Nice list...I'm in the process of doing my 100. Why so little posting though?

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the comment.

As in all things, it's tough to find time to blog about all the good movies I see, but I do what I can. Hopefully, I'll start blogging once a week at least.

Final Destination is the midst of all the highly regarded films seems weird. But, I'm not judging. I think Final Destination is cinema not meant to be taken all that seriously.
