Film Fest!

So guys, I have recently become a film freak! Whoop! I discovered that as I watched The Hobbit, Les Miserables, and the new Spider Man movie.

No, that was not the discovery, it was a slight realization, an awakening.

I really discovered it last night as I watched the last scene of The Fellowship of the Ring. I came in during the Uruk-hai fight, so I didn't watch the rest. The beauty of the cinematography was amazing. The way in which they caught the fight scenes were amazing and the death scene of Boromir was captured perfectly and of course the music!

I realize now that my whole childhood has led up to this just because of the amazing movies I've grown up with. Or maybe it's because my parents grew up in the 50's and 60's. Oh well.

But I have compiled a list of classic movies that I am to watch this year! I guess this is kind of a New Years resolution so I'll make a page for it then check them off throughout the year. Yay!
Warning: Most movies will be from the 40's, 50's, 60's, or have Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, or Audrey Hepburn in them.
Another Warning: This'll be a long list.
