Thank you, Edgar!

As regular readers probably know, we lost our dog a few weeks ago. Our Patron Saint Edgar Wright himself read this and contacted us expressing his condolences, which we greatly appreciated. However, he didn’t stop there. He decided to buy us our entire Amazon wishlist (at least everything which would ship to Norway)! And so, these have been trickling into our mailbox over the past couple of weeks:

Use

Fourteen new movies!!! Honestly, we are so thankful for this amazing present, and we definitely picked the right director to worship. Thank you so much again, Edgar! You rock!

Favourites #151 to #200

Once again we’ve gone through 50 films, so it’s time for a recap of old and new favourites. There may be a lot to go through this time, so we recommend you wrap up warm, bring a drink and a snack and make yourself comfortable before you delve into our old posts. Happy reading!

Use the above list as your to do-list this weekend, and have a brilliant time!

Favourites #101 to #150

As is tradition, once we go through 50 films, we do a recap of our favourites – new and old. So, here we go again. Make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, and dive into our old(ish) posts (warning: there are a lot this time!).

By the way, we admit that these 50 have taken us a bit longer than the first two sets of 50, and we can only apologize and make silly excuses such as sometimes we have to do actual life stuff. Which we do. But we’ll be better – we promise. Or at least not worse…

Stay tuned for Quatermass 2: Enemy From Space coming up sooner than you’d think!

Disclaimer

Hello the Internet!

We suspect that you are all waiting eagerly at home, refreshing your browsers and wondering if we’re going to update soon, or if we have perished from fatigue in our effort to get through 1000 films. So we are here to tell you that 1) we are very much still alive, and 2) we will update as soon as we can. We are currently having difficulty getting our hands on a film, because the library’s copy seems to have vanished. We are now in the process of ordering it from another library, but it will take a few days to get here.

We are very sorry about the delay, and we promise to post more often for a couple of weeks once we’re back to our usual viewing routine.

While you wait, enjoy this picture of doggo watching Spaceballs.

Happy One Year Anniversary to Us!

Hello, the internet!

Today marks our one year anniversary for this project. Yay!

One year and 120 movies. It may take us some time to reach 1000… But we’re still going strong with no intentions of quitting – we’ve invested way too much time and money in this to give up now! Besides, The Great Edgar Wright himself has promised us a signed Baby Driver poster when we reach #1000. That in itself is motivation enough to keep going (although, to be honest, we think we might deserve a parade when the day arrives).

As we celebrate with alcoholic goodness and perhaps a film or two, we will introduce you to our film buddy – our lovely doggo Dewin who enjoys watching films with us, especially when there are animals on screen. Bask in his gloriousness, you magnificent bastards! We love you all!

Favourites From #51 to #100

We’ve reached 100, and so it’s tradition to do a summary of old and new favourites so far (we’ve done it once before, hence the use of the word “tradition”). So pour yourself your beverage of choice, kick back, and enjoy going through our old posts.

Old favourites we’ve enjoyed rewatching:

New favourites we’ll definitely rewatch in the future:

Films, old and new, which left us mentally scarred for life and in desperate need of pictures of puppies:

Again, thank you all for joining us in this adventure and for reading our rambles on classic films which countless other people have written about more profoundly and eloquently than we could ever dream of doing. We’re having a blast!

We’ll leave you with an artist’s rendition of our physical and mental state 100 films in. Who’s who is up for debate…
