I've added a Letterboxd list for those of you who want to keep track of which films from the book you have and haven't seen. There are quite a few missing in the tmdb database, so those of you with time on their hands are more  than welcome to add them and I'll update the list accordingly.


I've just added THE LIFETAKER to the tmdb if you want to add it to your list Pete.

Cheers Jonny! I've updated the list with The Lifetaker and a few other titles. Less than 10 left to be added now.
I've finished the book as well. I thought it was a great read and since I've only seen a fraction of all the titles in the book, so there are quite a few ones that need to be added to my watch-list. I think the Reckoning is up next.

No worries. I'll add any that still need adding when I get a chance later this afternnoon.

I must get this book. Seems like I've been missing out on a lot of films I've not even heard of.

I'm feeling the same way and still have nearly two months to wait! I might start having to ignore some threads to leave me with a few surprises.  ;D

I'm trying not to be spoilerish in any way with the threads I've started recently. Apologies if I have been at any point!

I'll be watching Edward Woodward in THE APPOINTMENT tonight, thread to follow!  :-X

Oh no, not at all! Just thinking of leaving myself some films to discover from reading the book.

Thanks Jonny! I've just added the few titles that were still missing so the list is complete now.

I've actually stopped reading the reviews for films I've not seen now after realising they are spolier filled. So all the films I've been watching this past week have been blind watches, I'm using Pete's Letterboxd list to check what I have and have not seen and choosing my next viewing from that list. Only then am I going to the book and reading what they have to say.

Magic! My goal is to watch all the films on the list, I've so far only seen 30% of them (34 films out of 112) so I've a way to go yet.

It seems this has been delayed from the 4th March release date everywhere was showing. Very cheap at Amazon now though at under £11.

I've got this on pre-order. Looking forward to having a gander when it arrives.

I still haven't got around to buying the book yet.  Must rectify that!
