This Year For Sure!

My Watchlist mocks me. It is huge, and grows every week, thanks to reading other people's lists on Letterboxd. I have a shelf devoted to Priority Movies. It has fattened itself up to a second shelf, then an overflow box.

Cinemonster posted a list of 100 movies he will absolutely watch this year. Others are bravely following suit. How could I do any less?

(Best of all, cloning Cinemonster's list gave me a jump on making this one - our lists overlapped by 13 movies at least.)
