How Many of Yahoo’s ‘100 Movies To See Before You Die’ Have You Seen?

I recently made a point to see all of the films I had not seen on IMDB’s Top 250 list and outside of the unavailable Safety Last! (Does anyone own this or know where I can buy it for less than $80?) I managed just that. In talking about taking on the list I discussed it with a fellow Seattle critic who said to me, “Yeah, but there are a lot of fanboy films on that list.” I told them I understood that, but there are also plenty of great films on that list and also said it is always best to be sure you see all the films your potential readership has seen and also believes are great.

On top of the IMDB list I have also created a spreadsheet that totals 495 films made up of the IMDB Top 250, the AFI Top 100, the complete list of Best Picture winners and Roger Ebert’s List of Greatest Movies and it appears I have a few new films to add to my list as Yahoo has released a list of their 100 Movies To See Before You Die and of that list there are seven I have not yet seen.

I have included the entire list below and you can get a detailed look at Yahoo right here. Movies marked with an * are those I apparently need to see before I die.

How many do you have left to see? Anyone out there seen them all?
