Obviously there are duplicates and I won't be watching any of the movies more than once, but other than that I will be watching them in this order. That's a total of 95 movies not including every war film ever. I'll probably skip over that one. As for season 2 episode 7, there were no film references. This threw me off so I'll check again sometime. 

If any of you see corrections to be made or know of a movie referenced in the homage-o-meter that I missed, please let me know and I'll take care of it. 

Let the great time-wasting project begin!

Next post: Terminator 2
