Hello dear, — 1 year ago

Hello dear,

Past is Experience! Present is Experiment! Future is Expectation!

Use your Experience in your experiment to achieve your expectations!

My name miss Amarilla ,i am 24 years old girl,

You can contact me with my e-mail (

I’ll give you my picture and tell you more about myself.

Have a good day.


Wrong Dawn of the Dead — 2 years ago

Replaced the 2004 remake with the 1978 original that should be in spot No. 271.

Untitled — 2 years ago

These days “The Army in the Shadows” (#449) is always referred to as “Army Of Shadows.” Criterion Collection image available.

“Scarlett Street” (#997) should be spelled “Scarlet Street.”

2010 version is out — 4 years ago

Should this be updated or start a new one? There are 68 new titles in the 2010 version and a lot of titles have moved around.

Correction — 4 years ago

Replaced #685 Douglas Sirk’s “There’s Always Tomorrow” with Disney’s “Bambi” so the list complies with the list source.

Giant? — 4 years ago

Is that movie on here? I must be overlooking it. George Stephens is one of They Shoot Picture’s top 100 directors, so I have a hard time believing the movie’s not on this list.

9%! — 5 years ago

W00t. I’m addicted to lists. Now I have to complete this one, too. Also working on a 1001 books to read before you die list. I’ll be reading/watching movies until I die. :-)

List Updated and complete. — 5 years ago

The list has now been updated.

Apologies to anyone that was using the old list but it was always my intention to keep up to date with They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?

For future reference, this list will be updated again next December, when the new list is made available.


Update. — 5 years ago

The new list is now available and I’m currently in the process of updating this page. Stay tuned and it’ll be finished in the next day or so. Thanks
