03:40 am - I guess I'm a bit of a film buff . . .
I'm a bit surprised that I've seen about three-quarters of the films on this list. Many of the ones I haven't are westerns -- I'm not a big fan of the genre, so I rarely watch them. There are quite a few recent films in the list, many of which I haven't been interested in seeing. I also wonder about some of the choices -- "Finding Nemo" was nice, but in the all time top 100? Frankly I thought "Beauty and the Beast" from 1991 was better -- and that film was up for the Best Picture Oscar that year! Why isn't it on this list?
