After a visit to the library book sale, I picked up a well-loved copy of Schneider’s 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. My wife and I decided to start a blog and knock off each of the 1001 films and write about them.
This is our blog… It has a theme song.
We own the FIRST EDITION, but we are also using the list available at THIS LINK to include and renumber the films that are in newer editions. Furthermore, our list is available at THIS LINK in terms of our progress and what dates we watched what.
My favorite film of all time is Harold and Maude, but I also love the films of the Cohen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Charlie Kauffman, Spike Jonze, and many classic films.
I am looking forward to watching a lot of films in this collection – especially some of these classics I have never seen including Intolerance, Frankenstein, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and others that have been on my list that I just never got around to seeing. I am also looking forward to watching some of my favorites over again, and really looking forward to many on the list that are foreign works that I have never heard anything about.
Here is to trying to get through all of them before I die!
I love a good competition… 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die… challenge accepted!
Paging through the book there were most of our favorite films already (confirmation we have great taste in movies), and great short descriptions of many we haven’t viewed yet. Of course, my primary concern is what culinary feast to pair with each. Will post pics of brilliant pairings when they happen.
