My preliminary list has 41 entries. I too have to edit it down and hope I find the time to collect screencaps for a proper post. Here is a sneak peek on Letterboxd for the curious.
I haven't added you to the Letterboxd list yet because I want to get word from you that you're done.

2016: I've watched 235 of 284 for 83%
2017: I've watched 148 of 180 for 82%

206 titles now and I'm holding at 82%

2017: I've watched 175 of 234 for 75%

but I'm watching The Iceman Cometh very soon and Nothing Personal is high on my Watchlist.
