IMDb Top 250 Update

0

Welcome to another update about my progress through the IMDb Top 250.

As you might expect from both the choice and pace of my reviews, I haven't made much progress. My total has been upped to 112, thanks to Sunset Boulevard and The Grand Budapest Hotel, but it's fair to assume that things may slip back down as the summer blockbuster season takes its course. I am therefore laying down an ultimatum to myself, and a promise to you: if I have not significantly improved on this number by September, I will retire these updates, much like I did with the BFI Top 100.

In the meantime, here's my progress as it stands, with all the usual links to my reviews, podcasts and WhatCulture! articles. Thanks for your patience.
