Yeah, that's not where I'm gonna make my stand, because, as Bill says, as an adaptation, you should judge it as a separate piece, but it is so remarkably different.

As I'm compiling my list at the moment.  I have 196 films so far that I've listed.

Both Gus Van Sant & the Coen Brothers have the most films in the preliminary list with 7 films each.  However, I have 11 films from Disney in that list.  None of them is Hercules or anything relating to Hannah Montana or the goddamn Jonas Brothers.  They'll be at the bottom somewhere.  I piss at them.

I have made cuts.  I had 4 films by Quentin Tarantino but went with 2 in the preliminary.  Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.  I had 5 from Sergio Leone but cut 2 and went with The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, and Once Upon a Time in America.  With Wes Anderson, it's likely that it'll only be Rushmore that might the 100 films list. 

I have a lot of art films in the list but not a lot of comedies.  I'm unsure about it at the moment.

4, so far.  I haven't seen Out of Sight in its entirety. 

In the preliminary part.  sex, lies, & videotape, The Limey, Traffic, and Che.

How can you so blatantly overlook Hercules?

Easy, it was a good film but compared to The Lion King, Beauty & the Beast, and The Little Mermaid.  It was just a decent film though had some great animation designed by Gerald Scarfe.
