Just a note

As I said, I'm very busy at the moment, but I'll most definitely go on with 1979 on Tuesday at least. But I'm announcing a second project I'll do simultaneously. As you see, Fritz is updating his reviews and I decided to do the same, but not with all the years and performances. I might change a few places in the rankings (I'll give a note whenever that happens) and I'm going to rewatch and change some reviews as well, particularly in years that I did at the beginning. The reason is simple: this whole thing started off as an experiment and I feel I learned so many things since that I simply get a bit embarassed if I see my old rankings and reviews. This might cost my previous winners their respective #1 places and some might improve a lot. :)

The years to be reevaluated: 1940, 1948, 1973, 1974, 1998, 2009

Welcome to the club :-)

You put it perfectly: it feels a bit embarrasing to go back to years you did first. When I browse through my blog, there are years that I avoid like the plague because I know how horrible my reviews were...and I just think that having a better overview over all the performances makes it easier to rank them. I just realized over the years that I cannot judge a performance truly if I only saw it one time. I just need a second viewing to be able to focus more on the performance, I am really looking forward to your new thoughts! I hope I'll be able to update another year soon but re-writing is those reviews is really exhausting...

I tried to put it more delicately, but I find my own first reviews horrible as well. :D
