So the idea is simple: I choose seven films, hence the "LuckySeven" - fugly name I know but I couldn't think of any cinematic associations to the number seven - and they're films that fit a certain description. It could be anything from similarities in the title, films with certain actors or made by particular directors. It could belong to a particular sub-genre in film or contain a single theme or idea. Anything really. I choose the seven films based on their significance in cinema, people's recommendations and some of my own personal favourites.
I've made four "LuckySevens" so far and I've made posters to accompany them.
The first one is called: "Two is Company" and the rule here is the title has to have two names of characters in them, separated with "and". Simple.
The third one includes films that star Meryl Streep in them. It's called 'Meryl's Choice'. Get it? Meryl's choice? Like Sophie's Choice? Okay, never mind. Here's the poster with her beautiful face on it.
The fourth LuckySeven focuses on a particular idea: love destroyed or created by war. It's called 'Make Love, Not War'.
About 90% of the films here I've never seen before so I'm super excited to experience them. But for now, I'm going to go hunting for DVD copies of the films in sales bins. If you're interested in joining me with this project please e-mail me, or comment. You don't have to be a blogger to take part.
P.S. I designed the posters myself and they're copyrighted. I think (where do I do that?) And I don't know why the Streep poster is edging towards the left. I think I messed up the HTML :(
