Hal and Dee at the Movies

I've been a film fan for years, mostly exploring the wonderful worlds of genre cinema but, since moving to the States, I've been exploring much further.

After realising that I'd only seen two out of every five films on the IMDb Top 250 list, I started schooling myself in the history of motion pictures, using that list as a key focus. Later I started working from other Top 100 lists too, each giving me a grounding in a particular era or genre. Of course, the internet being what it is, most of those lists aren't online any more, so I've posted them here, with various details including IMDb links.

You'll also find other material here, such as my early blogs on film and links to where I post reviews today, reference pages about award winners in the US and Hong Kong, some movie quotes quizzes I put together and also indexes for DVD box sets with IMDb links.
