Should I Include These?

The Ritz Theaters is running a special Saturday evening summer promotion starting May 2. These are single showings only, not the regular weekly run. They’re also only playing at midnight, when nothing else in the theater is likely to be showing. They’re classic movies instead of new releases. The schedule for these shows is:

Saturday, May 2, BACK TO THE FUTURE
Saturday, May 9, THE SHINING
Saturday, May 16, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN
Saturday, May 23, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
Saturday, May 30, REAR WINDOW
Saturday, June 6, GHOSTBUSTERS
Saturday, June 13, THE BIG LEBOWSKI
Saturday, June 20, SPIRITED AWAY

I’ve seen all but The City of Lost Children and The Big Legowski. I’m leaning toward not counting them. The challenge I established for myself was to see the movies released in the year, not special one-time only events. Since one of the goals of this project is to write a review for each movie I see, this list of eight films will eventually add two new movies to see and eight new reviews. That doesn’t add much value, in my opinion.
