One of the first things I considered when setting the challenge was whether I would enjoy watching older movies. For example; I really enjoyed Avatar, but is it possible to take the same sense of satisfaction in this day and age when watching some of the 1920's films on the list?
|Will King Kong (2005) be|
as iconic as the original?
Another aspect I am looking forward to is moving radically from one genre to another. Once I reach 'C', I will be watching the song-filled Carousel followed by the gore-filled Carrie. Even before that - in 'B' - the based-on-real-events crime movie Badlands will be followed by a film I saw when I was barely out of nappies - Bambi.
Finally, I have noticed one issue with watching the list alphabetically - sequels. With the majority of sequels, they logically follow each other (Toy Story 1, 2 & 3), but in my travels through the list I have noticed that The Trilogy of the Dead franchise will be a mismatch - Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead will be in order, but the film that starts the franchise - Night of the Living Dead - will be over 100 films behind. Can anyone suggest if this will be a problem?
