  1. Geez, I've barely seen any of these! What was their scoring reasons?

    Although Shawshank Redemption is a fav in this house!

  2. I've only seen six of them! I am self diagnosed with ADD and can't watch a movie to save my life!

  3. Huh, off hand I've seen 43 of those and let me tell you, that's a strange list. Princess Mononoke isn't even main stream, much more Japanese anime cult film. Fabulous but not really up most people's ally. And Blue Velvet? Oh man that one was obscure at best. You wouldn't like it.

  4. WOW! I have seen 29 of those.. amazing. I am copying this and sending to my email.. Thanks!

  5. I've seen over half of these, woo-hoo! Guess that means I'm more than halfway to dying, LOL!

    Seriously though, you MUST rent Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and To Kill a Mockingbird asap!! They are terrific movies that are on my favorites list!!

    I may steal this idea and do it over on my blog, it's cool! :)

  6. Hello, I dropped by from SITS, and I love this list, especially since I love movies, so I borrowed it and did my own on my blog and linked back to you! Love your blog have an awesome day!

  7. I've barely seen any of them!

    But you got to love, "Yippie K-YAY!"

  8. That's funny that snow white and toy story are on the list! Well done and done!

  9. Oh and I've seen a lot of those old ones like 400 Blows, Citizen Cane, Annie Hall, 12 Angry Men, One Flew Over the Cookus nest, and Casablanca in a film class I took in college, otherwise I never would have thought to see any of those, especially 400 Blows! But their all not bad if you look at them on the artistic side, not the entertainment value.

  10. I wont watch those scary ones! LOL

  11. what an interesting list of movies.... I have seen very few of these as well.


Talk to me goose....
