And The Matrix does? I'm just saying some of the placements past like 600 were strange.

Plus I've just spent the last two weeks in Canada away from the compie.

I'm missing 34 out of those top 100 btw.
Congratulations on your engagement!!!!

Or Starship Troopers. Like Laz said, they pull from too many sources that seem a little less legit than others.

Starship Troopers is only bizarre because of the lack of Robocop as I said before. The Matrix deserves a spot I'd say, but I'm a bigger fan of that film than most these days it seems, so

Spent the better part of the night organizing this list into a double-set of Flixster lists. That'll serve some purpose somewhere down the line.

I hope.

Just saw this. I did pretty good on the American films, but sorely deficient on the foreign ones. Spielberg seems to be over-rated on this list, and it seems certain directors had pretty high rankings regardless of the film. I guess some of the sources are a bit questionable(maybe biased), judging by previous posts. ET at 137, but Star Wars only 110 and Good the Bad and the Ugly 187. Ferris Bueller, Bridges of Madison County don't belong. Das Boot does. And Robocop does belong if your gonna include so many later slasher films.

If Goodfellas and LA Confidential are rated so high, then you gotta find space for Public Enemy or G Men or Angels with Dirty Faces, etc.....

Mr Smith goes to Washington but not Meet John Doe. Pretty much the same film

As a kid, I never paid much attention to the directors. I never realized Howard Hawks made so many great comedies. And that I liked so many by John Ford. I think the only director I was really aware of as a youngster was Hitchcock. Probably cuz his films were shown more frequently and we liked the scary mysteries. And of course his tv show helped. He is well represented here.

Glad to see a few Jerry Lewis listed. He had a pretty good 10 year run.

Pink Flamingos, Dazed and Confused, The princess Bride, Spinal Tap but no Saturday Night Fever.

I think many early screwball/slapstick comedies get over-looked and the genre is usually represented by It Happened One Night or Bringing Up Baby and a few others. But there are so many of similar quality from the 30's and 40's that just don't get the love. Squeeze in an early Shirley Temple. Or how 'bout Laurel & Hardy.

Nice to see You Can't Take It With You and Emerald Forest make it.

Well, just a few thoughts...

I know now why you cry. But it is something I can never do.
