Thank you Yoda and The Usual Suspect for your hard work and time!

Should've done this initially, but, some fun questions based on the above predictions (and other related stuff):

  1. Will one of the Marvel films make the top 100? If so, which, and how high?
  2. What will be the highest-ranked comic book film, if any?
  3. What will be the oldest film on the countdown?
  4. What will be the newest film on the countdown?
  5. What's the highest-ranked film from the last list that won't make the cut at all this time?
  6. Which film will make the biggest jump from the previous list?
  7. What will be the top horror film?

I'm sure I'll think of more later.

1. Infinity War, 87
2. The Dark Knight
3. I don't know that many old films. Wizard of Oz?
4. Parasite
5. I searched for the last list but couldn't find it.
6. See above.
7. The Exorcist


Some of my own Q&A:
Highest ranked Western? Unforgiven, 27
Most popular decade? 1970s - 19 films
Most popular director? Spielberg - 7 films
Highest ranked Sci-fi film? Star Wars Empire Strikes Back, 12
Highest ranked Best Picture Oscar? The Godfather, 4
Highest ranked animated film? Spirited Away, 39
How many foreign language films? 16

1) Hopefully none, but probably some. I'm not even going to pretend that I know which ones are highly regarded though.
2) The Dark Knight...but I would prefer Superman II, because clearly this list should be beholden to my sense of nostalgia
3) The General
4) Parasite
5) Don't know the old list, but I'll guess Inglorious Basterds
6) Same as above, um, Paul Blart
7) The Thing



Is the info from the poo quiz going to be in the exam at the end of this countdown?
Let's just hope it's poo or false.

You can also find it in the Lists section, along with all the others (both MoFo-specific countdowns and lists from outside sources, like AFI, Cannes, Ebert's Greatest Films, etc.) where you can check off movies you've seen so that we can secretly judge how well watched you are and mock your cinematic blind spots behind your back.



Thanks for posting this Captain. Gives us noobs a reference point.


Also, just noticed I didn't include a single animated film. Please pardon my faux pas and if I could, would have squeezed in "Watership Down" or "Toy Story".
