  1. I love reading your choices! There are obviously thousands of options, and it’s intriguing to see what you found most appealing. Your goal to see this many films is impressive, as well. Although it only requires one a week, there had to be times even one was hard to fit in! I might think of taking up a similar challenge, but I might have to start with half that number! 🙂

    • Thanks for writing. It took a lot of good time management, often watching two movies a night to make up for all the other days when I was too busy. But to learn more about film history (and watch a lot of entertaining stuff in the process), it’s definitely worth it!
