I Can’t Stop The Aging Process

Life was good before I had to tie my own shoe!
 
Yea, yea, yea…. I haven’t updated this blog with the movies I watched in July. I’ll get to it….I promise!!
 
Saturday is my birthday. Last night, I began thinking about all of the movies I’ve seen in my lifetime and immediately needed to take a nap. I’ve seen a lot. I’ve seen so many that I’m sure that I’ve forgotten about 75% of them. That’s why aging is such a b!tch — first, your tits start heading south and then your memory goes.
 
After my nap was over, I decided to list 100 films….10 films at a time. These aren’t the best films or even my favorites. These are the films I thought of once I decided upon a topic.
 
Here are my first 5 lists!
