THE LIST - rev.3

Outstanding Input! (again, and again)

As the funding/technical owner of a Netflix account, any WAGs as to approximate percentage of THE LISTs might be found there?

Will be very much surprised if I haven’t duplicated titles whilst compiling/semi-categorizing LIST (sorry in advance) 😉 may eventually sort alphabetically, or by genre, etc.

OUTSTANDING (already seen) LIST
Catch Me if You Can
A Few Good Men
Apollo 13
The Hunt for Red October
Saving Private Ryan
Meet the Parents

VERY GOOD (already seen) LIST
Sling Blade
Oh Brother Where Art Thou
Office Space (amusing, was expecting too much after all the hype here)
Forest Gump
Bull Durham
Fight Club
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Remember the Titans
Sponge Bob
most any Clint Eastwood
most any James Bond (though I’ve not seen the last half dozen-ish – Skyfall !, re-watch Casino Royale & Goldfinger)
Perfect Storm (saw most of it, I think)
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Okie-doke (already seen) LIST

NOT SO MUCH, or other, LIST
Won’t watch Silence of the Lambs (don’t wanna even ponder such depravity)

The Hangover (think there was more than one? 😉
