1,216 Movies You Must See (Before You Die)

Film buff Jonathan Keogh, put together an extraordinary 10min supercut video that actually should be called 1,216 Movies You Must See (Before You Die), because Keogh added 215 extra titles not featured in Steven Jay Schneider’s ultimate cinema experience book called: 1,001 Movies You Must See (Before You Die). Get the already 1.5 million copies sold book here. Keogh: “This epic little monster took me one year to the date to finish. I tried my best to make it an overpowering exercise in film. In another 130 years, this will be a completely different list." The Video was uploaded to YouTube (786,069) on February 2nd of 2014 and November 7th 2014 on Vimeo (35.7K) and the Animated graphics in the title sequences were done by EE Seitz. There are currently 323,123 feature film titles in the IMDB database and according to V Renée NFS’s Managing Editor: "the average film is 2.16 hours long. This means that there are 697,945 hours worth of cinematic goodness out there to experience, which means that there are more hours of film than there are in the average lifespan to watch them.” Read more. More: List of 1,000 movies to see before you die from the UK’s The Guardian newspaperIMDB Top 250 in 2 ½ Minutes, Scrapbook.
