Junior, I got your back on this (not sure if you want or need me there, but there it is).
I think it is perfectly legitimate to only watch the films that you are genuinely interested in. That's precisely what I did with the top 100s from 2008 and 2009 - I made an effort to watch the films that had interested me anyway, but at no point did I have the intention to watch the complete list. I have caught up with a lot of great stuff, so that now, there are only 12 films on this year's list that I haven't seen. Out of those, I'll likely only watch three or four before we do this again, because I simply can't see myself falling in love with the others. I'm not saying they are bad films or that it's impossible that I would enjoy them, but with so many other films out there that I am dying to see, some of these simply don't have much of a chance, no matter how many filmspotters tell me I should see them.
That said, Junior, I really think you would like TGTBATU, OUATITW and Dr. Strangelove. One word: MILKSHAKE!
