AFI Top 100

I have a bit of a head start on this goal, since in the summer of 2003 (?) I tried to watch all the movies on all of AFI’s lists.  I didn’t finish any of the lists, but I did see a LOT of really good movies.  Now several years later it’s time for me to tie up this loose end and at least finish the 100 Years 100 Movies list.
