50 Movies

I bit the bullet, admitted that the next milestone is effing fifty, and created a 50 before 50 list.

One of the goals to meet is to watch 50 movies that I have not seen, but I feel like I "should" see (or I just want to watch and haven't gotten around to it yet.)  I'm giving myself until 17 June 2023 (it sounds so far away when I put it that way), so I should be able to do this, right?  I think so. 


How did I compile this list?
  • I admitted that there were some fairly "obvious" movies that I've never seen
  • Some are movies I've been meaning to see (like a documentary by Dave Navarro)
  • I asked for suggestions from fellow "fall film challenge" members 
  • I reviewed lists of Academy Award Winners (If a movie has a year after it, then it won an Oscar for Best Picture that year.) 
  • I asked facebook friends for suggestions as well as a couple of blogger buddies that are movie buffs.
  • I added movie adaptations of books that I enjoyed immensely but have yet to see
  • I looked at lists of Australian-made movies

I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
