Why howdy, partner, and welcome back to The 300, a rootin' tootin' feature on my wild attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, hidden gems, and festival films to experience the wide world of cinema in all its forms. With so much variety, I hope there’s something here for you to enjoy.
As always, there are three rules for The 300:
- The movie must be at least 40 minutes long, meeting the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ definition of a feature film.
- I must watch the movie at a movie theater, screening room, or outdoor screening venue.
- While I can watch movies I’ve seen before 2018, I cannot count repeated viewings of the same film in 2018 multiple times.
Another solid week of moviegoing, with two high-profile New York Film Festival movies, a major projection mistake, and the big Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga movie that I am a total humbug about. NYFF 56 is ending this weekend, so next week's installment of the series will feature the final reviews from the fest.
While NYFF draws to a close, my attention turns to the 2018 Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, which runs from October 11 to October 18. I will be catching a few films at BHFF 2018, and the first reviews will be up next week.
As of this writing, I have 34 movies left to go.
And so, onward.
