59. A Man for All Seasons is the lastest one i haven't seen.

Five!

1972 The Godfather (well, most of it)
1976 Rocky
1997 Titanic
2001 A Beautiful Mind
2003 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

I have 39, 40, 43, 45, 49, 50, 53, 54, 59, 60, 61, 63, 65, 66, 68, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 77, 78, 81, 82, 84, 87, 90, 91, 92, 94, 95, 98, 02, and 03 on DVD.

My brother has 57, 62 and 00, and I also have easy access to 41, 58, 64 and 85 and have seen all of them.

In fact the only ones on the list I've never or not yet seen are 28, 29, 31, 33, 38, 46, 96, 04 and 05.

So my score is 88.46%

57/78: 73%, fewer than I thought.

Of the second half (1967-2005), there are 12 I have NOT seen:

In the Heat of the Night
Oliver!
The Godfather, Part II
Gandhi
Terms of Endearment
Out of Africa
Platoon
The Last Emperor
Braveheart
Titanic
Gladiator
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Of the first half (1928-1966), there are only 15 that I HAVE seen:

It Happened One Night
You Can't Take It With You
Casablanca
The Lost Weekend
The Best Years Of Our Lives
Gentleman's Agreement
All About Eve
An American in Paris
From Here to Eternity
On the Waterfront
The Bridge on the River Kwai
The Apartment
West Side Story
Lawrence of Arabia
My Fair Lady

Total, that makes 42 that I have seen, or 53.8%.

68/78=87%

Missing:

1929 The Broadway Melody
1931 Cimarron
1933 Cavalcade
1936 The Great Ziegfeld
1938 You Can't Take It with You
1944 Going My Way
1947 Gentleman's Agreement
1952 The Greatest Show on Earth
1963 Tom Jones
1966 A Man for All Seasons

Lucky for me, Classicflix has Cavalcade and the rest are available via Netflix.

Man, I have some catching up to do. My mom and I have been working on this list for two years and we've barely made a dent. The problem is that I go to school away from home, so...
