Wow! Thank you so much to all who replied when I said I’d like guest reviews to help me finish the IMDB Top 250 list (original post HERE). I was expecting maybe 10 guest reviews but 68 movies have already been chosen! 🙂
So, yeah – I’ll now be posting them much more often than just once a month. You can email me your reviews anytime to tableninemutant at hotmail dot com. I’ll let you know when yours get scheduled. I was also shocked when I said that I’d limit it to five per person, that so many of you actually chose five! I wasn’t expecting that at all. So, to those who have chosen five, feel free to pick a few more if you seriously want to. 🙂
The movies remaining are below (if you notice one you’ve chosen is still on this list, let me know. It was hard to keep up with all the replies! The Godfathers were grabbed after I’d scheduled this post. Yay!):
55 Life Is Beautiful 1997
117 The Seventh Seal 1957
231 All Quiet on the Western Front 1930
Btw – Here’s my review of the awesome The Lego Movie, which you should all totally rush out to see! I think it got missed after I posted the guest blogging thing… 😉
I should really see Apocalypse Now, too. So what the heck. I’ll add that one to my list, as well. 🙂
You’ve got it! : )
(It’s okay. Kind of a guy thing!)
That’s my expectation. It’s the primary reason I’ve never seen it. I don’t usually like the traditional guy movies all that much.
Could I do Vertigo, Beauty And The Beast, Dial M for Murder, Goodfellas and The Graduate?
Sure! Thanks!! : )
I would be happy to contribute with Gran Torino. 🙂
That would be great! Loved that movie. Thanks for joining! : )
I was going to pick Goodfellas too but I see it’s taken. Can I do Requiem for a Dream and Network?
Yep! They’re yours. Sorry you just missed out on Goodfellas. Thanks for joining in! : )
ok, ok… stop twisting my arm.
I’ll also do Mystic River and Pulp Fiction (if thats ok)
Yep! They’re yours! : )
Oh my soul. Big Fish is lingering with no taker?! I want it. Now. On my huge list. I want it. PS: Godfather I will give you as one big post if that’s cool?
Big Fish is yours! I should re-watch that one. That’s fine on the Godfathers – Lord of the Rings is being done that way too. : )
Yessssssss! I love that movie!
I’ll do whatever you want if you want to assign some to me but for sure I’ll do There Will Be Blood. You know why?
Because it has blood in the title so you think it’s a horror movie?? ; )
BECAUSE I HATED IT!!!!!
Lol! Okay. It’s yours! I certainly didn’t love it.
If we can come back for seconds I’ll take Sin City and Goodfellas.
Goodfellas has just been taken unfortunately but Sin City is still available. It’s yours! : ) I’ve updated the list now.
Is Argo still available? If so, I’ll add that to my other three as well.
I’ll also do Spirited Away, if possible?
Ohh – I’d love to have you do that one! : ) I really need to re-watch that one day now that I’ve gotten more into the Studio Ghibli stuff. It was my introduction & I don’t think it’s the one I should have started on. Sure I’d appreciate it more now. It’s yours! Can’t wait to read that review. : )
I’ve a couple of Miyazaki movies to catch up on but I’ve seen most of them and Spirited Away is still my favourite. I’d be happy to do that.
Yep! Argo is yours too. Yay! : )
Can I take 2001: A Space Odyssey? Been meaning to watch it for a while now, especially since all of the Resolutions!
Of course you can! Yay! I love that one. Thanks for joining in! : )
Thanks Mutant! Looking forward to this. 🙂
Okay right I’ll do Kill Bill cos The Bride is my f-ing hero and Pirates of the Caribbean (Arr!) Is there a deadline? Also when is John Hughes starting?
Excellent! I’ll take them off the list. John Hughes starting in March so reviews by the end of this month. (I’m starting to worry – I’ve heard nothing from a lot who signed up!). No deadline on the others – anytime you can get around to them. With so many chosen, I’ll probably post them quite often. 🙂
I am hoping to do 16 Candles this weekend and Miracle on 34th Street during the next week. I’m away for most of March so I want to get through all my blogathon commitments ASAP!

I can take Schindler’s List, and I’ve already reviewed Platoon for my blog if you want to use it.
That’s great! I didn’t think anyone would attempt Schindler’s List. : ) Is it okay if I post the Platoon review in full here as well for it?
That’ll work for Platoon. I’ve got a couple more to do before Schindler’s, but it’s towards the top of my to watch list now.

Love to join but I think everything is taken already..haha! Being late for a week in my blog reading does that, eh? If you still have any, just tell me which ones and I’ll do it 🙂
I’d love to have you join in!!! : ) There are 12 left to choose from. This is the updated list of the 12. Choose as many as you like! Even 1 would be great. : ) https://table9mutant.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/imdb-top-250-guest-blogger-update/
Lion King and The Hobbit sounds good for me 🙂 I still owe you the John Hughes blogathon post which I’ll get to you soon then I’ll work on these. Is that ok?
That’s great! : ) Thanks – I can’t wait to see your reviews! No deadline on the imdb ones, really. I’m shocked I’ve gotten some so quick!

Oooh, this is neat. Can I claim The Elephant Man? I’ve really been wanting to see that one for awhile, and I actually currently have it in my Netflix queue soon
Of course you can! Yay – I can’t wait to read your review!! : ) I think The Elephant Man is a wonderful movie.

Top? If you ever do bottom whatever movies I’d be all over reviewing those.
Lol! I did an IMDB bottom 100 movie review for Shitfest at The IPC (The Hottie & The Nottie) and another one that’ll be posted in a couple days (it must be bottom 100 as well. Very shit!). Have you done a review for Shitfest??
I have no idea what that is.

Hi, I just discovered this. Is North by Northwest still available?
Disco Girl, can you remind me what I chose again? I’ve done Heat and Argo and have Spirited Away still to add. Am I right in saying there’s another two I’m missing?
Is Rear Window still available because I can do that! 🙂
It’s not, unfortunately. I’m going to do an updated list soon as I think some got missed (like I’m not sure anyone picked Scarface but it’s not on the list) and I’m worried if any were picked more than once (but I suppose that wouldn’t be the end of the world). : ) I believe these are the final ones available:
49 The Pianist 2002
55 Life Is Beautiful 1997
57 Double Indemnity 1944
61 A Clockwork Orange 1971
64 Intouchables 2011
117 The Seventh Seal 1957
134 The Deer Hunter 1978
143 The Sixth Sense 1999
158 Gone with the Wind 1939
164 V For Vendetta 2005
169 Ben-Hur 1959
231 All Quiet on the Western Front 1930
I could do a clockwork orange. how do I go about sending it across!?
You can email it to tableninemutant at hotmail dot com. I have reviews scheduled through June so it would probably be posted in July sometime. I can give you an exact date closer to the time. I was surprised no one had chosen Clockwork Orange (well, I don’t think anyone did. Lol. I’m unorganized). ; ) Thanks for joining in! Is that Chris Hemsworth in your picture? Can’t quite see it…
I’ll email it to you asap. Ok, no worries. Surprised too, it’s a great film.
It is indeed!
Wait – were you actually just inches from Chris Hemsworth..???? !
I was yes! Avengers premiere.
Oh. My. God. Yeah, I’m not the slightest bit jealous of you being so close to the most gorgeous man in the world. ; )
I’ll do Deer Hunter if you like?
Great! Excellent film. : ) I’ll remove it from the list. Thanks for joining in!
I’d love to do The Pianist & Intouchables? Let me know if that’s possible 🙂
Excellent! I loooove Intouchables. I was going to do that one myself if no one was ever going to choose it. : ) I’ll remove those from the list. Thanks for joining in!
Haha sure thing man! I’ll write the reviews somewhere mid June, but I’ll let you know.
Great! I look forward to reading them. : ) I schedule them in the order I receive them – I post them Tuesdays & Thursdays & currently have reviews scheduled through early July. I’ll let you know when I receive them what date they’ll be posted. : )
We actually have a mini plan for our own blog to see and review the big 250 list so we’d love to join in, it would be a 2 birds 1 stone situation for us! Is The Sixth Sense still available? – Allie
Hi! Yes – that one is still available if you’d like to do a review for it. : )
Brilliant! I’ll drop you a note when we’ve finished it 🙂
Hi again! Our review for The Sixth Sense is up, here’s the link: http://flick-chicks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/review-sixth-sense-1999-guest-post.html
That’s great – thanks! What I’ve had to do is post them in the order I’ve been receiving them & I currently have reviews scheduled through late July. Are you okay with a bit of a wait until it’s posted on my site too? I’ve had a few where they posted on their site as well – I like to post them in full here too if that’s okay? With a link back to your blog. You can e-mail it to me in Word & I’ll try to post it to look the same. I sometimes add a few images from the film if you want…. : )
Would you mind if I review and give you ‘Double Indemnity’?
That would be great, Cindy! I’d love a review from you! : ) Sorry for the late reply – having trouble commenting on WordPress. Someone actually asked for that one about 20 minutes after you on Twitter so you got it just in time! : )
Awesome timing! I was JUST going to write a review for DI. I will have it for you probably Monday or Tuesday. How do I get it to you?
Oh, btw, I posted a preamble to DI with a background of the genre of film noir. Care to look? 😉
That would be great! : ) You can e-mail it to tableninemutant at hotmail dot com. I’ll strike a deal with you – you’ve mentioned to people that it’s coming soon so I’ll post it soon as I’d love to have you involved. I have this coming Tuesday & Thursday scheduled already so is the Tuesday after soon enough?? I won’t tell anyone I’ve moved you up the schedule if you don’t. ; ) lol (There’s been a huge response! I’m happy to say I have reviews scheduled through the end of July currently) : )
Yes, please post the following Tuesday. That’d be great.
Hey there! I know this is WAYY late, and I’m not sure if you’ll even see this comment but could you mark me down for Gone with the Wind? I would really really like to review that and take part in this, and also — i have NEVER SEEN IT!!! I have to put a stop to this silliness. So if you could, sign me up! 😀
Yay!!! That would be awesome! Would love to have you join in! And… Gone With The Wind?! You’re brave! Lol! It’s four hours long – Are you sure?? ; ) I really need to go through all these replies someday & post an update because I think I deleted some off the list by accident & there are a few volunteers I’ve not heard from again so I think I’ll be able to add more to the list of ones available again. : ) I have to put Mystic River back on & I can’t find if anyone actually picked Scarface. I should have kept a list as people signed up! : )
I’ll review Life is Beautiful if it’s still available!
Oh, that would be great! Yes, that one is available. Thank you! I’ll take it off the list. 🙂
Awesome! I’ll get started on this soon 🙂
