350!! :circle:
Never thought this project would last this long.

Btw, besides cocoa and me, who else has seen them all? I see Armoreska is missing 4. He might catch up.

I have the Flicker Alley blu-ray of this. Looks okay. L'Inhumaine has the most gorgeous set designs and really is a futuristic movie in almost every sense of the word - except for the story, one of jilted love, that one is fairly pedestrian. Worth seeing for the visuals for sure.

I stopped prioritizing the FOTW project when we switched formats. There are just too many films I want to see, and these were hit and miss for me. I still watchlist most of them, though, and intend to see them at some point. And I will still comment on the ones I've already seen. Currently 6 dislikes and 3 favourites, but 2 of those faves were from before they became FOTW. If something really interesting pops up, I may watch it that week, but I no longer feel pressure/obligated to try and watch each one.

I'm at 133/350 (38%) with another 178 watchlisted (51%), which adds up to a hypothetical 89% of films I'll eventually see. But I think it's more realistic that I'll hover between 50 and 60% in the long run, especially if this project continues for a few more years.

Fun fact: I'd only seen 2 of these films before the project began (Margaret's Museum & For a Lost Soldier), including one of which I nominated for FOTW. I think I've seen about a dozen or two additional films from the list before they became FOTWs, but I can't be bothered to sort out which ones.
