I'm Spartacus! I'm the king of the world! I am Mrs Nesbitt!

Now that I have finished the AFI Top 100 there are many other projects I could take on, but I've decided to tackle the 10th anniversary version of the list, which came out in 2007. The revised list removed 23 of the films and replaced them with 23 different ones.

After deciding on a project, the next step is to determine how much progress I've already made. I'm not quite sure whether I've seen Cabaret,12 Angry Men or Swing Time all the way through, so I will err on the side of caution and rewatch them. I know, however, that I have not seen Blade Runner all the way through, because I have fallen asleep both times I tried to watch it. In that case, I will err on the side of not watching Blade Runner again and count that one as seen, because it played in a room that I was occupying at the time. It looks like by that definition, I have already seen 13 of the new movies added to the list.

So starting out, my progress on this list is already:

90/100

You should definitely watch "The Last Picture Show." It is one of my personal favorites.

Also, good luck with Intolerance. 3+ hours of D. W. Griffith is a more of a chore than a film.
