Jake’s Tech Tools – Movies for Your Bucket List

Le_Voyage_dans_la-lune 2Welcome back, readers! Recently on Reddit, a user posted that she/he has completed the official list of “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” (HERE). This got me wondering: how many movies do we own at Bellevue University that are on this massive list? Thankfully, there is a free Wikia list with every single film that has ever made it onto the list (as new films come out, older films are supplanted). With over a weeks worth of  cross-referencing our collection, with the help of Mary Barrett, below is the list of all the films  and the format that Bellevue University owns on the “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” List.
