101 Movies You Must See Before You Die

On the internet, I found a list of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It was a very long list. I went through it, but I hadn't seen that many movies before 1950, and it had several movies I suspect were fake.

So then I found the list 101 Movies You Must See Before You Die, and I've seen 93 of them. What does that prove? That I watch a lot of movies.

  1. wow, i've seen a bunch, but definitely not 93 of them. :) You should totally check out Amelie (french film); it's super fun! I think it's still on Netflix "watch instantly," if you have it...

  2. ok..so speaking of movies...I think it would be really fun if you would pretend that all off your books were going to be turned into movies...and you should give us the cast list for the main characters!!

    and amelie is great. check her out.

  3. I'm glad to see that my two favorite movies of all times: Cinema Paradiso (Italian) and Amelie (French) made the list. I've also noticed that you haven't watched either one of them. Since you are such a movie buff, you really should check those two movies out. They are brilliant.

  4. Also, they have to make room in this list for Fight Club. I know it's hard to narrow it down to only 101 but, it needs to be in there somewhere.

  5. I watch a lot of movies, but you definitely have me beat. I've probably seen only half of them. There were a few left off that I thought should have been on there.

  6. Where's Scream? Where's Beetlejuice? Where's Batman Forever? Where's Hairspray? This list is a joke!

  7. O.O You've read 93? I don't think I've even watched 20 of them! Actually, I just counted them and I've only watched 10!!! Anyway, I can't believe you haven't watched Amelie, I love that movie!

  8. That's crazy! I have only watched 15 on that list! One year I will watch one everyday. That's a good resolutions....hmmm.

    The Sting is amazing. My high school did that play last year too.

  9. I think it's awesome that even though I'm way older than you, we've enjoyed so many of the same movies.

    I'd also highly recommend an old classic, The Best Years of Our Lives, be added to the list.

  10. I am amazed that "A Fish Called Wanda" is on that list and American Beauty is not.

  11. I love movies too. And, I've seen almost all of these. But then, I'm a lot older than you. ;)

  12. I've probably seen a similar number off that list. I'd highly recommend seeing Jean de Florette (and the sequel Manon de Sources), Amelie and Cinema Paradiso. I'm amazed that there are so few older films on that list though.

  13. Wait - "The Birdcage" didn't make that list? No way. It's got to be one of the best films ever. (I've seen a bunch of them too!)
