Birthday Blitz Marathon: The Rundown

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 had a ridiculously fast Netflix turn around; I would rent and watch as many as five movies any given week. I had movie watching down to a science. Since then, my over eager teenage self who wanted to watch every movie ever made has died. Now I’ve just gotten lazy in my post-college days. I’ve had one Netflix rental out since April. Since I seem to be endlessly bored and incapable of watching any new-to-me movies unless they are in theaters, I need to challenge myself.

So here’s my idea.
