The Film List










This is where you really start to think I'm from my own planet, otherwise known as Planet Jodie.

I have a spreadsheet of films to watch - this consists of films suggested from various forms known as "best ever", or "films to see before you die". It also included best films that were banned, best silent films and the worst films, and of course films I have heard of and wish to see for whatever reason.

I was relatively young when this list started; perhaps 15 or 16. Not entirely sure. I thought it would be fun to list the films I'm still to see, and will edit and score them out as I see them. I've just got 280 left to see out of a list of 742 - sometimes this grows due to new releases I want to see:

1.The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974)
2. Duck Soup (1933)

Thank you for reading - especially those that read from 1 to 249! I was going to give descriptions of each films but thought that might be too much. Besides I will review some along the way. I hope you enjoyed looking at my film bucket list - how many of these have you seen? If you've seen any of these, what are your thoughts?
