Movies so great, that we’ve missed or forgotten them.
This month my viewing project is going to take me through the 17 movies I need to watch to have seen the entirety of Flickchart's Top 150.
Flickchart is a movie-ranking website that help users generate a list of their favorite movies by forcing the user to choose their favorite from random pairings of movies. It's free to join, and a fun way for list-obsessed data-junkies to feel like they are doing something while actually accomplishing nothing!
A couple of months ago, I finished my year-long project of ranking every movie I can recollect, generating a list of my favorite-to-least-favorite movies, from #1-3094. I rank every new movie after I watch it.
Here's what I'll be watching, and how they are currently ranked on Flickchart's global chart.
I've seen 6 of these previously (*), but only once each, and long, long ago, so I haven't ranked them on my own Flickchart. One of them I've seen parts of several times (**), as my kids love it, but I have not yet summoned the patience to endure it in its entirety.
A sort of diverse selection there, but heaviest on foreign and long movies, which I sometimes resist due to laziness. Also a couple of silents, including one that's only 45 minutes, so that will help balance out the 2.5+ hour selections.
You can search for them on CanIStream.it, but we like it when you click on our Amazon links:
I have reviews posted for all the movies on this blog, and live-tweeted most viewings here:
