Here are few that are on my list: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.
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.
