2021 Movie Watch List

For 2020, I wanted to finally watch all of AFI’s 100 years, 100 movies list. I didn’t finish my goal, so I’m continuing on in 2021.

I also want to just track my film consumption in general. Compared to my reading list, I definitely plow through the movies, so I’m curious about how many I see in a year…

Numbered films are from the AFI list, bolded movies have been my favorites this year.
