That is an extremely long list!!! I haven't even seen a good portion of those. Coming from you though, I am sure they are all excellent, so I'll watch for them.

Wow, that's incredible. Yeah, I've seen about, oh, maybe a 1/4, but that might be a liberal number. You've inspired me. By the way, please be patient while waiting for my film list, as to equal to this, it might take a few months, lol!

Good list.

For the record I counted 108 films on the list. I have seen 75 of them, leaving 33 unseen. Several of those were already on my short list of movies I want to watch. A few I have never heard of, but thanks to IMDB I may strike some interest in them. And a few I had no desire to see, but now that they are getting high praise from a rather good list maker, I think I may rethink them.

If I can find an old desert island list of mine I'll post it here.

eucharisto said...

Wow, ok. I've changed my mind. I've seen 66 of those films, leaving 42 to be seen. I've got some work to do on my film fanatic condition, But not as much as my original take on this list made me think.

There is an old one and that is the one he's talking about.
