Can you sit on your butt for a week straight?

There is simply not enough time. Not enough to do what, you say? Everything. No matter how hard to you try you just can't do everything. But dag-nabbit I'm gonna try. And as a first step I plan to spend a week (or however long it takes) and watch all the greatest movies and those that you just "need to see". I've starting compiling a list of movies that I will begin to collect or will "netflix" or "blockbuster-netflix-knockoff" when the time comes. If you have any movies that you think I should add, please throw them up. And of course anyone is welcome to join since it'll probably be over winter or summer.

Note: I've seen 17 of the films on this list in their entirety. I also currently own the DVD of 4 of those mentioned. I think the list of "Andy's Must See Films" would be more educational, but that's just me...

*Pulp Fiction and more importantly *Reservoir Dogs. lol *The Warriors. *Boondock Saints? (you might like it, it kinda fits into those random dark violent movies). I'll keep trying to think of movies that we haven't seen or that I have and you haven't. *Little Miss Sunshine? You've seen *Caddy Shack right? *Vacation (any of em)? *Mallrats for sure. *Silence of the Lambs. *Black Hawk Down. *Saving Private Ryan. *Enemy at the Gates. *Fast Times At Ridgemont High. yeah thats all i can think of atm.

87% of the movies Jimmy suggested are either: 90's action movies, war movies, somehow involving quentin tarantino, clint eastwood, or chevy chase, feature a candy bar in the pool scene, or ending credits.
