300 movies to see once in a lifetime

Hello everybody!

I have a little confession for you, or maybe two. First of all I have to say that in these days I am a bit lazy and the consequence is that I’m not really focusing to finish my posts about Tallinn and Helsinki. I have a good reason and that depend on my second confession: my free time is dedicated to plan my next trip. Yes, at the end of October I’ll do another trip, my first car trip outside Italy in a really really cold place. In the next days I’ll give you more detail about my destination. For now let me say that I’ll do at least 2 or 3 things from my “101 things to do once in a lifetime” list, and I am really excited about that. Speaking of that, I’m sorry, but for this week there is another to-do list, obviously related to the previous one. I have collected from the magic world of internet the list of 300 movies to see once in a lifetime. This are movies with a high rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so that’s why they are on my top 300 and the green ones are those I have already seen. If you have any suggestion about add or remove any movie from the list feel free to tell me your opinion.

  1. Ciao Jacopous,
    Grazie per la lista che è un buon promemoria di film da vedere.
    Ti consiglio Apocalypse Now di Coppola, Trainspotting ( anche se è molto crudo), The wizard of Oz, Shining, The gold rush, Solaris ( la versione recente con George Clooney), Shindler List, Rain man.
    Ho iniziato dal fondo per sceglierne solo alcuni.
    Buona visione Emilia
