36 out of 100...

I have 36 more movies to go until I finish all of the top 100 AFI movies of all time. Considering I started off having already seen about 50, I still have a ways to go. Some I could cross off my life, for example I could cross off Dr. Strangelove, but in reality I did miss the first 20 minutes of the movie. Sure, 20 minutes isn't that much but I can't say I've seen the ENTIRE movie. Same goes for Jaws, Rocky, and The Godfather Part II. I'm missing about 20 minutes of each movie. Some I'm not even sure I want to see. The Searchers--not so much. Not into the Western genre. The General--silent film. Not into the whole black and white thing with no sound. After seeing visually tasty movies such as AVATAR, seeing a audio and visually lacking movie isn't so appealing. But, I told myself I would get through it. So I will. Here are the movies I have left:

"City Lights"
"The Searchers"
"The General"
"High Noon"
"The Godfather Part II"
"The Bridge on the River Kwaii"
"Treasure of the Sierra Madre"
" Dr. Strangelove"
"King Kong"
"The Deer Hunter"
"The Gold Rush"
"Duck Soup"
"Sullivan's Travels"
"The African Queen"
"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
"Saving Private Ryan"
"In the Heat of the Night"
"All the President's Men"
"Modern Times"
"The Wild Bunch"
"Easy Rider"
"Night at the Opera"
"Swing Time"
"The French Connection"
"The Last Picture Show"
"Do the Right Thing"
"Yankee Doodle Dandy"
