If you are anything like me, you might find yourself right in the middle of a "theme" when viewing movies. I'll get in a horror mood, and watch 4 or 5. Sometimes, I just want to sit back and watch some Verhoeven madness (cause 1 is never enough). Anyway, I found myself (although not through a conscious effort...at least not totally) in that same situation these last two days. I was right in the middle of an Edward Norton marathon. Thanks to the Norton thread discussing whether he has or has not lived up to his promise, I added some of his films to the old queue. And as luck would have it, they all came at once (well 2 of them). And I thought it might be nice to have somewhere to come and discuss these type situations. So if you want, join along. For the purposes of this thread, 2 movies shall be the minimum requirement for a "Marathon." Because let's face it, if you run into two crappy movies in a row, you might just get that taste washed out of your mouth rather quickly (it happens to me). All I ask is that your movies contain a similar theme. It could be actors, directors, genre, sequels, or anything that makes sense to you. In fact, the quirkier the connection, the more fun. And feel free to stop in and update us mid-marathon if you like. Especially if you take on a daunting challenge. I'm going to start with a Karate Kid marathon myself. And all just because that one damn song that plays in the awesome "fight montage" got stuck in my head about two weeks ago and will not leave (You're the best around...no one's ever gonna keep you down...You're the best.....if this now gets stuck in your head, my apologies....and hahahaha). I hope to get all 4 (yep...even the Macchio-less installment) between today and tomorrow. Other upcoming marathons I hope to undertake: -The entire Friday the 13th series this one may take me some time...while Jason has a special place in my heart....I can really only take him in small doses -Sam Raimi with Spiderman 3 coming out, and Darkman playing on demand, I feel the need There are others too, but these are just on the horizon. For what it's worth, I viewed The Illusionist (a good movie....but I almost feel the need to call it fluff), Fight Club (nothing I can say that hasn't already been said before), and Down in the Valley (the most interesting of the two "new discoveries" and well worth checking out). I'd add more, but the Kid is calling.
