I’ve seen 100 of these 257 movies

An interesting list that I’d guess was put together by a 20-something person who has a particular liking for comedies and horror flicks. I watch a LOT of movies, but you wouldn’t know it from my score on this list; many of my favorites aren’t on here. The list is very short on action/adventure movies and films made before about 2000. Where are the Batman movies? Where is James Bond? And please — two movies about Ewoks, and one made by Mel Brooks?

Of course, if I was making the list, I wouldn’t probably have included any horror movies at all, because I don’t watch them. And I’d have very few recent comedies, because I don’t like most of them either. (No, I don’t think Will Ferrell is God. So shoot me.)

I did add a few movies to the list — sequels, and films closely related to others. Some day I’m going to try to list every movie I’ve seen…
