So many films

Overthinking

Overthinking

The modern era of streaming has given us so much choice, so many good films and television from all around the world. There isn’t a minute of the day when we can’t watch practically anything that we want, if it’s not on a streaming service it can be bought to watch digitally over the Internet.

Though this is brilliant for me there is a downside, too much choice, way too much choice. I’m crippled by analysis paralysis, skipping through all the services and not stopping on anything as the next choice may be better!

That’s one reason that I’ve started this blog, to give me a bit of a focus and to try and encourage me to make that choice.

One of the things I’ve done to help that is to make LISTS, I like lists, it also means I can use a random number generator to choose a film from the list and just go and watch that.

I’m also going to be running polls on Twitter and eventually on Patreon for people to vote on to help me decide as well, I always like getting recommends or even just people’s views on the four films I’ll put up for voting on.

Another app I’m going to use to try and relieve the pressure of choice is Reelgood which has a randomiser at the bottom of the main page throwing up a random choice based on the services you’ve entered.

Hopefully these methods should encourage me to watch more TV and film and will mean I have more to write about.
