What do you think?


  1. WooHoo more movies! I think I might borrow this for my 100th post.There are quite a few I have never heard of, guess I will look into it.

  2. I'm not sure I agree with about 1/2 that list ... however, I must say that you have to see Jaws! It's only as good as your imagination, and I never realized how vividly I could picture things until I saw it. I actually like 1,2 & 3 ... and if you watch them all, you have to follow it up with Deep Blue Sea as they have throwbacks to the Jaws movies in it. Happy Movie Going!

    P.S. And what's up with not having Gone with the Wind on there???

  3. I think it is cool and I am going to do it on my blog this week.

    I also think they left some great movies out of the list... but that is to be expected I guess. Everyone has a different additions and subtractions they would make to this list.

    Some of the movies on the list I have seen once are not movies I have as favorites and would not necessarily recommend to others but the list is interesting none the less.

  4. Congratulations on winning Tara's giveaway at Life, as it is!


Always great to hear from you! I ALWAYS read your comments, and they make my day!
