Top 100 Movies (IMDb)

Back in May 2017 my nephew Andrew, his then fiancee (now wife) Danelle and myself decided to expand how range of movies by watching the top 100 movies of all time.  We decided to use the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) Top 100 listing of all time.

This will mean we will get to see some classics you’d never get to see and maybe even more importantly different types of movies.  Plus additional bonus a chance to see some movies that I loved once again.
