The IMDB Top 250 List Challenge
So it’s been a goal of mine for a while to watch as many movies on the IMDB Top 250 list as possible. Like a lot of my long-term goals, I tend to let them sit there, and hope that they’ll achieve themselves. Not anymore! I’m going to start deliberately targeting movies on the top 250 list, and see if I can watch them all.
I should quickly mention to anyone who happens to stumble across this post, that I have actually seen a LOT of movies. There’s a heap of films on this list that I really should have seen by now, and it’s slightly embarrassing to me as a film fan not to have already seen them. I suppose the good part of not having seen these movies, is that I get to experience them all for the first time, though some of these films I’ve already seen large chunks of, or have seen too long ago to really remember everything. Ok done.
Any good goal requires a time limit. If it were earlier in the year I’d suggest the end of the year, but that’s actually not far away at all! It’s only about 10 weeks away, which is scary. That means it’s about 14 weeks away from my birthday on the 27th of January, which is scarier still. I’m going to make that the target date for this goal, which means I’ve got about 100 days to watch 140 movies. It hardly seems doable, but I’m going to give it a go.
Here’s the list for the rest of the week.
- Tuesday : Casino
- Wednesday : Goodfellas
- Thursday : Heat
- Friday : Rain Man
- Saturday : Apocalypse Now
- Sunday : Barry Lyndon
And a few extras in case I decide to get ahead of myself!
- Cool Hand Luke
- A Fistful of Dollars
- For a Few Dollars More
