100 Films Before You Die

A flatlay photo of a black letter board that has100 films to see before you die on it

Hello! It's been a little while since I last posted here, I've been quite sick and then my mental health took a bit of a decline. So, I've been focusing on health and making sure I take care of myself.

My lovely friend Katie (Lifewithktkinnes) put out a new blog post during the week, 100 films before you die, and on Twitter she tagged me wondering how many of them I would have seen... hence this post! I thought it would be fun to do plus I can see how many I actually have seen.

Out of 100 movies, I've seen 93 of them. To be honest, I'm quite impressed that I've seen that many on the list, watching movies really is a passion of mine, hence why I'm going into that industry. There are loads of great titles on this list, after seeing The Butterfly effect among other great titles I've decided I need to have a movie night soon to watch some classics.

Now it's over to you, how many films have you seen from the list?

  6. Wow 93 is really impressive. I don't think I've seen half of these movies.


  7. I've seen 79, though I admit there was a few where i was in doubt. might have seen them but only know their danish titles (older movies often got their names changed when released in denmark for some reason) so I didn't count them :P

  8. I'm ashamed to say that I've only seen two of these films! 🙈
