Out of this list of the 50 films to see before you die, I've watched 35 of 'em.

Of course it is a British list, which is why many of the choices seem ludicrous.

Update: Interestingly, out of AFI's list of the 100 greatest American films of all time, I've seen 99; the only one left is A Place in the Sun. This was accomplished through a combination of taking film classes in college, working at Blockbuster video for a summer, and being a hard-core couch potato. I could probably use some more friends.

Wait. Does that mean when you see all 50, I die?

If yuo watch Erin Brockovich three times and believe that it is an important movie you die. Interestingly enough, you know what you watch in hell for all eternity? Shawshank redemption.

I would love to hear your review of 1927's The Jazz Singer. You know before I put it on my Netflix list.

Why get the original when you can get the 1980 version starring Neil Diamond as the Jazz Singer? It doesn't have the racist black-face scene, and it features the hit song "America."
