“What??? You’ve never seen ________________ ?!?”

As much as we each consume movies like Easter candy, both of us still have some shamefully glaring omissions. Seriously, it’s embarrassing some of the movies we haven’t seen. Movies like mainstream flicks that play endlessly on basic cable. And critically acclaimed films that have been collecting dust on our respective Blu-Rays. Oh yeah, sure, we’ll “get around to them eventually” – but we never, ever do.

These are our individual War Crimes. Now we’re each manning up and atoning for them.

Our unseen movies are different. But for the sake of our honor and souls as film geeks, we each will answer for them. And you get to listen!

Our personal War Crimes lists on Letterboxd:
