Eugh how is it Wednesday again already? It seems like only yesterday I was working on last week’s Imagining the End of Lockdown post… But here we are again! I hmmed and hahed over what to talk about this week, and after watching the first ever Star Wars film for the first time yesterday, I decided to go with 100 films to watch before you die – a cheery thought!
So last night, I was chatting to Jordanne on Skype, and realised how much I was in the mood to settle down and watch a good film. As I said a few minutes ago, Dad and I watched the first ever Star Wars film yesterday – it was my first time of seeing it! – and so when I was settling down to write this post, I couldn’t pick what to put on in the background.
Now I know Netflix and Amazon Prime and Disney+ are all filled with great films, but I just wanted an all time great film. One that shouldn’t be missed. So I started browsing the IMDb 100 Films Before You Die list, and realised how few I’ve seen!
Current Total:- 9/10 – I’m pleasantly surprised! Can you guess which one I haven’t seen?
New Total:- 13/20 – so only 4 out of those 10… and 2 of them were on Sunday Movie Nights during first year uni!
Current Total:- 17/30 – Again only 4 seen in this section… Beginning to realise just how few films I’ve watched, and how many times I rewatch the other ones I have seen!
Oh dear goodness, that was a bad round for me…. I’m now up to 18 out of 40. Can you guess which one I have seen? Clue – it was first year uni, and we played a drinking game to it!
And we are halfway through the list! I’m now sitting on an appalling 22 out of 50. How are you all looking? Any 50/50s? Let’s get on with the other half of the 100 films before you die list…
Out of 60, I now have a whopping 23/60. I’m now regretting this post haha – I’m showing myself up!
New Total:- 24/70!
Okay finally a group I’ve seen more than 1 in! I am now up to (I think) 27/80. I saw I think, because I think I watched Into The Wild with Nuala at uni? I’m not sure, but it does sound very familiar… If I’m wrong then I’ll come back and edit this!
29/90 …. That’s not quite a third of them, but it’s okay I guess? Only 10 more to go!
Aaaaaaaaaand…… (drumroll please)
I finish with a very unimpressive 29 out of 100!
How did you get on with the 100 films to watch before you die? I might make it one of next months’ goals to make sure I get through at least another 21 of these films while I’m still furloughed. What do you think?
