Happy One Year Anniversary to Us!

Hello, the internet!

Today marks our one year anniversary for this project. Yay!

One year and 120 movies. It may take us some time to reach 1000… But we’re still going strong with no intentions of quitting – we’ve invested way too much time and money in this to give up now! Besides, The Great Edgar Wright himself has promised us a signed Baby Driver poster when we reach #1000. That in itself is motivation enough to keep going (although, to be honest, we think we might deserve a parade when the day arrives).

As we celebrate with alcoholic goodness and perhaps a film or two, we will introduce you to our film buddy – our lovely doggo Dewin who enjoys watching films with us, especially when there are animals on screen. Bask in his gloriousness, you magnificent bastards! We love you all!

Favourites From #51 to #100

We’ve reached 100, and so it’s tradition to do a summary of old and new favourites so far (we’ve done it once before, hence the use of the word “tradition”). So pour yourself your beverage of choice, kick back, and enjoy going through our old posts.

Old favourites we’ve enjoyed rewatching:

New favourites we’ll definitely rewatch in the future:

Films, old and new, which left us mentally scarred for life and in desperate need of pictures of puppies:

Again, thank you all for joining us in this adventure and for reading our rambles on classic films which countless other people have written about more profoundly and eloquently than we could ever dream of doing. We’re having a blast!

We’ll leave you with an artist’s rendition of our physical and mental state 100 films in. Who’s who is up for debate…

Favourites from First 50 Films

We’re now 50 films into Edgar Wright’s amazing Top 1000 list, which means we’re almost done. Because of this, we thought we’d do a little summary post, listing our old and new favourites from the first 50 films. Here goes:

Old favourites we’ve enjoyed re-watching:

Amazing new favourites we will enjoy re-watching (in about 5 years’ time when we’ve got through the list):

Now comes the time when we shall shamelessly beg: we’re having a blast doing this, but some of the films are hard to come by. Our local library has a lot, we own quite a lot ourselves, and we’ve managed to get some used in charity shops and bought even more new. However, because we are not of limitless funds we have an Amazon Wish List for anyone with a bit of extra money to spare who wants to make two Norwegian sisters very happy. Or, if you have any of the films and want to get rid of them/lend them out, please contact us at 1000filmsblog@gmail.com. We’re very happy to pay for shipping.

Thank you all for following this adventure! Here’s to the next 50!
