Quite liked it. Some parts were fairly lame (the swimming pool book scene), but other than that very nice. I liked the cinematography, nice colors and macro shots. None of it made much sense, but I'm not sure that was the point of the film. It seems to be one of those "experience" films, where experiencing it is more important than understanding it.

Why isn't this updated already? I am unhappy about this.

I'm up 4 on the new update. I like a lot of the new additions. Particularly in regards to some of the newer films like There Will Be Blood (one of my favorite films), and Tree of Life.

Last year it was updated late in the month. Like the last week of January, if I remember correctly.

Rosenbaum has an interesting interpretation of the ending. It's on the film's wikipedia for anyone interested.

I don't feel this is a film one has to watch. Understanding the concept behind the film would serve one just as well. I did watch it. Possibly one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made in my whole life.

Wow, dubble, what a post. You basically just boast about how intelligent you are.

Fargo is pretty damn hilarious. It's dark comedy though, which isn't for everyone.

Transformers is listed because of the reader vote, I'm sure (well not really, but I assume it's the reader vote).

What an objectively bad argument Homage. Well maybe not objectively but logically bad.

I think it's something psychological. Some imbalance. We feel like we have to experience everything good, regardless of the impossibility of the task.

Losing your virginity is way overblown and romanticized. It gets to the point where kids think they have to lose it to fit in. My first time was awful. Not that I regret it. It was a good learning experience. I definitely felt pressure to lose it though. I don't think most kids are ready for the burden that is a sex life. Thus, sex is treated like some sort of game, where the first kid to get laid, or the kid that gets laid the most, wins, rather than an act of passion.

I don't see how Toy Story 3 is superficial. I thought it was a nice children's film.

Yeah, I highly doubt most 14-year-olds would "enjoy" Gone With the Wind (I still haven't ever seen it completely, in one sitting that is). Hell, most 14-year-olds would find The Godfather boring. I think it's very impressive, 14-year-olds seeing the whole list. Most 14-year-olds are worried about losing their virginity, or the size of their feet. Superficial crap.

Opping was inferring that the young lads/lasses were not getting enough physical exercise through an obviously biased and ignorant implication.

Silentwarrior, it's because some of the movies are made for television miniseries type deals.

Silentwarrior, is it the word elite that's ticking you off? Because it shouldn't. Criticism circles are elite. There's no denying that.

I don't see either of those movies on the list.

An international equivalent wouldn't be very different. International numbers are hard to come by prior to 1970, and the movies making huge amounts overseas after 1970 are mostly American blockbusters.

Mrsnoops, isn't that the same as every list in existence? Lists don't really mean anything unless you apply meaning to them. You could say the same thing about pretty much anything at all (including movies), I mean, aren't movies just a bunch of pictures with recorded sound? Meaningless. Unless you find meaning in those moving pictures.
