The Metropolis Times
The Metropolis Times
There is no final revolution

For the past several years I've been attempting, at an inconsistent rate, to see all 1,000 films on the celebrated They Shoot Pictures Don't They compilation list. Since other bloggers have posted their countdowns up for all to see, here's mine.

I've got a very good shot at completion before the end of the decade. We'll see. Hopefully I'll be aided when newer films replace older ones.

You can view the list and keep track of your own progress at iCheckMovies.com Feel free to add me as a friend - just mention that you read my blog.
