Found an old file from me and a pal BSing about what were the essential films everyone needed to see. The idea of this list is someone would do a double feature each weekend for a year, so this list is 104 movies in a kind of rough order, paired with a film that kind of complement each other.  Sometimes by genre, sometimes by era, sometimes by style, sometimes be content. 

There are lots of films listed that aren't masterpieces, but someone literate in film should see. There are lots of masterpieces that aren't on the list.

Is it wise to have someone watch a sort of spoof of Casablanca before watching the actual Casablanca?

Oh and you're pretty vague about the Kong/Zilla listing. Is it Kong 33/76/05 and then is it Godzilla 54/55/85/98/00/14?

 Added years (I meant the originals) 

You make a good point about the Casablancas.

Return of the Jedi(you are on a Star Wars forum and you don't include the whole OT?!?!  SHAME ON YOU!!!)

King Of Kings(the 1927 silent version)

High Noon

Stagecoach(the original)

The Shootist

True Grit(the original)

The Searchers

(gulp)Birth of a Nation(it is extremely racist and offensive but everyone should watch it one time)

"Son of Frankenstein" is a particular weakness of mine, as I think it's the absolute best of the Universal horror films. Completely subjective I admit.

The fun part of that particular list is that to add anything, you need to cut something. What would be removed to add four more Westerns? or Four more gangster films?

I think I had a list of 220 films to start with. 

I love Duck Soup, maybe I'll solve the problem of two Casablancas by replacing "Night at Casablanca" with that.

 Just not having Edward Van Sloan in it makes it better.

Nice list. Only one problem.

No Birdemic. Would make a perfect double with The Room.

THE ROOM IS MISSING

YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID

 We wrote this list before I saw The Room. 

I suppose it'd be better in the "Bad Movie Weekend." 

Should it replace PLAN 9 or MANOS?

His voice to me is one of the key ingredients of every October. I still hang on every syllable of his character expositions with baited breath just like I did as a child.Also, probably the only reason I got through Dracula's Daughter.

As far as the list, it's an impossible thing to merely nail down a cohesive list of titles to give people an all around glimpse of the medium. Everyone has their niche favorites, and many things will never be covered in the best-of's and textbooks in as good of detail as they should. Being a massive film historian, this was a huge challenge for me when I ran my own film society in college; in that I also tried to fill in all the huge gaps left by the pitiful classes.

Also, since this quickly became an American led medium it is always hard to pull back focus and examine many foreign features.

The best I can do is share the list of films I screened, lectured, discussed and programmed in college, otherwise I'd be here all day:

University of Tampa Film Appreciation Society Programming:
All titles were culled from the best available sources (DVD, VHS, Laserdisc or fan made preservations) The films were screened in the Department’s Screening Room A in their proper aspect ratios (1.33, 1.66, 1.78, 1.85, 2.35, 2.55 and 2.21:1) on a Epson projector integrated into a dedicated surround sound system with their original theatrical audio mixes (Mono, Stereo, Dolby Stereo, Dolby Stereo SR, Dolby 5.1, Dolby 5.1 EX, DTS 5.1, DTS 6.1 ES, PCM and audio derived from 70mm 6 track mixes). Each film was preceded by an informative speech either about the film, its makers, or the context of the time period and ended with a friendly chat over coffee.

The best experiences I ever had doing this in both high school and college were probably going in depth into Hitchcock's career, explaining the deeper facets of the Bond series and most of all when I ran the Puggo Grande for a mixture of students and faculty which turned into a packed room and many, many amazed people afterwards.

I vote for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It's the best Disney film IMO and indisputably groundbreaking.

Plus, it's my favorite, so there's that.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!
