52 in 52

This is inspired by a thread at The Backstage. The idea is to pick 52 movies you haven't seen and watch them throughout the year. A few tweaks to the system for my own purposes: Yeah, I have more than 52 here. Some depend on availability issues, etc., and those that I don't get to this year might get rolled over into next year. Also, a few of these I've seen, but it's been awhile, so I just wanted a new look.
