About the Journey

The 1000 Movie Journey started on March 22, 2011, the brainchild of a bored casting assistant and self professed movie addict.  It grew by escalations.  I had decided to watch the top 1000 films of all time, and once I had resolved myself that, I thought, well, surely I might as well write reviews on all of them?

So here I am, running the gauntlet.  I'll come back every so often and add information, milestones on my journey.  For now I'll leave you with a little bit of background on my muse, "They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?"

Here's what TSPDT has to say for itself: 

This is, as you know by now, a consensus listing of the most critically-acclaimed films of all-time, based on as many lists as we have been able to collate over the years. It is as definitive a consensus list as you will probably find. Thanks to you, it is also a very well supported listing of films that we enjoy compiling each year, and - in the main - does represent truckloads of the best that cinema has to offer.

The January 2011 list of the 1,000 Greatest Films has primarily been compiled by using 2,138 individual critics' and filmmakers' personal lists/ballots of their favourite/best films.  

As per previous versions we have also factored in (although to a much lesser degree than the aforementioned individual ballots) over 1,300 magazine polls, film institute polls, individual polls from 'esteemed' critics or filmmakers and many other polls of interest."

For more information, check out They Shoot Pictures, Don't They.  It's a great site with a lots of movie goodies!
