AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies - 10th Anniversary Edition

AFI's annual film countdown is on tonight, from 8-11PM on CBS. It's different every year....top 100 comedies, top 100 love stories, top 100 quotes, top 100 thrillers, etc etc.

The last time they did just the straight up top 100 films was ten years ago....so now they are doing it again, with ten more years worth of films to choose from.

I always like these AFI countdowns. They're always very enjoyable.

Yeah, but the numbers 1-10 are always a let down; at least if you're not a fan of Citizen Kane & Gone With The Wind. I'd like to see Die Hard and Tommy Boy crack the top ten

that sounds.... tiring

I can barely figure out a top 10, but 100? Damn, I'd probably melt down after 50 or so...

I try to log every movie I've seen and rate it, just so I know what I need to see and whatnot.

I haven't seen all of it, but I've seen bits and pieces

I'm probably going to expand it to 150, there are too many great movies being left out.

Good list, LMP. I will have a good portion of the same on mine.

You just had the sitting around on your hard drive though, didn't you? Just waiting for a thread like this

Mine will take some time. It's easy listing a ton of movies I love, but it's putting them in order that's going to give me a migraine.

I really did have it there, I'm not even kidding.

It's hard organizing. I can do a Top 5 and that's it.

Knowing that this is going on of course those senior citizens on the AFI board will once again put Citizen Kane as the #1 film followed by Casablanca and Gone with the Wind. yawn.
