My first order of business with this new site is to move everything from my original website (100 Bag of Popcorn) to here. So here is the little backgrounder on the reason for this list and my progress thus far will be posted soon!
I've always been attracted to the big screen for one reason or another. Sometimes it's because I can relate to the main character. Other times it's because I wish I could travel back to that time and live a day in their lives. Mostly, I watch movies for the same reason many other people watch movies, because for a few hours you can laugh, cry or scare yourself silly and just forget about everything going on in your life. That's the best part about movies I think. So, being a movie buff, you would think that I had seen all of the great classics. Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Dr. Strangelove... but I am openly admitting that I have not seen any of these movies, along with many other American "classics". So, in order to help complete my cinema education, I have decided to watch the AFI Top 100 Movies of all time and write a blog about it. Now, I don't claim to be a movie expert. Just an avid fan. Much of what I say you may disagree with, but that's OK. That's the great thing about movies, everyone sees each one differently. I already know I will be cringing through Silence of the Lambs.. I guess I just hope that anyone reading my blog will enjoy my commentary and maybe can either relate to how I feel, or encourage a discussion about our difference in opinions... Enjoy!
