A meme, and you know I never do memes

Gini, who barely knows I read her LiveJournal, put me onto this. Apparently, these are the most 100 influential movies of the ’00s, according to the Telegraph.

The rule is: bold if you’ve seen it, italicize if you’ve heard of it but not seen it. (And let me know if you blog it!)

Of those I can remember and am sure I’m not inventing facts about, I have seen 17. I wonder if that means I am only 17% influenced by the ’00s.

No movie buff, me. Nor am I interested enough to count how many I’ve heard of, but if you count them do feel welcome to tell me in a comment.  🙂

It’s a pity, though, that there don’t exist two directions of italics to indicate which I have heard of and would like to see, and which I’ve heard of and it is entirely by my own choice that I have not seen.  😉  Ask me if you want to know.

Oh, and nothing can be deduced about my own taste from the films I have watched. It is rarely me that chooses.

    I’ve seen 25 of these movies and heard of many more. I just haven’t watched them for whatever reason. I really like watching movies though, 🙂 Hope all is well.

      I love watching reviews, eg Mark Kermode, but which films I actually see depends on what happens to come on the telly…
