30 Movies in 30 Days: 15 Things I Learned in the First 15 Days

  1. Early 2000s Dreamworks deserves a much stronger legacy than it has.
  2. Stop shying away from movies just because they’re over 2 hours long.
  3. The dudes who wrote Shrek also wrote Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl as well as The Road to El Dorado
  4. St. Elmo’s Fire is NOT a John Hughes movie.
  5. Sing Street is NOT on Netflix.
  6. Sing Street is also not available for purchase at my two most convenient Targets or my most convenient Best Buy.
  7. When you realize you want to buy a new movie, just go on Amazon and buy it.
  8. Sushi is a far more intricate cuisine than I ever could’ve imagined.
  9. AIDS is a far more devastating disease than I initially realized.
  10. Sometimes movies that are really fun to watch with friends aren’t as fun to watch alone.
  11. Adventures in Babysitting might just be the most brilliantly written plot-driven movie of all time.
  12. The kinds of movies you decide to watch in the moment will never even vaguely resemble the movies you would’ve picked for yourself in advance. (similar topic here).
  13. Apollo 13 doesn’t blow up until 50 minutes into the movie. WHAT?!?
  14. “Music” and “Musical” are considered two different genres according to IMDb.
  15. A “halfway through the challenge” post is a great excuse to hyperlink to a bunch of your other content in an attempt to drive traffic.
