The List

Uncategorized

I’ve come to realize that there are a million and one movies and TV shows I have yet to glimpse. Everyone has their cherished film and I am mildly tired of the guffaws and the “OH MY GOD, you haven’t SEEN that?”

There is also the massive number of films that I want to make it a point to see.

So, here it is: The List. I won’t be working through it in chronological order, but I’ll be working through it nonetheless, watching one movie after another until I get through it completely.
