Film Quest 2015: The Challenge Part II

For the SIXTH year in a row, I’m keeping track of all the movies I’ve watched for the first time. Just like last year, I’ll be attempting to ensure that at least 20% of the movies I see are 20+ years old.  I also have a list of films that I’m challenging myself to see, though in past years when I’ve done that, I’ve only made it through a portion of the list so if you see something on there that you can absolutely recommend, let me know!
