Gotta Catch ‘Em All: MOVIES!

I have seen a lot of movies in my day. (718 so far but whose counting?) When it comes to finding something new to watch there are a lot of references I can go to. Reviews, lists, hobos on the street; you name them I’ve used them! But one of the bigger sources for me is massive tome that is 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. Now I haven’t even gotten close to matching this list but it is a great source to remind myself all of the classic films I need to see (hopefully I don’t die like the title warns). Down below I’m going to give my personal list of what I’ve seen on this list and I suggest you do the same too! In fact, use the comments on the bottom to give me your stats about how much you’ve seen. (Note: There have been several updates to this book where films get pushed aside for recent release. So it is actually more than a thousand.)
