A movie meme

It appears that memes are a great way to fill space on this blog. So here’s another one which I got from here

This one is very similar to the Top 100 Books idea, but with movies. This list is from AFI’s list of top 100 movies. I’ve marked the ones I’ve watched in bold and for an extra touch, decided to add a star next to the ones I really liked.

So here we go…
