IMDb Top 250 Update

0

When in posted about the BFI Top 100 back in January, I said that I would be shifting my IMDb Top 250 Updates from once every three months to once every other month. Every even month will chronicle my progress through IMDb's highest rate films (a list that changes all the time), and every odd month will do the same for the BFI Top 100 that was published in 1999.

Despite my best efforts, since my last update in November 2012,the number of films on the list that I've seen is still 112. In my defence, several of the films that I reviewed (such as Skyfall) have dropped out of the list, and I have invested in a few new films on the list, so that when we return to this in April I should have made better progress.

So without any further ado, here's the rundown of what I've seen complete with links to reviews and podcasts where appropriate. See the original post for the colour key, and be sure to sign up to http://www.250films.net/ so you can keep track of your own progress.
