I sit on this couch from Ikea, with this precious cat sleeping nearby, watching “Hardball With Chris Matthews.” I’ve just applied for a data entry position at the Directors Guild of America, and now I’m not sure what to do.
So, my idle mind wanders, and my eyes fix upon this beautiful antique cabinet that sits on the edge of the room. This cabinet, I should say, has some interesting history. It once was the top-half of a medicine cabinet in a psychiatric hospital, and was found in a ditch on the side of the road many decades ago. It was kindly passed down from one generation to the next, and now holds the entirety of my movie collection. Although, when I say “my,” I really mean “we” (as in, my wife and I). Our collection. In total, we have exactly 201 movies between us. Some gifts, some box sets, some hers, some mine, some I haven’t even seen.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to watch EVERY single movie in the collection in alphabetical order (all 201 of them), which will then be followed by a corresponding review. Well, not a review, per se, more of a “casual commentary.”
At any rate, the first order of task: do inventory.
