    Yep course I have.
    I've also just gone and bought 6 of the 11 movies I've not seen at my local CEX!
    Now that is dedication to the cause that will not be retrieved through my lacklustre offering of a cup of tea. I may even have to break the bank of a pack of hobnobs.

    I'm only missing the following:


    4. Dr. Strangelove
    7. Singin' in the Rain
    3. Casablanca

    8. Paths of Glory
    3. Once Upon a Time in the West

    5. How to Train Your Dragon
    6. Mary and Max

    Somebody tell me why I should bother?
    Check out how to Train your dragon. It's actually quite a cool story. It''s not the best cartoon out there but it's pretty darn good.

    Seen 44, don't really watch that many movies tbh.

    44 but you don't watch many? That's a decent number!

    You voted in the accompanying polls as well?

    Imo, Full Metal Jacket should be in the Wartime section. Love that film, love Stanley Kubrick.

    Coffee please, black!
    They were only like £1 each and are movies I ought to have seen already.
    In fact I watched Casablanca tonight - wasn't that impressed really. Sure, it was good, but it's always been so hyped up as the best movie ever and it didn't live up to that for me. I voted for eternal sunshine in that round and I stick by it - it's a much better love story.

    I think Kubrick is the most represented director in the competition (just ahead of Nolan), although I think most will be knocked out early.

    FMJ, at #84 on the IMDb list, was always likely to be borderline.

    So often the problem when you watch a much-loved and hyped up (by everyone else) 'best movie ever' type film.

    No Woody Allen in the comedy section?



    On another note... does anyone else feel bad about not seeing many of these 'great' films?

    Yet i just can't bring myself to watch Schindler's list for some reason :s

    As prolific as Allen is, he hardly has anything on the IMDb 250 list. Annie Hall, which I like, is #170 and appears to be one of the highest rated.

    (Guessing everyone came in through popular discussions though)




    Django unchained OR Shchindlers list?

    What would you say your top 10 are? (all films)

    Personally? I'm a weird guy and am a giant Will Smith and love independence day even though it's stupid.

    Also love butterfly effect as well. Those are my top two personally probably. I know they're not 'good films' but I enjoy them.


    No idea on the test right now. You?

    I know you didn't ask me, but I'm awake so why not!
    I stuck to the IMDB top 250 only otherwise I'd be here all day

    The Lives Of Others
    Life Is Beautiful
    The Pianist
    Inglorious Basterds
    Downfall
    Back To The Future
    The Big Lebowski
    Into The Wild
    The Prestige
    There Will Be Blood

    Either because they were just such incredibly well made, moving, thoughtful, or beautiful films - or just brilliantly entertaining! And yes I do have a bit of a fascination with WWII - couldn't pick both The Pianist and Schindlers List though!
