The List

I've been maintaining a list of movies I'd like to see. Rather than making the individual choices myself, I have combined numerous lists gleaned from the Internet: Ebert's Great Movies, 4-star movies, Ebertfest movies, and yearly top 10 movies, Oscar winners and nominees in the major categories, the AFI lists, the Criterion Collection, box office winners, 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, etc.

There is a column in which I mark off the movies when I've seen them. I have now watched all the movies that are easily available for home viewing: 98.8% of the list now; 99.3% by the time all the 2016 movies come out on DVD in the next few months.

The list is a Google Docs spreadsheet with the names of the 3900+ movies in each row, and the various sublists in each column. You can view the spreadsheet by clicking on "The List" above. You can sort the list by any of the sublists/categories, by hovering your mouse cursor over a column header until you see a little dropdown arrow, and clicking on that.

The Scoreboard

Every time I modify the list, I run a program that regenerates the counts of movies I've seen in each category. Click on the above link to see the latest tally, with a change-log entry for the latest modification to the list (which usually shows the name of the last movie I watched).
