AFI - Top 100 Films

I was checking out my blogging (and 2Peas) friend, Jen's blog over at It's My Life and one of the things she has on her 2014 goal list is to see 10 of the American Film Industry's Top 100 Films.

That is a great goal for the year.  So...I decided to see how many of them I have seen and how many I haven't.

Well...since I am a movie buff, I am sure it is no surprise that I have seen A LOT of them - a total of 74!!!

There are 2 listed that I've seen bits and pieces of, but not the entire movie:
  • Chinatown 
  • Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf

There is 1 that I am pretty sure I have seen but not 100% sure I have:
  • The Searchers

So if you count those 3, there are 26 on the list that I haven't seen - many of them are older movies - I mean like one of them is 98 years old !!  No wonder I haven't seen it. 

Two of the movies on the list, I am not sure I can watch - Saving Private Ryan & Schindler's List - I just am not sure I can watch them.

At any rate, here is the listing of movies on AFI's Top 100 List that I have yet to see (in full).  Listed in order by year of release.  I guess I will need to check Turner Classic Movies and keep an eye out for them.
