Welcome, peoples! The Top 100 Project stars married film fans Ryan & Bev Ellis. Our mission every Monday is was to review the 123 movies on the American Film Institute’s 1998 and 2007 “100 Years, 100 Movies” lists. We are watching watched them & recording recorded podcasts about them chronologically. That’s enough double-striking. You get the point. We started with 1915′s The Birth Of A Nation in March 2013 and ended in December 2015 with 2001′s The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring.

Check out the “T100P Podcasts” section for our thoughts & theories about classics such as: Gone With The WindCitizen Kane, Casablanca, It’s A Wonderful Life, A Streetcar Named Desire, VertigoPsychoDr. StrangeloveThe Graduate2001: A Space Odyssey, The GodfatherChinatown, The Godfather Part IIJawsTaxi DriverAnnie HallStar WarsApocalypse NowRaging BullRaiders Of The Lost ArkBlade RunnerGoodfellasSchindler’s ListForrest GumpPulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption, along with 97 others.

Since all those classics have been done for many years, what do we do now? Well, we spent 4 and a half years doing “The Next 100 Project” (or the Next 115 Project, Next 152 Project, etc). These are a random assortment of classics, often with an anniversary in play (whether it be 5 years or 20 years or even 80 years). We did 199 of those and that numbering convention got tiresome, so starting with Apollo 13, we now call this “The Ellises’ Analysis”. December will feature gabs about Cast Away, Gremlins and The Hateful Eight.

Our spin-off podcast, “Scoring At The Movies”, is no longer on this site. You can find those “Chris ‘n’ Ryan” episodes in all the usual podcast places (Stitcher, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Deezer, etc).

We’ve also got a series of “Now Playing Project” podcasts with timely-at-the-time-we-discussed-them reviews of Oscar-winning movies: 12 Years A SlaveHerDallas Buyers Club and Gravity. What do you think of those pictures now that several years have passed? Did we have it right or did we have it very wrong?

So rip into our many thoughts and theories about old movies. This is effectively a blog, so you can comment on any page at your leisure. We are very open to feedback, including your own thoughts and theories.
