AFI's Top 100 Movies

The American Film Institute released their 10th anniversary edition of the Top 100 films last week. I love movies and watch them all the time. I've highlighted the ones I've seen. I'll have to start watching some of the ones I've missed. Some I don't want to see like Goodfellas. I got that from the library and watched about 1 minute. The language was just over the top. Ugh! I'm thankful we have a great library system where we live. I've been able to get most of these movies from there. Sometimes I have to wait a while if it's new and popular but that's ok. It's fun to see a notice in my e-mail telling me the next movie on my list is in and set aside for me!
