I have 31 movies left to watch as part of #40 on my 101/1001 list. So this afternoon I figured I would get organised. I’ve gone through the list and figured out which movies I’d like to watch and I’m going to try and watch at least a movie a day for the next month so that I can cross that one off my list entirely. I’m surprised by some of the movies that made the IMDB 250 list actually, it seems to me like there is a whole lot of SciFi on there! I’m also (pleasantly) surprised by how many of the movies I hadn’t already seen, especially since I consider myself to be a bit of a movie buff.

Here is the list of movies I’ll be watching over the next month or so:

  1. The Wrestler (2009)
  2. Star Wars (1977)
  3. Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  4. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
  5. Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
  6. Star Trek (2009)
  7. Blade Runner (1982)
  8. There Will Be Blood (2007)
  9. Annie Hall (1977)
  10. Old Boy (2003)
  11. Strangers on a Train (1951)
  12. Unforgiven (2003)
  13. It Happened One Night (1934)
  14. Rocky (1976)
  15. Harold and Maude (1971)
  16. In the Heat of the Night (1967)
  17. Glory (1989)
  18. Great Expectations (1946)
  19. Manhattan (1979)
  20. The Pianist (2002)
  21. Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
  22. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)
  23. A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
  24. The Conversation (1974)
  25. Letters From Iwo Jima (2006)
  26. Children of Men (2006)
  27. The Terminator (1984)
  28. The Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
  29. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
  30. Schindler’s List (1993)
  31. Casablanca (1942)

Luke will be happy, he has been trying to get me to sit down and watch Star Wars with him ever since he discovered, 7 years ago, that I had never seen it, likewise for Terminator. I’m looking forward to watching To Kill a Mockingbird, it’s one of my favourite books so that will be interesting. Anyway! That’s my plan for the next 31 days.. wish me luck!
