A lot of my film-fanatic friends are on a great site called Letterboxd, which allows you to catalogue all of the movies you’ve seen to date in order of when you’ve seen them. It’s like a daily calendar for movies. When you see as many movies as we do, it’s a valuable service.
In the past couple years, as I’ve been writing about movies more and more (over at Daily Grindhouse like crazy — not so much here, unfortunately), I also like to put up a gallery here on Demon’s Resume to chart everything I saw that year.
I took to doing this for a couple reasons: For one thing it’s fun to look at all the poster art, both the beautiful and the bad. For another, it seems like the right thing to do, since I as much as anyone can lapse into an authoritative tone at times and it’s only fair to reveal what I’ve seen and what I haven’t. I can’t rightly tell you what “the best movies of 2014″ are if I haven’t seen every movie released in 2014, right? I can only tell you which movies I appreciated the most, out of the ones I did get to see.
Since the year’s not over yet, I will be updating this post periodically, all the way through December 31st, so if you want, you can keep tracking what movies I’ve been watching. I’ll also try to link to my reviews (where I’ve done them) as I go along.
Let’s get going!
Dang. Busy year.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go celebrate this heroic accomplishment by watching some movies.
