List-wise, I reviewed Blackmail, The Shining, North By Northwest, Top Gun, Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht, Gimme Shelter, Hamlet, The Magnificent Seven, Superman Returns, Casino Royale and Songs From The Second Floor.
That’s 6 from 1001, 6 from the Empire Top 500, 4 from the Empire 5-Star 500 and 2 from the Total Film Top 100. I’d hoped to cross off more from 1001, seeing as that’s the most I still have to go through, but hey ho.
As for my Film-Makers, I crossed off Kate Winslet’s Hamlet and Holy Smoke, Steve McQueen’s The Magnificent Seven and Hell Is For Heroes, Alfred Hitchcock’s The Manxman, Blackmail and North By Northwest, and George Clooney’s Red Surf. I’ve decided to hold fire on Clooney and the Coen brothers for now, so I’m not spinning too many plates simultaneously, but they’ll be the next people I go through once I’ve finished McQueen and Hitchcock.
Off the lists, I watched The Brothers Bloom and Looper, and saw Kiss Kiss Bang Bang for the episode of the Lambcast I appeared on.
And for my Top 100 films reviewed, Silver Lode, Mad Max, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Babel, Ring, Iron Man 2, Good Morning, Vietnam were knocked off by Casino Royale, The Magnificent Seven, The Brothers Bloom, The Shining, Looper, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and North By Northwest.
