I'm quite surprised at a few of the "best" films you've not seen (Taxi Driver? Butch & Sundance?!), and thoroughly recommend you take time out to watch them! =D

I was disappointed to see that The Third Man is so far down that list, though, as it's possibly my favourite film of all time.

Oops - I shall have to edit. I have seen Butch... just missed it in the list.

I don't remember detail of all of them mind.

Phew! Perish the thought of someone not having seen Butch & Sundance...

=O

That's Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon and the sports car yes?

Hmm.

Dilemma. Does Mr White mock me, or is he genuinely asking? Must...get...to...know...people...better...

In case it is a genuine question, no, that's Thelma and Louise you're thinking of. *runs and hides*

In this case I'm mocking. But I'm sure all my friends will use this opportunity to defame my character...

I'm surprised you haven't seen Metropolis. Required material for any sci-fi afficionado, I would have thought. And you need to watch Toy Story 2 just for the Star Wars allegory! Das Boot is best seen in the original German and as the mini-series, riveting stuff. Sad to say I seem to have seen a lot more of the bad stuff than you, and not as many of the good... did watch Cap'n Jack Sparrow earlier tonight though! Arr!

I've seen snatches of a number of the ones I've not marked - like Casablanca, Das Boot and Metropolis. I'll edit Toy Story 2 in as I must have missed it from the list earlier.
