Pulp Fiction I can see as #1 but f*&king Titanic? One of the worst films ever made in the history of stinky films????????? Why not just puke on some celluloid and have done with it.

I hate lists!

Moulin Rouge? Stink. Really, some of these movies are absolute shite - what are they thinking? Sooooooooo many good ones left off.

You haven't seen Room with a View? My dear Miss Dee! You MUST. I practically insist. And I really insist you see In the Mood for Love! What a fabulous foreign film! That's 95 but Titanic is 3? What's the criteria used?

Where is Blade Runner and Mad Max? Are they just a little too early?

Oh, and if you see In The Mood For Love and LOVE the retro-soundtrack, as I did, I can burn a copy for you.

Thanks honey! I'll let you know what I think when I see it.

I was very perplexed about Titanic. Just like I was surprised that The DaVinci Code made the Top 100 on the book list. I didn't read it because it sucks. I definitely think Entertainment Weekly injects controversial picks in their lists to get people riled up so more people read these list issues.

I realized what a slacker I am when I was unable to bold Room with A View. I always meant to see it. I really want to but just never have. And I will definitely check out In the Mood for Love, too.

I despised blue velvet. But it always ranks as such a great movie, so I've watched again to see if I was just in a mood, missed nuances, something, but no, I just plain out don't like it.

I saw it once. Dennis Hopper scared me a lot. Otherwise, I remember being bored.

Lynch made better movies, including Wild at Heart and Mullholland Drive.

I definitely like either of those better than Blue Velvet. And I really liked The Straight Story, too. I recommend that one very often. It's still got that Lynchian edge but it's down to earth as well.
