    I love to make lists and I thought that there may be some others out there who also like to do the same.
    I would like to know what you 100 favorite films are (English language only - there is a thread devoted to Foreign language films already). Unlike the AFI list, there are no restrictions and no pressure to include the recognized classics. If you adore all of Pauly Shore's movies go ahead and put them in your list. Hate silent films - don't put them in. Can't stand Citizen Kane, give it the boot.
    You don't have to rank the entries, I'm only interested in your list in total. If I get enough people contributing, I will track the results. Also, please present your list alphabeticaly as it will help me total the entries. Oh, and if you can only make a partial list, I'll take it but it must have at least 50 entries. Thanks!
    Here's my present list (it is constantly changing):
    12 Angry Men

    If it looks like a poll, walks like a poll, and talks like a poll...

    Good post, Jay, and it will fit in nicely at its new home!

    Well, not being a person who routinely constructs "Top" lists, 100 seems a bit daunting. Plus, some of my favourites are not in English.

    I will offer you a top 10, taking into account ommission of non-English films:

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    Vertigo

    The General

    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Dumbo

    The Searchers

    The Last Waltz

    The Third Man

    The Philadelphia Story

    The African Queen

    That's a great list Brian! Thanks!
    There are loads of films on your list that almost made mine. I actually forgot to add King Kong to my list as well as a James Bond film (it will probably be Godfinger). I will have to update my list with these 2 films as soon as I can figure out what to delete.
    I'm glad to see that you're also a fan of Dogfight & Ruby in Paradise. These are 2 of the best Independent films of the 90's and really deserve a DVD relaese.
    And I really glad to see Plan 9 on your list. That's the ultimate example of the difference between a greatest film list & a favorite film list.

    Jack,
    Peter Hyams?
    I made a list years ago, just when I was on the cusp of becoming a full-blown cinema lover. I still like all of the films on the list but I feel it no longer portrays my tastes in an accurate fashion. In addition, since I made the list, I've gone to college as a film major and gotten TCM as a part of my cable. Who knows how many countless classics I've seen in the interim. Just thinking about redoing an accurate list gives me a headache.
    As a concession, here's my subjective Top Ten:
    1.The Empire Strikes Back (and the rest of the Star Wars saga thus far)
    2. The Godfather
    3. The Godfather Part II
    4. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    5. 2001: A Space Odyssey
    6. Raging Bull
    7. Lawrence of Arabia
    8. Sunrise
    9. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
    10. Saving Private Ryan

    Okay, I made a list. Please note for the record that these are my 100 favorite films, AND I consider them the 100 greatest films ever. If you're asking yourself "Does that mean this guy thinks Son of Flubber is actually greater than Citizen Kane?" then allow me to say "Indeed I do." Now you may be saying to yourslef "this guy is a real dumbass," to which I retort "double dumbass on you," so put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    Sadly, a whopping 24% of these are either not available on DVD, or available only with a Modified Apect Ratio.
    On the list I see a lot of actors with 3 titles, a few with 4 (Cary Grant, Marlon Brando, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Newman, Al Pacino), but only one (that I noticed) with 5: Steve Buscemi.
    Edited: Oops, I forgot Treasure of the Sierra Madre. To make room, I bumped American Psycho.
    Edited again: Added Noises Off and bumped Westworld.
    Edited a third time: Forgot Raising Arizona, bumped Boogie Nights. I should have worked on this list for a month before I posted it. :b

    My list is on the way. I usually don't like lists, but 100 titles is sufficiently large to be a good indication of what people like.
    Some surprising observations. One title I didn't expect to see in almost all lists is Raiders of the Lost Ark, but quite a few have it. I'm glad, because it has forced me to reconsider a title that probably would have escaped me. I'm also surprised to see Moulin Rouge a few times, though no one said which one, as well as Glengarry Glen Ross in the last couple lists.
    Kudos to Scott who, at least as far as I can tell, is the first to include Miller's Crossing. You folks don't know what you are missing. I guess it's just that not too many people have seen this one. Of course, the fact that it came out well after the 40s seems to virtually eliminate it from the running for Brook. [​IMG]

    If this was a top 200 list, Miller's Crossing would certainly be on mine, as would several others found on lists other than my own.
