I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but wouldn't it be interesting to see how the Top 250 changes over time?
Below is a snapshot of how it looks today. Since I blogged about them:
7 films have gone up in the ranking (including The Prestige, which gained an impressive 104 places).
6 have stayed the same (including Little Miss Sunshine, dammit!).
And the rest have gone down - including five films that have disappeared from the Top 250 altogether (Walk the Line, Star Wars III, Pirates I, Hero and - I'm particularly disappointed about this one - Almost Famous).
My mission is about 14% complete...
