A Year’s Supply of Movie Recs
I believe I first heard about the book Leonard Maltin's 151 Best Movies You've Never Seen
from BoingBoing.com, and borrowed a copy from the library to check it out. I thought I’d read through the entries, flag the movies that sounded good, and add them to my Netflix queue. After I flagged 9 of the first 10,* I decided that I’d just add them ALL to my list. Maybe Maltin’s descriptions make them sound more compelling than I’ll find them, but I think they’ll be interesting, at the very least.
So as a service to my Readers, here’s the list of movies from the book. I’ve marked the ones I’ve seen in Bold (15 out of 151; so his title is 10% inaccurate). I’ve provided the release year and director, because some have similar names to other movies (e.g. The Maltese Falcon
, which is NOT the Bogart version). Apparently not all of them are available on DVD, but the ones that are will keep me busy for quite a while. (Yes, if I was REALLY nice, I'd make them all links to Netflix pages so we could all add them to our queues easily. I don't have that kind of time. Sorry.) Scroll to the bottom for downloadable versions of the list, though.( Leonard Maltin’s 151 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen - Behind this Cut…Collapse ) Current Mood: optimistic
