AFI Top 100 Movie Meme

AFI Top 100 Movie Meme

I stole this meme from this blog.

Below is the AFI’s list of their 100 best movies of all time.

  • I’ve bolded movies that I’ve seen.
  • I’ve put a plus sign (+) next to movies which I especially loved.
  • I’ve put a minus sign (-) next to movies which I just don’t get what all the fuss is about.
  • If there is neither a plus or minus sign, it means I liked it (maybe a little, maybe a lot) but it just doesn’t hold a special place in my heart for whatever reason.
  • I’ve added comments randomly.

Which movies have you seen or not seen? Which movie are you the most embarrassed about never having seen? Any movies on the list you flat-out hated?

    Hey, no problem “stealing” from me! The more the merrier! In fact, I think you might be the first person I’ve ever successfully “tagged” (although I didn’t tag anyone specifically, I’m still counting it).

    You own all those treasures and never seen them (and own several I haven’t seen)? I wouldn’t last 2 minutes in your house without plopping down on the sofa for a flick.

    Americanmum…. my husband is a DVD-aholic! We have so many, they barely fit on the two bookcases we have. I don’t know when I’ll find the time to watch all of the movies I haven’t seen. Sometimes we’re just in a mood to re-watch an old favorite…. like last night, we watched The Fugitive. (LOVE Harrison Ford!)

    And before you come check out our movie stash, you may want to wait till we order our new LaZBoy couch… it will be much more comfy than the piece of crap we have now. 🙂
