A movie a week for a year

17 Jan

So, I’m TERRIBLE for not having seen movies that it feels like everyone has. When people reference films in my company I meet them with blank stares and vacant expressions. Sick of hearing “You’ve never seen….?!” I’m attempting to watch a movie a week, films that I really should have seen at the age of 22 or films that are generally considered as being ‘classics’ or iconic. Here’s my list; leave me your thoughts and suggestions!
