On the internet, I found a list of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It was a very long list. I went through it, but I hadn’t seen that many movies before 1950, and it had several movies I suspect were fake.

So then I found the list 101 Movies You Must See Before You Die, and I’ve seen 93 of them. What does that prove? That I watch a lot of movies.

    I think there will be 202 or 303 must see movies before i die xD

  • I’ve only seen 30…just went through them

  • I know others have already said this, but Amelie really is such a cute movie. It is just really cool. I highly recommend it.

  • You have GOT to see Amelie if you haven’t already. Ah-MAZ-ing!


  • Wait – “The Birdcage” didn’t make that list? No way. It’s got to be one of the best films ever. (I’ve seen a bunch of them too!)

  • I’ve probably seen a similar number off that list. I’d highly recommend seeing Jean de Florette (and the sequel Manon de Sources), Amelie and Cinema Paradiso. I’m amazed that there are so few older films on that list though.

  • I love movies too. And, I’ve seen almost all of these. But then, I’m a lot older than you. 😉
