The Nerdification of a Sibling

3333

Bored today, as usual, decided to take upon an immense task to nerdify my sister even more. She is hardly the worst example of her age group considering taste in film, and she is certainly open minded. For whatever reason though, she has agreed to let me show her one new film a week for at least 20 weeks. Considering she is even less dedicated than I am, I have a feeling this probably won’t pan out, but we’ll see.

For each week I gave her two choices, the stars indicate her first choice, but they’re not guaranteed to be available so I might have to go with the second in that case. I’ll try to update on her thoughts after our viewings.

For reference, these are seven of her favourite films as of now, not in order;

Pan’s Labyrinth (Guillermo del Toro, 2006)
The Jungle Book (Wolfgang Reitherman, 1967)
Garden State (Zach Braff, 2004)
