IMDB Top 100

At work, we had a chat about actors and one of my colleagues told me that he was a movie-lover. I asked him if he saw all the movies from the IMDB top 250 list.

First of all, he didn't know about that website. Secondly, I figured out that he has never seen movies like Usual Suspects, The Godfather or The Shawshank Redemption. I know they are younger than me but still those are must-see ones… especially if you are a cinephile. 😉

About myself, I've seen only 104 105 movies of these 250 titles. One thing that showed up when I looked over that list is that I couldn't figure out if I watched some of them completely or just a couple of minutes. By example, Forrest Gump is one of the fews that I can't remember what is it about. So I guess, I've never seen it or I didn't like it and my brain just removed it from my memories.

Anyway, I guess I found what to watch for the next couple of weeks.
