My 15 Movie Resolutions for 2015

Happy New Year! It’s only been a few days, but 2015 is shaping up to be an AWESOME year already. As usual, the new year marks a time of reflection and resolutions. This year, I have decided to focus my New Year Resolutions on the movies I watch.  In addition to watching more films, this year I want to expand my personal knowledge of film and  challenge myself to watch films that I usually would not, in genres that I tend to shy away from, and by a more diverse group of filmmakers.  So here are my 15 Movie Resolutions for 2015:

1. Watch 365 New (to me) Films in 365 Days (#TeamNFOTD)


2. Watch at least one documentary a week

3. Watch one throwback film a week (made before 1980)

4. Watch two foreign-language films a month

5. Watch at LEAST one film I vowed NEVER to watch

6. Watch one movie I’ve lied about watching (there are a few…LOL)

7. Watch twelve Academy Award Best Picture winners


8. Watch twelve Best Actor/Actress winning performances

9. Read one screenplay a month

10. Watch one horror film a month

11. Watch one science fiction/fantasy film a month

12. Watch a film trilogy


13. Watch twelve films my first time directors

14. Watch 52 films by a female directors

15. Watch 24 short films
