Today started out as a write off but turned out to be pretty successful over all. I got a haircut, which always helps to make me feel better about myself, an I got some things done that I’ve been meaning to do. And now I am with Ashley and we are going to watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, because neither of us have seen it.
Which got me thinking about other classic movies that I have somehow missed. I figured if I have a list somewhere, I will never be at a loss when I feel like watching a movie but don’t know what to watch.
The Godfather (Series)
I used to think I didn’t really want to see them, and then one day I realized I’d never seen them and really was missing out. I just need to find the right person to watch with.
Star Wars (Original Trilogy)
Okay, hear me out. I’ve seen them all, technically, but it was a really long time ago and I don’t really remember them. So I am working on it again. Ashley is working me through the trilogy. I’ve watched A New Hope so far. Don’t kill me, fellow nerds.
I tend to avoid Tarantino films, because
they scare me I’m not a big fan of violence, but I feel like this the one exception I should make.
It’s A Wonderful Life
My family loves Christmas movies, so it’s surprising that I’ve never seen this. Every year I put it on a list of things to do at Christmas, and every year I miss it.
I’m a huge fan of Watsky’s remix of the Simon and Garfunkel song, so probably I should see this movie at some point.
I don’t really know what the big deal about this movie is, but maybe when I watch it I will understand.
I’ve seen quite a few Audrey Hepburn movies, and I’ve loved them, but for some reason I’ve never seen Roman Holiday, and I really want to.
I’ve seen two Hitchcock movies in my life, one was Shadow of a Doubt for a film study class, and the other was Psycho. I really want to just have a night where I watch all the Hitchcock movies I’ve never seen, including Vertigo, and The Birds, and The Lodger.
There are definitely more, but I this list could go on forever. Add some to my list if you can think of them!
