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.

191 ... The Producers (1968)

191 ... The Producers (1968)

Never seen this film before (oh, what a sheltered life you've led MrC) about a failing theatre producer and accountant trying to make a fortune by producing a sure fire flop and running away with their investors money. Although it's deemed a classic and I'd heard good things, it didn't really float my boat. I think mainly due to this film ageing quite a lot.

It just took too long to really get going, and ages to get to the best bit - 'Springtime for Hitler'. That is a great set piece and together with the character L.S.D. make the film worth watching.
AFO (A Film Odyssey) rating 6

Although not the best this is still an enjoyable Mel Brooks movie. I'm a huge Brooks fan. The musical remake is great fun and worth a look.

Captain's rating: 7.5
