erin is on a quest to watch fifty films before her fiftieth birthday.
fuck. i laughed when i typed fiftieth. like hahah… you’re gonna be old then. and then i remembered… my birthday’s before hers. it’s not so funny, anymore…
anyway. she asked me to make a list of fifty films i feel are worthy of the attention. i know she’s seen at least one i would recommend, dedication, so for yall, i say if you’ve not seen that movie yet, you should totally do so. it’s about a children’s author and his illustrator, and it starts in a porn theater. good stuff — wholly and completely irreverent and wonderfully original. also amy sedaris has a cameo.
anyway. fifty… and i’m omitting things like the lord of the rings, the notebook, star wars, schindler’s list, shawshank redemption, silence of the lambs and when harry met sally because honestly… who hasn’t seen those? if it’s you, ESPECIALLY YOU, ERIN, well… then… that’s just lame as shit, and you should WATCH THOSE, dammit.
a few good men
the great raid
the hundred foot journey
you’re not you
so… my challenge to you, dear readers, is to make me a list of films to watch before i reach that damned milestone. what’s your must-see movie list made of?
