Yeah you kinda need to either be a Brit or have toured our country in beer to do well on that one.

Pretty sure I'd score 0 on that. Though I do have one collaboration beer between our Adnams and your Yeastie Boys on my list.

9 for me. Didn't realise Black Sheep had that many beers...or Hobgoblin for that matter.I drink hobgoblin gold very regularly, always having some in the house lately.

Suggest you try Wainwright, a lovely beer!

I've got 19 so far myself. Not actually sure on the UK availability of some of these, especially the older they are. There's some German Expressionism films I put on there that I've had my fingers crossed for a while that Masters of Cinema can get a hold of for a restored blu-ray release with translated intertitles. They did The Golem (1920) not that long ago which I've picked up and that's an excellent silent horror movie.

Just passed 250000 users of my lists on LC. Cool

Still stuck at #49 on the list makers chart though. I'm a few hundred off breaking #48, but every time I get close LC seems to share like three lists from the same user and give them a massive boost and I'm suddenly lucky not to knocked out of the top 50. Unhappy

Keep trying to think up new ideas that may be interesting. One of these days LC may deign to share one of my actual metal lists which was what the profile was meant to all be about originally. But I'm not holding my breath on that. The best used metal lists remains the original Trad list currently @ 412 users. 

Here's another recent one that isn't doing too well. I guess it's too niche. But hey, you all can get a small look around my home county.

40 out of 70 for me. I saw many of those old black and white ones from the 30's in particular when I was teenager and there was always a Saturday night double bill starting around 11pm. I've probably seen a few more to be honest that didn't leave a lasting impression on me.

0. Embarrassed

Yeah I don't know pretty much anything about movies of that age. 

Recommend me one to sell me exploring this kind of thing.

I haven't seen many of those, but I can easily recommend Nosferatu. Probably the most overall foreboding feeling movie I've seen, and it being silent just increases that.

If you're specifically after a horror film of any age I'll second the Nosferatu rec. If you're prefer not to go for a silent film though then a couple of gems are Them! and The Thing From Another World. I'd especially go for the latter if you've seen Carpenter's version. I made the mistake recently of selling my copy on which I quickly regretted and ended up rebuying it. Maybe I was subconsciously looking for an excuse to upgrade to blu-ray. 

If you do decide to go for Nesferatu make sure it's a quality restoration with translated intertitles - there's some rough versions out there I believe. I myself own the Masters of Cinema blu-ray release which is probably as good as you'll get for a movie that old.

I'm open to pretty much anything but horror is one of my usual go to genres for movies. My knowledge of old movies, not counting Disney classics I grew up with on VHS, is limited to maybe half a dozen films right now. I'm open silent movies (always felt I should watch Metropolis for sci-fi movies - ironically Lang's M is one of the six I know I have seen that's from before 1960, but I haven't seen Metropolis), so I probably look into options for Nosferatu.

I actually just found a decent copy on YouTube if you don't wish to buy it. Not sure on the legality. It claims to be the public domain version but it's clearly not based on a comparison site I just looked at.

Oh and you must indeed watch Metropolis if you like sci-fi. But it's even more important to make sure you get a restored version with that one (even then a lot of the film is damaged beyond the ability to repair). You need the Masters of Cinema DVD or Blu-Ray to make sure you get as much as the movie as is still around to see. And be careful not to get the older Masters of Cinema DVD from before a lot of the missing material was found. A sensational movie even with the extant damage to the film.
