I’ve cancelled my LoveFilm rent DVDs by post service – I felt I was constantly needing to watch movies when they came through rather than wanting to watch them. I may renew it in the future (maybe a portable DVD player to take in the taxi?). But for now my rate of watching movies has slowed up!
In the meantime I’ve got a handful of Top250 movies to watch on Netflix, a few old ones on Youtube, one at the cinema (“Her”), and a recently bought 2nd hand DVD of Platoon. 2 weeks ago
Danish film starring the bad guy from Casino Royale who is accused of child sex abuse in his town. Interesting enough film. 3 weeks ago
My first ever Bollywood movie, making it in at 140th in the top 250. Long (almost three hours), it started slowly at first – had the feel of an American road trip / romcom initially, but the story really progressed as it went on. Decent enough, but not blown away! 3 weeks ago
Okish old movie. Classic “I could’ve been a contender” speech. 3 weeks ago
Interesting arty looking movie 4 weeks ago
An oldie, but still enjoyed it. Political drama / comedy. 1 month ago
Japanese movie about a Ronin (Samurai without a master) who comes across a village with problems with the two local crime lords. I thought the story seemed somewhat familiar – checked and it was remade as “A Fistful of Dollars”! Enjoyed it!
Progress 175/250 seen 1 month ago
Older multi-Oscar winning movie. Okish, there was one bit where the main character was eating carrots and acting like Bugs Bunny – turns out Bugs Bunny’s mannerisms were partly based on the scene in this film! 1 month ago
Enjoyable film about the life of John Merrick, aka The Elephant Man. Was made in 1980, but felt more like a film from decades earlier. Anthony Hopkins was briliant, think he’s one of my favourite actors! 1 month ago
Felt it started slow but enjoyed it once it got going. Although I’d seen the Russian Roulette sequences parodied lots of times it was really tense to watch! 1 month ago
Enjoyed this modern MMA movie! 2 months ago
Enjoyed this old (1957) movie. Not sure if it was the updating to Blu Ray, but this film could almost have been filmed this year it looks so good. 2 months ago
The site I was using to check does not appear to have been updated for a while, seems out of date by a bit. Checked on another site – four films (Papillion, Beauty and the Beast, The Artist & District 9) have dropped off the list, and the new Hobbit movie has gone on. 2 months ago
1950 movie about a young woman named Eve who befriends a famous theatre actress. Really didn’t fancy this film at all. It’s sat in it’s DVD cover for a good few weeks now. Ended up putting it but doing other things and laving it running in the background. Meh! Maybe if I’d properly got into it would have enjoyed it more. 2 months ago
I am enjoying watching films on the list when I do, but I feel I am “having” to watch them rather than wanting to. I’ve recently also got a Netflix account, and to be honest a lot of the time I feel like watching a completely different movie. Recently I’ve (re)watched and enjoyed Speed, Three Amigos, Airplane!, Spaceballs, The Inbetweeners (every episode), The Hunger Games and today Unbreakable. I quite enjoy watching just what I feel like, rather than an old classic (All About Eve has been sitting in the house waiting to be watched for about 3 weeks now lol!). I will still work towards this goal, but I might slow down somewhat. Current total is 169/250. 3 months ago
Watched this last night with my sister. Was decent enough, though we guessed most of the twist pretty early on! 3 months ago
Wow! One of my favourite movies I’ve ever seen!
That’s all the top 50 watched – only 4 left in the top 100 now! 3 months ago
Fascinating film about the last days of Hitler 3 months ago
Another Japanese film, this time dealing with several different peoples differing recollections of the same incident. Not amazing… 3 months ago
Really touching film about a Stasi Agent in Cold War East Germany who becomes obsessed about a couple he is spying on… 3 months ago
Alfred Hitchcock has more movies in the Top 250 than any other director. Deservedly so. At first this film didn’t really grab me too much, was average at best. But the twist was fantastic – never saw it coming in a million years! 3 months ago
One of the top movies ever made according to the IMDB list. It seems a bit dated now but set the scene for the majority of action movies made today. 3 months ago
Interesting story about Mozarts life (And death).
Current totals: 161/250 (also 90 out of top 100) 4 months ago
Singing in the Rain was a classic musical, fairly enjoyed it!
Gravity is this years big new movie, to be honest I enjoyed it but thought the hype affected how much I liked it… 4 months ago
Very long film, epic and enjoyable though! 4 months ago
Pretty long movie (I watched the directors cut at 3:28), gave a good feeling of what it must’ve been like to be on a German U boat in WWII. 4 months ago
My third anime film in the top 250, probably enjoyed this one more than the others. Really good film! :) 5 months ago
Great WW1 Stanley Kubrick movie with Kirk Douglas. Brilliant battle and trench scenes for it’s time – also the court martial part was interesting too! 5 months ago
