Happy 2021, everyone! However you chose to welcome the new year, I hope you’ve managed to recover.
Today was the first day of the New Year and, for me, it was also a day to start a new list of films. It’s something I and a lot of people do every year. We keep a list of every film that we watch and, of course, the idea is to see as many possible. In 2020, I watched 820 films at least once. (Some films, like It’s A Wonderful Life, I watched several times but, for list purposes, I only counted the first time.) This year, I’m hoping to watch at least 1,000.
I watched Thank God It’s Friday as a part of #FridayNightFlix, which is a weekly live tweet that I host. Every Friday, at 10 pm et, we watch a movie. So far, we’ve watched Starcrash, Ator, Split Image, Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny, Robot Monster, and now Thank God It’s Friday. If you’re reading this and you’re on twitter, consider yourself invited to next Friday’s film.
As always, the work here at the TSL Bunker is never done.
Still, for the most part, the first day of 2021 was a rather mellow and peaceful one and, after 2020, I don’t think anyone can complain about that. One thing about almost everything being on hold right now is that it gives us a chance to reflect and think about both the past and the future. For instance, I spent a good deal of today staring at my film collection and realizing that I need to spend this entire year watching every piece of physical media that I own, if just to make sure that they all still work. So, you can consider that one of my resolutions for 2021. I will sit down and watch all of the movies that I own. And maybe I’ll even review them!
I wasn’t the only one making resolutions around here, of course. Patrick also set himself up for a challenge:
That was pretty much it for today. I watched some movies. I listened to some music. And I made some last-minute resolutions for the new year. It was a quiet day but it was a good day. I can’t complain about that. Instead, we can all sing along:
Have a good year everyone. Keep reading. Keep listening to music. And as always, keep watching, talking, debating, discussing, and making your opinions known! Let’s make 2021 a year to be remembered!
