At the moment, I am afraid I am not able to provide you with my list as I'm working on it. So, remember, The Third M?n's Favorite Films of All Time (not excluding pictures and commentaries) are coming to a forum near you!

Unoriginal topic, perhaps, but the truth is that I don't know what your favorite films are. So, please, do post away.

There is a thread containing top ten lists of favorite movies, music, books, etc, you can find here:

http://www.flipsidemovies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=33

"Favorites" lists are incredibly difficult for me to compose. I generally know what my top five or so are, but after that, it really depends on the size of the list. I mean, would a top 20 list have the same movies in the same order as a top 100 list, or a top 1,000? In other words, the less slots I'm given, the less likey I am to repeat a movie by a certain director, and just use one particular film to represent his/her oeuvre.

All true. So many variables, it's practically madness. Still, what fun!

Well, prepare for many entries to be found in my list. You just wait and see.

That's understandable.

Top 100's are just like the hundred point scale on a curve.

An excellent point, Danny. Apples and bananas.

Yes, I may do a Top 100 but not in order of preference. Rather, I thought it'd be better if I organised the list alphabetically. I'm working on it right now, and I just added a a massive commentary for Citizen Kane.

Very true.

I've been trying a top 100 for a while now, and can't be able to do it. Very Happy

I think I'm going to try and organize it as per Mr. Lime's suggestion; placing the movies in alphabetical order rather than preference, and placing those in 100-title groupings.
