The Moviegoer

Who doesn't love lists? I looked at the AFI 10 Top 10 movies by genre this morning and was delighted to learn that I have seen EVERY ONE of the movies listed under "animation". Whew! There is still much staring ahead in darkened rooms to be done, however, as I didn't fare so well with the other genres:

I only saw the last 45 minutes, and intended to go look up the lists today. I think I had seen only 2 or 3 of the Epics (and some parts of Gone with the Wind), and only 1 of the Courtroom Dramas (The Verdict). I have seen about 8 or so of the movies you haven't, and I'm sure there are a lot more I haven't seen from the full lists!

Hm, seen all of the SF except 1 (Invasion of the Body Snatchers); haven't seen the classic Disney cartoons (that I remember -- it's quite likely I have seen them). Thanks for posting this list for a reminder! And I feel better that I am not the only one who hasn't seen most of them!

Well I'm a guy, so I only get 10/10 on the epics, although I managed 9/10 in animation and SF.

I too have seen all the animated movies and have seen 8 of 10 movies in three catagories. I think that's the best I'll ever be. The ones I haven't seen are the ones that never caught my attention, Classic or not.
