This has gotten really out of hand. I mean, it’s just gotten silly, right? I’ve not posted a weekly update for months, and still have movies from February that haven’t been covered, and I can’t take it any more.

There are many things that keep me up at night, tossing and turning into the nether hours. Normally it’s that I’m wasting time sleeping when there are so many other things I should be doing (I’m one of those people with a neverending To-Do List, the first 10 or so items on which are generally Write Posts), or that I’m wasting my life watching films instead of actually living. Sometimes it’s my neighbours two-year-old (their second child is due in two days) or that niggling feeling at the back of my mind that I’ve forgotten something I’ve supposed to have done (more often that not: set an alarm). But now and then, I can’t sleep because I’m stuck thinking why, just why, do so many people rave about a film that I just can’t get my head around. This list is predominantly comprised of such movies, that the majority of movie nerds seem to love, yet for some reason or another just don’t do it for me. Don’t get me wrong, none of these are bad films, I’ve just never lifted them up to the levels of greatness so many others have.
