Way back in May 2017 after a discussion with my nephew Andrew and his fiancé Danelle we commenced watching the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) Top 100 Movies. At the time they have temporarily move in with me while saving for their wedding and a future house. While they didn’t quite make it to the end after moving out I did and due to the unfortunate COVID-19 situation I watch the last 66 movies over five months.
So after starting with Yankee Doodle Dandy (ranked 100) and finishing with The Godfather Part II (ranked 13) on Friday 4 September 2020 this turned out to be highly enjoyable and exposed me to many great films I would never have experienced.
Overall the IMDb Top 100 listing was exceptionally strong which was what I was hoping for. Nineteen of the movies I rated 9.5 or 10 out of 10. Of these nineteen films I had previously only watched 8 of them including my only rated 10 /10 film the great Schindler’s List.
