IMDB Top 250 Movies I’ve seen

I was inspired to read through the entire IMDB Top 250 movies list and mark down which ones of them I’ve seen. The ones in bold are movies I’ve watched (it doesn’t indi­cate whether I liked them or not). The ones in ital­ics are ones I plan to watch.

It’s an inter­est­ing list although I think there are far too many recent releases on it for it to be consid­ered entirely cred­i­ble. It seems I’ve watched 131 of the 250 and I’m surprised by how many there are that I really don’t have any inter­est in watch­ing.
