No where near enough weed smoking. Every college-bro in the 90s and 2000s would find this completely uninspiring.

Despite what the comments say this is a perfectly fine standard sports film. Its plot is basically a bad news bears or mighty ducks story but is also making a statement against racism, sexism, and religious bigotry all of which seem pretty standard things we should all be against.

The one thing this film has convinced me of though is that field hockey is a really weird looking sport and having all your athletes hunched over while they play looks weird and makes it really hard to look bad ass.

I think they really killed a snake for that shot.

While this movie is head and shoulders above Old this still felt pretty contrived and overly ponderous. I think the most interesting part of the movie would have been the next 6 months of these characters lives.

This one really reminded me a bit of Hitchcock's Vertigo.

I really love how nearly every film on this list has a link attached. This is fantastic.

This one feels like a lega-sequel to Cruel intentions with all the good and bad that that would imply.

Jason Statham was miscast...couldn't pull off darker Michael Mann type character...kinda dragged the movie down. Not sure who would've been better maybe a Karl Urban or Thomas Jane?

This is the worst check on the site that I have found so far.

This movie is bizarre to watch today. While I can't deny the script is fun and adventurous like an Indiana Jones script it's a film that nearly checks all the racist boxes for modern audiences. Blackface...check. Colonial masters putting down native rebels...check. spoiler

But probably the craziest element is the fact that the villain is an unmistakable personification of Gandhi, who is shown not as a leader of independence but as a villainous murderous cult leader attempting to drive the British from India to build his own monstrous empire...i've never really seen anything like it.

I'm assuming that this list isn't ranked. Would you consider making that list chronological? It might give some context for people looking to see how good films influence each other.

I'm still constructing the list...i've only made it to the mid 70s of the 100. And when I started it wasn't clear when they were making it if they were giving the awards to every video mentioned or just the first or just the most prominent. I then decided about halfway through that I was just going to list each one if I could find them on the imdb page. But yeah at the top I have to go back and redo the first ones again adding them all. I missed with the Eminem ones also.

But in short it's still a work in progress and planning to get them all in there. Although some I can't find at all because I don't think they are listed in imdb.

I found some articles related to this film festival going back to 1976. The film festival claims its in its 43rd year and it appears to have given out awards for best film every year. https://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/32/138/114381/Folk/Photo-Heritage/Meet-Cairo-International-Film-Festival%E2%80%99s-first-edi.aspx. This article claims that The Clowns an Italian Film won in 1976.
