A while ago (indeed, almost a whole year ago), it was my birthday! And to add to all the real life goals and challenges that that brings, I’ve created at least one as it relates to movies and this blog–watch a film I’ve never seen before which came out in each year of the fifty years before I was born, and then write a bit about it. This is Post #43.
Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between. But lately I decided to spend both some of my 50th birthday spending money and my Christmas spending money on some of these adventures, and enjoy them with one or two of my nerdier daughters. Although in this case, I’ve had this one on DVD for a while, and recently enjoyed it again mostly by myself.
Doctor Who – All The Years is a quick examination of what was happening in the world of Doctor Who over all its years of existence. I’m not attempting to create a thorough history–just brief look back at the real-life timeline of my favorite TV show.
Continuing with this series of 47 moments in film that I love (Why 47?), today, for #30, we look at Citizen Kane. I know it’s sort of cinematic sacrilege to talk about War of the Worlds in one breath, and Citizen Kane in the next, but that’s what just the way we role here.
