YESNYOU – Top 250 – What’s your score?

Top-250-IMDB.jpg~originalHi everyone,

It’s nearly December and I have great news! I am only 12 steps away from achieving one of my biggest goals! I am only 12 movies away from finishing the IMDb Top 250 movie list!

That’s right. I have watched 238 out of 250 of the movies on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) Top 250 list (click on the picture on the left to go directly to the page). I have seen films from every genre of cinema: comedies, thrillers, epics, westerns, cartoons, horror movies, suspense flicks, disaster movies, musicals, romantic movies and documentaries. I’ve explored world cinema; seen films from Argentina, India, Sweden, Russia, New Zealand, Brazil, France, Iran and many more countries and cultures. I’ve travelled to the very edges of the universe and to the dark heart of the soul! It’s been a wonderful ride! And I invite you to join me!

I listen to a film podcast called Film Fandango, and on this podcast they play a game using the IMDb Top 250. It is very simple.

Your IMDb score is the number of films you have seen on the list before the first film that you have not seen. For example:

IMDb game

So, you’ve seen the Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II and The Dark Knight. But you haven’t seen 12 Angry Men.

Your IMDb score would be 4. Now, imagine you watch 12 Angry Men, and you’ve already seen Schindler’s List, Pulp Fiction and a few others.

IMDb game 2

Now your IMDb score is 9! Isn’t that great!

You can even login to the IMDb website and rate the movies that to keep a record of your progress. This is important, because the list changes almost every day. New films that receive more than 25,000 votes appear, so other films have to go! Yesterday, my IMDb score was 194, but today, because Sunrise (1927) just received its 25,000th vote, my score is only 117!

David here in the office hasn’t seen Fight Club, so his IMDb score is 9!

Kate has never seen Schindler’s List (because she says the book was excellent, so why see the film?) so her IMDb score is 5!

What’s your IMDb score? Let us know at the bottom of this page, write on our facebook wall (YES ‘N’ You Spain), or send us a message on twitter (@YESNYOU_es).

Until next time!


UPDATE! Since writing this blog I have been a busy boy, and have increased my score to 245. Until the next change…
