See, I’m cinematically deficient. I want to change that.
You name it, I haven’t seen it. I’m used to the looks of disgust and the sad head shakes from my friends. The Star Wars saga? Nope. “Field of Dreams” or “Bull Durham”? Not a chance. “Dead Poets Society”? Forget about it. “E.T.”? Never.
It’s not that I was a sheltered child; I’ve seen plenty of movies in my life. I just never got around to a lot of the movies that have defined my generation. I’m even worse with contemporary movies. Between my thrifty nature and my laziness, I don’t get to theaters very often.
So I solemnly resolve to see more movies this year. After all, what self-improvement plan could be better than spending more time sitting still and staring at a screen?
