54. Mostly obvious choices but there are some on there that I either should see and I haven't yet and some that I just have no interest in seeing.

I'm at 90. Though I should probably hold off seeing the rest ... I don't want to risk dying.

Re: Yahoo's 100 Movies to See Before You Die

Great, it's a college film professor's wet dream of a list right there. [Most of those films I saw thanks in part due to film classes through college.]

I've seen 84 films on the list. I feel old and I am barely near my mid-20s.

I heard Sean Phillips promoting this list yesterday on a satellite radio show. Dude's definitely got a face for radio ...and voice.

Anyway, I've caught 67 of those and own a couple that I haven't gotten around to watching.

Re: Yahoo's 100 Movies to See Before You Die

Yet another reminder on how large my unwatched pile is at the moment. There are a couple dozen films on that list that I own but haven't seen, and a couple more that I think I own.

Re: Yahoo's 100 Movies to See Before You Die

I've only seen 48 of them and my unwatched pile only contains 1 of the rest. Almost half-way there.

But I've seen everything listed under E, J, and U. That has to count for something, right?

But you MUST before you die. Don't take Yahoo lightly. They will hook you up to life support and clamp your eyes open Clockwork Orange style (why wasn't that on the list) until you've watched all 100.

I'm at 70, with about 6 more that I own but haven't gotten to yet.
