Top 250 Films

Last year I canceled my cable subscription and since then one of the things I’ve been working on is to catch up on my film knowledge. It was severely lacking. I’ve been a Netflix member for years, so you would think that there wouldn’t be such a glaring void. I have my work cut out for me.
