Decades worth of movies all talked about in about 80 minutes (either one episode or split into two, depending I reckon where and how you watch it)? Well that isn't an easy task. It is made easier since the focus lies on US movies. So you won't see a lot of international movies that are equally as a amazing or even in some cases better.
But how could you pack all this in, such a short time! Yes 12 episodes that run 40 minutes (or 6 with double the time, again as stated above) sounds like a lot of time, but it isn't. At it goes by like that. Because it is fun to watch. Yes you may know most if not all the movies, depending on your film knowledge. That doesn't mean you won't find some hidden gems or learn something new about a movie or two.
Having said that, of course this can't completely cover the McCarthy era, tell us everything about Citizen Kane or any other movie you deem needs that respect. The MCU is done in a minute or so to give you a more recent example of movies that made quite the impact (no matter what you may think of them).
Also be aware that there may be a spoiler or two (I didn't count so don't quote me on that) ... just in case you were wondering. I might get back to the list this gives me - funnily enough I did watch some of the entries recently. Also do not feel "shamed" if there are movies here that you don't like ... we all have different tastes. So just because a movie made an impact (or two or three ...), doesn't mean you have to think it's the best thing ever ... or one of them.
So sit back, relax and enjoy some of your favorites (to come) ...
