100 Movies in 2011

Scott has created a 100 Movies to Watch in 2011 list and wants me to do the same. Ok, I’ll bite. I’d love to be a little more careful in my movie choices, but mostly I’m interested in having the list as a counterbalance to Scott’s list so we don’t end up watching whatever he wants all the time. My life is mostly centered around competition and getting exactly what I want, so this works really well for me.

I’m switching it up a little. I’ve noticed lately that I only have vague recollections of important movies I watched once 5-10 years ago, so 50 of my films to watch in 2011 will be rewatches and 50 will be new films.
