The DailyView: 2021 EYG Spring/Summer Unseen Classic Binge

I have decided to undertake a special binge for the coming spring/summer season here at EYG. Beginning on April 29th and throughout summer vacation, I will be watching a movie every day and writing a review for the Doc’s Classic Movies Reviewed section of the site. Each of these films will be movies that I have never actually seen before.

I have been working on a list, but I believe that I need to add more. If my count is correct, I will need in excess of 100 movies to complete the task.

Qualifications for the film:

  • The movie is one that I have not seen all the way through before. I may have seen scenes or parts of the movie, but I have not seen it from beginning to end.
  • It is a movie that has been released prior to 2021.

At first, the plan was to start the DailyView when my school ended for the 20-21 school year, but I was getting excited to get started so I took a personal day and planned on starting off the binge fest on April 29th. This will continue through all of May, June and July and then into August, until school restarts (and maybe for awhile after that).

As school concludes this year, the only day that may cause some issues will be Wednesday nights so I believe that I will need to be precise with my schedule.

This will not include any of the new releases that will come out during the time frame. I will still do those. There may also be some weekend binges that may be themed through the summer (for example, perhaps I would do a weekend July 4th Binge, including movies that I have seen before…such as Independence Day). If I do another binge along the way, I will make sure to include something that qualifies for the DailyView.

I hope to spread the genres out during DailyView. Comedies, Horror, Action/Adventure. Documentaries, Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Westerns, Animated, Biopics etc. Many of these are going to be considered classics that are holes in my viewing and some will be movies that may not be widely known.

There may be some days where I will exceed the one film a day. In fact, on April 29th, I am considering kicking off DailyView with a binge of several films.

I am excited to get started on this project. I will maintain the count of films on this post. Some will be great. Some may be rotten. Bring them on! Happy viewing!
