    It's been at least a decade since I watched The Third Man. I keep hearing how great it is but I just didn't really appreciate it at the time. At the moment the Blu-Ray is sitting in my Amazon wish list, but I'm kind of hoping it'll pop up on tv so I can see if I like it enough to want to own it.

    Seen nineteen of those. I think it's common to focus on movies of your rough era of life more sometimes, bar a few of the classics. I also think your tastes change over time. My Dad's favorite movie is apparently Duel, and as a kid when I saw it I couldn't get the appeal and thought the ending was silly. Now though I think it's a pretty good flick.

You've got a personal, subjective list from an impersonal, supposedly objective list. It is what it is. I can see why he has done this, though a list 100 names long in some ways is less interesting than a list of say 10 favourite films out of "the greats", which is I guess why he's included presumably his top 10 at the top of the page in poll form (Lord of the Rings appears to be his favourite of "the best" movies).
    The original post doesn't say his Top 100 was only made of movies from other list. It only says that in a concerted effort to watch all the "greatest films" he went through a number of 100 Greatest Films list to help that along. The original post also talks about the ways in which they're trying to be objective, no more than five films can be on the list with the same actor or director (which seems like a very weird rule, but a rule I've seen others on the internet say they have; not a lot, but I've seen people bring that up in movie list threads before) because he believes that just means you're too in love with whoever to be impartial, and that they're trying to gauge their appreciation and enjoyment of a film to make objective choices about what gets in and where it goes. That latter one seems like a normal list making thing anyways.

    I'm not trying to get on your nerves or anything, but...

    Look at the list. The whole list. Notice any sort of pattern?

    Kieran has listed the films in alphabetical order, not order of merit. The African Queen is third because alphabetically it comes third. I don't know why he bothered numbering them, it is a little confusing, but there it is. Look at his poll at the top of the page to see his favourites in order (I'm assuming).
    I wasn't looking at the list at the moment I was writing that. I'd just given it a scan the day before because it happened to be on that last page too. I wasn't thinking about it being in alphabetical order when replying to you in the morning.

    Every so often I want to put together "100 best" lists, but then I wonder how I would justify what makes #77 better than #78. I might be able to get a top 10 in approximate order, but after that it would be "the other 90." And I would agonize so much over what I had to leave off that I would probably just give up.

    I own 24 of the titles in the above list on DVD.

    My list of "100 favorite movies" would probably look a lot different than my list of "100 greatest movies."

    It all depends I guess. I loved Duel when I was little, would come on either Sci-Fi Channel or HBO a lot when I was younger and I'd watch it every time I came across it. Although there is some stuff I watched when I was younger that I couldn't believe I liked when I got a little older, or in some cases a lot older.

    There's always some point when you're trying to draw up a list like that where it starts feeling unwieldy. Where you've got this giant pool of movies and you start wondering why this would go over that. You ever see that list of Edgar Wright's 1000 Favorite Movie?

    Just saw this when I googled it.

    There are a whole bunch of films I didn't enjoy when I first saw them but came to appreciate later, sometimes after several rewatches: Blade Runner, Yojimbo, On Her Majesty's Secret Service... what you are looking for in a film when you are 16 is not always what you're looking for at 26, or 36, or 46. And sometimes you've just had a bad experience with your first exposure to the film, maybe because of the version you watched was not so good (tv edits can be very bad).

    Yeah, and I was kind of amazed at how how many of his choices aligned with mine, as far as those I've seen. Even some of the pretty obscure ones.

    IIRC he had his list chronologically, from earliest film to most recent. You probably couldn't get a better movie education than by watching his list all the way through, if you had the time and resources.

    Maybe for some. I've had more of the opposite. There's really not anything I saw when I was younger that I didn't like but then did in my 20s or whatever. I watched Clockwork Orange in elementary, fell in love with it, and still love it; although I haven't watched it in a few years now, which is probably the longest I've ever went without watching it. But then there's stuff I'll watch now that maybe I was really into when I was like six or seven, and it's like, six and seven year old me was crazy, this is not good at all.

    Yeah, it's all chronological. I've been wanting to watch that Wild Zero movie, it's something I totally forgot even existed until I saw that list, and it looks really cool.
