1000 Films

A purely personal, strictly chronological rundown of 1000 beloved movies.

Nothing under 60 mins, nothing by dodgy characters. Includes a handful of clangers I just have a giant soft spot for.

I'm sure there's important stuff I've forgotten. It'll be revised and updated, anyway, as I watch more good things.
