IMDb’s Top 250 Movies (2019 Update)

I consider myself a movie buff but after taking a quiz on Facebook I realized I have a lot of catching up to do.   I have only watched 78 out of the 250 movies.  I couldn’t believe it was that low, so now I’m on a mission to watch the rest of them.  I plan to start at the bottom and work my way up until I’ve seen all of these.  I won’t have to worry about #1 as it’s my favorite movie and I’ve seen it so many times I can almost quote every line. lol

How many have you seen? Take the quiz here!
