AFI 100 list

This list has always kind of surprised me. Well, for one, I've never seen Citizen Kane, I've always wanted to see if but I never have. I guess that I kind of have a hard time believing that it's that great since it's black and white and I watched the first couple minutes in a class once and I wasn't too impressed. But I'm going to give it a shot and check it out.

Here's the list of the 100 Greatest Movies: (the ones that I've seen are highlighted in red)
