"THE LIST" AND MY
16 YEAR OLD PERSPECTIVE

HOW I "REELED" IN MY LOVE OF MOVIES AND TELEVISION 

DURING THE  2020-2021 COVID QUARANTINE

I've always loved watching classic movies and television shows with my dad, but it wasn't

until a global pandemic shut down regular life that I got serious about "the list." 

What is "the list" you ask? 

Well, "the list" is basically all of the  movies and television shows my father thought I needed to see to be a true lover of all things media.   It was a rather daunting list -  with over 60 movies and shows.  How did he ever have the time to watch all these I wondered?


I never thought I would ever make a significant dent in "the list", but now almost 18+ months into the COVID pandemic, I really made my way through this life-changing and perspective changing collection.  Who knew staying home would become so productive for a 16 year high school kid?


And now it's time to share my wealth of knowledge with YOU.  I have so much to say, I have so many thoughts.  Some of these movies and shows will define my ultimate life choices. 


And the best part...  that I've become the "go to" person for movie and show recommendations - to all my friends and even some of my parents friends! 


"A REEL PERSPECTIVE" was born out of this experience and need to share my point of view. 


Thanks for joining me on this journey.
