How many of the top 250 IMDB movies of all time have you seen? -fun game

I've divined two things from this list, 1. I need to see more of the classic staples (Citizen Cane, All Quiet on the Western Front, Sunset Blvd, Ben Hur, etc. And I really need to invest some time in watching the Charlie Chaplin movies if I'm going to call myself a movie buff) and 2. Recency skews a lots of the more modern movies into this list, because there's a lot of crap in here. The only Batman movie that should even sniff the top 250 is the Dark Knight.

 

I'm just fuggin' ecstatic that Avatar isn't on this list.

those are the ones that I picked up...that most have not seen.

 

I took a cinematography class in college and we watched many of them.....even the Chaplin movies.  They are classics.

Agreed there is crap on that list - Toy Story 3? That movie kept dragging on and on.... it could have been an hour shorter and no significant plot would have been left out.

I've never seen 2 seconds of any LOTR movie. Or Harry Potter (don't remember if its on the list).

The lack of comedy (besides MP) isn't cool either.

I hate that Shutter Island made the list.

 

And I wouldn't force the issue, because if fantasy isn't your thing, it's not your thing, so don't waste your time. But I think you owe it to yourself to see the LOTR movies. If for no other reason than the visual spectacle of it. What they achieved on film is like a throwback to the film epics of the 1930s where sets were as glorious works of art as large as cities, and there were literally thousands of extras, each meticulously detailed. Except you also get fantastic battles with monsters and dragons.

 

Harry Potter you can skip. They're really for the kids who loved the books. They're entertaining enough, but forgettable.

I got to about 27 out of that list that I've seen entirely

I was about to say "fug this" when I didn't spot Jurassic Park in there but I saw it around the 200s so yeah. Where's Titanic?

E: so after a 2nd read through I found some that I missed the first time so it's more like 32. Still low, but I'm not a big movie watcher so that's no surprise to me

    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
    • Taylor Moton is a big man. He's a very athletic 300lb+ tackle who moves around defenders like they're nothing. He appears to have a bright future in shoring up our tackle spot, and likely dominate in the NFL. However, an underrated aspect of Moton is just how intelligent he really is. When you think of Memorial Day weekend plans, you think of barbecues and hanging out with friends and family. However, Moton plans include a lot of study and filmwork. Just take a look: http://www.panthers.com/news/article-2/Taylor-Moton-trying-to-soak-in-new-studies/227630c4-675d-4393-a1ab-526b528c4425 Taylor Moton seems to be ready to soak in all the information he can muster to get ready to compete in Training Camp. An intelligent big guy with a bright future in the NFL.
