Starting My Movie-fi-cation

For years I thought I was pretty educated when it

came to movies. Heck, I even prided myself on the

amount of movies I had seen. However, I have realized

that I am not the movie aficionado I once believed myself

to be. Sooooo, now that I am spending more time at home

as many of you also are, I figured it was the perfect time for a

movie-fi-cation (Thank you Pitch Perfect!).

Throughout this course my homework will be to watch

movies off of three separate lists consisting of about 100

movies each. By the end I hope to receive my official

Doctorate of Movies so wish me luck!

…………………………………………….

The first list is a list of the 100 Greatest Movies selected by a

panel of more than 1500 leaders of the American movie

community at the American Film Institute.

……………………………………………………….

As you can see there isn’t a single movie on the list from the

21st century and most of them are movies I have never

heard of so yeah, love that for me. I am super nervous

that I won’t find any of these movies enjoyable, but

I have been surprised by movies before!

………………………………………………….

The second list is one that was constructed by myself

and my friends when asked the question “What are three

movies you think everyone should see at least once in their lifetime?”

…………………………………………………………

(My choices were Mean Girls, A Christmas Story, and Forrest Gump.)

…………………………………………………..

The third and final list comes from IMDB and is

a list of 100 Movies Everyone Should See Before They Die.

Luckily for me there are a lot of movies that crossover on

each of these three lists so I am not stuck watching 300

movies, but there are still a large number left so fingers

crossed that I can stick with it! I’m excited to see what

movies I have been missing out on as well as what

movies, if any, should not have made it onto these lists. I

will be posting my thoughts and reactions to these movies

as I make my way through them so if you are curious about

my opinion on some of your favorite movies be sure to keep

an eye out for new posts! Also, you can follow the Everyday

Adventurers on Instagram where I will be posting what

movies I am watching so you can watch along with me if you want!

How many movies on these lists have you seen? What

are your three movies you think everyone should watch

at least once? Let me know in the comments!

  1. This is such a fun idea! There are so many classic movies that I haven’t seen, I know I should really take the time to educate myself a little! I think it’s a good idea to have a few different lists to work from, just to keep things fresh! I’m sure you’ll have a blast working through them!
