How Many of the Movies from Roger Ebert’s List of Great Movies Have You Seen?

Roger Ebert's Great Movies ListI’ve mentioned before how several years ago I created a list using Roger Ebert’s Great Movies, Oscar Best Picture winners, IMDb’s Top 250, etc. and began going through them doing my best to see as many of the films on these lists that I had not seen as I possibly could to up my film I.Q.

Well, someone has gone through the exhaustive effort to take all of the films Roger Ebert wrote about in his three “Great Movies” books, all of which are compiled on his website and added them to a Letterbxd list and I’ve added that list below.

I’m not positive every movie on his list is here, but by my count there are 363 different titles listed (more if you count the trilogies, the Up docs and Decalogue) and of those 363, I have personally seen 229 and have added an * next to those I’ve seen.

Clearly I have some work to do, but what about you? Check the list below, check out the Letterbxd list, start adding some greats to your Netflix queues and even Hulu has gotten in on the action with a page dedicated to the movies he declared among the “greats”.
