PLUG: 1001Plus

Nothing too terribly exciting, but I’d love to get some other opinions into the mix on this. As I have gotten further into reviewing the films on the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list, I discovered that five great science-fiction/horror films were released in the same month in 1982—Poltergeist, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Thing, and Blade Runner. All five were released between June 4 and June 25 of that year. I hold that this is the greatest month in American movie history, at least before stacking the deck in December became the way of things.

Anyway, the posts in question are here:

Like I say, I’d love to get other people with other ideas in on this discussion.

Thanks!

Got a Press Release, something to Plug, or a Screener available for review (or some combination of the three)? Ok, don’t get all crazy about it. Just click here and give me the details (what, when, where, and a link, for starters) – I’ll handle the rest.

  1. That’s too cool that you’re going through that list…that will take forever! I’m actually doing something sort of similar myself…I’m trying to watch all the films ever nominated/won for Best Picture this year…but your thing is way harder!

  2. Perhaps, only in terms of finding some of the films. I’m looking to take a total of four years–about 270 films/year for the total list. You’re doing far more films than I am.
