Jolie Oldman

We’ve done a James Bond viewing (one movie a fortnight, for a year. It was quite a thing.)

We’ve done Great Scott! – watching Tony and Ridley Scott films. (Turns out, epics are not really for us.)

We realised we hadn’t had a viewing project for a while, and decided this was a good time to start one. We’d been thinking of following an actor, and decided Gary Oldman would be awesome – we both love several of his films. And then I pointed that we’ve focussed entirely on dudes. So we thought about what not-dudes would be interesting, and we decided Angelina Jolie fit the bill.

Thus: Jolie Oldman.

I have to admit, though, it doesn’t feel like a time for much experimentation. So we’re largely watching films we’ve seen before. We’ll watch them in chronological order, and it will be interesting to see the development and changes over time. But it won’t be a whole lot of new stuff. And we’re fine with that.
