The Film-Lover's Check List

By Samuel Stoddard

Compulsive cinephiles, or those interested in making a comprehensive study of great films, may find the Film-Lover's Check List a handy tool. So you want to see all Best Picture Oscar winners? Or all of the American Film Institute's Top 100 Films? Or all titles on the Sight & Sound Top 10 polls, conducted every ten years? How about every title featured in Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" column? What if you have your own list of movies that you want to make and keep track of?

The Film-Lover's Check List serves three purposes: (1) It helps you keep track of titles you've seen. (2) It points you toward other great films. (3) It allows you to make your own lists and track the movies you've seen on them. All you have to do is register (it's free), then set up which pages you want to have on your check list (use the default pages for a good set of recommendations), and go through the list of movies and check off which ones you've seen. Then you'll be able to browse your check list. Here's an example check list that will show you what the result will look like.

The Film-Lover Check List has been reworked. Here's a list of all the new features!
