    Two comedies i’m fond of that i didn’t see on your list, planes, trains, and automobiles. The other one is caddyshack. You did list some of the alltime greats though. Well done.

    I reckon I’ve seen about a quarter of these, so still some way to go.

  3. Posted January 8, 2011 at 3:21 am

    I’ve only seen 21 of them. The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi should have been on this list with Star Wars. The Usual Suspects and The Exorcist also belong on here I would think.

    What about Metropolis from 1928. That was a spectacular movie. I really liked your top three. I just love classic films. also The Jerk. That’s the funniest movie Steve Martin ever did, that and All Of Me.

    good compilation..I would say, I have watched 75% on the list.

  6. Posted January 26, 2011 at 12:18 am
