We are one day into summer now and I am embarking on a movie marathon that will take place over the next 92 days. It actually started yesterday, the first day of summer and will take place up until Tuesday, September 21st, 2010. Here is what I am setting out to do and why.

As I mentioned in my previous post I have been told time and time again to blog more and write online reviews of movies. For instance yesterday I wrote some short brief tidbits about some recent movies I have watched but nothing big or nothing like a detailed review. What I am planning to do is to watch one movie a day for every day of summer. Summer runs from June 21st - September 21st so that is 93 total days. Lets break it down some more. That is a total of 13 full weeks with 7 days in each week leaving 2 days at the very end.

Everyone who knows me knows that I am an avid horror fan but don't worry, I'm not watching 93 horror movies in 93 days. That could be detrimental to my health, haha. What some people may not know is that I love all types of movies. Comedies, Action, Suspense, 80's, Romantic Comedies, SciFi, and even Animated so what I have done is broken those 13 weeks into separate theme's and for that entire week I will be watching one movie a day that fits into that specific theme. Obviously since I enjoy horror movies more than others I do have 3 separate weeks dedicated to those but not all our the gory, blood splattering horrors that so many are used to seeing now and days. With all that being said below are my 13 themed weeks along with the movies I chose for that week and their run time (in minutes). I have not decided which movie I will watch on which days but will attempt to watch and sequel movies in succession because its just better that way. After each day I will write a detailed review of the movie I just saw along with some notes as to why I chose it as one of my movies for that week. Since there are 2 days left over for Sept 20th and 21st I decided to list 2 of my favorite movies of all time, The Dark Knight and Se7en.
