That is not a catchy project title, even if it does what it says on the tin. As far as intriguing and engaging initials go, Project WMT isn’t particularly inspiring either, I really need to take a leaf out of the books of the creators of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. But for now, it will do (story of my life).
Let me explain where the desire for Project WMT (it’s terrible, don’t repeat it any more) comes from. I am the serial re-watcher, re-reader here, yet again, to complain about this fact and state my intentions to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I might have accidentally (not at all) clicked Renew on my subscription to Amazon Student which comes with Amazon Prime Video so… that happened. And now, between Netflix and Prime, I have access to quite a few TV shows that I’ve been meaning to watch. However, although I do love me a marathon, I have recently realised that I flop onto the metaphorical ground, wheezing and begging for water, and never get to the finish line. (Not kidding – I still haven’t finished Firefly for god’s sake!) So something needs to be done about that.
Something also needs to be done to kick my film re-watching habits. Now, that’s not to say I’m going to stop re-watching films because a world in which I am not allowed to obsessively re-watch Avengers Assemble, Thor, Shaun of the Dead, Leap Year, and The Proposal is, frankly, not a world I want to live in. What I mean to say is that I hope to add some recent (and absolutely no so recent) releases to that list and actually watch some of the unwatched DVDs that sit on my ever-groaning bookshelf. My plan is small but manageable I think – I shall watch 1 film a week, a new-to-me film, that I will then review, either soon afterwards, or I will jot down comments in order to include it in a monthly wrap-up which should have, obviously, 4 films to discuss. It should be good.
We’re already on the 8th so a week has passed of March and no film to speak of was watched. I think I will allow myself that deviation since, you know, I only just thought about actually putting this general desire to watch more films into some kind of action plan. I haven’t yet decided how the TV show portion of this will work because it has horrible potential to interfere with my academic life even more than it already does. I’ll get back to you on that one, along with a better project title. (Side note: if you have any ideas for creative names for this ‘project’ then please leave them below!)
