Time for my seventh status report for the Movie Madness Challenge.
Here is my code for the films:
New to me - N
Repeat viewing - R
I'll also be including how I viewed the films:
VHS (yes, we have a lot of those, and a VCR)
This is a 2001 Australian film starring Hugo Weaving and David Wenham.
This is a Soviet-era cult film which Mosfilm has made available on You Tube. Remarkably funny in a very understated way.
Russian cosmonauts watch this film before every lift-off, and many lines from the movie are part of Russian popular culture.
Total movies for July - 7
Total movies for 2012 - 50
Movie Fanatic status secured.
Took some doing, though. I'm definitely glad I took up this challenge, because without it I would not be making the time in my schedule to watch movies.
For a film-oriented person like me, watching movies unlocks my muse. You could say that I owe it to my writing to get myself in front of a screen and watch, darn it.
I'm a month behind in my quest to hit Movie Master status by the time we're ringing in the new year. I'll have to take a cue from the Olympic athletes currently inspiring me at the 2012 London games--and put some effort into it.
