Criterion Collection Films

Hi there I have decided to update my viewing habits by adding a Criterion Movie here and there to be more well rounded in films. With the Streaming Service Live I wanted to keep track of what films I watched. Enter me for the past hour:

Yes I would like to change the “: us :” to :us: however I have not found a simple way to do that. Also adding an IMDB link or some cover art would make it stand out (like this https://letterboxd.com/jbutts15/list/the-complete-criterion-collection/detail/page/12/)

  1. Anyone interested in helping me edit the template? I threw it on GDrive for ease of sharing but have a local copy that I am going to work with.

  2. Any good starting points on the Criterion Collection to start watching, outside of Robocop?

Find a common factor and then watch all films with that common factor. Pick a great director and watch all their films. Pick a great actor and watch all their films. Pick something fun like watching every Godzilla movie or every Zatoichi movie. After you finish, pick another one.

The site has a section with collections where they make it very easy to do exactly this. For example:

You are going to have to venture into other services, and perhaps the high seas, because their collection is not complete. So when you are done watching a collection, go reference IMDB and see if there are any that you missed. Did the actor appear in anything that wasn’t on Criterion? Probably yes.

Here’s my picks from the Criterion channel front page for collections.

Also they have a ton of noir films so you could deep dive on that genre.
