Many movies are good, some are great, but only a select few can be called truly "essential." After long discussions, a fair amount of bargaining, and a shouting match or two, the staff at Yahoo! Movies has put together this list of the 100 films you must see before you die.


Here are few that are on my list:

Why is Night Of The Living Dead, Fight Club, Halloween, A Beautiful Mind, American Beauty, No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood, The Passion, The Wrestler, Batman Dark Night, Cry baby, Back Draft. ... And many others.

None of the Indiana Jones movies made that list? That's ridiculous.

I have seen Annie Hall, Chinatown, E.T., The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Jaws, The Matrix, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Animal House, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Pulp Fiction, Raging Bull, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Star Wars, The Sound of Music, Terminator 2, This is Spinal Tap, Titanic, To Kill a Mockingbird, Toy Story.

I think they ripped this off of the American Film Institute. The newest film on there is 2003.

I'd cut off quite a few, but the list is a surprisingly good suggestion list. Nice to see foreign films(esp French New Wave) getting recoginition.

It is probably a way to get people to understand Beatlemania in the shortest way possible.

I love Beatles, even the early pop stuff, but I cannot sit through that or Help!

Well, it does list non-American films. Speaking of AFI, does that organization do anything beside making lists for ****'s and giggles?

Damn fine list. It has most of my favorites on there. It's nice to see a Chaplin movie. I like that 8 1/2, M, All About Eve, Sunset Blvd. and The Bicycle Thief are on there.

I would definitely take Die Hard, Do the Right Thing, Terminator 2, Titanic, The Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction and The Matrix off the list.

It's a really good movie. I have no complaints, but I just couldn't put it in a top 100 list.
