Thoughts about the First Week

Posted by schnolis on January 6th, 2009 filed in Observations

I’m planning my first week of movie watching.  This is probably the most exciting time of the whole process for a few reasons.  First, this is Oscar season.  Many of the movies out right now are Academy Award hopefuls, and I think that’s reflected in the quality. Second, I have only seen three of the ten movies currently showing in the theater now, and that leaves a lot of really good options open for new films. Third, and last, I have gotten approval (however reluctant) from my wife Linda to attempt this year of movies. 

I have mapped out my first day at the movies.  It will be Wednesday (tomorrow) and I’m planning to see the following shows:

  1. Gran Torino at 5:20pm
  2. Frost/Nixon at 7:20pm
  3. Slumdog Millionaire at 10:00pm

There’s even an outside chance I’ll get to take in another film on Thursday evening, and if that happens it’ll be Doubt.  I’m fairly confident I can do all of these based on the timing and the schedule at home.  On Thursday I can even get the kids to sleep before I have to head out, with a late showing. 

I find all of this terribly exciting, and I’m looking forward to it.  Hopefully I can keep everything going this year and reach my goal.
