AFI Top 100




I decided to use the 10th anniversary list as opposed to the original, just because there’s a more modern selection. I have crossed off the ones that I’ve already seen, no need to go again. But I’ve left off the ones that I know I’ve seen, but have no memory of. I know that I watched some like it hot with my mum in my primary school holidays once, funnily though I remember nothing about the plot. So watch it again I will!
