(Ad - Gifted) For film lovers. The 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster! - Review!

On a Saturday evening Stu, Becky (my teenager) and I always watch a film together. She's at an age now where she can watch most of the films that Stu and I do. Sometimes we watch new releases and sometimes we go way back and watch some classic films. Lots of times we can never think of a film to watch so something to give us a little inspiration was always going to be welcomed.

The box that the 100 movies poster came in.

The 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster compiles 100 of the best films ever made from around the world and allows you to scratch the title off as you watch the film, unveiling a powerful image related to the film. It's a great way to keep track of what you've been watching.

The poster arrived in a triangular tube, the postman actually thought it was a giant Toblerone. It is a average poster size and the quality of the paper/thin card is fantastic.

There is a really good variety of movies from many genres, ages and some I would have never have thought of watching like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Miss Sunshine and Rosemary's Baby. Then there is the one's I know word for word like Dirty Dancing, Toy Story and Snatch. 

A poster with 100 movies listed

 I have probably watched about half of the films listed but some I haven't seen for years like Jaws, Alien and The Silence of the Lambs. There are others which I have never seen at all like Star Wars. I guess Stu will get my wish of me watching them. Who knows I might even enjoy them.

I am in two minds about watching films like Snatch, A Clockwork Orange and Se7en with Becky because of the violence and the language but she's 18 this year and is a big fan of horror films so I don't think any of these will scare or phase her. It also gives me a good chance to introduce her to iconic films like Blade Runner, Ghostbusters and The Green Mile.

The full 100 movies poster

I think this is going to be a lot of fun, working our way through the 100 films. I did already scratch a few off that we have recently watched just to see what it was like to scratch them and see what was beneath the silver. They were easy enough to scratch, I used a 2 pence piece.

The images when which were revealed when I scratched the silver off were brilliant. They really do sum up the films. Andy on the bottom of the shoe did make me smile, the girl in front of the bus made me chuckle and the red and blue dots did make me think, if you know, you know! hehehe

Out of the 100 films there isn't many for younger kids but I am sure Ellie will join us to watch one's like The Lion King, Wall-E, Up and E.T.

 If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the movie buff in your life, look no further than The 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster which is available from The Personalised Gift Shop for £12.99.

I was sent the 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster free of charge in exchange for this blog post.


  1. I really like the idea of a scratch off watched film poster. Good prompt to see old films again. I suspect there might be a few that I wouldn't want to watch. You've made me want to watch the matrix again. #mmbc

    1. It is a lot of fun and gives us an idea of films to watch that we've forgotten about.
      I have actually watched all 3 of the Matrix over the past week. hehehe x

  2. This is such a fabulous idea! We often spend ages trying to decide what to watch and watch trailers first as well! Fun to scratch movies off the poster when you have watched them too :o)


    1. I think it's a genius idea.
      Sometimes in the time we have settled on something to watch it's usually time for bed. lol x

  3. I got this for Christmas!! I haven't scratched any off yet, but there are quite a few I need to do #MMBC

    1. I love it. I am finding us watching films just to scratch them off. hehehe x

  4. This sounds like such a cool idea. I'd like one for the hundred greatest Rom Coms!!! #MMBC

    1. That would be such a great idea. They could do one for each type of film. Horror, comedy and so on x
