Here we go again! :)

Minor modifications to Batman's post from last year:
Batman wrote:
New Year's Movie Resolution (2015)

Might as well be consistent and start a new Resolution thread. I found that having a thread like this actually provides me the impetus to go out and find the movies and then actually watch them, much more than I would if there wasn't a list for me to complete.

Hmm, I should probably make a similar list which includes me cleaning out the garage, painting the window frames, etc.

Previous year's Resolution threads:
2004
2005
2006
2007
2008
2009
2010
2011
2012
2013
2014

Anwho, with props to McT for the original thread and Nunis and Agrajag for their follow-ons, here are the rules"; there are only four, yet some people seem to miss the 10-year-old or different color ones...

Rules
  • Everyone posts a list here of (at least) 7 movies that they have been meaning to see for a long time.
  • All movies must be at least 10 years old.
  • As you watch them, quote your own post, cross them off your list and please highlight the new film(s) in some color so we can keep track and see everyone's progress.
  • Also feel free to link to a review you might have made in the The Last 3 Movies You've Watched thread, or just tell us the number of stars you gave it (see below).

Please do participate; it's been heaps of fun the past few years, and you'll get to see those movies you've missed for some reason.

If you're looking for inspiration, there are several lists on icheckmovies.com that work for me.

Any questions, post them here, or check the old threads.

Format your list something like this. In this example the first movie is one I have just seen, the second is one I saw a while ago, and the third is one I've yet to see.

  1. :check: Movie 1 - :3.5stars:
  2. :check: Movie 2 - :2stars:
  3. :empty: Movie 3

To get it to show up like that, use this code:

Code:
[list=1]
[*] :check: [b][color=#FF0000]Movie 1[/color][/b] :3.5stars:
[*] :check: [s]Movie 2[/s] :2stars:
[*] :empty: Movie 3
[/list]

A little late, but I am in. Like Knarf and sldawgs, I went with the list of Oscar Nominated movies. Based on my original description of this, I felt I needed to go with the movies on that list that I already knew about. Hard to say I've been meaning to see a movie that I am just choosing to see because its on the Oscar list. I also limited it to movies I can stream on Netflix (which has terrible Search functions).


So here it is:

  1. :empty: A Star id Born (1937)
  2. :empty: Shane (1953)
  3. :empty: The Hustler (1961)
  4. :empty: On Golden Pond (1981)
  5. :empty: Terms of Endearment (1983)
  6. :empty: My Left Foot (1989)
  7. :empty: The Cider House Rules (1999)

I'm also going to devote myself to seeing more Best Picture Nominated Movies. However, I found the early twentieth century films to be pretty average so I think I'll start cleaning up my missing ones from 2005 and backwards. I managed 24 last year, so let's try 25 this year. I'll try not to leave half until December.

  1. :empty: Missing (1982)
  2. :empty: The Verdict (1982)
  3. :empty: The Dresser (1983)
  4. :empty: Tender Mercies (1983)
  5. :empty: A Passage to India (1984)
  6. :empty: Places in the Heart (1984)
  7. :empty: Children of a Lesser God (1986)
  8. :empty: Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
  9. :empty: A Room with a View (1985)
  10. :empty: Hope and Glory (1987)
  11. :empty: Moonstruck (1987)
  12. :empty: The Piano (1993)
  13. :empty: Il Postino (1994)
  14. :empty: Sense and Sensibility (1995)
  15. :empty: Secrets & Lies (1996)

Location: Sheila's Dungeon...oh no! Shhh, she's coming.

    Left over from last year.
  1. :check: Days of Wine and Roses 1962 :3stars: Gee, that wasn't depressing at all.
  2. :check: Funny Face 1957 :4stars: Audrey was swonderful and smarvelous, except for the beatnik dance, what the hell was that? Fred Astaire was funny looking. Did anyone ever think he was good looking?
  3. :empty: Stage Door 1937 (a little Katharine Hepburn)
  4. :check: The King and I 1956 :3stars: For a 2 and a half hours, not much really happened.
  5. :check: Moulin Rouge 1952 :3stars: It was cool to actually see Toulouse-Lautrec paintings as part of the story.
  6. :check: Spellbound 1945 :4stars: Gregory Peck looked really young. Pretty good story.

    New for this year.
  7. :check: Fiddler On The Roof 1971 :4stars: Parts of this was funnier than I thought it would be.
  8. :check: Peyton Place 1957 :2stars: One of the bad things about watching movies way after they were released is that you don't have the same context as the original audiences. I have heard that this was one of the most scandalous movies ever, or that was it's reputation, but compared to movies now over 50 years later, it was very tame overall.
  9. :empty: Hello, Dolly! 1969 (a Streisand...)
  10. :empty: Funny Girl 1968 (...double feature...Oh joy)
  11. :empty: Zorba the Greek 1964 (a lot of Anthony Quinn)
  12. :empty: Sayonara 1957 (Finish off with some Brando)

  11. :check: Zorba the Greek 1964 :3stars: Like most of these movies, it was nothing like I expected. Anthony Quinn was very bombastic.
