Films I've seen

by dominic_ashman | created - 18 Jul 2012 | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public

When I first created this list back in 2012, I hadn't seen many films, and realised I needed to do something about that. Before I made the conscious decision to watch as many films as possible, I made this list so I could keep track of what I've seen. Since then the list has more than doubled in size and is still growing.
