106 from 1980 to 2008 counted from my own LJ post; *counts rest* plus another 163, making 269 altogether. I watched a lot of black and white films on rainy afternoons as a child. ;-)

There are some films in there that I'm quite surprised that you haven't seen, like Ben Hur, the Ten Commandments, the Robe, Gone with the Wind - Christmas classics that have been shown to death.

And newer ones too, like Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind.

It actually surprised me how many of these I'd seen and how many are a lot older than I expected ...

That was my thought - some very surprising omissions. Perhaps after the Shakespeareathon, nwhyte should obtain a portable dvd player and work his way through some of the Classic Film lists in similar fashion. ;)

I'm a visual illiterate: I've only seen 29. Only one in the past decade.

114, I think. Quite possibly a few more of the b/w ones on quiet BBC weekends.
If you were to start a film-watching project, I wouldn't pick that list. There's a lot of dross.

I've seen 96 - I thought it might be interesting to split it by decade (for films made during or after the decade in which I was born):

1927-1949 21
1950-1959 10
1960-1969 23
1970-1979 17
1980-1989 10
1990-1999 10
2000-2008 5

Wonder what it was about the '60s... :-)
Feb. 27th, 2009 10:27 am (UTC)
I bet you have seen more.

Hmm, apparently not. I just did it and clocked up 57.
Feb. 27th, 2009 10:28 am (UTC)
88 but only about ten of those before 1960. I think 1994 is the only year I've seen all the films.
Feb. 27th, 2009 10:31 am (UTC)
I made it a round hundred but I'm reasonably sure I've seen more of the early ones than I counted.
Feb. 27th, 2009 10:41 am (UTC)
Working backwards I got to 56 in 1991 before I got bored. I guess my total would be about 150. I've seen one this week (The Maltese Falcon).

It's an excellent list to work one's way through. Many of them can be had for Very Cheap on DVD.

168-ish, although there are several B&W ones that I'm not sure about (watched a lot late night during adolescence). Peaks during the early/mid-1990s, which is when I was a student and had time to see films.

79, with peaks in the 1940s (which I think is because those were the films my Nan wanted to watch when I was little) and the 1990s, when I had the time to be a cinema geek. I haven't seen any of the ones from the past three years.
Feb. 27th, 2009 02:07 pm (UTC)
I think I've seen 216, though my count and my memory may well be off.
Feb. 27th, 2009 02:17 pm (UTC)
80 for me, though a bunch of those are already in my queue to watch.
Feb. 27th, 2009 04:58 pm (UTC)
Well, feature film for best picture Oscar - not for any Oscar.

ooh good, a new to-do list after the Top-100.
Feb. 27th, 2009 05:49 pm (UTC)
I've only seen 74, although that's just through skimming the list...I'm sure that there will be more if I read it in greater detail. There are some fantastic films in there which really should have won (particularly Witness and Dead Poets Society).
