another 100 best movies list

Here's the link: http://movies.msn.com/100-favorite-f...llery/feature/

Two things stand out. First, it's really a hundred best movies men 18-49 remember. Second, as these things go, it's not very culty or eccentric, nor is it fixated either on trendy critics or the box office.

Re: another 100 best movies list

this is probably the first movie list where I have seen most of those movies. However, I have no idea why people love the Wizard of Oz so much. I HATE that movie.

Re: another 100 best movies list

Good list, and likewise, made up mostly of movies I've actually seen. Some of the placements of one film over the other are strange, but that's almost always the case with such lists.

Kudos to them for also putting the entire list on one page instead of exclusively making you click through to each individual entry, which, on a list this long usually would make me just skip it.

Re: another 100 best movies list

For those who hate THE WIZARD OF OZ, I think THE SOUND OF MUSIC's much more hateable. Even one of the co-stars despised it. (And it appears as if STAR TREK is just about the newest film in this list of 100. Yeesh. But no sign of ALIEN or THE EXORCIST. Yeesh.)

Here are the surviving films which overlap in my top 100, with their approximate positions.



4. The Wizard of Oz
70ish. North By Northwest
29. The Fellowship of the Ring
60ish.The Searchers
44. Star Wars — The Empire Strikes Back
46. Raiders of the Lost Ark
14. Jaws
39. The Breakfast Club
12. 2001: A Space Odyssey
40ish. Blade Runner
15. Aliens
43. Planet of the Apes (1968
16. Star Wars: Ep. IV
3. The Godfather (45th place in the other????)
77. Terms of Endearment
19. Apocalypse Now
18. Die Hard
68. Broadcast News
42. Pulp Fiction
1. Psycho
17. A Fish Called Wanda
94. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
84. Excalibur
20. West Side Story
45. Monty Python and the Holy Grail[/COLOR]
13,387. Star Trek (2009
37. Tootsie
29. Fight Club

I hate Oz, but honestly I've never really seen all of The Sound of Music. Just looking at it, it looks like its not my kind of movie, and the parts of it I have seen haven't really wanted to make me see more of it.
Fortunately I was never required to see The Sound of Music, but The Wizard of Oz was forced upon me several times as a child.
And yeah, WTF happened to Alien?

Re: another 100 best movies list

Good question. That's my number two.

When the AFI chose their first ''best 100'' in the 90s they had no room for ALIEN or THE EXORCIST either.

Hmm. The Big Lebowski and Star Trek XI are higher than Seven Samurai? This list is a bit eccentric, to say the least.

I'm not a big fan of it either, although I recognize it as being "good". I'm pretty sure it's not the best movie ever.

Re: another 100 best movies list

I never could get why the 2009 reboot's always called STAR TREK XI. Since it's taking place long before the events of TMP, it'll always be STAR TREK 0.5 to me.

I may be the in the minority here, but OZ kicks GWTW's ass. Its scope is smaller but makes up for it in emotional power.

Oh.

George Lucas is going to have to do some serious renumbering in that case. Now we'll have to buy his special editions AGAIN.

Lucas explicitly used a different numbering system (retroactively, in the case of the first film). The Star Trek movies have been referred to with sequential numbering.

Re: another 100 best movies list

STAR TREKS ''Seven through Eleven'' have been referred to by their directors, writers and their studio as GENERATIONS, FIRST CONTACT, INSURRECTION, NEMESIS and simply STAR TREK. Only the fans use the Romans for the last five. I can see doing it unofficially for the 7th-10th chapters, but since the whole point of {Chapter 11} was a reboot, and STAR TREK takes less time to type than STAR TREK 11.....

Guess I'm obsessing about it because my father was a proofreader. Anyway, so far, only the FRIDAY the 13th series has shown the integrity and the guts to officially title their films by 7s, 8s and 9s. (SAW ''7'' being SAW 3-D originally. I have a feeling PARANORMAL ACTIVITY will continue FRIDAY's proud tradition.)

Re: another 100 best movies list

Women can contribute to a list for men 18-49.
It's very chauvinist to imply they can't.

As these things go, this is a very good list, but it really does seem to be aimed more at men, most notably the disinterest in black and white. Also the resolute rejection of so-called weepers. Terms of Endearment for one could fit in. And I think one symptom, picking The Sound of Music over Cabaret.

How is a "disinterest in black and white" indicative of gender bias? (For the record, I count 21 films on the list in black and white.)
