Film Achievements Unlocked

Modern video games in the age of social media often award tiny graphical badges when players complete certain goals. These badges, often given whimsical names, are then posted on the player's gamer identity on the social media platform of their choice.

Setting the bar low for personal goals, I've started creating my own little achievements for filmographies completed. Here's what I have so far:

Achievement Unlocked: Retcon-Futurism
You have seen all the films of George Lucas.

Achievement Unlocked: I'm King of the World
You have seen all the films of James Cameron.

Achievement Unlocked: Laugh So You Won't Cry
You have seen all the films of Wes Anderson.

Achievement Unlocked: That Gum You Like is Coming Back in Style
You have watched all the films of David Lynch.

Achievement Unlocked: Captain Quirk
You have watched all the films of Paul Thomas Anderson.

I'm pretty close to finishing the works of John Carpenter, Robert Zemeckis, Ed Wood, Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, Sergio Leone, David Cronenberg, John Glen, Peter Jackson and the Coen brothers. It should be fun coming up with cute names for those achievements.
