Immediately after making mine, I realized I forgot The Apartment and The Shining, and Flickchart today reminded me that I missed American Splendor.

Don't you guys rate movies on IMDB? That way, when making such lists, you don't have to rely on memory.

a lot of us on the boards aren't guys  ;) but i don't use imdb :)

But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Yeah it makes life alot easier, especially sorting movies by the rating you gave it.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

No, I don't use IMDB or any other system. I have a terrible memory too, so I pretty much make my lists in an arbitrary manner.

'guys' is pretty androgynous imo. I do like your response though ;)

I like Criticker because it lets you rate on a 100 pt. scale so if I was so inclined I could work in really fine grades (but I choose to go by multiples of 5 to keep a little sanity).  So for compiling my top 100 I'm basically looking at everything I gave a 90-100 (something like 150ish titles) along with revisiting a few that I may have underrated because I haven't seen them in years.

This looks like it's going to be a lot harder than just consulting my IMDB ratings...

This site seems rather inefficient. You'd want to keep it updated regularly if you're going to use it - going from stratch would be a very laborious process.
