I have a lot of catching up to do

Because I grew up in Dubai, and because evidently my parents weren’t really movie people… I haven’t seen a lot of movies. A lot. A lot of movies. A lot… ok I hope you get the picture. To prove this, I thought I would take the same challenge that xMikex has decided to take and try to cross of as many (if not all) of these movies that people have voted as the top 100 movies as published by the AFI (American Film Institute). I couldn’t find a similar list on the CFI (Canadian Film Institute) so I thought I’d just use this one because it’s pretty universal anyway.

Here is my current standing.
