day zero: my afi 100 list

I posted an earlier version of this a while ago, but this is going to be my official Day Zero version. Task #15 on my list requires me to watch all the movies on the AFI Top 100 list; so here's where I'll keep track of my progress. So far I've seen 44 out of 100: not bad, but not nearly good enough. See the full list, after the jump.

I only counted movies I've seen in the last fifteen years; anything before age sixteen is probably something I don't remember too well. Movies I've seen have been struck through. How many on this list have you seen? And do you have any recommendations as to where on the list I should start?

    You have some great movies left. I would do a double feature of The Philadelphia Story and To Kill a Mockingbird. Excellent movies.

    Oh I saw that you posted The Best Years of Our Lives; that's one of my favorite movies actually, and it makes me glad that it's on the list of yours!

    I have seen 19/100 of these movies. I liked Blade Runner, and to kill a mockingbird wasn't half bad either.
