44. Watch as many movies from the IMDb top 250 as possible

I love watching movies, but not all movies are a joy to watch. About a week ago, I watched the Dutch movie Assepoester; Een modern sprookje and I knew it would be horrible (and I was so, so right). To avoid situations like that, I want to watch movies from the IMDb top 250. The list frequently changes depending upon movies that just came out and are not rated yet. To avoid having to change the list over and over again, I’ve chosen to copy the list down today (Janurari 16th 2014) and not change it after today. The list I’m writing down today, is the list of movies I’m going to watch.

  1. OKAY. WE ARE GOING TO WATCH PULP FICTION+THE DARK KNIGHT TOGETHER AND NO EXCUSES YOUNG LADY.
    I’ve been planning to do such a thing for aaaaaaaages, I really should get going. There are lots of great movies on this list :D and I always feel kinda silly when I’ve no clue what the Godfather is about oops.

    • NAME YOUR PLACE AND TIME AND I’LL BE THERE!
      And same feeling, so that’s why I’m doing this! My brother even had posters from some movies in his room and I’ve never seen them. He didn’t raise his sister well.
