List of 100 movies you must see before you die

List of 100 movies you must see before you die

Movie watching is one of the ways some authors get ideas to write books, because let’s face it, there ain’t nothing new under the sun so far as plotlines go. But it’s how an author puts their twist or spin on a plotline that makes the difference. And really, imaginations are limitless and so there are a lot of ways to movies to make a book.

According to IMDb this is the list of 100 movies you should see before you die. They are in order as listed on the IMDb page., but they say this movie listing is “…not ranked in order of importance, popularity or anything, except regular ol’ randomness.”

I have seen 24 out of 100 so about 1/4 of these movies. That’s not a lot of movies watched on this list, folks. I am thinking about trying to see more movies in 2015 – as my reading list has been proven for two years now that I read a lot.
