Let's face it: That much touted American Film Institute list of a few years ago was one of the laziest exercises in modern list-making since Entertainment Weekly began publication. The average person could sneeze out a hundred films in their sleep and be reasonably assured of duplicating 75% of the AFI's stunningly mainstream cinematic enumeration.

The CONELRAD 100, on the other hand, is a highly specialized and, in some cases downright obscure, round-up by and for the Atomic film connoisseur Many of these titles you may never have heard of. But that's what makes this list DIFFERENT, educational and, above all, FUN.

Over the past four years, the editors of CONELRAD spent numerous hours watching and researching 300 motion pictures with Atomic and/or Red Scare/Cold War themes. From this collection we revved up the particle separator and painstakingly pared the list down to a clean 100.

But unlike the AFI's collection, this list is not cast in stone. We invite spirited debate and submissions of Atomic tites we may have missed. CONELRAD will soon be presenting a fully searchable database of ALL three hundred films that we came across in determining the big 100. Eventually, we will repost a democratically elected 100, but for now we offer these films for fiery discussion purposes. So have at it!
