The list represents what the staff at Yahoo! Movies feels represents the 100 essential films to see before you die.
"To choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic that you absolutely have to see."

"It’s one thing to make a list of movies that are essential. But it’s something else to make a list of movies that are funny. So after some heated debates, a shouting match or two and at least one pie fight, the staff at Yahoo! Movies presents this list of the "100 Funniest Movies to See Before You Die.”
We didn’t necessarily choose the “best” comedies out there but those we see as the funniest. An adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale,” for instance, might technically be a comedy although it’s seriously lacking in yuks. Meanwhile “Pulp Fiction” – which is on the list -- might not seem like an obvious choice, but provides more belly laughs in it than anything Kevin James has ever done.
Anyway, some of these movies you might have seen, others you might not have heard of, but all of them are pretty darned funny."
Premiere Magazine (in its April 2006 issue), in an article written by numerous authors, published a list of the 100 Greatest (Movie) Performances of All-Time, to celebrate the best movie performances in film history. The defining performances were excerpted and abbreviated from the article.
Facts and Commentary About the List:
The authors described the movie performances: "They made us laugh, they made us cry....We love great movies the most - we feel the most electric connection to them - when the actors look out from that big screen, and hook into us. They make us believe that they're the people they're playing and that we, as viewers, have a genuine stake in what's coming next."
The world of cinema interest is ruled initially by actors, and secondly by directors. They always overshadow the other technical works in cinema, but for somebody getting into film, aspects like cinematography or editing are just as important to them.
However, the role of the sound designer and the importance of sound design are relegated to a secondary position, ignoring how essential they are in building a film. The mixing stage is the process capable of providing tension in any thriller, and the Foley recording is the process capable of inventing sounds for a film.
One of the reasons the sound design is discreet is the tradition of making it “invisible”. A classical film would tell us that a good sound design is the one an audience is unable to perceive. But with these 20 examples, we can see that sound design can be a creative and powerful tool capable of filling a film with different emotions, or even changing the speech behind the film.
