*Today’s blog isn’t really about Chariots of Fire

I have now been doing this blog since Septemeber 2009. I have seen 450 movies so far out of 1103 from the original 1001 list and all updated lists. Yes, I am now working from the 1100-Plus list of Movies You Must See Before You Die. I've seen a little over 40% of the films on all the lists.

Maybe I’ll finish. Maybe I’ll quit. Maybe I’ll die first.

If it is the latter, please have my obituary read something like “Keeled over from angst while experiencing an Antonioni film or dropped dead from an excessive adrenaline rush while watching The Seven Samurai.”

You just never know what will happen in this life. As they say in one of the 1001 films, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” I can’t remember which film that is from, but you get the idea.


  1. I think it would be awesome if you reviewed every film on the list except for Chariots of Fire.

  2. That was my original plan, but I'm afraid I finally broke down and watched it. I'll have to find a new movie "not to watch" during the second half of this blog.
