movies I wanna see

One day while Russell was doing homework and productively learning, I decided to pretty much waste a couple hours and go through all of IMDB's top movies and pick out the ones that weren't rated R and looked interesting. I was pretty surprised at how most of them were kinda old. I don't know why. People have been making movies for almost 100 years. I've only been watching movies for 20. Of course there would be tons of great ones that were made before my time. Just over the past couple of years Russell and I have been getting into old movies and they seriously are good! The other day we watched Kind Hearts and Coronets.

The plot: "A distant poor relative of the Duke of D'Ascoyne plots to inherit the title by murdering the eight other heirs who stand ahead of him in the line of succession." It's kind of a subtle understated comedy that's totally out of control in the way that this guy doesn't feel the least bit bad about moving himself up the family line by murdering his relatives. And the best part is that all the relatives are played by Obi wan Kanobi. Also a plus, you can watch the whole thing on youtube.

Wow, I just watched that little clip you posted and now I want to watch the whole thing. I'm so glad that you went through all those movies - is there any chance I can get a copy of your list. You probably already posted it huh...what was the post called? Man, what would our family do without you to help us find good music and good movies.
