corrections — 7 years ago

I correct the versions for Ali Zaoua and for La Stanza del Figlio.

List is pretty good, especially on the early/foreign front — 7 years ago

I’ll go with John Hughes being missing, actually that entire genre (except for Breakfast Club) and pretty much the entire Brat Pack (St. Elmo’s Fire is an okay movie, I guess).

A lot of french movies from the 30’s-40’s that just aren’t fun to watch. Like at all.

If he were redoing it this year, I think you put in Sixteen Candles, The Original Japanese Godzilla movie (before it got tacky… and not the one where they put Raymond Burr into every shot). Also, Ghost in the Shell. Maybe Kurosawa’s Dreams. Or Waking Life.

But on the whole, you can’t fight with a list that heavy on Antonioni, Fellini, Truffaut, Herzog an the other European masters of the 50’s – 70’s. Or that much Asian film. Kurosawa and Ray both well repped. Nice.

Psycho — 7 years ago

The incorrect version of Psycho was listed, and it was getting on my nerves. I took the liberty of correcting it.

Moulin Rouge — 7 years ago

I’m guessing it should be the Baz Luhrmann version or otherwise moved earler in the list if it’s the 50’s version.

A Star Is Born — 7 years ago

Is this the right version? For some reason I thought it was the first one.

I don't know about everyone else... — 7 years ago

but I find it much easier to locate a movie if I have more info than just a title. So I am trying to add director names to as many of the movies as I can, if I can find the info on IMDb.

How in the WORLD.... — 7 years ago

Did Fahrenheit 9/11 push out The Pillow Book (oh, what a film!), Dracula, or Candyman! WTF?!? (sorry, just a mini-rant)

Earth — 7 years ago

The correct version of this movie is now on the list.

List order — 7 years ago

I have just spent many hours fixing the list order and adding the movies that were missing. The correct versions of The Ladies Man and High School are now on the list. This list is now in the exact same order as the list source. Please be courteous and do not rearrange this!

I wonder — 7 years ago

Why does the order of the list keep getting messed up? The order is so off! And the list no longer has all 1001 anymore. There are three missing.
