250 in 365 Challenge

Categories: 250 in 365 Challenge, General dribble.

Several friends are doing a challenge which involves watching the top 250 films on IMDB.com in 2009

I’m a few days behind, but I will catch up easily. 馃槈 聽Especially as I’ve got the best part of 2/5th of them on DVD or Bluray. 聽And it will give me a chance to kick start this blog again.

The list below is accurate as of 1st January 2009 – as I mark them off I will add little reviews. 聽It was tempting to do them in order of release or top 250 order – but life is too short. 馃榾

Who knows – I may end up with a new favorite film by the end of the year.
