Movie Bucket-List

Today, I have compiled a Bucket-List of popular and critically acclaimed movies that I need to watch at some point. If you know of some movies that are not on the list that you think I should watch, please comment and let me know. My goal is to eventually watch most of the movies on the list, even if some of them are not ones that I particularly want to watch, but rather feel the need to watch due to popularity or critical praise. Since I already know that I will watch some of the more recent films like The Lego Movie, I have not included movies from the last year. Lately, I have even started catching up on some highly regarded Asian films like Oldboy and The Host, so if there is an Asian film that I should watch, please let me know. My goal is to watch several of these movies before the end of the year. Also, of course, you cannot know if I have already seen a movie that you recommend, so just please leave some suggestions and I will reply to comment about whether or not I have seen the movie in question. I have also added a new page for the Bucket-List and as I watch more of the movies, I will use the "Strikethrough" feature to mark the ones that I have seen. So, without further ado, here is the list.

Reader Suggestions:


  1. Check out Whisper of the Heart. This film by Ghibli is severely overlooked nowadays.

    1. Already watched and reviewed the movie. And I agree, it is one of the best and a personal favorite of mine! Here is the link to my review if you are interested.


  2. Look for Speed, Rain Main and the Fast & Furious films. There are the ones you are looking forward to reviewing them.
