Re: How many of IMDb's Top 250 have you seen?

I've seen exactly 200, which is 80% of the list. Of the movies released before 2000 (185), I've seen 170, or 92%. Of the 65 released from 2000-present (), I've seen 30, or 46%.

I've seen 201 of them. Some of them I've regretted seeing, of course--pretty much all the recent ones.

Handy checklist here: http://www.imdb250.net/

My count: 216

Gran Torino at 93?
Changeling at 234?

How many kids does Clint Eastwood have?

91 and there are more I have seen enough of but didn't count.
