So here’s the lowdown: If you’ve been keeping up with my antics, you know I’ve set myself up for this kinda insane, kinda brilliant film challenge – to watch a new movie every single day for a year. Yes, every. Single. Day. And because I love you guys and I love sharing my unfiltered thoughts, I’ve been religiously dropping a blog post for each flick I’ve encountered on this cinematic odyssey.
Case in point: I just wrapped up watching “Frida,” and yes, it was a soul-stirring, artistic rollercoaster that had me at the edge of my seat (more on that in a sec). But real talk: keeping up with this self-imposed ritual to jot down my every cinematic adventure? Phew, it’s a marathon.
Every movie has its own universe, its own rhythm, and trying to capture that essence in a blog post, while still keeping the sparkle of my own voice? It’s a lot, friends. It’s like each review is a mini love letter to the art of film, and I want to make sure I’m doing justice to each one. And let’s not forget, I’m aiming for 365 of these bad boys. That’s a whole lot of love letters, peeps.
I gotta admit, I’m on the fence about continuing to write a post for every single film. I mean, I’m all for a good challenge, but this is like signing up for a marathon with sprints in between. It’s wild. Writing 365 movie reviews in a row is a herculean task that even Hercules might think twice about.
But…here’s the thing – “Frida” has kind of reignited that spark in me. It reminded me why I started this whole shebang. It’s about more than just ticking boxes; it’s about immersing myself in stories, in lives lived, in art created. It’s about what makes us feel alive, and if Frida Kahlo taught us anything, it’s that life, with all its chaos and creativity, is worth documenting.
So, will I continue the daily blog post grind? I’m chewing on it. But for now, let’s dive into the kaleidoscopic world of “Frida” and why this movie, above so many others, was a technicolor reminder of why I fell in love with film in the first place.
Stay tuned for my next post – it could be a review, a rant, a rave, or just a random musing. But whatever it is, I promise it’ll be straight from the heart – just like Frida would’ve wanted.
Catch ya on the flip side,
