201 : A Film Odyssey

This all started after I read Empire magazine back in March 2006.

Inside was a definitive list of the 201 best films of all time, as voted for by the magazine and it's readers. Included in the list were all kinds of films I would never normally watch. So as a keen film watcher, I thought to myself it might be a good idea to try and watch all the films in order and record my thoughts, and at the end of it, see how close the list was to my 201 best films.

This project will be much better if you could comment on these films and my reviews, so please, please, please get involved, just click on the comments text at the bottom of each review.

192 ... Romeo + Juliet

192 ... Romeo + Juliet

Hhhmmm ... Olde English Shakespeare original dialogue set in a modern day Verona, after 10 minutes my thoughts were 'how long before I turn this off?'.

But I stuck with it and it turned out to be a pretty good film, once you get your head round it. Pete Postlethwaite is great.

Not everyone's cup of tea, but I thought surprisingly good.

Benvolio: Why, Romeo, art thou mad?Romeo: Not mad, but bound more than a mad man is. Shut up in prison, kept without my food, whipped and tormented.

AFO (A Film Odyssey) rating 7
