100 Films Once More, 65 To Go

Well I have done it again. I have accomplished another viewing of 100 films I have never seen before in my life. This has taken over the last 63 days of my life. If you haven’t been following me, a while back on May 17, 2009, I got this crazy idea in my head that I would up my film palette and explore new films and watch a whole bunch that I have never seen before due to an apparent realization that I, in fact, have never seen a lot of movies. I was some what aware of this, but this growing hobby of film had not made me realize the severity of what I have been missing out with such limited films I have seen.

So starting May 17, 2009, I had ventured out an idea to accomplish an original goal of 100 movies by the end of the summer; practically a 100 movies in 100 days. By the time I finished the goal I was at 93 days in and felt that I should try this again. By the time I did, here we are 300 films later.

This Time I feel like my films I have chosen have broaden dramatically and even opened up to computer animated films, which is something I never would have allowed before. I seem to be running out of classics, though, as this list appears to be more modern to me, but still dwells in old classics.

As I stated before, I have finished watching another 100 films I have never seen before in a startling 63 days. As this third trial had started I figured I would change my goal of instead of just watching 100 movies every time in 100 days, I would try to just watch more than a years worth under a years time. Soooo, I currently am at 300 films under my wing and at day number 248. Only 65 more films in 117 days……I’m pretty sure I can do that and we’ll see how many films I can get to by May 17 this year. Am I sick person?

Now with out further ado, my current list of 100 films I have never seen before:
