Two Fifty Dot Org

That's how many of the movies on the IMDB Top 250 list I've seen. I guess that's an OK percentage; there are a few gaps I'm not proud of (Bridge on the River Kwai, On the Waterfront), but there are a number I couldn't possibly care less about (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and oddly enough, I think I have a copy of that around here somwhere). I guess what it comes down to is that there are an awful lot of good movies out there, and the number grows every year. I, however, am too busy watching and writing about b-movie crap to see all of them. (And let's face it, the list is impossibly skewed towards films made in the last three decades.)

Visit to track your own performance on the Top 250. It's one of those whiz-bang Web 2.0 type sites; once you've signed up, all you have to do is click a film's title to cross it off the list. No submit buttons or nothin'.

Ew. 91/250. That's embarrassing.

(I used to have a much higher score on the Bottom 100, too, before it turned away from MST3K fare and became "blockbuster dud of the week" territory.)
