Note: Top IMDb.com

20110528:
I have a goal to watch 250 movies that have at some time been on IMDb.com's Top 250 list. Though to qualify, the movie's appearance on the list should be relatively stable. So a movie should appear on the list perhaps a year after the movie was made. Thus if a movie has been around, and pops its head in at the bottom of the list will be alright, but if a movie shows up on the list that was just released, it easily has the potential to drop off the list, and so I can't count it. Using movies that show up at the bottom of the list, I can actually skip some movies that are higher up on the list, as long as new ones pop up. I still have a ways to go. In addition to the Top 250, I also plan to check off Top 50's for various genres. In particular, there's the action and animation genres, which I currently have below. I've seen 60% of the movies on both lists. I'll try to count how many movies I've seen on the Top 250 list.
