I am a dillettante. Now with that out of the way, I am a film geek through and through, and I have lots I'd like to share. I am also an avid knitter (though I still have a ton to learn) and I love to read, so I started this blog to give my two cents (hence my name) on any given subject, though movies will be my primary focus.

So, what to expect? My Bucket List Movies will be a big focus. "Bucket List Movies?" you ask (you probably didn't, but, tough noogies, I'm going to tell you anyway). In late 2012, while browsing the 2005 edition of The 1,001 Movies You Must See Before You Die in the library, I decided to check off (on a separate piece of paper, for I’m a good patron and respectful of books) what I’d already seen. I am embarrassed to say I don’t remember the exact number, but while I had seen a more than respectable amount, it was hardly enough to make a dent. In fact, it was rather mortifying how many classic films I hadn’t seen. That’s when I decided to copy the list and tackle as many of the 1,001 movies from the above mentioned edition as I possibly could. Yes, I’m aware the book is often updated, but I will stick to the edition I checked out because, one, I’m a lazy pig, and two, most of the major releases since 2005 have been a mixed bag of good but not great or plain overrated.

I sometimes toyed with the idea of blogging about this, and when I finally decided to give it a shot, I discovered that there is another blog covering a project like this and it is easily superior. So my Bucket List Movies will be more of a big part, but not the only part. When I posted my first hub, February 28, 2014, I had seen a grand total of 429 of the movies on the 2005 edition of The 1,001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. The 429th film in question was Queen Christina, my first hub. I just watch a new film from the list, review it, go from there.

For 2015: More "Worth Another Look" and "Public Domain Theatre", as well as a new segment, "Pre-Code Corner", in which I review films that were made and released before the Hays Code was enforced in 1934.

Thanks for checking out my posts, and if I wasted your time, I hope it was at least enjoyable!
