  1. I'm participating in this too (with the knowledge that I most likely will not finish, but hey...a girl can try). You've got some good movies. I've seen Coming to America at least 10 times, and it still makes me giggle. I watched City of God last film challenge (she had one previously), and I thought it was fantastic!!!

  2. How sad it is that I haven't seen most of these movies. Clearly, I live under a rock. I have heard about them but have never seen them. Sad, right?

  3. Great picks! I don't think I'll get through my list either...but it will be fun trying. :-)

  4. Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my favorites. I liked Prefontaine but I liked the Without Limits version better. So many good movies to watch.

  5. hey! thanks for the shout out. so happy you're playing along. make sure you join the facebook group. :]

  6. I love Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid! Batman and Days of Thunder are good ones, too!!

  7. Coming to America is a classic!!! Lots of great movies on your list! Enjoy :)

  8. Great choices! You have a few on here that I've never seen before. Reading through all these posts is making me add a lot more to my to-watch list. Haha! Fun fact: I was an extra in the movie Prefontaine!
