Welcome to the Rewatch Zone

This project was initially conceived as a New Years Resolution which was, in short, “Instead of rewatching Gilmore Girls for the 6,000th time, maybe do some writing in 2016.” I decided to haul out my DVD binders (which have been collecting dust over the last few years thanks to Netflix) and watch every single movie I own, in alphabetical order. And then write something about each one.

Then I counted how many movies I have and realized that there’s very nearly one for every day of the year. So apparently this is not so much a 2016 project as a potentially eternal project, but hey, if I’m going to Sisyphus myself it may as well involve watching movies!

My DVD collection is a bit… idiosyncratic. It started with a handful of rom-coms when I was a teenager, blossomed into a collection of hip/foreign/indie/cult/prestige movies during my pretentious college years, took a detour through grossout comedy land in my early 20s and now, basically whatever 5-10 movies I manage to actually see in a year and like enough to buy.
