Top 100 Movies (IMDB)

D09D88CA-5D4C-43E7-AEC6-AA552AD92BD6When my nephew Andrew and his fiancee Danelle moved into my apartment while they are saving for a house of their own Danelle came up with a great idea – let’s watch the top 100 movie’s of all time.

Now 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 I loved again.

Since June 2017 we started working our way from 100 upwards.  It will take a while.  Ratings are out of 10 and I’ll post a short review after each.  To compare with a different generation I’ll ask Danelle for her rating and a short comment.
