Tomorrow I will begin blogging about these 24 movies. After receiving a ton of suggestions about what to watch, I settled on these movies over a month ago and have been steadily watching them since. (This really means that I started watching them all in the last two weeks.)
I don’t really have much of a plan of how I am going to go about writing about these movies. Other than I will post about one per day until my birthday on September 14.
Here is the rundown of when I will be posting on the movies and the related links.

How ironic. You’ll be watching The Lookout, the movie I recommended to you, on my birthday.
I totally planned that.
wow impressive graphic!
September 2nd. Hopefully you can make it through the film this time. Damn me and my lousy recommendations!
Ooh, I stayed awake successfully and ended up really, really liking it! It’ll be an entertaining post filled with self-mockery.
Ah! Glad to hear. Looking forward to your write up.
