At home, I prefer watching movies that I've seen before. It annoys the [expletive] out of Jon, but I kind of want to zone out when I'm in front of the TV and I feel like I have to focus if we put on something new. He can and does sometimes convince me to broaden my cinematic horizons, but he'd agree that it takes a lot of effort.
That's probably why I've seen so few of the 50 best movies ever. The list below came from AFI's list of the top 100 movies, compiled in 2007, and I can only check off 19 of them. That's 38%. Not so impressive. Maybe this would be a good challenge for me - over the next year, do you think I can manage to make it through the other 31? That's one every week and a half. I can try, though I'm not optimistic... after all, never have I ever been a movie person!
