AFI’s Goal Update – Annie Hall


I watched Annie Hall. It was ok. I love Diane Keaton which was the real reason why I decided to put this movie on my list. I don’t find Woody Allen funny. He’s just not my kind of humor. However, I do get why it’s a classic and why it won many awards. I do like the fact that it’s a romantic comedy that portrays the main relationship a bit more realistically than other films in the same genre. All in all I will give it 3 stars, just like Netflix predicted.

On a minor note, I list 29 movies instead of the 28 needed to reach my goal, 50, because I want to have a fallback. Some of these movies are old (compared to me) and may be hard for me to find or watch. I don’t like a lot of racist language or subjects and some of the movies were made during the height of racial tensions. Hence, In the Heat of the Night did not make my list.
