Well as they say in the cartoons : “That’s all folks!”
It’s been a long year and i thought i’d try and do a last post to recap and maybe wrap it all up with some stats on the directors or writers.
Right lets look at the Directors first.
Tied at the top with 8 films each is Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick
next we have Charlie Chaplin with 6 films under his belt to feature on the list.
Spielberg and Scorsese take third place with 5 a piece.
Tarantino has 4
And the Coen brothers and Peter Jackson have 3 each also.
Another thing,Stephen king had a few films on the list and they are all pretty descent so i thought i’d give him a mention,he has a writing credit for 4 films i think.I may be wrong but it seemed like he had more.
Aiden mentioned to me there on Facebook about recommending a few films in the final re-cap so here goes,but i’m sure most people have seen these.
12 Angry Men , everyone should watch this one.Got me thinking at the end:Is the guy in white an Angel?
City of God,great film.There’s a good documentary called City of God -10 years later.It’s worth a look too.
Requiem for a dream,it’s a fucked up film but the camera work is pretty good.
That’s just from the top 100, i think i’ve done other recaps every 50 or so films though out the list so if you want to see them then have a search on the blog.
That concludes the blog,i think i’m going to start up another project but i need a bit of time to get my shit together with downloads but i’ll have one more post after this one in the coming weeks with a link to the URL.I’m thinking either it’s going to be “Every banned film in Europe” or “800 eighties movies”.Either way thanks for taking time out and reading my drunken ramblings.Yo.
It’s been a long old slog.It’s taken over nine months to get to the final 50 and it looks like there could be a light at the of this year long tunnel.Thank fuck.Well like with the other recaps i’ll just mention a few films that stood out from the rubbish in the last 10 weeks.Lets see what we have then.
Oldboy – A Korean film that has garnered a cult status for being a bit violent and somewhat dark.Spike Lee has a remake coming out soon that might be interesting.
L.A. Confidential-A from a few years back that i missed when it was doing the rounds.Crowe and Pierce work well together.
The Prestige-A magical film.Get it?Magical.There’s magicians in it,that’s the joke.I like this film so much that i may buy the DVD one day just to see what kind of extras they have.
There was way too many stickers to list here.I mean there were an awful lot of ‘love them or hate them’ films and unfortunately i didn’t like a lot of them.
I wanted to do a recap every 50 films so they didn’t get on top of me too much.But if you know me then you’ll know I’ve been travelling around Asia the last few months and the internet has been pretty sparse in places and other times i just wanted to get drunk on the beach and never got round to recap them.But I’m settled now into my job and house so here goes.
I’ll avoid some of the more obvious ones like The Big Lebowski,Sin City etc. etc.
It’s been over two months now since i started this blog and I’ve reached film 200.A fifth way through the list.I thought I’d do a little recap on some of the high lights so far and repost the links for the torrent files if you fancy downloading the films.
Initially when I began i might land back form the pub or from a session and put on a film and them do a sloppy few comments on it.I think this was a bad idea.There was a film that i watched from the list on T.V. one night and i sat through it again and didn’t remember lots of bits because i was fairly steamed up the first time.I didn’t do it justice,even Micheal Sweeney said it to me when i was going to the post office one day.So I’m setting a limit,a six beer max, any-more than that and i don’t watch a film.
Here’s three or four good films from the list so far that if you haven’t seen then maybe give them a whack.
IP Man ~ Kung-Fu semi-biographical of the man who trained Bruce Lee.
man it took me ages to make that header banner picture thing, Jesus. Anyways I’m going to watch the top 250 films as rated by viewers and critics on IMDB.com.I’ve gotten a list of the films as of November 29th 2012.I’ll try and be as honest as i can.I know there’s some ‘classics’ in there and some ones that aren’t there but should be. I’m not claiming to be some expert film reviewer,this is coming from the guy who likes Gremlins 2 and Hot Tub Time Machine,but ill be say it like it is.The ones I’ve seen I’m going to watch again and sequels of parts of a trilogy I’ll watch just the film that’s rated.So every single film on the list no skipping.Like Harry Potter , i haven’t seen all the films but that Deathly Hallows film Part 2 is on it.I may get a bit lost in that one but fuck it.Emma Watson phworrrr. I’ll pop in the imdb votes and other shite too.I got all these off torrents so I’m going to post a link i made to all 250 films and a folder structure so if you want to do this at home it’ll be a piece of piss and i just saved you about 3 hours worth of searching so buy me a pint,or six.
Well hope ye enjoy the blog and here’s the list of the 250 films.
