#3 - List of 101 Films I Can't Believe I Haven't Seen

Image hosting by Photobucket

This was a fascinating list to come up with. The rationale was films I can't believe I haven't seen. To narrow it down to 101 was a bit of a challenge, but I decided on a group that included classics, films that 'everyone' has seen, things that are always on 'best of' lists, actors I love, directors I love, or look so odd I have to see them, some are Canadian and a fair few, are films I already OWN (see picture).

Ooooh, this is a great list! I hope that I get to see a bunch of these with you. And I have a bunch of them you can borrow!

You know Shannon, I think you were with me when we watched Gone with the Wind but you weren't super interested at the time, very young. I just thought that maybe as you watched it, it may feel familiar to you.

You're gonna love Xanadu!

Shannon said...

Its quite possible that I have seen Gone with the Wind and a few others but I don't remember if I did! I actually know that I must have seen Xanadu, but really don't remember it at all. Would be great to see them now that I actually want to! Thanks for the offer to lend a few Jamie, I'm sure we can watch some together!!

If Jamie doesn't have it, I have Xanadu on VHS if you'd like a treat in the mail.

Gone with the Wind is one of those movies that takes more than 3 hours to watch, at least on cable, so a lot of it was fuzzy for me too.

Shannon said...

OMG do you really have Xanadu?? I would love to borrow it, it was one I wasn't sure if I would be able to find except maybe on MuchMoreMusic or something, I would love that!!!

You got it! I'll send it to you as soon as I can. Have fun!
