Id be more inclined if it was stepping up with Top 100 Club taking a pause.

I miss...
Whenever I watched a movie, I would always post some thoughts here. For me, it was a great benefit to be able to look a title up and remind myself of that initial reaction, which would often recall the entire experience. It's becoming common now that I will check that I watched a movie and I will have a rating for it on Letterboxd, but only a vague recollection of the experience.

However...
I am also not compulsively watching movies anymore, and I see that as a good thing. I have seen 27 movies in the past 30 days, which is still a lot but way down for me. Turns out there is more to do in life.

Im down to about one film per week at this point and just rate on Letterboxd. Trying to do less screen time and more reading to kind of slow time.

This is definitely me. I know that I will forget most of the movies I've seen lately, because I'm not going through that process of writing down my thoughts (and also depriving myself of anything but a numeric score to jog my memory). But also... I have the realization that it doesn't matter. Nothing in my life is dependent on remembering what I thought of a particular movie. And if it's something I really loved, I'd buy it so I could easily watch it again.

I've been on a bit of a movie-watching spree lately, nowhere near what I was watching at my peak but quite a bit more active than I have been in recent years. I discovered an old watchlist of titles that weren't available to me at the time, and found that a bunch of them are now available. Lots of Anthony Asquith and Nobuhiko Obayashi.
