Essential Films Bechdel Test

I recently found out about the Bechdel Test, I was interested in how many of my Essential Films passed the test. So I used the Bechdel Test Movie List to cross referance. I did some horable html dumps and scripting to do this, after I finished I found out that they provide an API that can search based on IMDB id . I currently have 79 films in my list of these 64 has rating listed, or 81% of them.
