Movie 250
Jul 12, 2007

Yesterday, I posted the 250th movie review, The Tao of Steve (2000) at 50 Words. Since May 24, I’ve posted 50 movie reviews, an average of about one a day. Some of the movies I’ve reviewed are ones that I’ve seen before. Some of them I own. I only review things once on 50 Words, though.

Oh, I should update the list:

  • Seen: 586
  • In Queue: 443
  • Unavailable: 319
  • Left to see (but not in queue): 997
  • Total: 2345
