A Pictorial History of the Movies: The Master List

So, we’ve just finished my first go-round of A Pictorial History of the movies.

The goal here was, since I do a Pic of the Day every day, to find something cool to do with it. I came up with the idea of going through the entire history of film, from the very first films until now, year by year, and picking only one movie per year. Which is a pretty impossible task.

But I did it, I managed it, and I even wrote something up for each movie along the way. So now I’m compiling everything into one giant list. Mostly so I can use it for reference the next time I want to try this to prevent repeats from happening.
