Project 45, Part I

So in January 2016 I turn 45. Yes, 45. I may act like I'm 11 but I'm 45 so I've set myself a number of projects for 2016.  One of which is this film list. I've randomly picked one film from every year since 1971 to watch that I haven't seen.

Basically my criteria is:

- I've never seen it
- I think it is a surprise I didn't/haven't
- It's not part of an ongoing series (although there are a couple of exceptions)

There's not much horror or superhero stuff in there, but I'm planning to come to them later. It's pretty arbitrary.

I haven't put 2015 on the list yet as it isn't over yet.

Ideally I'm going to keep a look out for these being shown at cinemas, especially The Prince Charles or the BFI who regularly show older films

Here it is:

1971, A Clockwork Orange
1972, Solaris
1973, American Graffiti
1974, The Conversation
1975, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
1976, Taxi Driver
1977, Close Encounters of the Third Kind
1978, Grease
1979, Mad Max
1980, The Shining
1981, Escape From New York
1982, Fast Times At Ridgemont High
1983, The Outsiders
1984, Paris, Texas
1985, St Elmo's Fire
1986, Stand By Me
1987, Dirty Dancing

1989, Sex, Lies & Video Tape
1990, Goodfellas
1991, The Silence of The Lambs
1992, Basic Instinct
1993, Dazed & Confused
1994, The Lion King
1995, Toy Story
