It baffles me some times, as a movie fan the amount of highly regarded movies I just haven’t seen. With the current buzz surrounding the Anthony Hopkins starring Hitchcock, I still have yet to view classics such as The Birds and Vertigo. Only the other night I noticed that the cult favorite 300 was on TV, so have recorded it for some future viewing, as have I the two previously mentioned movies. Will I actually get around to them? Who knows. Sometimes life gets in the way, work, personal stuff, you name it! Hell, even video game playing with the completion of such titles as Mass Effect 3 and DMC: Devil May Cry in my recent past.
Over the years I have been ticking off those movies from the ‘films I must see before I die’ list in my head, and finally got around to the likes of 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Godfather, Casablanca (erm, expect a review of this one soon, just out on Blu-ray) and Some Like It Hot. There are possibly many more if I was to put my mind to it, and trawling the likes of IMDB’s top 250 would be a good start. So apart from the aforementioned movies, what is out there, past, present, classics etc I still would like to see some day, hmm…
A quick list I think…
12 Angry Men
Cool Hand Luke
There Will Be Blood
The Wicker Man
… I could go on but for now I’ll stop there. You can expect some if not all of the above to get full reviews on this site in the months (years?) to come as I do intend on seeing them, eventually. For now back to blogging and watching stuff that’s probably not as good.
