100 Films in 2011 – Top Secret and Penelope

by Jamie Sanford on January 3, 2011

So, part of my blogging resolutions for 2011 is to write more content.  I’ve decided to put more content of a personal nature here, since I think it all ties in to what I post here.

I’ve watched 2 movies in the last 2 days, and it occurred to me that with the advent of Netflix instant watch, I could easily watch 100 films in 2011.

It is so on. I’m going to try it out.  I mean, if Jenny can put out the effort to come up with 365 outfits, I should definitely be able to get my act together to watch 100 movies.  Naturally, I will document all of the movies I watch here on the blog and will link to information on watching or purchasing.

#1: Top Secret (available on Netflix to watch instantly)

Top Secret

Top Secret is only available from Amazon Sellers.

Top Secret was a movie that my husband wanted to watch – how is it that I have no memory of this movie even existing?  Starring a young Val Kilmer, it’s a very Naked Gun-esque comedy – not surprising since it had the same creative team.  It was pretty good. I would recommend watching on Netflix and not buying the DVD.

#2: Penelope (available on Netflix to watch instantly)


Penelope is available for $11.99 from Amazon.

I caught Penelope during the very beginning earlier tonight, and I had been interested when I heard about it but never got around to seeing it.  I really liked it! I am a big fan of Christina Ricci and she was great and I enjoy fairy tale-type stories and this fit the bill. I think the story has a good message and would definitely buy the DVD for a young girl.

98 movies to go.
