Post How many of IMDB's Top 50 have you seen?
While I enjoyed another thread about how many films you had seen, I believe the IMDB list may be more appropriate. A true film fan would have seen almost all of the films that are in the top 50 as chosen by hundreds of thousands of other film fans.

So how many have you seen?

1. 9.1 The Godfather (1972)
2. 9.1 The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
3. 8.9 The Godfather: Part II (1974)
4. 8.8 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
5. 8.8 Casablanca (1942)
6. 8.8 Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, Il [The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly] (1966)
7. 8.8 Schindler's List (1993)
8. 8.7 Shichinin no samurai [Seven Samurai] (1954)
9. 8.7 Pulp Fiction (1994)
10. 8.7 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
11. 8.7 Star Wars (1977)
12. 8.7 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
13. 8.7 Rear Window (1954)
14. 8.7 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
15. 8.6 12 Angry Men (1957)
16. 8.6 Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
17. 8.6 The Usual Suspects (1995)
18. 8.6 Cidade de Deus [City of God] (2002)
19. 8.6 Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
20. 8.6 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
21. 8.6 Citizen Kane (1941)
22. 8.6 Psycho (1960)
23. 8.6 Goodfellas (1990)
24. 8.6 C'era una volta il West [Once Upon a Time in the West] (1968)
25. 8.6 North by Northwest (1959)
26. 8.6 Memento (2000)
27. 8.5 The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
28. 8.5 Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
29. 8.5 Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Le [Amelie] (2001)
30. 8.5 Sunset Blvd. (1950)
31. 8.5 It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
32. 8.5 Fight Club (1999)

37. 8.4 Apocalypse Now (1979)
38. 8.4 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
39. 8.4 Paths of Glory (1957)
40. 8.4 Se7en (1995)
41. 8.4 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
42. 8.4 Untergang, Der [Downfall] (2004)

You know what one of my problems is? As I get older and get more projects I am working on, and as I am more distracted by things like computer games, I tend to not watch as many films as I used to, so my "classic" film knowledge is not bad, but I really have missed a lot of the more recent great films. I must pledge to correct that...

I've seen all but downfall, (I keep hearing bad things) and City of God, I usually wait for a film to be more than 5 years old and see if it stays on IMDB before I check it out.

Is it just me or are foreign films kind of inflated on here? I haven't seen Amelie or Downfall but from what I've heard they shouldn't be that high, City of God is bril but top 20?, Spirited Away isn't *that* impressive, Seven Samurai...
