101 Movies To Watch Before You Die

I had somwthing written out and everything but It just didnt sound right. So instead I chose to write about movies, which i just love. I went to buy the Batman Begins dvd this weekend because it was on sale and it was a good movie compared to the Micheal keaton, George clooney and Val Kilmer batman movies which got worse by the movie. Oh and they got rid of the cheesy dialogue and the nipples on batmans body armor.
