Yesterday I told you how my summer is going to be all about the R&R mainly because I can’t escape to some tropical deserted island as my bank account might as well have $0 in it, as I have multiple plans coming up I need to save for. So I made my reading List yesterday.
Today’s list is going to be all about movies. I am not counting any movies that are to be released this summer, these are movies already released & I have been told I need to watch, but never have quite watched. Yes there are some classics on here, that a lot of my friends find disturbing that I have not seen.
Although, when I was sending out messages to friends & families, it was pretty difficult coming up with a list. I clearly have seen a lot of movies. So after multiple texts, emails and conversations, I made the following list 🙂
Seriously I URGE you to sit down, and make a list of 50 movies you have not seen, it is much harder than you think.
So my movie list, for those days I am too sunburned to lay out by the pool 🙂
1. The Beach
– I had the biggest crush on Leo as a teen, this movie has been on my list for years, and I have never sat down and actually watched it. I know it is considered the ultimate travel movie.
2. The Motorcycle Diaries (English Subtitled)
-Why I have never seen this movie is beyond me, I have watched to watch it but never gotten around to it
3. City of God (English Subtitled)
-I have been told I should watch this for years, but the fact that it makes Rio look bad, made me not want to watch it, as I want to go to Rio in 2016, I feel I should finally watch it.
4. Adventures In Babysitting
-I have a sick obsession with Thor, and the fact that a kid runs around dressed as Thor is reason enough for me to finally sit down and watch this movie.
5. A Good Year
-When I googled movies about travel this came up, I didn’t hear about it prior to making this list.
6. Thelma & Louise
-AGAIN another wow moment, I have not seen a movie that is considered classic and features a very young Brad Pitt.
7. Into the Wild
-I am planning on reading the book, so I figured I should watch the movie too. 🙂
8. Under the Tuscan Sun
-Again planning on reading the book, so therefore I should watch the movie. Plus there may be a trip to Tuscany in my very near future 😉
9. Little Miss Sunshine
-I have no clue why I have not seen this, even though I have wanted too. It is time, and I just saw a grown up Breslin in The Call, I should watch the movie that made her a star!
10. Office Space
-I know! Let’s move on.
-another one, that I am not sure why I have not watched. Just slipped through the cracks.
-Told it was a total geek movie, and a must watch, as I love all things geek, well count me in!
13. Battle Royale
-I joke the Hunger Games in a way changed my life (it did!) and when the rumors that it was a rip off of this movie went around I refused to watch it, but given I am such a fan of The Hunger Games, I feel like I owe to try and watch this film… at least once.
14. The Crow
-When Brandon Lee (who I was seriously going to be his very young bride someday) died during the making of this film, I refused to EVER watch it. Now that I have grown up and realized I was never going to be his woman, I decided it is time to sit down and FINALLY watch it. RIP Brandon Lee
15. The Big Lebowski
-I am sick of not getting the jokes. End of Story.
16. Being John Malkovich
-interesting concept, yet I have never watched it.
-The movie promises govt deception & Betrayal yep count me in 🙂
18. Revenge of the Nerds Triple Feature (Revenge of The Nerds, Revenge of the Nerds II, & Revenge of the Nerds III)
-How can you be a nerd and not have seen these movie? No clue, and in an effort to redeem my nerdy qualities, I will watch this movie. Promise.
-A friend said they are disowning me until I watch this movie sooo….
– I don’t want to have nightmares I told a friend (who shall remain nameless) so all I have to say if I watch and get nightmares? oh it is on. you have been warned 🙂
-another movie why I can’t really explain why I have never watched it.
22. Blade Runner: The Final Cut
-The same friend that disowned me for not seeing Hackers said the same for this, and told me not to text him again until I watch both…
23. Minority Report
-I have tried watching this multiple times, but seriously EVERY time I tried to watch it, something happens. I am turning my phone off when I watch this one.
24. Repo Man (1984)
-YOU have to watch the 80s version Jen, not the Jude Law one… But Jude Law is cute was my response, but I suppose I can always watch the Jude Law one too…
25. Pan’s Labyrinth
-fantasy worlds, a sadistic father? No wonder it got so much Oscar Cred, why I have not seen it though, is the real mystery.
26. Predator 2
-Saw the first one. Stopped there, apparently according to my friend. I am an idiot. I don’t want to be an idiot.
27. The Chronicles of Riddick

I must admit while I was typing this list I found myself laughing at the reasons I put these on my list. 🙂 I am glad it is a well rounded list and if I make it through them, I will have a MUCH harder time coming up with additional lists 🙂
What movies would be on your list?
