    This is a pretty good list. I like a lot of the movies on here. I didn't like "Requiem For A Dream". I was also surprised to see "Toy Story 2" on there but not the original.

    "Metropolis" and "The Graduate" should be higher up, imo.
    Who shot who in the what now?

    Requiem was great. So was Pi (Aronofsky's first movie, independent black and white). I wonder what some people see in some of these movies though. And all of those pre 1940's movies - seriously, how many people have ever seen a single one of those outside The Wizard of Oz?
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    I loved loved loved Momento. Definitely one of my faves. The concept wasn't new but I thought it was very well done. I'm glad to see it up there.

    I'm disappointed to see the Graduate on the verge of falling out of the top 100

    Overrated:
    7 Citizen Kane (1941)
    22 Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
    34 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
    96 Full Metal Jacket (1987) (??? there are so many other worthwhile vietnam movies (Platoon))

    Underrated:
    20 North by Northwest (1959)
    48 Bridge on the River Kwai, The (1957)
    90 Princess Bride, The (1987) (overstated?)
    100 Graduate, The (1967)

    Quinn, I'm gonna disagree with you on "To Kill A Mockingbird", I love that movie.

    Hazy, Pi is awful. For those of you who haven't seen it, say no to Pi.
    Who shot who in the what now?
