Inspired by Dave Hicks over at the tremendous Goodfella's Movie Blog, starting on February 4th I decided to post on my favorite film from each year from 1926-2008. It's been the most satisfying blogging I've ever done, and I particularly wanted to thank three people who stopped in almost every single day to dialogue with me: Dave Hicks, Sam Juliano, and John Greco. I can't thank everyone enough who took the time to participate in the countdown. It's definitely been the highlight of the last several months for me.
One of the most exciting things about the countdown to me is that it's identified many more films I still want to see. The list is now a permanent fixture on this blog. And it's my hope that it will continue to be a source of interaction for you and me. I will continue filling in the gaps, and each time I see a new film, I will add a short post on it, in red, to its respective year. I encourage you, as you continue to discover new things, to come back to their respective years and add these films to the conversation, as well.
To this end, I have added a new column on the right side of my blog, entitled "Recently Watched". Each time I see something new, I will add it here, along with the short post under its respective year. I will also continue posting here about my upcoming film, Peril, as well as about any other major moviegoing experiences I have.
Thank you all for being such great friends of this blog. You are among the most inspiring cinephiles I have ever met, and I look forward to continuing to follow all your incredible contributions.
