“1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” Book

Movies have been, and still are a large part of our culture. Movies have affected people’s lives in vastly different ways. in my life, currently spanning 20 years, I have watched many different movies, from all kinds of different genres, but I have not even come close to watching even half of the movies from the book “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” by Steven Jay Schneider. This book features movies from since the beginning of the 20th century, when movies were just beginning to be made, to movies that have just come out in the past few years. “1001 Movies” compiles a great list of movies that, as the title states, you must see before you die. I have made it my task, well not task, because that makes it sound not fun, but rather my goal/dream (yeah that works a little better) to see every movie within this book and I’m going to write about each and everyone one I see. I’m going to write a new post every week featuring a movie from the book. I don’t necessarily plan on going in any order, but rather just watching any movie that I happen to open the book to for that week. I have already seen about 200 of the movies from the book, but I plan on going back and seeing every movie again so it will be fresh on my mind when I write about it for that week. This is going to take a while ( It’s 1001 movies!), but I hope you will join me as we go through every single movie in this book, even the horror movies, but those might take a while for me to get to. There’s going to be movies you’ve probably never heard of and classics that you’ve watched hundreds of times, but ether way each and every single one of these movies are in this book for a reason. It’s going to be a fun and long adventure that I can’t wait to get started. Enjoy!


This Blog Thing is Going to be Fun.

Hi! My name is Davis Steen. I am a college student at NDSU in Fargo, North Dakota (Yep, like the movie). I was born in Fargo and have live my life in Fargo for the first half and Moorhead, Minnesota, for the second half, two towns tat are only separated by a river and a state line. I am currently twenty years old, but I will probably keep getting older as this blog goes on so that will not be the case in the future. I am both a movie enthusiast and a Comedy lover. I love to watch movies and sometimes make one or two with my friends for Youtube. I plan on critiquing movies I watch and going through the book “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die,” watching and writing about every movie in that book. I also enjoy doing comedy with my improv group, “To Be Determined,” which I am currently the president of, and plan on trying to do a few more things with comedy, standup and writing,  as soon as I build up the courage. I will be writing about those experiences in this blog, as well. I believe I can create two different blogs, so I might end up separating the two topics into two different blogs, but don’t worry I’ll let you know when that happens. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I hope to enjoy writing it. So, sit back relax and be ready for a thrill ride of awesomeness! In blog form.
