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!

  2. Goodfellas
  3. Forrest Gump
  4. Raiders of the Lost Ark

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?
