Way Too Far Behind, On Everything
So it's a new year, and time for old resolutions. Drop a few pounds, write a lot of scripts.
Things are in play. I have a few scripts floating around out there getting read.
I'm work on an assignment pitch with a writing partner, and also brainstorming a return to my fantasy/comedy, so that with either one I can convince my writing group that I'm not the sick, twisted guy that my recent dark thriller efforts might lead on to believe.
Meanwhile, I'm far, far, far behind on movies. How far?
Entertainment Weekly just came out with it's list of the 25 movies from 2008 to see before the Oscars.
I've seen 3 -- The Visitor, The Dark Knight, and Milk. Maybe I get a half-point because I read the script for Gran Torino.
But there have been years in the past where that number would have been closer to 20.
What haven't I seen from that list?
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Rachel Getting Married
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
I Loved You So Long
Nothing But The Truth
Man On Wire
Synecdoche, New York
I know, I suck.
How many have you seen?
And what's the best 2008 movie you've seen?
