put marks by the ones I would like to see first and foremost. Granted there are a lot of films in here that may be hard to get hold of or understand because there are many foreign films, and really old films that I don’t know where you would get, but there are so many I want to watch. Some of them are so common and run of the mill that I can’t believe I haven’t seen them already like Star Wars and Back to the Future! I am ashamed of myself when it comes to these two.
So to get to the main point of this post, this year I am going to try my hardest to watch at least one movie from this book each week, and post a review on my blog with what I thought of it. Sort of like the film of the week posts I have written a couple of in the past, but these will be more about the actual film, and I will make sure I do it each week.
This plan starts this week! Heres to watching some great movies!

You can find the latest version of the book here on amazon 🙂
