Tromeric's Top 500: And So It Begins

It is finally here. I have been working on this list for a number of months. I started with just my brain and compiled a list of any film I could think of that had an impact on me. When all was said and done with that, it was over fourteen hundred films. I then went through and started chopping off ones until I was down to five hundred. Then was the painstaking task of figuring out the order. I tried and make it as scientific as possible. Using a number system based off of many factors including how many times I have watched each film, how much I have forced other people to watch, and how it affected me at the time of the first viewing. This is a personal list of favorites. I am in no way claiming that some are better than others from a technical standpoint, or even a quality standpoint. You will find films that vary from beloved classics, all the way to despised pieces of trash. I am a glutton for film. Good and bad are subjective in my lexicon.

Over the next few weeks I will be counting down all five hundred, with lists from various guests to spice it up. I hope you have fun reading my nonsense. Share your thoughts. I know there is no way anyone will agree with everything on here.

When this is over, there will be a book published by APEP. It's an activity book. It has a checklist with all five hundred flicks, as well as plenty of other awesome including a crossword, paint by numbers, and more. All the info on where to order will be made available during this event. Thanks for reading. Horns up, and cheers.
