Here it is, 1,000 movies Edgar Wright calls his favorites. It's fascinating, for all the reasons such a list would be. The surprising inclusions (The Kentucky Fried Movie!) and the perennial favorites not listed (wither Rocky?) are all very interesting, but the main sense one gets is the depth of passion for film Edgar Wright has, which, while not particularly surprising, is still pretty cool.
The thing that blows me away the most though is that it's 1,000 movies. I'd be hard pressed to come up with a list of one thousand favorite movies. Hell, 1,000 movies that I've seen would be tough, just from a memory retention stand point. I may actually give it a try, just to see if I can do it.
I've seen about half of these, which is a bit bush league, frankly. I'd like to get my numbers up, and this seems like a decent checklist to work off of.
