Picking and watching movies alphabetically

The question What do we watch? is a tough one to answer. We decided to break out of our self-established, comfortable, filter bubble and started watching movies alphabetically.

Moving out of the filter bubble has been a good experience:

We started on 15th February 2020 and made it through the alphabet by end of March 2020. That’s a pace of 267 = 3.714285714 movies per week.

Movies are a form of art. Let’s keep it alive and diverse by watching movies which aren’t edited to drive business metrics to new heights.
