There'll obviously be other movies throughout the year, but I really plan on watching these. And considering I saw over 200 movies last year, I'll get through these just fine.

What else would you suggest I see?


  1. there's some really great ones on there! I hope you enjoy them.

  2. I'm really interested in reading your opinion on There Will Be Blood. The ending in particular, it's really shocking, but at the same time I found it strangely funny.

  3. This is a very interesting watch list, I believe I'm gonna enjoy watching some of those films again too.

  4. I see you've managed to watch almost all of them. Of the ones you have left, I would highly recommend Ikuru and The Ox-Bow Incident. Rashomon is a classic for the device of different perspectives on a story. The Breakfast Club is a classic for the 80s generation. Barton Fink is slow for the first hour or so then really takes off. In the Name of the Father didn't do much for me.


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
