I beat Ebert!!
As of June 12, 2005 Roger Ebert has seen 943 of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die.
As of April 24, 2007, I have seen 944.
In other news, Roger Ebert's 9th Annual Overlooked Film Festival (aka Ebertfest) started in Champaign, Illinois today, and I'm sad that I can't be there. Ebert is being a trooper and showing up, despite his health problems.
P.S. I couldn't have done it without Netflix. I have 39 left in my Netflix queue.
P.P.S. I am using only the 2002 edition of the book.
