Summer goal

So the summer is almost upon us, and I've decided on my goal. It won't cost anything (which is good in my case), and it should give me some motivation for writing in my blog.

I'm going to try to view as many of the AFI (American Film Institue) Top 100 films as I can. I'm going to borrow them from the local library, so I won't have to buy/rent them.

I'm a movie geek, so I've seen many of them already. I'm going to concentrate on the ones I have not seen, starting from the bottom and working my way to the top.

My first feature is number 100: Ben Hur (1959). I've always considered The Ten Commandments as one of my guilty pleasures, so I'm looking forward to Charlton Heston in another sword and sandals epic. I've put a hold on the four disc re-release. If I'm true to my word, I'll share my thoughts on the film in a few days.
