Popular movies I haven’t seen in the last 15 years

In the morning I stumbled upon Marco Arments post about movies he hasn’t seen. It’s just a list of popular movies in the years between 2000 and 2015 and he marked the ones he hasn’t seen. I think there are a lot of information about a person in this list.

I asked myself how my ratio would look like. Here it is. It’s pretty obvious that I had much more time to watch movies than Marco. Maybe that’s why I haven’t build Tumblr or Instapaper ;)

But I also discovered that there are still some “important” movies to watch.
