It's been one month since I've started this blog and thus it's a perfect moment to check on how my list fares against the top 250 of IMDB at this moment. I'll only be comparing the movies I've seen/reviewed because of the obvious reasons.
First, new movies in the top 250:
- The Truman Show (#249)
- Les quatre cents coups (#243)
Secondly, movies I've seen as listed on February 5, 2010:
- Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (#234)
- Tonari no Totoro (#239)
- Anatomy of a Murder (#241)
- Monsters, Inc. (#242)
- Toy Story 2 (#244)
- His Girl Friday (#245)
- Brazil (#246)
- Arsenic and Old Lace (#247)
- Mou Gaan Dou (#248)
- The Day the Earth Stood Still (#250)
Third, my list as on February 5, 2010:
- Brazil (1985)
- Mou Gaan Dou (2002)
- The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
- Casino Royale (2006)
- Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
- Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)
- Tonari no Totoro (1988)
- Monsters, Inc (2001)
- Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
- Blood Diamond (2006)
- His Girl Friday (1940)
- Toy Story 2 (1999)
Casino Royal fell out of the Top 250, which I regret. Unlike Blood Diamond, which shouldn't have been on the Top 250 to begin with.
My top 3 also ranks pretty low of the 12 I've seen so far, but I guess that's because of they aren't that well known with the mainstream crowd.
The only positive link I can see in the two lists is the order of the three animation movies I've seen so far.
In other news, I've been unable to watch some movies for the past couple of days, but I will continue with my viewings later this week, so keep tuned and interested!
