This is the list of the American Film Institute's top 100 movies. Because I am a nut I am starting this meme, even though I am sure it's already been around a hundred times. But, still I am curious since I've made watching all of these my summer project.

Copy, paste into journal and then bold the ones you've seen....(If I were feeling really nutsy I'd italicize the ones I have queued up in the TiVo.)

I tivo'd Citizen Kane today. I had no idea it was about Hearst.
Did you ever see the movie RKO 231? It's all about the making of Citizen Kane. A lot of people didn't like it, I thought it was pretty good though. And like the immature person I am, I giggle everytime I hear Rosebud, because I know what it really means...
