Cinematic Taste Buds

How Many of the Movies from Roger Ebert's List of Great Movies Have You Seen?

Time to start adding to that Netflix queue

Roger Ebert's Great Movies ListI've mentioned before how several years ago I created a list using Roger Ebert's Great Movies, Oscar Best Picture winners, IMDb's Top 250, etc. and began going through them doing my best to see as many of the films on these lists that I had not seen as I possibly could to up my film I.Q.

Well, someone has gone through the exhaustive effort to take all of the films Roger Ebert wrote about in his three "Great Movies" books, all of which are compiled on his website and added them to a Letterbxd list and I've added that list below.

I'm not positive every movie on his list is here, but by my count there are 363 different titles listed (more if you count the trilogies, the Up docs and Decalogue) and of those 363, I have personally seen 229 and have added an * next to those I've seen.

Clearly I have some work to do, but what about you? Check the list below, check out the Letterbxd list, start adding some greats to your Netflix queues and even Hulu has gotten in on the action with a page dedicated to the movies he declared among the "greats".

    104 out of 363. Not proud of that number. lol

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Newbourne/ Newbourne

      I have the upmost respect for Roger Ebert, but I just can't grasp some of the ones included and excluded on this list.

      How is The Grey Zone included, but not any of the Lord of the Rings?
      How is Looney Tunes included, but not any of the Pixar films?
      How is Babel included, but not The Departed or Little Miss Sunshine from the same year?

      This is really hard to grasp. I'm a big Ebert fan, but some of his choices just seem quite odd.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/HarryFuertes/ Harry Fuertes

        Aw I love Babel. But I see your point. But this is not a list of the greatest films of all time. This is a list of movies "HE" believed to be great films. This is essentially a compilation of movies he either loves or highly respects.

        • http://www.myfilmreview.nl/home/ Reindeer

          And for the Babel part: he never wrote a "normal" review for the film due to his illness. I think when he saw it the first time, he just added it to his Great Movies because he thought it was one. In other words, he wanted to write about it and share it with us. Especially when it comes to Little Miss Sunshine: I can see why it is way less interesting to write about it.

          And look at his star-ratings for The Lord of the Rings-films: he's not the biggest fan.

          As for the list: only 1 to go... to reach 300. :-) Have been 'following' this list for years!

        • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fairportfan/ Fairportfan

          Also, this list is compiled from his "Great FIlms" books - how long ago was the most recent?

      • http://www.iamramiam.blogspot.com Movieram

        Count me among the non-fans of Babel. It was a pretentious bore whenever Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchetwere not onscreen. It was one of the worst Best Picture nominees thatI've ever seen and Rinko Kikuchi gets my shout-out as the most undeserving acting nominee EVER.

        That said, I admired the film's intent, if not its execution, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's direction is superb at times.Clearly the film frustrated me to no end.

        Roger Ebert was the bomb, though -- he created for himself the coolest job and his passion for movies was infectious. I generally agreed with him,and tried not to take it personally when he dissed a film that I loved. My respect for him was such that if I didn't "get" a film that he loved, well, the fault was clearly mine.

        He understood that greatness usually takes time and conversation to become universaly recognized. Heaven knows that there is room for a myriad of discussion points with Babel. Maybe that's something he factored into his definition of a great movie.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/aeris2001x2/ Daniel Ware

        This is his personal list, why should it subscribe to what you or others say?

        Personally Babel would be on my list, but not Little Miss Sunshine though it is a great film its not in my all time list. The Departed is a turgid mess of a film. I like Pixar but non is good enough for my all time list.

        Ebert has also included Raging Bull, Last Tango in Paris and Lawrence of Arabia, which are all mediocre to me. But I am not going to diss him for including them. There is no Usual Suspects, Crimson Tide or Leon which I love but so what. Every list is personal.

        I think to understand 'why' you must read the reviews by Roger Ebert of each movie you're speaking of - including the ones on his list and his reviews of the ones that didn't make it....He liked every film you mentioned - but do yourself a favor and read the reviews and understand why these films made the list and his reviews of the ones that didn't make his list.

        One thing is for sure you will be entertained, he's a fine writer, extremely insightful, fair and offers a killer sense of humor in his reviews - Along with knowing film history as well as the technical aspects of making films....all the films mentioned as well as his whole 'Greatest Movies List' can be found on Ebert's web pages.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/SmartFilm/ SmartFilm

    I've only seen 56. I respect Ebert and all but his reach mostly covers older 'classic' movies. There's hardly a few newer than 20 years old on that list. I know it takes a while for a movie to stew and dab the name 'great' but still. Plus, it just always seems like such a chore to watch movies from the 50's and earlier. I'm sure some of them are great but good god some are just so boring.

      Oh and I'm siding with Laremy and calling out 'Babel' for not being anywhere near great.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/jleahy/ Jarrett Leahy

      I understand your sentiments, I too used to have those similar feelings about older films. But all I can tell you to keep trying because once you get the right eye for older films, you'll discover you have been cutting yourself off from 60-70 years of amazing films. And that's where Ebert's Great Movies list & reviews are a great starting point to help you.

      MTV-style film-making claims another attention span?

  • http://www.criterion.com/my_criterion/27913-criterion10 Criterion10

    According to my Letterboxd account, I've seen 144 of the 364 films, or 39%. Hoping to bring that number up significantly.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/jleahy/ Jarrett Leahy

    158 and counting, I may not agree with every entry, but it is an amazing list of films that I use it for ideas on lesser known netflix picks.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/jleahy/ Jarrett Leahy

      oh, and hulu.com is offering some free Ebert Great movies this week in honor of Roger, here is the link.

    Only 95. Dang, I got some homework to do.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/ashdurdin/ ashdurdin

    I've seen 114 so far, great to see Shadow of a Doubt and Cat People on the list.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Will-E/ Will-E

    I'm surprised you haven't seen The Producers or The Wall. Both are great and The Wall is the type of film the could solicit lots of conversation.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Tom/ Tom

    Only 98 for me

  • http://timeforafilm.com Alex Thomas

    Letterboxd says I've seen 30/364... *faints*

    Will add a few to my watchlist.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Corbin/ Corbin

      That makes me feel better. I too have only seen 30 out of 363 films.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Jake17/ Jake17

      Haha, I'm at about the same number... glad to see there's a few of us....

      • JB Cerulli

        Only 31... I have seen lots and lots of movies, just not too many on this list

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Mikey/ Mikey

    I've only seen 57, but i'm not sweating it. I've only recently started moving through older cinema, and could conceivably see myself doubling this number by this time next year. Anyway it's off to netflix to update my ever growing queue.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Ryguy815/ Ryguy815

    I'm really not proud of this at all, but I've only seen two of the films on this list.
    Those two films are Raiders Of The Lost Ark and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

    • SohoDriver

      Wow, you sure have a lot to get through! You have so many joys to discover though. If you're a true fan of cinema, I'd highly recommend you use his list as a starting point to an enlightening journey.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Ryguy815/ Ryguy815

        I will definitely be trying to see more films on this list. I just can't see myself watching all of them mainly because I can't sit through really old movies for some reason.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/navaneethks/ navaneethks

    Ouch. I've seen only 13. Maybe 14 but I can't remember one of the movie.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Beautifulm/ Beautifulm

    112

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fox/ Fox

    33. There's a couple more on the list that I've meant to see but haven't for whatever reason.

  • aza124

    I actually made a Letterboxd account to mark the ones that I have seen. So, my number is 34 which is about 9% of the list. Not terribly impressive by any means.

    There are plenty of movies on there that I have been meaning to see but never got a chance to. This summer break would be a good time to catch up I guess.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Xarnis/ Xarnis

    Ugh., only 53 for me. But considering I just became a "cinephile" last year, I suppose that's alright.

  • http://couchpotatodigest.blogspot.com Matt

    I've only seen 60, unfortunately. But a lot of my favorite films are on here, and I'll be consulting this list quite whenever I'm in the mood for a movie and can't decide what to watch.

  • http://cinemmaconfessions.com Gautam Anand

    I think I have seen around 150 ...

    Not surprised to see my favorites like Eternal Sunshine, Mulholland Dr,Three Colors Trilogy: Blue, White, Red, The Apu Triolgy, Breathless featuring in the list.. but I am really surprised but very happy to see some unconventional choices like Babel [Laremy, please notice] , 25th Hour, The Double Life of Veronique.

  • http://letterboxd.com/gman/ G-Man

    Only 35 lol...gotta see some more of these

  • http://www.twitter.com/GregDinskisk GregDinskisk

    I'm at 32... I own probably thirty or forty of some I haven't seen, so I'll definitely be doing that relatively soon, like this weekend. Also, thanks Jarrett Leahy for adding that Hulu link, nice find!

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Newbourne/ Newbourne

    Where's Knowing????

  • http://letterboxd.com/gman/ G-Man

    Surprised you've never gotten around to watching Saturday Night Fever, Brad. At least there's one I've seen that you haven't to make up for all the others I missed.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Newbourne/ Newbourne

      I was gonna say this right now. I'm equally as surprised you haven't seen Top Hat. Seriously, Brad? Fred Astaire's most famous film. His performance of "Dancing Cheek to Cheek" is timeless. I find this surreal. You should definitely go see it pronto.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

        I'm surprised it took this long for people to be surprised by what I haven't seen. ;)

  • Justin Ramires

    97. Feeling pretty good about that. Now it's time to finish off that list.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/AS/ AS

    167 - Not bad.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/AS/ AS

      Correction: 170

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/ken.atwell/ Kenneth

    217 out of 370 (breaking out stuff like the "Up" and "Apu" series into individual films). Respectable?

    I've created an IMDB list at
    http://www.imdb.com/list/qVlLY8H8tGU/?view=compact&sort=title:asc

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Chris138/ Chris138

    137. I guess that's not terrible.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Winchester/ Winchester

    I've seen 71 of them. I think I have seen a few more than that but if I don't clearly remember then I haven't included them.

    One thing Brad, if you get to Lawrence of Arabia make sure it's the cleaned up Blu Ray you watch of it. Utterly spectacular.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Winchester/ Winchester

      Ah, scratch that. I see you have.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Stinger/ Stinger

    I lost count of this many times and took me some ten minutes to count, but I've watched 204 of these.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Marcell/ Marcell

    I've seen 201. Quite surprised by that.

    Brad, you should watch What ever happened to Baby Jane? A great demented performance by Bette Davis.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Travis/ Travis

    Somewhere in the 70s. Not too bad

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/RonOnealFresh/ Ron Oneal Fresh

    43, I have 38 other films on the list I've got on DVD or BluRay .... That I have not watched yet.

    Yajimbo and Seven Samurai I tried watching many times, but haven't been able to get through them.

  • ishar kar

    130 for me need to see quite a few of the Asian classics like Tokyo Story. No one talked about After Hours on his list which I feel is Martin Scorsese's most underrated film and a true surreal gem.

    • SohoDriver

      I think Bringing out the Dead is his most underrated film, truly haunting and mindnumbingly good in places. A great companion piece to Taxi Driver, too.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Kessler/ Kessler

    I've only seen 55 of them. Looks like I've got some more watching to do.

  • profpain11

    I'm at 216, though probably need some rewatches.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/m1/ m1

    I've only seen 34.

  • Scott Molling

    144. Not super high, but on the bright side that means there's lots of Great Movies left for me to see. As I go through the Criterion Collection, I'll be seeing a lot more of these, I'm sure.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

      "[O]n the bright side that means there's lots of Great Movies left for me to see."

      That's the right attitude to have.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Adu/ Adu

    I have seen 59, I cant imagine myself going to most of those older onces, especially black and white. I just cant get into those.

    • enriquesanchez

      You're missing some of the GREATEST if you shut out the b&w's!

  • http://letterboxd.com/vchile/ VChile

    At first glance, Lettrboxd says I've seen 243 (66%). I'm sure quite a few deserve a rewatch. I'll be reviewing the whole list shortly.

    • http://letterboxd.com/vchile/ VChile

      Upon further review, 248 (68%). I don't foresee having the time for Shoah, so I'm doubtful about 100%. (Never say "Never" though.)

  • http://www.digitalkebab.com Shaun Heenan

    142 so far. I plan to work on it actively one day.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/pilgrimaze/ Pilgrimaze Pilgrimaze

    123. Actually 125 since The Apu Trilogy is 3 films.

    • http://cinemmaconfessions.com Gautam Anand

      And so is Three Colors.

  • SohoDriver

    That Hulu list contains a whole lot of films I'd love to see. Real kicker it's not available in England.

    As for me, I've only seen 101. Very disappointed with that, but I suppose I only recently expanded my tastes. Hopefully this time next year I will have doubled that number.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Randommovies/ Jake Hubbard

    167 for me. Thanks for posting this Brad. I actually made a spreadsheet of this list a few days ago because you mentioned it in the podcast and I was curious as to how many I had seen.

  • http://www.everyeliakazanmovie.blogspot.ca/ IngmarTheBergman

    263 here. I think that's decent.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/TravisC./ Travis C.

    230, and Aparajito from the Apu Trilogy. Brad, I also thought I'd throw together a list of my top 5 that you haven't seen, need to see:
    1)Out of the Past - A great noir from horror legend Jacques Tourneur starring the amazing Robert Mitchum.
    2)L'Atalante - A slightly fantastical romance, sadly the only feature length film Jean Vigo was able to make before his far-too-soon death.
    3)In a Lonely Place - Possibly the third best film centered around Hollywood to come out in 1950, but it's still a great one, this one's a great noir starring Humphrey Bogart.
    4)3 Women - Robert Altman doing David Lynch before Lynch was Lynch (Eraserhead came out the same year).
    5)The Bank Dick - One of, I believe 3 W.C. Fields that was on the list you published a year or so ago of Woody Allen's favorite films, I truly believe this was his best film, I truly believe Fields is one of the 5 funniest actors of all time.
    Hard leaving out films like Vivre sa Vie (My Life to Live), Stroszek, Top Hat, and Body Heat, but I had to stop somewhere.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/ringssinger/ ringssinger

    I've seen 88... Like many here I'm lacking mostly the older films, especially those in black and white. Lots to still see! Brad, I see they are only a few films I've seen that you haven't... interestingly enough they seem to all be musical or music-related. Just coincidence? Being a musician I know I'm way biased!

    I really loved Roger Ebert's critiques, blog and writing in general. Thanks so much for this!

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Ducard/ Ducard

    89 so there are more than a few to catch up on. I love the surprise inclusions of "A.I." &, especially, "Contact".
    I date my love of movies back to "2001" which I first saw in 1972 @ the age of 14.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fairportfan/ Fairportfan

      Oh, geeze.

      Thanks for making me feel old(er) - i saw 2001 on a Saturday liberty from Navy Electronictiger "A" School at Great Lakes.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fairportfan/ Fairportfan

        Oh, yeah - the month it was first released.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fan/ Fan

    42 for me a lot of good ones on here that I'm interested in seeing.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/DArtagnan/ DArtagnan

    I've seen 80 of them. Fewer than I was expecting when I started counting.

    Brad, out of curiosity, what do you think of The Adventures of Robin Hood?

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Elijah/ Elijah

    98, saw two of the three Apu trilogy films and I highly recommend them Brad. Some old movies it's just hard to actively sit down and force myself to watch like the "The Only Son" (Ozu traumatized me, I dunno if I can sit through Tokyo Story). Ebert's a good man so I'll keep working at it. :-)

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Fairportfan/ Fairportfan

    111.

    That number, of course counts some i fell asleep watching, walked out of or fled screaming.

    I spotted several films i SHOULD have seen by now and, somehow, haven't.

  • Buck Fuller

    Woo-hoo! I've seen 170 exactly, and (don't mean to brag, but) I'm only 15!

    • enriquesanchez

      Have you seen the light of day? :)

      • Buck Fuller

        Haha... yes. :P

      • Buck Fuller

        At first I thought 'Light of Day' is a movie...

  • Buck Fuller

    I'm going to miss Roger Ebert. He was a true movie lover. So sad that I'll never be able to reads his review of the latest film.

  • Benedict

    61 myself...I'm 22! 19 more of these I own though, I just need to watch, and 65 more are on my 'to watch/buy' list. So I'm about half-way there on the ones I actually am interested in seeing.

  • Wesley Hunt

    For anyone following the list, there is one more. Roger Ebert said on his Twitter Rust and Bone (2012) would be on the list, but he never added it proper.

    I think this choice is BS, especially with Argo and Life of Pi that same year.

    But to any completionists out there, take note of this one last film.

  • Zach Clark

    I'm at 279, only 84 to go. But I echo the sentiments of some posters, it can be a chore sometimes. And there are a few I have been unable to find, like A Woman's Tale and La Belle Noiseuse. But I agree with the Ebert, most of them are great. Rust and Bone really? Not even in my top 25 of that year.

  • enriquesanchez

    Only 192 of 363...over 52% - Of course there are MANY, I just have no interest in ever seeing. And MANY MORE which I consider absolutely priceless which are NOT here. A chacun son gout!

  • Cameron

    This week I finally finished this list, after a dozen years of chipping away at it. Whew! I had to utilize a lot of different resources to do so -- local libraries (it helps that I live in a college town and can check films out from the university library), Hulu Plus, Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Instant, Facets (they have a Netflix-style mail-rental service) and Alibris (had to buy 3 used on VHS).
    As an aside, it took me a while to realize "The Word" on this list was referring to "Ordet" on Ebert's list. I've always been curious about how people decide whether to use a film's native (foreign) title or the english translation.
