Watching movies has always been like a job for me. I love movies. I watch as many as I can, but somehow there have been many that still elude me. I try my best to keep up and catch up, but it’s hard when I’m the only one keeping myself accountable.
Now, thanks to the Internet (Thanks, Mr. Gore!), @campbelldropout, and @007hertzrumble I have other people that will keep me accountable for at least 12 films I really should have seen now. Although, seeing the lists of others, I don’t feel as bad. This site is like a great little support group.

* I watched Glengarry Glen Ross a couple days before this idea was born. I thought about counting it for January since I had never seen it before, but that felt like cheating. That’s why I’m adding Caddyshack.
** I feel like I’ve seen these movies before, but it was so long ago, I can’t remember if I did. I couldn’t tell you anything outside of the standard synopsis, or the pop culture references. Maybe I saw them as a kid, or I only saw clips in a film class. Either way, I need to dedicate time to these.
