The first hundred movies down, I wanted to do a little post recapping a few of the more memorable films I have watched so far. It has taken me almost exactly two years to go from #1 until now, so here’s hoping the next hundred won’t take so long!
The Red Shoes, because movies involving dancing are always tragic
Most ‘WTF’ moments in a movie:
The Tin Drum. The less said, the better.
Movie to most question my life choices:
Movie to best understand a Simpsons reference:
Citizen Kane. ‘Rosebud’ from Season 5 is a wonderful episode on its own, back when the Simpsons had heart. Watching ‘Citizen Kane’ enhanced many of the more obscure references for me.
Movie I was most likely to utter, ‘War is hell, man’:
Rome, Open City, which was also a top contender for ‘saddest movie’
A tough category, but I’ll have to go with The Dead
Psycho. I’m still disappointed.
Movie in which I rolled my eyes the most:
Written on the Wind. Another tough category to narrow down.
And finally…… Most misleading title:
My brilliant Career, in which the main character was neither brilliant or had a career.
And with that, I’m ready to move on. For my next few movies, I am asking my readers (Hi, Mom!) to send in suggestions for movies they would like to see me review. A couple of things to consider:
- The movie has to be on my ‘1001 Movies to See Before You Die’ list. *I tried to post a link, but can’t get to work currently.*
- No horror movies because I watch those in October.
You can contact me by commenting on this post, emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tying your suggestion to a big red balloon and sending it off into the air. Feel free to recommend anything, whether it is something you love or something with which to torture me. If I can survive El Topo, I can survive anything.
