IMDb 250 Update

0

We've arrived at the 23rd day of another even month, so it's time to take another check at my progress through the IMDb Top 250.

 
When I last posted about this matter in August, I chose to refine my task by prioritising everything in the Top 100, taking everything else as it came. In that time the total has crept up to 115, which indicates to me that the decision was a good one. You will see reviews of To Kill A Mockingbird, Monsters, Inc. and Metropolis all on this blog very soon, and I will also soon be adding Amadeus to this list.

Here, then, is where my list stands in October 2013. In addition to my reviews and episodes of The Movie Hour podcast, I've also linked to my WhatCulture! articles where appropriate. I'm currently working on another article, about the career of John Hurt, so keep a look out for that.
