Even that's tough because you forget about the ones you either don't own or are not yet available on DVD that you love. So looking at your DVD rack doesn't necessarily work.

yeah guess so, top 50 would have been good, but probably would hav taken away from the general emphasis & stopped ppl from having to think too hard about WHAT films the REALLy like

Looks eerily similar to the AFI Top 100. Nice list though.

Can't say I was a fan of Gone With the Wind. That movie never did it for me. But I'm not going to make fun of you for it. To each his own, right?

I do love Casablanca though. Great flick.

I think it little different. They had Citizen Kane 1st for example. It never did anything for me. Even it looked the same as the AFI list please beleave that just went by how I felt. If that happens to agree with AFI list then so be it . It don't matter to me either way.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I just noted that when I was reading it, I was reminded of the AFI list. You have good taste.
