Silence of the Lambs 1991

A while back I took a "quiz" on Facebook to determine how many of the top 250 movies of all time. I had actually seen. I scored 100 out of the 250 movies that were listed. If I was unsure about seeing a movie I didn't check it off so my score could possibly be much higher.

And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.

So here is #9 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:

I absolutely hated this movie.  I hate creepy scary why-did-you-make-that-movie movies.



Somehow it won five Oscars.
