    Transformers was awesome, till they came out with the 2nd, and 3rd, and so on.....

    I got exactly 250. That's kinda funny. There are a ton from way before my time. I am definitely going to refer to this list for movies. Thanks for the link!

    255. The 4th Indy movie is the most egregious one that I've seen it suck so bad. I last saw it at an Indy marathon and after seeing the first 3 you really see how terrible it is.

    Where did they get this list??

    Reading through the list, by about #150, there were twenty or so which don't even belong in the top 500, much less the top 150.

    Back to the Future, #23 ?? No way.
    Evil Dead 2 , # 49 ?? Seriously? The 49th best movie of all time?
    Donnie Darko, # 53 ? Terrible choice.
    Edward Scissorhands , # 66 ? Sigh.
    Blue Velvet, # 85 ?? Nope.
    Return of the Jedi, #91 ? This belongs on a list of WORST all time movies, not in the top 100 best..
    Anchorman, #113 ? AHEAD of Blazing Saddles?? SMH
    Blowout, # 139? Huh?


    Where's Young Frankenstein? Forrest Gump? Wrath of Khan? Roger Rabbit? Holy Grail? A Few Good Men? Braveheart? Mr. Roberts? Sixth Sense? And so on..

    Now I know some of these I mention appear later on down the list, which is a travesty, because they should be MUCH higher.. And I am NOT saying those I mention in the top part up there are BAD movies - they are NOT, I really LIKE most of them (except for RotJ), but they just don't belong in the top 150, that's all.

    And their list.. lol by the time they hit the 400's, they are just trolling. Attack of the Clones? Superman Returns? Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? They were just trying to see if anyone was still paying attention by that point..

    ps - am I blind? Young Frankenstein is not in their list at ALL? Totally invalid list if it's not there.

    258 for me. Most of the ones I have not seen fall into three groups: old, foreign, and animated. There are some movies on this list that I definitely would not include. A.I. jumped out at me as belonging nowhere near this list.

    A.I was really good though. And had they focused on the male gigolo more instead of the kid,it would have been an oscar movie, ahead of it's time.
    there was a scene is exmachina that reminded me too much of A.I and that was 14 years ago. I believe it was nominated for a couple of golden globes.

    my beef was the thin red line being way ahead of saving private ryan.
