So life's gotten a little crazy. There are no fewer than five projects on my plate right now, little things to do and take care of. Last night I got home at 11, spent an hour answering email, then laid down on my bed to watch Robot Chicken before bed. Robot Chicken is fifteen minutes long. I did not make it more than halfway through before I was sound asleep.
And now, a request. I just skimmed through the AFI Top 100 list for the first time (we're all about strange lulls here at Unnamed Hit Sitcom) and found that the movies I haven't seen from that list isn't as big as I thought; also, I feel like I should try and catch up with those I've missed. Thus -- if you were to pick three of the following as Essential Films to See, which three would it be? Your choices are:
8.ON THE WATERFRONT (1954) 13.BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, THE (1957) 21.GRAPES OF WRATH, THE (1940) 24.RAGING BULL (1980) 30.TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948) 33.HIGH NOON (1952) 37.BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES, THE (1946) 52.FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953) 54.ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT (1930) 57.THIRD MAN, THE (1949) 64.CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND (1977) 67.MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, THE (1962) 69.SHANE (1953) 70.FRENCH CONNECTION, THE (1971) 72.BEN-HUR (1959) 73.WUTHERING HEIGHTS (1939) 75.DANCES WITH WOLVES (1990) 79.DEER HUNTER, THE (1978) 80.WILD BUNCH, THE (1969) 82.GIANT (1956) 86.MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY (1935) 88.EASY RIDER (1969) 89.PATTON (1970) 91.MY FAIR LADY (1964) 92.PLACE IN THE SUN, A (1951) 96.SEARCHERS, THE (1956)
