New Film Series: #52Pick-Up

After the success of my #DLMChallenge where I watched #365Movies in #365Days, I’ve come to realize that while I’m proud to have seen 368 films [some amazing, some atrocious], it took way too much time; especially the #DLMChallenge individual blog entries (Yeah, no, I didn’t finish those…).

So now for 2016, I’m going to write a new, more succinct series. This series is called #52Pick-Up. In this series, I’ll watch one movie a week. This movie will be one that I have already seen, and one that has shaped my love of movies.

This will also mean that these films may not all be gems, in fact, most will be sci-fi films of all caliber.


After re-watching these childhood favorites, I will recap the movie’s plot, rate it, then ask a series of questions such as:

Where/when did I first see it?

How did it hold up over the years?

What did I like about them and why?

And finally, Lessons Learned? Examples: What did I learn regarding the filmmaking production, Hollywood, or myself from this film?


For a tease of my first film in this series…. Stay Tuned.
