(Re) Introduction

I just reopened my Netflix account with the intent of going through the AFI Top 100 from bottom to top. The American Film Institute is a bunch of folks who get together and decide what the best movies ever are. People tend to accept them as the experts. Here's what you will and won't find here:

  • You WILL get a few paragraphs about the movie.
  • You WON'T get those stupid links scattered through the blog like you don't know how to use Google, Wikipedia, and IMDB. I hate reading multicolored text.
  • You WON'T get to hear about the surprise endings. Even though these are mostly well-known movies and the surprise endings MIGHT no longer be surprises, you MIGHT not know the endings, so I won't ruin them. I hate that.
  • You WON'T get a rating from me like it matters, because it doesn't. These are the AFI Top 100, so it can be assumed they'd all be 4 or 5 star movies. It's not like Surf Ninjas is on the list.
  • You WON'T get them exactly in order. It will be close, but not quite, because some I've already seen and some I can watch online. #35 won't precede #89 in the countdown, but #44 might precede #45.
  • You WILL get a neat little picture, maybe also a YouTube video if I feel like it.
That's all. I'm a smart guy. I like movies. This gives me something to do in conjunction with watching them.
