I've always wondered why DARK DAYS never gets a mention anywhere: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0235327/
Let's do some wholesome DVD spanking.

1) That film about the sand and the sex. I am very intrigued I must say.

2) Matchpoint is absolutely BRUTAL. There are nicer buildings in London than that Gherkin thing not every shot has to have it in ( which after all is a rip off of a building near the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona). I think half those english actors were struggling not to laugh at what they were being asked to say. Speaking of Barca and Woody Allen, only one of his recent films is watchable and that is Vicki Christina B. Love the fact both la Cruz and Rebecca Hall blow (literally?) that imposter ScoJo off the map. VCB has a lot of merit but it's still sub-Pedro A as far as Spanish melodrama goes.

3) From my top 100 I want to put forward Midnight Run. Does anyone not like this film? De niro's last great performance and best comedy performance? The most profane film ever? In fact perhaps the more general point is how many comedies should be in people's top 100s. I would say 10% just for balance.
Oh dear just checked I have 12 out of 100. I must be more serious.
These are Midnight Run, Fish Called Wanda, Young Frankenstein, Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, Life of Brian, The Thin Man, Lebowski, Raising Arizona, the Apartment, Some Like It Hot, Dr Strangelove.

Wouldn't it be great to have a Bond film on the top 100? The trouble is choosing which one. Goldeneye would be my choice. I could watch the 11 min pre-opening credit sequence on an endless loop. And the moment the opening credit music kicks in is spine-tingling. Such fun. Top drawer cinema.

Tremors is also tremendously enjoyable. I suppose it's considered more of a cult flick, but really, I don't know anyone who didn't have a good time watching it. And talk about re-watch value! Is it not THE quintessential popcorn/monster movie?

How about it 'spotters?  :)

For the Pierce films I'd lean more toward TND - really need to give GE a rewatch.

Seconded on Tremors I need to find space for it.
Goldfinger is already on my 100. Best car (had the car with ejector seat when I was young), best villain, best line,'No Mr Bond I expect you to die'.

This will sound like a strange little plug, but I would recommend some people watch Nostalgia for the Countryside, a film that has easily climbed its way to the 3rd round of the Far East Bracket.

Uh, edgar, I hate to be the bearer of bad news:(

I should that thread more frequently.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Three selections from my 2009 list

Ratcatcher (Lynne Ramsay, 1999)

There's been a lot of forum buzz about this film since last year. I feel that a campaign might actually get it on the list. Also, OAD and pix really like it too, and everybody likes them.
You beat me to it, matt! This is one of those films that wasn't on my list last year - but only because I hadn't seen it then. When I watched it a few months ago, I knew immediately it would be in my top 100; it's superb. Here are links to some lovely reviews of it: Clovis, flieger, worm, and roujin

Great film but I think the soundtrack makes the film seem better than it is, it would be pretty high in my top doc list though.
