Teague, Suzie says "I'm the one watching you through the window." Make what you will of this.

Me and Holly actually watched this one a few days ago and for some reason I thought you'd already seen it. We've actually had our own little thing of finding what to watch recently. We went and bought that 1001 Movies to see Before You Die book that I've always seen and never bothered picking up. We'll just flick through it and find one we want to watch. Last one was Mr. Smith Goes To Washington which I highly recommend, I absolutely loved it. Frank Capra & Jimmy Stewart together is the cinematic music to my ears.

A cool feature would be at the very bottom adding a formula to show how many minutes you've watched, too.

As in total.

Re: The IMDb Top 250 Checklist

It feels rather odd that 'Three Billboards' is on the list considering it only came out today in the UK, but another one down. And, might I say, a rather good movie too!

Re: The IMDb Top 250 Checklist

This is a cool thing. I'm going to join in.
Ain't gonna get through the list! But I wanna watch more new things instead of just retreating to my safe, comfortable favorites.

EDIT: Okay, 31% is about what I thought. Aaand I'm the only person who hasn't seen WALL·E.

If it's not about musicals, I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

I can't say I've heard of any of them. I also seem to have an Akira Kurosawa sized hole - not having heard of that guy at all.
