If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time you may have noticed on more than a few occasions I will mention that I have not seen some films that folks are raving about. That is not to suggest that I have not watched many films including almost 200 of the IMDB top 250. Similarly, if you have a film blog the chances are pretty good that I have stopped by and mentioned that I was adding some film that you reviewed to my must watch list. You may have thought to yourself that I was just saying this, and that no such list exists. Well let me assure you my list is very real and very long. Some with a delicate constitution, might even be startled and faint when viewing its immense size.
I hope that by sharing a few items on this list I will find the inspiration to hunt down these films and finally give them a watch. While watching these film will be a good start it will hardly make a dent in my list. In a way I guess that it is a positive that there are so many great films that I have yet to experience. Just think of all the fun and enjoyment I have to look forward to.
I am a big fan of animated films and I can’t tell you how many people have suggested that I check out Grave of the Fireflies and have sung its praises.
I have a giant gap in my film viewing and that hole needs to be filled with French New Wave Cinema. No snide comments but to the best of my knowledge I have yet to view any Jean-Luc Godard films. Countless people have suggested that a good place to start would be viewing of Breathless.
It took me years to follow my brother’s suggestion and watch Let the Right One In. I have never been a huge fan of horror films but I found the film absolutely amazing. You can check out my review right here. Several folks have suggested that the remake Let Me In is also a great watch. Of course up until this point I have failed to follow their advice.
The newest addition to my ever growing list comes from Keith at Keith and the Movies. It is true I have never seen Roman Holiday despite being a fan of both Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. While this is the newest entry on my list I am positive that it will not be my last.
So when you get done laughing at me and my list of glaring omissions with regards to the films I have yet to view take a moment to think about films you have yet to watch. Todays hump day question is what films are on your must watch list?
