So there you have it – my 99 classic films for the year (although if someone wants to add one more so that it’s an even hundred, my OCD would thank you! ;)).  Obviously this will take me awhile and I’ll be mixing it all in with my regular stuff but I think it’s going to be fun.  The only problem I’ve run into so far is that a few of these aren’t on streaming so I’ll have to hunt them down in other ways so I’m starting with the easiest available first.  Should have the first one up this week. 🙂

Thanks again for all the suggestions guys!  You ALL ROCK!  Oh and if you made a suggestion and it’s not on the list, it’s only cause I’ve already seen it.
