Woody Allen Project

After watching Woody Allen's latest movie, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, I decided I wanted to watch all of the movies he directed in chronological order. There's like 46 of them and I've already seen them all. I'm hoping to sort of plot out his themes and style. I want to find out why I keep watching his movies despite the fact that they've been accused of being formulaic and repetitious. I also want to point out which ones I think are worth viewing and which ones can be skipped. Maybe there will be other lessons learned along the way.
For those of you watching at home, here is the list in reverse chronological order:

2010 You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger
