I have officially decided that one of my personal goals is to watch every movie on the AFI’s list of 100 Greatest American Movies of All Time. I would like to credit my friend Ashley for giving me the idea to conquer this quest. 🙂 I don’t want to be unrealistic with my deadline goal, but I would like to complete at least 75 % of the list by the end of this year.
Now you’re probably wondering why in the world I am making this a personal goal, and why the heck am I giving myself a deadline. I have been pondering lately about my knowledge of classic films and books. Unfortunately, I came up short because the truth of the matter is that I never ventured to read or watch the classic stuff. People make references to this or that, and quote such and such from whatever that movie is ALL OF THE TIME…. but I always find myself secluded in this little corner of “I have no idea what you’re talking about”. Therefore, I am going to stop being left in the dark and take matters into my own hands. The only reason I am giving myself a deadline is because if I don’t hold myself accountable, then I’ll forget all about my mission and won’t ever get around to completing it.
So… here is the list. I am working my way from top to bottom. If you’re interested in conquering this list with me, you can print a copy of the movies here.
