Can I do it? Doubtful. But I've set myself 68 DVD/BDs and my booked ticket of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spyto watch by the time my dad gets home from Spain early in the morning of the 23rd September: they are all the DVDs I own (including free ones from newspapers) which I haven't seen. The list is below and once I've seen them I'll put a rating and a short review!
EDIT:I have now added 5 films (the 5 different cuts of Blade Runner) to the list as I am now planning to do an entire day on Blade Runneron Sunday.
SECOND EDIT: I've now changed this challenge to be "Before University" so I have a better chance of actually completing any substantial proportion of this list! I will add any other new films I see before uni now and see how high I can make the list!
The 39 Steps (1935)
Blade Runner (US Theatrical Cut)- 8/10; the voice-over and lack of unicorn sequence just... urgh. And a happy ending? Really? Why? Stupid studio. THAT WASN'T BLADE RUNNER I JUST WATCHED. IT WAS THE FUCKING SHINING.
Blade Runner (International Theatrical Cut) - 8/10; same comments as the US Theatrical Cut with some more gritty violence...
Blade Runner (Director's Cut)- 10/10; much better! Not quite got the completeness you expect once you're familiar with the Final Cut but still a superb film.
Blade Runner (Workprint) - 8/10; weird stock music for the final act and some unfortunate choice of voice over after Batty's death... at least it has the proper ending.
Blade Runner (Final Cut) - 10/10; the perfect version of an already brilliant Director's Cut.
The Big Sleep
Casino Royale (1967)- 6/10; funny at first but gets dull and just goes on for too long.
The Constant Gardener
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
La Dolce Vita
Donnie Brasco(seen but don't remember)- 9/10; a lovely post-prohibition gangster flick with a few good FBI twists to the convention.
Don't Look Now
Eraserhead- I can't give this a rating. It was a brilliant film but I have no idea why. Seriously, what the fuck?
Escape To Athena
Family Plot- 6/10; badly acted, much too long-winded and complicated for what it is. Oh dear, Alfred.
Flags Of Our Fathers / Letters From Iwo Jima
The Flowers Of St Francis
Gone With The Wind
The Great Escape
Heat & Dust
Heathers- 8/10; a very 80s look at an interesting sociological concept, but still feels like little more than your average teen flick.
The History Boys- 8/10; another great play adaptation, if missing the exact charm of the original.
The King Of Comedy- 9/10; a brilliant dark comedy bringing out a side in Scorsese I never knew existed!
Kiss Of The Spider Woman
The Last Waltz
Let Him Have It
The Lucky Ones- 7/10; does the plot that it says on the tin: nothing more, nothing less.
The Man Who Knew Too Much
My Left Foot
New York, New York
Righteous Kill - 4/10; rubbish: pure, unadulterated rubbish.
Rope - 9/10; a brilliant adaptation of what, I'm sure, is a brilliant play.
Scream (Seen but part of the set)- 8/10; good reinvention of the teen horror film, nice and predictable in a funny way.
Shadow Of A Doubt
The Sky Is Falling
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy- 9/10; brilliantly designed and brilliantly performed if a bit too confusing for some people.
The Trouble With Harry- 8/10; not quite what I've come to expect from Hitchcock but still a good romp.
True Grit (1969)
Twin Peaks (TV show)
The Usual Suspects- 10/10; outstanding crime film, what else can I say?
A Very Long Engagement
West Side Story
Now let's see how I get on!
