Stolen from proxy jeffm…. Here is IMDB’s list of the top 100 movies. The ones in bold are ones that I have seen, and the ones that are underlined are in the house. I’ve seen 64/100, which means I still have quite a ways to go (although I am apparently doing better than several of my friends… :P) This will be a good way to load up my Netflix queue…

  1. For those kinds of lists, they shouldn’t allow anything like 5 years or younger in… that way it’s more about good films than popular films, although some of them deserve to be there.

    Also, go rent North By Northwest. excellent film. :)

    1. There’s a few movies on there that I think I’ve seen, or that I saw a long time ago that I don’t remember much about. NXNW is one of them.
