Recently I challenged my self to become a better person. The best thing I could think of doing was to quit smoking.
Unfortunately I was a non-smoker, but after a trip to the 7-11 I had a pack of Kents and I was ready to start, then stop smoking. And in doing so I would begin (and then no longer) pollute the air with second hand smoke.
Well, a few months later and several thousands dollars worth of "stop smoking" lessons and I had quit smoking.
Anyway, I also watched 100 movies in 100 around the same time. Not sure why I mentioned the other story, except that I felt like mentioning an obscure brand of smokes.
Which Kent probably is.... unless that is your brand, then I mean Merit.
I decided to watch the 100 movies because I felt my movie watching had fallen into a rut. I would routinely watch movies that I had seen just a few years earlier and other times I would spend time talking to my family.
That was no fun, because they usually just chided me about my smoking habit. L&M cigarettes. Obscure? Maybe. Tasty, sure.
So my goal was simple. I would watch 100 of the films that I had NEVER seen. This way I could watch some of the DVDs that I had stacked up in my house, and I could check out some of the fine programming HBO offers.
I saw some great films.
The two best were Spartacus and The Rocketeer. That's two different movies. Although a film called Spartacus and The Rocketeer would have been AWESOME. Like a pack of Benson & Hedges.
I saw two films that were absolutely horrible. L.A. Heat and Transmorphers. That's also two different movies... although L.A. Heat and Transmorphers doesn't actually sound like a movie title.
I also saw some flat out strange movies. I saw an odd animated film about a horse playing baseball, I saw a film where Dolly Parton was an angel, I saw a film where a guy ate a lizard and I saw 4 different Three Stooges movies.
100 days ago I had never seen the Fletch movies, today I have. 100 days ago I had never seen a dog with a mustache... still waiting on that one actually.
I saw an abundance of movies about monkeys in outer space. I saw and abundance of movies about snakes and I SAW A GUY EAT A LIZARD.
I didn't get to the movies during the 100 days as I would have liked, but I did see The Dark Knight, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Space Chimps, Eagle Eye, Fly Me To The Moon, An American Carol and I SAW A GUY EAT A LIZARD. A REAL LIZARD. NOT SOME SPECIAL EFFECT LIZARD.
I went around the world through the movie screen during these 100 days. I saw The African Queen, Harlem Nights, The Great Los Angeles Earthquake and Soccer Dog 2: European Cup. I also wondered why they didn't call it European Pup. Maybe they did and I wrote it down wrong.
I saw so many movies during that 100 days. If you gave me a quarter for every movie I saw I would have 100 quarters... and why don't you give me 100 quarters? Man, that would let me accomplish my other dream of playing 100 games of Primal Rage.
