Wow.... Only 54 out of 250. Of course, many of those listed I really have no desire to see. A few I just haven't gotten around to yet (Walk the Line, Blade Runner).

Others that I'm proud of seeing, The Philadelphia Story (love it!), Double Indemnity.

I fell asleep during Citizen Kane and didn't finish American Beauty because it was such an awful movie - do those two count?
