by WhatsUpWill
This is a list of all the films I have seen for the first time ever during the year 2011. Hopefully by the end of the year, I will have seen 200 films. That is my goal.

Hopefully I can finish the 1940 decade before 2012…

I’d also like to announce that one of my goals for 2011 is to see five movies per year for every year from 1950-2011. There are a ton of blind spots in this span of time.
