IMDb Top 250 - Revisited 2019

A little over 5 years ago, I thought I could make a dent in the IMDb.com top 250 film list; in October 2013 I had seen 188 of the 250 films and worked on making a dent in the list, including enjoying some great films along the way (like the 2010 film Incendies then 242 and now ranked 124).

But alas, for all that effort, instead of seeing 188 out of 250, as of today I've seen 184 of the 250.

In 2013 I talked about genre films having a little extra boost in the ratings, but in the past 5 years the current list seems to capture more contemporary world cinema that can put you behind the eight ball on this list. Not to mention, the list shifts all the time.

As of today here are the 66 films (26.4% of the list) that I have not seen...and we'll see if in 2019 I can make a deeper dent. For those interested the full list (always changing) can be found here.
