The Great Re-View Begins!

As has been said by many a person, I have an addiction to watching film. This problem of mine is starting to affect my bank account, as well as the ability to freely move about the house without having to clear a path through a valley of flat, rectangular plastic boxes (slight exageration).

Anyhow, I have decided this day that this problem must be acknowledged and so, from this exact point in time, I vow to not buy a single new DVD until I have watched every last one of the 213 DVDs that I currently own at least once. I have started this blog as a means to chronicle this great adventure through film, checking off each film from the list below as I progress.

Whilst re-viewing these films, I also aim to provide short reviews of each, giving you my thoughts on such things as the acting, script, soundtrack, cinematography, editing etc. of each film, as well as overall thoughts and memories regarding the film, and a score out of 10.

I hope you enjoy reading the insane ramblings of a film addict, and I heartily welcome your thoughts on these films and whether you agree or disagree my reviews. At the end of this epic debacle, I shall be creating a definitive Top 10 favourite films list, so please feel free to also provide your own lists of favourite/least favourite films as I'd really like this to be a jumping point for collective insane ramblings!

UPDATE: The background image of this blog will feature a probably-not-so-subtle clue for the film that I expect to be reviewing next.
