So I just posted my contribution in the other thread. It's not the work of months and years of consideration. I put it together today. As you'll see there are quite a few obvious "classics" missing. It's been ages since I saw movies such as The 400 blows and I just can't remember it. I suppose it was good but it would feel wrong to put it up just because it's "considered" a classic.
There are a couple of movies that by no means can be considered "Big Art", but which for various reasons still have managed to sneak a certain spot in my heart, God knows why really. Examples of those are Can't buy me love and Short Circuit.
The ranking between the different spots as soon as we leave the top, is a bit random. I'm sure there are movies that are down about the 70s that I could consider better than one about the 40s if I thought it over more closely.
The philosophy of the list has been to express a bit of me as a film lover. As you see there aren't many movies from the East at all, simply because I've seen so few. Might change over time! Hopefully. I've also got a bit of a gap since I didn't watch all that much movies from my kids were born in the mid 90s until I picked up my old passion for movies again this year. There's a lot missing here. Be kind with me.
Above all I've made the list with love and lust. Those are movies that I'd love to have around and would enjoy seeing again (in most cases. I don't dare to see Pan's Labyrinth again, ever!)
