This is it, this is really happening then. I mentioned late last year that I was going to kick off a film club on the blog (and blogged about it here: Announcing the Film Club) in the hope I could see “must see” films that I haven’t seen but the rest of world have, or revisiting films that I adore and think others might not have seen such as Abigail’s Party. Or maybe we could have a big love in and all watch something like Grease for umpteenth time and see if we can all watch at the same time and tweet along.
To be honest I haven’t really thought beyond that so far.
And that means I didn’t even get organised enough to buy the film that I promised a friend would be the first one (A western that I have now forgotten and need to search through my favourites on Twitter and find).
American Beauty is a film that is on our pile of DVDs at home but is one I haven’t seen, well not all the way through. It received rave reviews when it was released in 1999. It won five Oscars.
But does that make it any good?
I am going to watch it this week and will report back next Saturday when I announce the next film.
Watch American Beauty with me this week, write about it, and link up. Or leave me a comment below if you watched it and either loved it or hated it.
If you do blog about it I have made a little badge on the right over there if you fancy using it, you don’t have to.
Leave me suggestions of films for the future too, I am now making a list.
