For those unaware, three years ago I started an annual tradition called March of the Movies, where I watch a film every day for the month of March and write reviews for them on the blog for people to peruse. The premise will be the same as it was last year: I watch a film at any part of a particular day and will release some sort of review, whether fully detailed or comically short, in that same specific day. I promise to kick myself into writing them far before 11:59 P.M.
As per my schedule with work and otherwise, one should expect my weekdays to be filled with longer, detailed reviews fairly early in the day, while weekends may see shorter reviews much later on.
In the years since I’ve started this block, I’ve grown as a blog to extend to topics outside of what my blog is typically known for (anime/manga). As such, my film choices likely won’t pertain to said one identifier, though I do plan to watch some anime-based films during the month.
This year, I do have a special plan for the month, which pertains to a joke that I discovered through research. Last week, I stumbled upon my old Rotten Tomatoes account, where I would rate and review films I viewed while I was still in high school (between 2009 and 2011). For my pride and your sanity, I will not link it, as some of my tastes at that time were… questionable. I’ve decided that every other day (even-numbered days), I will re-watch a film from that timeframe that made present me go, “I rated it what?!?!” Most will likely be bad films, but perhaps the old me had some refined preferences that I fail to see in my blinded, old state.
As always, I hope to see you there, and have a great day. For those interested, I also have an archive for past and present films included in this event.
