In 2010 I saw 100 different movies in 100 different theaters. Here are the details.

Strategy, Part 3

Just a quick note that I'm way behind on my reviews, both for those that count (i.e. that get a number), and those that don't, including some picture-heavy follow-ups to some great theaters.  The need to review my visits has been preventing me from frequenting the theater as often as I'd like, so I've made three radical concessions, all temporary (I hope).

1. I've skipped a few reviews, numbers 54-57, all from the same day while out with my best friend.  I'll return to these just as soon as I have a breather, but I want to once again feel like I'm caught up, and therefore free to see more movies.

2. I haven't written any Top Ten Tuesdays for a while now, as they are time-consuming to put together, and tend to stay pinned to the top of the page, obscuring the theater reviews.

3. I'm no longer controlling the dates of the review.  Previously, I retroactively published each review to match the date and time that I saw the movie.  The result was that reviews mysteriously appeared in the archives, without ever having debuted on the front page.  This was especially problematic because of Top Ten Tuesday, which I usually managed to publish on time, even when all the movies I had seen before that Tuesday were still in my hopper.  I might later effect a policy by which I reorder the publish dates once they are a month or so in the past, but for now, I'll just let it be.  If you really want to know when I actually saw the movie, you can look at the ticket stub.


  1. Okay, I understand wanting to catch up and take a breather. I keep myself up to date on my blog by the brilliant strategy of . . . not having one.

    But I will still pine away for when those reviews are published since it will be the first time I can comment on a movie in real time (namely, within a month of your post) and not six months later, when a movie somewhat family friendly hits the dollar theater for my Sunday outings with the girls.
