In 2014, the librarian and I set our sights on the famous AFI’s Top 100 films of all time. Our goal was to cross off every single one. The only rule was that we both had to see the film. If we each saw it separately before we met, then it counts. But if one of us hadn’t seen a film, no dice.
Heads up Cinephiles, we are working from the 10th anniversary edition of the list. The plan is to go back and watch any of the original 100 films which were removed from the newer list, after we make it through the first list.
Below is the intro and list from the AFI website. I’ll be crossing out the movies as we watch them. As of August 2016, we have 38 left to watch.
AFI’s 100 GREATEST AMERICAN FILMS OF ALL TIME
AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movies – 10th Anniversary Edition is an updated edition to AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movies, a list of the top 100 greatest American films of all time.
Honoring the 10th anniversary of this award-winning series, a jury of 1,500 film artists, critics and historians determined that CITIZEN KANE remained the greatest movie of all time. The television special AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movies – 10th Anniversary Edition originally aired on CBS on June 20, 2007.
