A tickybox list of IMDB's Top 100 Movies, stolen from truecatachresis. I've changed the colours in the resulting table so you can actually read it.

I've only seen sixteen of the top 100. A quick count suggests that there are a further 19 that I actively want to see (there are very few I wouldn't want to see given infinite time etc.) and that there are about 6 which I own (or have already videoed) but haven't got round to watching yet. I just seem to find it hard to block out 2+ hours of Not Doing Anything Else in which to watch a film; it's easier to find time to read, or to listen to music, because I can do them while doing other things.
