Thank you for all your work, Bill!

I only managed a very quick glance throught the list, but what struck me most were the drops of Grave of the Fireflies, Triplets of Belleville and Adventures of Prince Achmed. Boo!

The first part is incredible but it loses a lot of steam once they get into space.

Oh, you mean the space dance? a.k.a. the best scene in the movie? Yea, ok.

49. Jűbei Ninpűch˘ (Ninja Scroll, 1993)
42. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

Fixed

The highlighted ones really surprised me. No Sita Sings the Blues? Was just a fad or something last year? I guess Fantastic Mr. Fox will be ranked 92nd or thereabouts in 2011...

No Transformers: the Movie?!? From 58 to unranked, seriously? Bill, 'I'll rip out your optics!!!'

No Heavy Metal? Wow, what the heck happened there?

Reboot: My Two Bobs is a personal sad loss, but in the grander scheme of things not terribly surprising.

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

Actually Edgar, Sita came very close to making it, I believe it came in at 102-103 o this years list. Transformers was not so lucky, it fell all the way to the 130's I think. I'll post all of this in a day or so, when I feel up to it again.

Sorry guys, I know some of you really want to see the runner's up and such, but I have some real life stuff I need to take care of and even when on the internet I think I need to take a bit of a break from the list. But don't worry, in a few days I will post all the films that received votes but didn't make the list as well as a simple listing of the top 100 in the first post of the countdown.; I'll also fix any mistakes in the actual countdown, add in ferris' missing contributions, and add the list to Best Of Lists for the people who have that. It's too bad we can't be on ICheckMovies, because this and the regular top 100 are certainly good enough to be I think.

Okay, took care of adding the numbered list and films that just missed the cut to the first post in the countdown thread. I still have to make the Best Of Lists list, add in Ferris' stuff, fix a few mistakes in the countdown, and deal with the "pick the top five" winner and then this years list will finally be complete.

Bill, astounding work. 3 Cheers

I don't get why people love Wall-E so much... :-\
The first part is incredible but it loses a lot of steam once they get into space.

Here, here. so much is lost once he goes into space, not that there are no good scenes, just the overall feel is lackluster.

I do agree that the scenes on Earth are stronger but I enjoyed the space stuff. Gave an interesting side to the whole story.

Hmmm, I don't have any problem with the later scenes. It morphs into an adventure film but never loses sight of what it was saying in the first half of the film, bringing things full circle in the end, I love that.

Made the list at Best of Lists, it can be found, here.

I'm currently at a paltry 67%, that's pathetic for the person who organizes the list actually.
