As Bert tells me every day, I am a nerd.
Specifically a checklist nerd.
I love checklists! I have checklists for everything. Packing, home inventory, wine inventory, medication, household chores, pet care, groceries, Internet websites, etc.
But now, I have taken my checklist nerdiness to new heights and have merged it with my movie geekiness. A simple math equation really.
(Yes I have math nerdiness too).
Checklist Nerdiness + Movie Geekiness = Total Awesome Awesomeness!
I am a huge movie lover as I've mentioned many times before. Ever since I took a film class in college, I just love dissecting films and giving them my own, very influential, *rating. Old new, black & white, color, it doesn't matter I will watch any movie.
So I decided that I cannot call myself a true movie lover unless I have seen the top 100 movies, and of course when I got that idea, my nerdy mind went directly to:
So, I'd like to invite everyone to join me in this journey so you too can reap the total awesomeness that is total awesome awesomeness! Yes, I have decided to share that very checklist with you.
I could easily have this checklist copyrighted and charge ridiculous amounts of money for it, but out of the kindness of my wee little heart, I'm giving it to you free of charge.
Because I like free.
AFI Top 100 Movie Checklist
Just click on the link to download. (It looks much cuter on my computer but for some reason the font wouldn't stay when I uploaded it.)
In 2007, AFI presented the top 100 movies of all time. (Which means any movies made after 2007 will not appear on the list.)
I decided to start at 100 and move my way on up to the number one movie. Right now I am on number 96, Pulp Fiction. (A movie that I LOVE! *4.5)
To help you in rating the movies, I will share with you my special rating system. (It is a very accurate movie rating system. *ahem*)
Scale 0.0 tot 5.0
0.0 - Worst. Movie. Ever: "I would rather die than watch this movie again."
0.5 - I really hated this movie: "I wouldn't wish this movie on my worst enemy."
1.0 - I hated this movie: "I wanted to poke my eyes out."
1.5 - I really didn't like this movie: "I just wasted 2 hours of my life on this?"
2.0 - I didn't like this movie: "I would never rent or buy this movie."
2.5 - This movie was just so-so: "Meh, I could take it or leave it."
3.0 - This movie was okay: "Definitely rental worthy but I wouldn't see it in theaters."
3.5 - I liked this movie: "Definitely theater worthy, I would go see this movie again."
4.0 - I really liked this movie: "I'm definitely buying this for my movie collection!"
4.5 - I loved this movie: "I totally connected with this movie, I could watch it again and again."
5.0 - Best. Movie. Ever: "I want to marry this movie and have it's babies."
So download the list, print it out and get to watching!
Do it for the children.
