IMDb top 250 Movies

I mentioned that I want to watch more movies this year, but I wasn't entirely sure how to go about it. I mean, saying something vague like "watch more movies" or "listen to new music" is pretty much the equivalent of saying nothing at all in my experience. It's just empty words that haven't really moved from a thought to an idea yet.

So, I went looking for a way to turn my thoughts into a more concrete idea and I found the IMDb chart of the top 250 movies as voted by users. Though this isn't exactly the kind of list I was hoping for, I still think it's as good a place as any to start. (Not gonna lie though, if I find a better list I’m totally dropping this one.)

If you have any favorites or are surprised not to see a particular movie on this list let me know.
