"1001 movies to see before you die" the title of a book I picked up there a couple of weeks ago. Since buying it
I have seen two of the listed movies that I hadn't seen before,
by virtue of them happening to be on telly. So I've decided as an ongoing project
that I will see them all.

Previously I was infamous for not having seen those films that everyone else had seen.
Alien, and The Crow being good examples ( both of which I have seen now).

Well I'm gonna those classic movies here as I see 'em, maybe I'll even say a little
something about em as I see fit. I'll also list off the ones I already seen until
I have all 1001 (or as close as I can get, some of the movies are REALLY ancient)

So without further ado the first two movies I have seen of the 1001.
1)West Side Story
2)Gone with the wind.

West Side story I can see how some people might like it. Micheal jackson ripped off
a huge number of shots and moves for his videos and some of the songs aint bad.
But the Musical just ain't a genre that does it for me. I ,somewhat controversially
I might add, cannot stand Moulin rouge, and would gladly take back those two hours of my life.

Gone with the wind is a movie I didn't think I would like at all. It being long and fully
of characters that you just plain can't like.. However I was pleasantly surprised. Its a
well crafted story and filmed very well indeed. And Rhett(?) Butler is 'the Man'!

right more as I see em'

(p.s I'm breaking my rule here and mailing from my work addy.. it seems like the only way
I'll ever update this site, I'll stick to doing it on breaks and after hours though. I'll
be good!)
