The 300 Week 20: THIS IS META!

Authored By Hubert Vigilla

Hey, you guys, welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my silly attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, and hidden gems to experience the wide world of cinema in all its forms. With so much being watched, there should be something each week that you can also enjoy. 

As always, there are three rules for The 300:

  • The movie must be at least 40 minutes long, meeting the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ definition of a feature film.
  • I must watch the movie at a movie theater, screening room, or outdoor screening venue.
  • While I can watch movies I’ve seen before 2018, I cannot count repeated viewings of the same film in 2018 multiple times.

A slightly slower week than usual because of friends coming in from out of town and some other obligations, but a pretty sound group of movies this week. And, somehow, MoviePass has not yet gone under. Still having occasional issues with ticket verification, which seems to be affecting a lot of other MoviePass users. Eventually this will get worked out. Maybe.

By the next installment of The 300, I will hit the midway point of this endeavor. A lot of this is thanks to the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival (The 300 Week 16 and The 300 Week 17), while the rest is all moxie. If MoviePass remains viable for the rest of the year, I might be hitting the goal way ahead of schedule. (I’ve just jinxed myself.) 

And so, onward.
