Minor modifications to Batman's post from a few years ago:

New Year's Movie Resolution (2018)

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 . . . . . . . . . . 2015
2016 . . . . . . . . . . 2017

Anywho, 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]

I failed my resolutions spectacularly in 2017, but I'll still reserve a space to fail this year.
