      The Hangover

      I go to movies to enjoy myself - and if possible, to laugh. I guarantee there were plenty of laughs at all the above. I also suspect all of you have heard of all 6 of these.

          Have seen 22 of the movies on the directors' list, and another 56 were already in my queue.

          Similarly, have seen 23 of the movies on the critics' list, and another 53 were already in my queue.

              Given the sheer number of films there are that is quite a lot of overlap.

              I think some people might be able to come up with 2 top 10s:

              10 films they just really enjoy
              10 films they do enjoy that they feel would be considered of 'artistic merit' by a critic or a director.

                  Some good movies on the list, however many great movies are not on this list. Movies, like art, food, etc., are a personal thing. My favorite movie didn't even make this list of 100.

                      I agree. Surprising. It seems unlikely, but I wonder if both the directors and critics were selecting films from the same master list.

                        Interesting!

                        Animal House was filmed when I was at Oregon. Saw a lot of the filming.

                        And I was an extra in American Flyers....

                        far right....

                              Bingo. I have never understood how movies/music/food can be rated. There's no objectivity involved, just whatever a particular person enjoys.

                              In my world, a list without Caddyshack and The Deer Hunter is a list I cannot agree with, at all.

                              Also, as I'm sure I have said before (maybe more than once), Apocalypse Now was the worst movie I have ever watched.

                                Animal House was filmed when I was at Oregon. Saw a lot of the filming.

                                And I was an extra in American Flyers....

                                far right....

                                And it was written by a fellow alumni from Dartmouth College...about Dartmouth College.
