A few weeks ago, I suggested we watch something together to pass the long summer months where the good new television is minimal. I put up a few suggestions and watching Alfred Hitchcock films and making your own schedule of award winning films battled it out. In the end, watching Hitchcock films won out by a narrow margin.
So let's call it...Summer of Hitchcock!
Here's how it will work. I'm going to put up a schedule of the films we'll watch. I know this will be tricky. We'll be battling it out at Netflix and Blockbuster to get the films on time. But hopefully, everyone will be able to get them. Then each Monday I will put up a post discussing the film and add a Mister Linky. You can put your "review" or thoughts about the movie up on your own blog or just come discuss in comments!
I've also put two Twitter nights on the calendar...these will be nights where we'll watch together (if you want) and chat about the film on Twitter.
The films chosen are based on what people said are their favorites, so whether you're rewatching or watching for the first time I hope you enjoy and have fun.
Oh one other thing...feel free to snag the button and promote..I think the more the merrier!
