I know I've done this sort of thing before at some point, but this time it's a little different. This time I'm checking the number of films I've seen from IMDB's Top Worldwide Grossing Movies list. Previously, I did it for the top 250 rated films, so let's see how much more I am of a mass-consumer rather than a discerning viewer.

And having spent 2 minutes going through the list, I am in fact a slave to mass-marketing. I've seen 70 of the top 100 grossing films of all time, and a total of 155 from the 236 listed. Dammit. Added to this is the fact that around 6 or 7 are being released on DVD fairly soon, which means I will probably see them at some time in the next 6 months (these include 2 Fast 2 Furious, Terminator 3, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hulk, Bruce Almighty and Finding Nemo). I am such a consumer. 155 from 236 is ever-so-slightly under two-thirds, and 70 from 100 is over two-thirds. Dammit. this is very hard to take when I've only seen 33 of the 100 top-rated films, which is only one-third. Dammit, dammit and dammit again. I need to watch some more 'great' films.

Speaking of which, I have a choice between Westworld and Rules of Engagement tonight on TV. God bless British terrestrial television... Think I might get a DVD out...
