Roger Ebert validates my method of filling my Netflix queue, by using this blog's favorite book.
In the Orange County Register, Ebert says, "The real usefulness of...a book like '1,001 Movies You Must See Before You Die,' is that it provides good ideas for DVD rentals. I have, by the way, seen 943 of the 1,001 movies, and am carefully rationing the remaining titles to prolong my life."
I'm not surprised that he's seen most of them, but I am amused that he bothered to count how many he's seen. That's such a movie-geek thing to do.
