Joshua,

I am working on my list for you and hope to have it completed shortly. I also intend to print off Damien's, Big Magilla's and Anonymous' lists and highlight all the films I haven't seen and include on my current list of "films to be seen" which must stand at about 1,500.

Looking over their lists brings back so many memories.......

I recall that on the old board Magilla at one point posted his top 250 films of all time, which I was using as a handy reference guide and checklist of movies I had not seen. Unfortunately I never printed a copy. It'd be great if an updated version could be posted at some time, also if some of the other members could post something along these lines. I'm particularly interested to see the favourites of Damien, Precious Doll and others of you with more wide-ranging or avant garde tastes and broad, far reaching knowledge of cinema history.

I'm working on my own list at the moment. Unfortunately, due to my age and relatively recent interest in older and world cinema, it skews very much towards the contemporary, but I'm hoping to have it satisfactorily post-worthy soon.
