Must. Watch. Movies.

I love movies. The people at Netflix might not believe that, since I have only recently committed to watching at least one DVD per weekend (I will eventually get my queue below 200 - I think). Why am I talking about movies? Because Yahoo has come up with a list of 100 movies to see before you die. Oh, and I haven't blogged since my birthday! I'm such a slacker!

Well, maybe I'm not a total slacker. I have seen a lot of movies - or so I thought. Here's what's on the list and what I've seen (mock away in the comments section):
