Top 100 Movies

Since we moved here, we haven't been really using our cable at all.
It's included in our rent so we didn't get a choice of provider or channels or anything which is weird.
(I'm a control freak)
And we never called to add a dvr.
(I'm a lazy control freak)
So instead of watching cable, we've been re-watching our favorite tv shows like How I Met Your Mother and Fringe (WORST LAST SEASON EVER).
Since we finished both of those, we decided it would be fun to watch the list of AFI's Top 100 Movies.
We started last night (we're starting at 100 and working our way up to 1) and actually really enjoyed Yankee Doodle Dandy.
In case you ever want to do the same, I'll put the list below.
(And yes, I'm insane and went through the whole list and put whether or not we have to rent it, watch it on instant watch or can watch it for free on Amazon.  I like lists okay?)

  1. This is actually something I would really love to do. I wish more of these were on Netflix instant streaming. Almost none of these movies are from recent decades which is pretty interesting.
