"A Categorical Chart of 1,500 Must-See Movies

A massive mapping of cinematic genres (with representative movies for each category), this big-screen behemoth is fully customizable to reflect your personal tastes—just grab a pencil and fill in the circle next to each film to mark it as “Loved It,” “Liked It,” or merely “Watched It”! Whether your prefer Period Pieces, Musicals, or tales of Haunted Dolls, there’s something here for cinephiles of every sort."

Taken from the Pop Chart poster.

Films are listed by section included in the chart. The sections are ordered roughly from top left to bottom right on the poster. Please note that the section that a film is listed in may be spoiler. Some categories are spread among two or more sections (such as Sports in Drama (328-339), Based on a True Story (413-426) and Comedy (449-460). I don't know why there are more than 1,500 films in the list.
