Yahoo’s 100 Films

Here’s Yahoo’s list of 100 films you must see. I don’t know what happens if you don’t see them. Maybe you’re hopelessly out of sync with inside jokes at parties. Or you don’t get all the dumb movie lines and references that nerdy people like me make in conversation. Anyway, here’s the list. I’ve highlighted in blue all the ones I’ve seen. I know, I know. I’ve never seen Titanic – but I don’t feel bad about it, I haven’t seen any of the Godfather movies either.
