Eric's Movies Page
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 am close to having watched
all the movies that are easily available for home viewing:
97.5% of the list now; 98.7% by the time all the 2016 movies
come out on DVD in the next few months.
The list is a Google Docs spreadsheet that you can
view by clicking on "The List" above. If you'd
like to sort the list by any of the categories, you
should be able to File...Make a Copy to make your
own copy of the spreadsheet, on which you will have
Every time I modify the list, I run a program that regenerates
the counts of movies I've seen in each category. Click on
