About the Size...

I've mentioned this before, and I truly mean it guys. I'm working on trying to 'shrink' this monstrosity of a film list as best I can. It's gonna take some time. I know I've gone lately WAY overboard on the number of entries on this list. It will shrink in time as soon as I can figure out what to get rid of. The extra entries that I haven't added a star ranking to are movies I haven't seen yet but have acquired, albeit by download or bought, and am storing them some place, to watch one at a time. Or binge watch on a rainy day or something.

For now, I hope everyone appreciates the effort I put into this whole thing. Feel free to browse using the filter option, as I know there's no way anybody's computer could load the entire thing at once without crashing. Right now, I'm a bit busy in my personal life--job hunting--so it may take some time before I can review everything. But I will try to get as many up as I can quicker than the rate I was moving before. A BIG BIG BIG thanks to everyone who has supported me since this list has been up, or for any other reason. Thank you guys so much ;D

[READ BEFORE YOU READ] First off, my gratitude and appreciation toward everyone who continues to read and visit this page. I'm glad it still gets exposure to this day, I put a lot of hard work into it despite the fact I keep re-arranging it and changing it. I'm grateful to everyone's patience with my fickle decision making. -For those that are newbucket list - to top all bucket lists I might add. This is the longest lasting probably cause it's the first list I've managed to upload to Listal and is thus probably my most voted on. Done as a 'counter' to the now infamous "1001 Movies to See Before You Die..." list by Steven Jay Schneider, I originally started doing this out of frustration toward some of the choices I found on that list, so this was originally my own personal 'critique' on that list. But then I got a little side-tracked and ended up getting ambitious after I found another list circulating over the internet by Movie Maniac called "ANOTHER 1001 Movies to See Before You Die..." so I expanded the list to 2002. Wondering if anybody would even care, I decided further I wanted something that nobody else could seem to touch, at least for now? And so I encouraged myself to go to 3003 after discovering yet another list that's been published by TimeOut entitled "1000 Movies That Will Change Your Life..." I gotta admit, I love the sound of that.

Personally in my own life, I've been undergoing somewhat of a spiritual awakening you might say. As elements of my personal life sometimes have to take priority over my usual hobbies which include making lists on this site, I also happen when watching these films in my off time - almost to see embedded messages that seem to be directed toward me in the experience of watching them. I like to include those insights in most of my reviews. So this is a lot more that simply my movie diary, it's more like my personal journal, and the important life lessons I'm learning and going through that seem to coincide with the films that I'm choosing to sit through on the night in question.

The criteria for this list consists of critically acclaimed and cult favorite movies I've heard about, seen, or are just now discovering. I like to read a lot of other lists on this site for reference and most of the time I'm giddy when I'm actually able to find a good to great film that I've seen that most here actually haven't heard of, but there only seems to be a few of those on here. -Much like Schneider's criteria for his list, most of these are films that deserve to be called the GREATEST MOVIES EVER MADE while others are more like classic "B-movies" that just make great cinematic experiences, you just gotta see this film before you die! It seems like everywhere I go on this website I seem to keep coming in to yet more lists that provide me with yet more film titles that I've never heard of so I like to document all of them in my Reference lists for any of you whom have seen those. -So if nothing else what I'd like to suggest any of you who have a bucket list like I do, y'all can consider this your own reference source if you don't wanna read the reviews.

Yes, some of these I haven't seen yet but I'm getting to them and I've heard enough great things to keep them here until I can get around to them. -The sum of this list's entirety is made up of films that may scare you and make you cry as well as laugh, but hopefully not waste your time or insult your intelligence. Although I do include some self indulgent guilty pleasures but most of which because I'm obsessed with the concept are what I like to consider -and hopefully I'm right when you get around to seeing them- films that will change your life! Especially since they're continuing to alter my own life.

So if you like what you see and read don't forget to leave me a comment and vote (not necessarily in that order) and feel free to tell me if you agree or disagree. Or if you wanna turn me on to other movies you may want me to see. Tell me what you want me to review next, want me to watch, what you would like to see get included, petition what you would like to see excluded - even if I may disagree, you can still tell me why you hate the film. --And of course if you don't like what you see or disagree, hey, it's my personal philosophy that nobody becomes a listophile without a subconscious desire to piss people off! You're welcome!*raise middle finger*

I wanna stress I'm not a professional reviewer or critic so don't crucify me if you feel I 'got it wrong' or sound like a fucking idiot. Or if I go a little off topic with such things I like to discuss like occult symbolism and Illuminati references. Or if I tend to go off a little too long on the plot descriptions (I try to provide spoiler alerts whenever I feel I need to place one) This is usually just me trying to figure out the underlining meaning in my head. I try to focus most on what this film means to me so sorry I don't generally go into detail on filmmaking insider stuff like technical specs and production notes, and movie trivia and all that kind of stuff. Just simply what I took away from the experience - which is what I feel watching a movie should be like.

So in closing this is basically my life in film. Films I'm just now experiencing, some I've seen in childhood. Although my memory is a little fuzzy so currently I'm trying to find some of these titles so I can refresh my memories - which as you all can guess often turns out to be a bit of a let down. But overall I hope you enjoy reading -or just looking at- what I consider to be the GREATEST FILMS IN CINEMA HISTORY!!!...

Extraordinary! :)

This is great... I've read a few so far and something tells me I won't stop unless and until I read ALL!

I may never be able to rank this much but however, care to see mine?: www.listal.com/list/500-greatest-films-all-time
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Jul 11 7:18
I'm not so sure about this list...

I mean, it is a great concept and there is definitely some potential but it is such a shore to go through a list made of 3000 items... Usually, when I see your list, I check the 1st page and then I just give up. I think it would work better if you split it up.

For example, JayTrotter has made some fabulous lists called
'Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films'. Instead of making one big list like you, he made 10 of them which is much more user friendly.

check it out : www.listal.com/list/amazing-underrated-obscure-bizarre-films-johanlefourbe

I really wonder, out of the 15 people who voted, how many did actually check the whole list...

Another thing that annoys me is that it seems that you put some movies which you haven't actually seen. How do you know they are any good? Personally, I haven't seen 46% but since I never past the 1st page, I wouldn't know which movies I still have to watch...
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Jul 11 15:32
From the 15, I think I was the only one who saw the whole thing... I like it and I appreciate the hard-work put into this!

@Johan: I think you forgot to read the description box on the right... I hope it will clear up everything!
Posted: 6 years ago at Jul 20 4:09
wow....thank you for reminding me of them...I had seen "The Kid"......you funny and meaningful too
Posted: 5 years, 8 months ago at Nov 23 13:43

You've made a big mistake. You said that Billy Wilder dirested It Happened One Night. It was Frank Capra.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at May 23 22:31
its a really long list but cool notheless, i find it kinda sad that you put so much work to it and so many views but yet only a few people were not lazy enough to press the vote button.

Hey, thanks for the comment bermuda ;-D

I'm quickly gaining on 50%. Some are 'unwatched'--I either have the movie in my possession (but haven't watched yet), or they're upcoming releases that I'm making a mental note of...

Right now I'm currently working on trying to organize everything so it's not a total mess :-(((
