THIS post, is nothing to do with running. Unless The Running Man is on the list. Or Blade Runner. Or Forrest Gump!
I’ve recently started another blog too. (Two blogs?! That’s right! As if I’m not busy enough as it is!)
It’s about me trying to watch the Internet Movie Databases top 250 films, within a year:
(Copied and Pasted the first couple of paragraphs. Too lazy to type it twice. I did press Italics though!)
“I am a HUGE movie fan. I used to sit and watch two or three or sometimes four films in a row without getting bored, or fidgety, or falling asleep. (Unless I’ve been up all night watching films.) I currently own roughly 450 store bought DVD/Blu-Rays, and on the odd occasion have found myself buying the same DVD twice. (Always obscure ones like ‘Highlander 5′, ‘Exit Wounds’, and for some reason, ‘How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.’)
That being said, there’s LOADS of movies I haven’t seen. I bet there’s literally TENS of films, maybe even HUNDREDS out there that’s never been seen by these eyes. (My eyes, the ones in my head.)”

If you want to have a look, and read my reviews about the films, feel free to follow or add my other Movie-based Twitter.
EDIT: Both Blade Runner AND Forrest Gump are there! Running Man isn’t. Travesty.
EDIT: Neither is Marathon Man.
Have you seen “Prefontaine” or “Without Limits” (they’re running movies, but not in top 250). My favorite though remains “The Silence of the Lambs”
Think I saw ‘Without Limits’ years ago. Never heard of the other, is it any good?
‘The Silence of The Lambs” is 23 on the top 250 list (It’s not a running movie though) and “Prefontaine” is excellent, see if you can get hold of it some time
That is an awesome list. I can’t imagine watching five movies a week. That is a hell of a time commitment!
Easily do-able! (I hope…)
Sounds like fun.
A noble project! 🙂
My heart stopped at #1: The Shawshank Redemption. LOVE this movie. I would watch it 250 times.
It’s a great film, looking forward to watching it again!
That’s an incredible list btw… Though there are a few I’d take exception to – Star Trek Into Darkness is definitely top 50
Possibly top 20!
True enough, that movie was amazing feast for the eyes.
Running Man is awesome, no doubt about that.
Five films a week, wow. My attention span would not allow it. Looking forward to your reviews though! Number #15 gets my vote for best film of all time.
*Looks for 15… looks for 15…*
You think I’m funny? Funny how, like a clown…?
