http://www.time.com/time/2005/100movies/

http://www.time.com/time/2005/100mov...lete_list.html


I can't say I agree with every choice and needless to say there are many shocking omissions. But there are some I'm glad to see:

Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon
Kurosawa's Ikiru
Almodovar's Talk to Her
Scott's Bladerunner
Bergman's Persona



Considering the list some of my favorites that were omitted:

Gone With the Wind
Wizard of Oz
Sunset Blvd
Grapes of Wrath
It Happened One Night
LA Confidential
Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast
Fellini's Nights of Cabiria or La Strada or 8 1/2?
Brian De Palma's The Untouchables
Amadeus
Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman
Pixar's The Incredibles
Annie Hall
Night of the Hunter
Fanny and Alexander
Wong Kar Wai's In The Mood For Love
Silence of the Lambs
JFK
Hithcock's Vertigo and North by Northwest
Kurosawa's Ran and Seven Samurai
Marcel Pagnol's Manon of the Spring
American Beauty
David Lynch's Mulholland Drive and Blue Velvet
Excalibur
Cinema Paradiso
Moulin Rouge
Fargo
2001: A Space Odyssey

The best way it study these best of lists is to view box-office by decade.
That way it's the paying public that has a say so and not some goof from some magazine or the liberal goofs at A.F.I.

Seems like Time was going for the anti-AFI list by going the less popular and/or foreign route with alot of their selections.

I do have to nitpick how they can pick Finding Nemo over the vastly superior Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and The Incredibles. Or Charade over North by Northwest?

The list gets props by listing both Children of Paradise and Brazil. Hell, even a little bit more loving by listing The Apu Trilogy.

However...

1. Why Finding Nemo? PIXAR and other animation studios have put out films that are far and away better than Finding Nemo. Maybe I only think this as I believe Finding Nemo was one of PIXAR's "lesser" efforts (right next to Monsters, Inc. and A Bug's Life).

2. Star Wars is listed, but not The Empire Strikes Back? If The Godfather, Parts 1 & 2 and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy can get a mention, why not Empire Strikes Back? Come on, it was the last great Star Wars film...

3. These people do know that Kurosawa made better films that Yojimbo... right?

Pretty good list. Obviously people aren't going to agree with everything on there. Finding Nemo is really odd on that list though.

Right on!... because the best movies always make the most money.

Biggest omission in my opinion:

The Shawshank Redemption

Definately not a very good list with way too many omissions to list. Do these guys live under a rock?

Props to you, with the weekend almost at a close you hit it hard and made in just before the midnight deadline to claim sole ownership of DVDTALK's "dumbest post of the week"

I like how it includes a lot of foreign films. But I can't help but think if it wasn't for Criterion many of these movies wouldn't be on the list. Sure, they still existed but Criterion has resurrected them and brought them back into the spotlight.

Nice choice with City of God and Miller's Crossing. But Finding Nemo has make scratching my head.

Yojimbo over Seven Samurai?
Finding Nemo over...everything else?
Drunken Master II got a nod?
Over Shawshank?
...and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
Smiles of a Summer Night is the best Bergman? Since when?
No Hitchcock outside of Psycho? What about Rear Window? Vertigo? North by Northwest?

I could go on. The list is seriously flawed (in my opinion, that is), but much respect to TIME Magazine for including City of God.

Kind of odd that the only Renoir was The Crime of Monsieur Lange...

It's hard for me to take a list seriously when they leave out Apocalypse Now or Vertigo in favor of Finding Nemo

Good eye.

Also, I didn't even notice that Rules of the Game wasn't on the list. If a list leaves off Rules of the Game and Seven Samurai, and favors Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night over Wild Strawberries or Seventh Seal...then something's a bit off.

A lot of good/great movies on the list, but not a great list overall due to too many omissions.

Nice that they didn't shortchange foreign films, but there are some very questionable titles there.

Finding Nemo, Brazil and LOTR Trilogy (for example) don't deserve to be on there.

Odd that Smiles of a Summer Night is listed instead of Bergmans better films Wild Strawberries and Fanny and Alexander (to name a few).

Purple Rose of Cairo is there but no Manhattan or Annie Hall?

Where's the Three Colors Trilogy?

Great to see Leolo on the list. Very unexpected, but a nice surprise.

I really liked seeing City of God on that list. Finding Nemo??? I really hope that was #100.

No Seven Samurai? Obviously a flawed. How the heck did "Once Upon a Time in the West" made the list but not "The Good the Bad and the Ugly"? Where's "Platoon"????

no office space? They obviously have asses for heads... Havn't met one person who didn't think that was one of the best movies they had ever seen.

Actually, Time movie critic Richard Schickel is one of the individuals who selects the nominees for AFI's "100 Years, 100 whatever" lists...I was surprised The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie wasn't on this list, as he considers it one of the funniest films ever made (having threatened to resign if it wasn't placed on the "100 Laughs" ballot...and no, I'm not joking about this.)

You're so totally right! Independence Day was one of the best movies of the 90s!
