In 2012 the BFI (British Film Institute) polled 846 critics, programmers, academics and distributors to update their list of what, in the experts opinion, are the greatest Movies of all time (to date).
In 2014 I decided to watch them.
4 films in I discovered they were artistic pieces that the common man would generally detest. Hence this “fun list”
I will now be interspersing the BFI “critics” choices with the equivalent IMDB “popular opinion” picks. Hopefully this will stop me from slitting my own throat. However as the public have notoriously bad taste I cannot guarantee this.
One thing to note. The IMDB list is organic and therefore subject to change. Because of the nature of people new films often make oddly high appearences. I am working form the list as it was on 29th/06/14 1900 GMT.
Number 50- The Dark Knight Rises
