IMDB Top 100 Movie List

(Or aka. More Moives To Watch List for My 211 Movies in 2011....)

Well. So far in my 22 years of existence, I have seen only 12% of this list. A little bit disappointing? I'm not sure of the word I'm after but, wow. I feel I want to watch them all again and get a fresh perspective.

To note, I have watched Inception about 3 times; enjoyed Leon: The Professional, it was a different movie to what I would usually watch; also enjoyed and liked The Departed (want it on DVD) and Spirited Away (own it on DVD~ =)), Inglorious Basterds was extremely graphic and although I must admit was an above average movie and despite the graphicness, I liked it. And, the rest are just mediocre and not worth mentioning.

This was taken from Cafe Chick at Tales from a Cafe Chick, who lives in New Zealand! I love finding New Zealand bloggers! ^^ Top 100 under the cut.

  1. You found me!
    I will definitely be popping by more :)

    Love the 100 list, I've only seen 27!! Absolutely shocking!
    I may have to copy this list to make sure I see the rest!

    Congrats on graduating! :)

  2. I am looking forward to working my way through more of the list. I also have several book lists I'm keen to make a dent in, too. Looks like it's going to be an 'inside' winter for me!

  3. Oh wow I was amazed to have only seen 14 of those! Slightly disappointed not to see some of my favourites in there.

  4. i'll have to go through this and calculate my percentage too! :) these lists help narrow down the choices at the movie store sometimes. wait, am i the only one that still goes to movie stores?? maybe... <3 EverRubyGirl.blogspot.com
