This list is taken directly from the New York Times web site and arranged in the order they listed. I haven't double checked this against the list at "icheckmovies' but plan to do that in the future.

Please let me know of any errors... thanks :)

great list well done

I am just glad that we now have the 'sections ability'. I think the 200 top Japanese films list was more of a headache.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Oct 3 12:30
Ha! Check out our like-minded two-star rating for A.I. Artificial Intelligence. There may be more like this, but I just happened to glance thru the first segment and noticed that. We can't BOTH be wrong, can we?...
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Oct 3 21:17
Ha, I'm finding A.I. is a love/hate film with very few people giving it a three star rating. I just found it to be emotional torture porn.

great list and very eclectic!
