We’re going to be really brave right now, and admit that Monica has never actually seen All the Presidents Men. And that Brad has never seen Lawrence of Arabia. And that neither of us has actually watched The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. We were lamenting our collective ignorance and wondering why all of the films moldering on our Netflix queue since 2009 have never been touched while we have to continue to make our way through the entire catalog of Dora the Explorer.
So, we’re embarking on a project with rules.
1. One film a week.
2. Either one or both of us needs to have not already seen it.
3. Films must have been made before we were born (1980).
So hopefully, this time next year when someone asks Monica if she’s seen Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid she doesn’t need to evade with a “not recently” and can just say “yeah.”
Comment or email us at cinematicidiotinfo at gmail for suggestions. We’re also keeping a running spreadsheet with possible contenders if you want to weigh in on what we should watch next. Looking forward to sharing some new experiences through the blog.
