around-the-world-in-80-daysTwo years later, and I’ve finally finished watching the Top 100 Grossing Films of All-Time! I had already seen 68 of the 100, so I averaged about one movie every three weeks. While I’ve enjoyed more of the movies from Ebert’s 102 Movies You Must See list, watching the top 100 grossing gives you an interesting snapshot of American culture through the past 100 years. Some of the movies are hardly classics, but it was fun to consider why they were so popular in the specific decades.

My Favorites

I didn’t watch 3 horror movies that were on the list, because I hate horror movies — and it’s my list, so I can do what I want!

    I think I found your blog via Tara’s, but wanted to say what a fun goal I think this is! I’m doing the AFI top 100 for my list (if by doing I mean seeing 1 film in 8 months), but I like the idea of watching what’s popular, not necessarily critically acclaimed…
