Sometimes it feels like I collect for the sake of collecting.  My treasure troves of music, movies, and books is staggering in its obsessiveness, but the irony is that I haven't read half the books I've got on my shelves or likely listened to even 10% of the songs in my music library.  To say nothing of the hundreds of hours I could spend viewing movies I own but have never actually watched.

So here's my goal to myself.  One new movie per week.  One new album per week.  And thirty minutes per night of curling up with a good book.

Movies, not an issue.  All the ladies in my family crash for a solid Sunday afternoon nap of at least two hours every week.  Should I not be able to finish that movie before they all awake, I can finish it off before bed that night.  Music, not an issue.  The time I spend in a car driving to and from work each day should easily let me knock out an album in a single day.  And I figure thirty minutes with a book to wind down before going to bed at night will be ideal.

Reviews to come.

Let's hear some possible next movies or albums. I'll see if I can make any recommendations.

Movies will be those already in my collection but not having been seen. Just craning my neck around to look at the shelves, I see all four Aliens movies, Kiss Of The Spider Woman, United 93, Murphy's Romance, Hannah and Her Sisters, Dial M For Murder, North By Northwest, all of the Harry Potter series, Man On Wire, Shallow Grave (one of your favs, if I recall correctly), The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Bridge On The River Kwai, Defiance, and Bowling For Columbine (among many others).

Of that list, I can endorse N by NW, Man on Wire, Bridge on the River Kwai, Shallow Grave, and with reservations Bowling for Columbine.

The Harry Potter series got better after the first couple. They were very simplistic and innocent initially but got more solid after those two.
