Hello everyone! Thanks again for all the wonderful guest reviews you’ve sent me for my IMDB Top 250 Challenge. Several people have asked me to remind them which movies they chose. I’ve been meaning for some time now to go through all the comments & get a proper list together of who chose what as it was hard to keep track & I may have missed some replies. (I had to make a spreadsheet, people! I felt like I was at work). 😉 First of all: DID SOMEONE CHOOSE SCARFACE?!
(That’s me after working on the spreadsheet) 😉
I took Scarface off the list but can’t find a comment from anyone choosing it. This is what I currently show as having not yet been chosen:
– Life Is Beautiful 1997
– Mystic River 2003
– Goodfellas 1990
– Vertigo 1958
– The Graduate 1967
– Beauty And The Beast 1991
– Taxi Driver 1976
– Into the Wild 2007
– American Beauty 1999
Now, I’ve put together this list of reviews I’m waiting for & who chose them. Don’t worry – I’m not chasing any of you for these! I myself have to do about 100 reviews from the 250 – that’ll take me AGES. Ugh! I just wanted a list in one place so I can keep my head straight on this plus I know a lot of you weren’t sure which ones you chose. Can I just ask each of you to confirm in the comments if you definitely still want to review these?
I’ve never heard again from a few of the below volunteers. I know I talk to a lot of you quite often & know the reviews are coming. But if anyone has changed their mind on doing any of these reviews, please let me know as I’ve had several new people express interest in joining in. I promise it’s okay if you’ve changed your mind! I’ll give it a few weeks (until July 6th) and if I’ve not received a reply on some of the movies below, I’ll add them back onto the list for other bloggers to be able to review. (Don’t worry if we’ve been in contact since you chose these – I know most of you are still planning on doing these. ZOE – Do not freak out! I know yours are coming! Lol). 😉

FYI: There’s currently about a 2 month wait from when you send me your review to when it’ll post – I’ve received enough reviews already to have them scheduled up to August right now. If you send me more than one at once, I’ll space them out a bit.
SPOILERS: Also, I’m not telling you what to write (I’m a laid back & easygoing person!) 😉 but I’m just letting you all know I’ll have to include a Spoiler Warning on any reviews I think contain a little too much information. You can discuss the movies as much as you like in the reviews – I just like to put a big warning before a major spoiler as I know some people haven’t seen these films but want to read the reviews. I apologize for not always remembering to put that warning on some of the guest reviews. I’ve tried to make the big spoiler parts of reviews “invisible” but it doesn’t seem to work with my theme – Sorry
Hope that didn’t sound bossy! Thanks again to all you wonderful volunteers! I may have to give up some of my 100 at some point if I actually want all 250 movies reviewed… 🙂
I’m definitely still in! I promise I will do them very soon.
That’s okay, Abbi! Honestly – there’s no rush. Just wanted to make sure a few people were still in. : )
I’ll be getting them to you since I just got back from vacation. I can get Lion King to you this coming week if you’d like 🙂 As for The Hobbit, since I’m in between moving houses, my boyfriend misplaced it and as we get those up, it should reappear probably by July. Hope thats okay for you.
That’s great, Kim! Seriously, I don’t actually have any sort of deadline so you really can send them anytime. I just had some new people wanting to join so wanted to double check who was still in for sure. Plus a lot of people forgot they signed up. Lol : )
Haha! Its cool! I do think its about time to write it up so I’ll try to get you one of them within the next week 🙂
😀 I’m actually going to watch one of my last remaining two tonight!
Plus two my exams are almost over. Then I am back in full swing!
Lol. Anytime is fine, Zoe. ; ) You know I’m really just chasing those I’d not heard from at all plus it’s also easier to now have a proper list on here for me to look at. And… Lots of people actually forgot what movies they signed up for and it was difficult always having to dig through their comments. ; )
😀 It is nice hey! At least you will then know what’s outstanding. Phew that must have taken time. I do not envy you!
I’m in as well, need to rewatch the Pianist though & the review for The Intouchables is already done. 🙂 This is such an amazing project!
That’s great, thanks! : ) I love The Intouchables – I almost kept that for myself. : )
Haha “almost” 😉 😀
Oh wow I totally forgot about Black Swan! Apologies, but I think I’ll release Silence of the Lambs, I’ll get onto Black Swan very soon however.
That’s okay – lol – Silence of the Lambs got snatched up immediately after your reply. ; ) Looking forward to reading Black Swan! (Honestly – there’s no rush on doing it – just wanted to check in with people). Btw – your double review is scheduled for Thursday next week (26th) at 11am. : )
That’s good then with SotL. Yuss looking forward to seeing it up!
YES, CUP. I am IN. Just catching up on life. Married last Saturday. Closing on the house soon. Celebrating my first Father’s Day with the little terrorist I call my daughter. And looking into reconstructing the hand/wrist I mangled back in April. But yes, I’m still in.
Those all sound like flimsy excuses. 😉
I also have explosive diarrhea. Forgot to mention that. Every time I hit the “V” key, I shit my pants. That’s four times in this very short reply already. Five. Six.
Damn – now I REALLY wish you’d chosen to write about V For Vendetta but someone else already did that. ; )
Excuses excuses! ; ) (Don’t worry, dude – you know we’ve talked & I really just wanted to check in with those I’ve not heard from since February). ; ) Seriously – NO rush at all! You know I’ve still not done that Muppets review I said I’d be doing (and still will. eventually). Just hard to find any time at the moment (especially to look at other blogs – love that Elsa!). : ) Besides, when you do it I’ll kind of be forced to do one I kept for myself (the first one) that same week.
i’ll do silence of the lambs if it isn’t already taken. i just watched it again last week so it’s fresh in my mind
You’ve got it! And, yes – I got the email. You snatched that one up VERY quick! Lol : )
i’m still in 🙂
Leave it up to you. You’re as bad as Mike! ; )
I’m still in – will get my reviews done for ya! 🙂
No problem! No hurry – honestly. : ) Thanks again for joining in! : )
I would like to be in for this. When would you need my review by if I was to be involved with this.
Anytime! : ) There’s really no deadline but I wanted to remind a few people I’d not heard from. Umm… Sometime in 2014 would be good. : )
sent you a review this morning. 🙂
The Vern – I’ve updated the list in this post – a few people have given up their movies so there are a few more to choose from. : )
Hello sorry for the delay. Would you mind if I just did goodwill hunting? I think I got a bit carr
A bit carried away suggesting id do so many. X
That’s okay – no problem at all! I totally understand – I’ve signed up for some guest things and am now a little stressed about finishing them. I’ve left you on the list for Good Will Hunting – I’m sure the others will be grabbed soon. Thanks for joining in! : )
Hi. : ) I was just wondering if you’d like to review Good Will Hunting now as part of a tribute to Robin Williams? I’ll probably post some kind of tribute to him soon so wondered if you’d like your review for that posted the same week? : )
I’m way behind on reviews. Sorry, hope someone else can take All About Eve.
That’s okay, Alex! I know how you feel – I’ve signed up for too much guest stuff. Someone has already grabbed All About Eve! Thanks again for the great 12 Angry Men review. : )
Still definitely in! I’ll be taking Spade Odyssey for a whirl soon hopefully.
it’s about some apes that go to the moon, then need to call tech support because the feckin’ PC acts up
Space Odyssey has apes!? SOLD!
That’s great, V! : ) Love that movie – I’d have a hell of a time trying to write about that one. Lol. Can’t wait to read your review. : ) (but, honestly – there’s no deadline. just checking in with everyone). : )
I’m still in. I need to get on the third LOTR and then I’ll get it out. Thank for the reminder!
That’s great! Thanks for joining in. Honestly – send it anytime! Just checking in with people. : )
Am I too late to get involved? I’d love to review All About Eve (if it’s still for the taking?) as it’s one of my faves,
No – you’re not too late! All About Eve is all yours. : ) Send it anytime – I don’t really have a deadline. My email address is tableninemutant at hotmail dot com – Thanks for joining in! : )
Just waiting for LoveFilm to send me this and then I’ll write the review – fingers crossed by the middle of July, I see you have plenty scheduled to last until then 😉
Thanks for reminding me….I will get it to you post haste 😉
That’s okay, Cindy – there’s really no rush. I just needed a list in one place. ; ) Your Double Indemnity review is up now! Thanks again for joining in. : )
Yes, ma’am I’m still in!!! I will try to get you HTTYD ASAP. To Kill a Mockingbird might take a little while longer…Lol. But it WILL happen. 🙂
Lol. Seriously – there’s no rush. I know you’ll do them. Anytime is fine! : ) I’m the one owing YOU something sooner!!!!!
Hey, for you, I would extend that due date. 😉
Still in. I will send Platoon by the end of the week.
I’ve reviewed Silence of the Lambs, Forrest Gump, and Groundhog Day, you’re more than welcome to use them.
No problem – anytime is fine! : ) Thank you so much for joining in. Someone actually just sent me Silence of the Lambs. Thanks for the offer on the others! I’ll check with the people who said they’d like to join in & see if they want those first if that’s okay? I’ll leave them on the list for a little longer and see if they want to do them otherwise I’ll come back to you on them! : )
I’m not actually officially involved in this project BUT I do have reviews for All About Eve and It’s A Wonderful Life on my blog. You are welcome to use them if its helps (with credit to me of course). 🙂
Phew. Finally made it to your comment. Lol. ; ) Thanks for joining in on this! It’s A Wonderful Life is one I almost kept for myself but I’ve kept like 100 so I had to give up a few favorites. ; )
No problem. Thanks for allowing me in at this late stage! 🙂
I’ve done mine, just need to send it mate! What’s your email?
Excellent! I love when people call me mate. Or dude. Don’t know why… Lol : )
It’s tableninemutant at hotmail dot com
Still in. Just taking a little longer than planned to get things done, but I’m still committed to it.
That’s great! It’s no problem – honestly. Send it anytime. Just wanted to check in with everyone. : )
Haha!! Oh crap, I completely completely forgot I had signed up also for The Elephant Man! (This makes more sense why it’s been in my Netflix queue for the last six or so months! 😉 ). I’ll try to get to that one as soon as possible, but I’d really like to do Gone with the Wind first. But it might be a little bit before I get around to that as well as I’m pretty backed up myself and summer has been really sapping my energy as of late! lol
I’m so full of excuses. . . . .
Lol! Silly boy. ; ) that’s why I finally had to do a spreadsheet – I had no clue who had signed up for what! I hadn’t kept track. : ) Honestly – ANY time you can do them is fine. There’s seriously no rush. Just wanted to get a list together & check in with people. Have you not yet seen The Elephant Man at all? It’s a wonderful film. : )
I’ll write something on The Seventh Seal for you if no-one else has snapped it up?
Oh – that would be great! Nope – no one has grabbed that one. I’ll put you down for it. : )
Awesomeness! I am waiting on my friend to bring me a copy of the movie I chose. Woo hoo!
Yay! I look forward to posting another review from a fellow Proby. ; )
Ours is already posted, sorry if you’ve seen already: http://flick-chicks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/review-sixth-sense-1999-guest-post.html
Yes – I saw it. Thank you. : ) Did you get my reply to you on here? I’ll message you on Twitter later – you may not receive notifications of replies here… : )
Yo. I am still definitely keen to review The Avengers. I am taking off for three weeks of holidays to England-Ireland-Scotland in a little bit though, so it will be a while coming. Sounds like you have a bunch to line up in any case though. Has someone called dibs on The Truman Show yet? I will take that on if not.
P.s. you linked to some other beer and movie blog above. I am at beermovie.net.
That’s great! Oh, sorry – I was looking them all up so quickly & guess I grabbed the wrong link! That person may be confused now. ; ) Yeah – there’s no rush – was just making sure people were still in. : ) I can mark you down for The Truman Show as well – I’d kept that for myself but had to give some up as kept too many!! Have a nice holiday. I’m sure the weather will suck as usual in England but Scotland & Ireland are lovely… Lol
Sweet, all good. Will get on the reviews after my trip. Looking forward to escaping the winter (even if it is only an Australian winter) for some nicer temperatures.
By the way – I’d not have actually taken your movie from you – I’d have put a message on your blog if I’d not heard from you. I sound mean in my post! Lol! I should re-word it. ; )
I’m still in! Sorry it’s taking so long. I’ve had a hard time tracking some of the films down. Apparently having fun is still hard even with a library card.
Hi. : ) Just checking – with the Sin City sequel coming out, I’d like to post the Sin City IMDB review now. Would you still like to do this one? Otherwise I could as I’ve seen it. But I’d rather not as I HATE it. Lol! : )
Yes! I can have it to you tomorrow morning? If not I can finish it tonight after work. I also plan to get Chinatown and Memento to you in the next week or so.
And by tomorrow morning I mean around 12 hours from now.
Lol. Wow! That IS quick! ; ) I only post them Tuesdays & Thursdays anyway so it doesn’t need to be in 12 hours. ; ) I could post it Tuesday? Just thought it would be the perfect time with the sequel out next week. : ) you can email it to tableninemutant at hotmail dot com. In Word or whatever is fine. And you can include pics as attachments if you want some included in the review. : )
Haha phew that will be easier. For some reason I thought the movie was coming out this week (I think it was guilt-induced panic for taking so long). I just rewatched it this week to email it to you. I transitioned recently to Tuesday and Thursday posting as well so I had planned to get the review to you by Tuesday. I’ll email you in the next day or two and hopefully at least one of the other reviews in the middle of next week.
No problem! Didn’t mean to panic you & don’t normally chase people. Just suddenly realized the sequel was out soon & that it would make sense to post it now. : ) No rush on the others – in September I’ll be slowing it down & only posting one imdb review a week. : )
Sorry I forgot about this, but thankfully I’ve reviewed both of the movies. Here’s the link: http://wp.me/pxXPC-8az and http://wp.me/pxXPC-8wl Let me know via DM if you would like me to send you the articles in another format. Thanks for letting me take part!
That’s okay! Thanks for this. Oh – I’ll DM you if you want. Lol! I find Twitter easier! ; )
table9: i can do the bourne ultimatum if it hasn’t been taken
Sure! Lol – I love that you’re loving this IMDB thing. : ) Think you have a review coming up fairly soon. I’ll check & get back to you! Soonish! : )
I cant believe no one has taken some of these. Is the list really updated?
I’ll take Goodfella’s, Dial M for Murder, Forrest Gump, Vertigo and Taxi Driver if you want (at least) (unless you want to spread the wealth around a bit) 🙂
Still wanna go with the same schedule for me? if you have open spots that you want me to fill up, just let me know
Still the same schedule for now. : ) Think Sept 11th is your next one? Do you know which one you’d like to do next? I can get the logo ready. A few of those have been taken so I need to update the list. I’ll leave the rest on there a LITTLE longer just in case anyone new comes along who’d like to join in. : ) But I’ll let you know if they never get grabbed!
As of October, I’m going to slow down & only post one IMDB review a week. Not sure yet which day but we can still go with the 2nd week of the month. : ) I might skip October completely as well because I may have something else planned for that month. Will let you know…
K. Think ill go with PF. Is that ok?
Yep! : )
Hmmm. Looking at your remaining list. I don’t see anyone chomping at the bit for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ –would you like me to do that one?
Yes! That would be great. 🙂 I get out of having to do that one since, technically, I saw it since we watched it at school. Can’t say I remember it, though. 😉 Your Gran Torino will post fairly soon – I’ll let you know the date!
Hi, I’m new to your blog and yep, I just followed you, nice stuff! If nobody has taken Vertigo yet I’d love to get involved. Check out my blog here, http://backtotheviewer.wordpress.com/
Hi! Sure – that would be great if you’d like to do Vertigo. 🙂
Excellent, I’ve been meaning to rewatch it so it’s perfect timing really
Hi there, I’ve just finished my review of ‘Vertigo’ sorry it has taken me a while! How would you like me to send it to you?
Hi! That’s okay. I should have said there’s quite a backlog, actually, as I have guest reviews scheduled through the end of February. However, I did keep December 30th free as I wasn’t sure if anyone would want theirs posted that week (I post them Tuesdays). Would you want it posted then? You can send it to me in Word if you’re able to, indicating where you’d want pictures placed if you want to include any. You can e-mail it to tableninemutant at hotmail dot com 🙂
Wow. This is brillilant! So, I’ve just stumbled upon your lovely blog, and I’m already loving what I’m seeing and reading. I’ve also spent a lot of time on it thus far, and envision even more time spent persuing the archives and new posts. I noticed in this post, from back in early Summer, that you did not have a review for “American Beauty”, which strangely enough, I wrote on Sept. 30, but I feel it could fit nicely in thiss challenge of yours. If it’s still available, I’d love to share it, assuming, of course, that it’s fine this post is not entirely “recent”.
Would love to have another person join this project! There are a couple I posted that had been previously posted on other blogs so that’s fine as long as I can post it in full here as well (and of course link back to your blog in the introduction I always do)? I try to keep this old post up to date as I always link back to it but I just need to double check with someone on American Beauty as they’d suggested doing it but then I think decided against it. I’ll get back to you and let you know! 🙂
Sounds good. If it’s taken, then it is. Such is the nature of first come, first serve.
It’s available! However, at this point I have guest reviews already scheduled into March. Sorry – forgot to mention that! So I can post it in March if you don’t mind the wait. 🙂
Not at all. I saw that mentioned a few times when perusing through posts and comments, to see what had been claimed. I’ll take a look at it to see if there’s anything to fix, it’s been a while, and I can send it on to you in full, whenever.
