New Year's Resolution

One just came to me as I wondered what to do tonight and saw the tons of movies arrayed around me. It is in two parts:

(1) When I buy something meant to entertain me, I will allow it to do so promptly. Especially movies. When I buy a DVD/BD of a film/TV show/whatever that I haven't seen before, it goes into the player within a week.

(2) Go through all the stuff I've bought but not enjoyed over the past ten years or so and watch them. We'll start with the living room - DVDs I stuck on the coffee table because I was excited for them, festival screeners, Wholphins, Blu-rays and HD-DVDs (oh, gads, the HD-DVDs I bought because they were like $3) - before hitting the shelves out back.

It starts tonight with 5 Centimeters Per Second, which had me so stoked as a new Makoto Shinkai movie. We'll see how long the plan lasts once a week comes where new movies actually get released.
