* = I own.

With the help of IMBD these are not my favorite movies from these years, not all the movies I own from these years in fact since I own over 300 DVDs (yes I know I have a problem).  I own 104 on this list of 165.  There are no movies on this list I haven't already seen.  And there are a few movies I'll disqualify because I've seen them pretty recently like in the last 3ish months.  I could have added all the Harry Potter movies but I may watch those all before the end of February so we'll see. Either way these are all movies I really like for some weird reason or another.

So this all starts March 1st.  Now I probably wont be able to watch one movie a day so I'll probably end up binging a bit on the weekends.  Also for the rest of February I'm going to tackle some of these I know I can't make in March.  So I'll try to post at least once a week maybe twice a week in March with my progress and what years I cover.  This should be fun! Anyone who knows me knows how obsessive I can be when I decide I want to do something so while it'll be fun it will also be really really obnoxious.
