Holy shit, this is tedious beyond belief. I doubt I have the patience to make it through the whole thing. It takes 10 fucking seconds to load each check in the box for Christ's sake.

I'm too anal to not finish, and it sped up a bit the last few minutes.

Yeah, sometimes it just keeps spinning when I check off something, so I close the window and just reload the site again. Maybe they could do without the "fancy" graphics?

It was bugging me so I had to take a break.

I think I was only missing 1 in the Top 50, but then they started piling up. I'm missing like 17 after the first 150.

Yeah, final count was 170. There's a good dozen or so that are right at the top of the list to watch though, so that's good.

I just looked at the master list and did dashes on a piece of paper. It was hardly the most careful counting I've done, but I got around 260 after a quick read through.

I'm 20 years older than you and have been interested in movies since a very early age so the ugh stands. I guess I just wind up seeing a lot of movies multiple times, and obviously, I end up seeing a lot of films that are not in the top 1,000.

Oh well, it just gives me a list to use as I broaden my cinematic horizons, even now.

Totally. If it had a foreign title, there are chances I haven't seen it. A shit-ton I hadn't even heard of either.
