OBJECTIVE: Watch Avatar once per every week of 2014.

WHEN: September 12, 2014, 5:50 pm. (Week 37, September 7-13.)

WHERE: In my apartment in Portland, ME.

FORMAT: DVD on a 19” AOC LED computer monitor; digital download on an iPhone 3.


PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STATE: Feeling lousy and tired.

I don’t feel like analyzing Avatar this week. After all, film critique isn’t required as part of the Cinema 52 experiment. It’s just something that we discovered early on could help make the repetitious viewings bearable. But it hasn’t been working for me for a while now. Thinking about Avatar just makes Avatar seem to last longer. So, this week I attempted to make myself a list of chores to accomplish during my viewing as an alternate way to make the time go by. My list was as follows:

Eat Dinner
Do Dishes
Start Laundry
Pack Gym Bag
Clean Up Clutter in Room
Sweep Room

So, did it work? Was Avatar more bearable? Nope. I only got about halfway through the list because I got tired and started staring blankly at the screen. Woo. Avatar just isn’t healthy for me right now.



See you next week.
