If you’re like me, then you have a neverending list of movies that have been recommended to you and you just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Here are the first ten movies on this list that I plan to watch before September.
9. A Clockwork Orange
From what I’m told, it’s as disturbing as it is thought-provoking. Apparently, it’s about Alec DeLarge (Malcolm McDowell) and his violent, demented Brooklyn gang. Everything I’ve seen looks really… Messed up.
8. Fight Club
I’ve avoided looking up this movie. I want to be completely surprised when I watch it.
This is a documentary about the Orcas in Sea World. It sounds really sad and depressing… This is gonna take me a while to watch… Supposedly, it’s really sad and is strong enough to make people boycott Sea World.
This film just seems disturbing. I don’t know how I’m gonna get through it. Although, it’s supposed to be many actors’ first movie.. So maybe it’s worth giving it a shot.
5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
I haven’t been told a lot about this film, but I just know that Jack Nicholson goes to this insane asylum. It’s supposed to be really interesting. I would love to watch it.
4. Dog Day Afternoon
Seeing as I love Al Pacino, it was inevitable that this film would be recommended to me. I hear it’s really amazing and that I would absolutely love it.
3. Reservoir Dogs
This is Quentin Tarantino’s first movie and I’m very disappointed in myself that I haven’t seen it yet… But anyway, it’s about a heist that goes wrong and basically, you don’t know who’s telling the truth. It’s kinda like a whodunnit, I guess. Can’t wait to see this one finally.
2. Funny Games
I can’t believe I haven’t seen it… I missed my chance while it was on Netflix. I don’t even know which one to watch at this point — 1997 or 2007. I’m fine with either one. I’ve been so excited to see this because it’s pretty much what I’ve always feared. I would hate to be tortured by my own neighbors who are seemingly friendly at first…
1. American Movie
I just heard about this documentary a few weeks ago and it is very prominent on my to-watch list. I actually tried earlier today but since my computer was freezing up (or rather, overheating…) I wasn’t able to. So at least I tried. I think American Movie is supposed to inspire filmmakers like myself… Hopefully I can watch it very soon.
