100 Top Movies of All Time

7 Apr

My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffany’s didn’t even make the list.  For shame!

I wanted to be cool like my big brother, Todd, who posted a list of the American Film Institutes 2007 List of the Top 100 Movies.  I’m gonna bold the ones I’ve seen, and give you a percentage at the end.  I’m even going to make a grading system.  I’ll let you know what I get at the end…be sure to post your score as well.

100%–You deserve your own start on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

90-99–You are the high majesty of film.

80-89–You could teach a college film class.

70-79–You spend a lot of time ordering DVD’s on the internet maybe through NexFlix.

60-69–You took a college film class.

50-59–You wanted to take a college film class.

40-49–You’ve been watching a lot of movies on cable, haven’t you?

30-39–It’s a fun thing to do…I like popcorn.

20-29–I like movies…if I can sit through ’em

10-19–I used to see movies..but then I joined a rock band.

1-9–I don’t see movies hardly…ever.

    Pan’s Labyrinth is a very scary movie…no one should see it. Everyone should hide in their beds and pretend it doesn’t exist. They should also pretend spinal taps don’t exist.

    Movie house? That sounds so charming. 🙂
