Post Re: All-Time Top 100 Movie List Thread (Zwackerm and stuffp)
Since I'm going into Force Awakens with "best movie ever" expectations, it seemed like a good idea to revisit this. Only doing a top 50 this time and all at once. I'll also compare their rank to two years ago. The stuff that fell off only did so because I hadn't seen them in awhile and wanted to get in all my new favorites. Nothing personal. I promise it was as hastily put together as last time.

50. Full Metal Jacket (+24)
49. Trading Places (new)
48. Back to the Future (+4)
47. Bad Boys 2 (+8)
46. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (=)
45. Guardians of the Galaxy (new)
44. Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn (-4)
43. Anchorman (+5)
42. Sunshine (+5)
41. Django Unchained (new)
40. An American Werewolf In London (new)
39. Young Frankenstein (-2)
38. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (=)
37. Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (+12)
36. Animal House (-2)
35. The Princess Bride (-4)
34. Half Baked (-6)
33. The Iron Giant (-6)
32. Jaws (-3)
31. Airplane (-7)
30. Fight Club (-10)
29. Shaun of the Dead (-7)
28. Coming To America (-2)
27. A Clockwork Orange (-2)
26. The Avengers (new)
25. Gladiator (+11)
24. Wall-E (+19)
23. Blazing Saddles (-5)
22. 2001: A Space Oddesey (+1)
21. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (=)
20. Memento (-3)
19. Die Hard (=)
18. Heat (-2)
17. Pulp Fiction (-4)
16. The Raid 2 (new)
15. The Matrix (-1)
14. Aliens (-2)
13. The Shining (-2)
12. Jurassic Park (+18)
11. Raiders of the Lost Ark (+4)
10. Zoolander (-1)
9. Scott Pilgrim vs the World (-2)
8. Terminator 2: Judgement Day (=)
7. The Dark Knight (+3)
6. Star Wars: A New Hope (=)
5. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (-1)
4. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (-1)
3. Office Space (-1)
2. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (+3)
1. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (=)

And still the world heavyweight champion.... So there's a little bit of shuffling in the top 15, but nothing too drastic. The Raid 2 and The Avengers are the top debuts because they're both awesome. Jurassic Park, Wall-E and Full Metal Jacket make big jumps, also due to awesomeness. Django replaces Reservior Dogs as my second favorite Tarantino. And John Landis is even better than I previously realized. So there you have it. Your move, Star Wars.

Office Space in the top 3 = AWESOME!

Two Towers at No.1 - is this based on theatrical or the extended edition?

Wow. This seems awfully premature. Seeing them once. Loving them, sure. But then ADDING THEM TO YOUR ALL-TIME LIST?! And at such high spots too! I appreciate your taste being what it is, but don't understand your method here.

Kudos on keeping this list updated, though.

I started some version of this list 15 years ago, and updated it every time I saw a great film. Then I stopped doing that, but I do like to keep some kind of definitive list for myself. And the list is simply fluctuating too, my current #80 might change positions after I see it again.

Now with these new films I've added, I loved the impact they had when I've seen them. Everest I saw twice by the way.

So yeah the positions they're at, it probably is premature to set them in stone like that. Better to look at it, that I think those films are at least better than the films that fell out of my top 100 because of it: I especially made remarks at the bottom of my list, as all of those currently left out are still deserving of it, I just can't make place for them right now.

Yeah same here. Two Towers improves the most with the EE and ROTK the least.

Anyway, #84-87 is the best lot of four in a row.


So, I put in The Last Crusade at #63 after watching it again.

My #84-87 have changed since original posting the list as well.

Those are now at #91-93, and I did just drop out Cliffhanger, it's due for a re-watch, but at the moment I can't put it above any of the other 100.

I will update again sometime this year. 150 would be interesting, but I don't think I have the endurance to pull it off. Maybe back to 100 though...

Also wasn't there supposed to be a new AFI list this year? What happened?

Movies didn't really become good until mid to late 70s, with a few exceptions from amazing directors obviously. So you've only got about 20 years to catch up on!

I couldn't sleep and decided to start working on the updated movie list. I use an app called letterboxd now, which keeps track of all the movies I rate, and it made this process much easier this time. I have nearly 2000 films ranked, which is probably not everything, but surely there can't be any all time favorites left out. Right?

This will come in two parts. The first being the movies I have ranked 4.5 stars. I'll include new movies too to see how well they've aged when I update again in a few years. Unless we all die by then, and my embarassing choices are forever left to be dissected by whatever alien race discovers how to access the cloud.

Next week (or after) will be the 60 movies that I have given 5 stars, ranked and maybe with some small write ups. For now, here are the 131(for now) four and a halfers, in alphabetical order.

Hey, me too! My primary app for rating movies was Flixster, but that crapped out the November update (I at least have the old version on my iPad) so I switched over. Love it. I went back through all the old "How man have you seen in...20xx" and logged my films that way. It's nice having an official log of all the movies I've seen (and what day I saw them) going back to 2006.

2,242 films logged (diary)
3,077 films rated / 3,155 on Flixster

But back to this thread, I made a list years ago, but now I'd say its embarrassingly out of date. I have a Top 5 and that's about it.
