So I like to consider myself a big movie guy. I love to watch movies and dive into the deeper meaning behind anything important or symbolic. I love reading articles talking about behind the scenes stories and inside jokes between the cast. That being said, I recently stumbled upon the Rotten Tomatoes “Top 100 Movies of All Time” list and I realized that I haven’t seen a good amount of the movies on there. In fact, I’ve only seen 16 of them. But after going through the list, I have decided to go with IMDb’s list instead. Rotten Tomatoes’ list was simply just incorrect.
So today is officially when I begin my quest to see the entire list before the year’s end. Now, I have seen a decent amount of these movies, so when I come up on those choices, I will just skip them and move on to the next movie, unless they are one of my favorite movies ever, then I will rewatch it. (Aren’t I a giver?) I will begin at #100 and move to #1, giving you a blog for each film.
My scale will go from 1-10 for a few categories:
-Writing- Is the script fluent and believable?
-Acting- Do the actors seem to fit their roles?
-Watchability- Would I watch this movie if I wasn’t on this cinematic adventure?
-Overall- I’m going to rank these in a few sections
–> 1-5.9 means it sucked and I wouldn’t tell a soul to waste their time
–> 6-6.9 its not a bad flick, I wouldn’t watch it again, but I don’t regret it
–> 7-8.9 means its good and I’d recommend it to others
–> 9+ means it should win an Oscar and I have already bought it to watch it over and over again
I almost guarantee that you will disagree with me on most things that I say, but I suggest that you watch along with me so we can compare notes.
First up on the agenda: #100 – Monty Python and the Holy Grail
