mrdux BS: The 100 greatest movies of all time (145* d) RE: BS: The 100 greatest movies of all time 09 Jul 07


Q inquired about "a Japanese film about a trucker (played John Wayne style) helping a woman to improve the noodles in her noodle shop."

Tampopo

As to the list, well, it's a list. I'd say it includes most of the "great" US films, and it includes its share of crap and its share of ok films that will barely be remembered twenty years from now. It seems to have accomplished what WesleyS intended in his intial post: to start a discussion.

A few of my own additions to the list that haven't been mentioned yet:

Red River
His Girl Friday
My Man Godfrey
The Cavalry Trilogy (John Ford)
Touch of Evil
The Thin Man
The Big Sleep

. . . just off the top of my head.

I am intrigued by autolycus' suggestion:

"Perhaps we can add our own top 100s - now that would be interesting."
