As is tradition, as the prophecy foretold, it is now time for you to lipsync… No, wait… It is now time to list our favourites from #251-300. Behold. Our faves:
Now, our more faithful readers may have noticed that it has taken us much longer to get from #251 to #300 than usual. There are many reasons for this, among them work, other obligations, and the pandemic actually leading to more work for us rather than less. So in order to keep it a bit fresh and interesting we’ve decided to mix things up a little bit.
Locally where we live, there are several events coming up featuring films from the list. When these events happen, we’re going to “skip in line” a bit and cover those films early. And we’re starting tomorrow with #755 Pulp Fiction, which we recently had the great pleasure of revisiting on the big screen, followed by a themed meal at the amazing Bula Neobistro in Trondheim. Review and report from that wonderful night to follow shortly!
Next time: #755 Pulp Fiction (1994)
Once again we’ve gone through 50 films, so it’s time for a recap of old and new favourites. There may be a lot to go through this time, so we recommend you wrap up warm, bring a drink and a snack and make yourself comfortable before you delve into our old posts. Happy reading!
Use the above list as your to do-list this weekend, and have a brilliant time!
As is tradition, once we go through 50 films, we do a recap of our favourites – new and old. So, here we go again. Make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, and dive into our old(ish) posts (warning: there are a lot this time!).
By the way, we admit that these 50 have taken us a bit longer than the first two sets of 50, and we can only apologize and make silly excuses such as sometimes we have to do actual life stuff. Which we do. But we’ll be better – we promise. Or at least not worse…
Stay tuned for Quatermass 2: Enemy From Space coming up sooner than you’d think!
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…
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re very happy to pay for shipping.
Thank you all for following this adventure! Here’s to the next 50!
