They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? 1,000 Greatest Films

Thought this would be a fun little exercise for some of our resident film buffs.

This website has taken rankings from various lists by critics, directors, writers, etc. and made a comprehensive list of the 1,000 greatest films of all time.

TSPDT - The 1,000 Greatest Films

There's also a website where you can sign up and keep track of which ones you've seen:

They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? top movies - iCheckMovies.com

I'm in the process of doing this so I'll be back to share my current tally.

The TSPDT? main site is a nice resource as well.

I am going to eventually figure out how many of the top 1,000 I've seen and it's going to disappoint me.

I can't have seen more than 20 of the top 1000. Really. I'm awful.

I'm at 60/220 right now, and it's destroying my internet connection.

I've seen 39 of the top 200, and there were many named in that top 200 I'd never even heard of.

I'm not faring very well. All the foreign films, I mean, I have no chance. But, even if you removed those, which you obviously shouldn't, I'm still doing poorly. Maybe one day, I make it my mission to go film by film via netflix and see how far I get.
