This is my all time top 100 films list. I have meticulously ordered my favourite films and it is likely to change every now and again. Please respect my opinion as I am sure I will respect yours. If you wish to have a healthy debate, then I am willing to do so but if you get disrespectful I will delete your comments.

Thanks!

Ross McWhan

I have added screenshots/alternative posters into the notes section to jazz up the list a bit. Also, I think screenshots can often make someone more curious about a film they haven't seen, making them go out and see it, which is always a good thing.

No pictures in this list include spoilers

i came here after seeing your list of over rated movies, hmmm i was curious but nice list, your and mine taste dont match :)

I came from your overrated movies list ! and I have to say that we are two too different !
The Shining and Reservoir Dogs and Pulb Fiction.. not even in my top 200 ! I couldn't like these movies.
other thing I think that you would love [ The Good, The Bad and The Ugly ], because I didn't like it at all.
and your list doesn't include my favourite movie [ Gladiator ], I am so amazed how different we are.
regards,

I don't think I could ever get tired of The Third Man, the ending was magnificent. Props for mentioning The Class as well. One of the films that really helped me engage in self-reflection. Francois Truffaut's Wild Child had a similar vibe which you might take a liking to. I never really could appreciate Paths of Glory. It lacks the subtlety of his other great films and is way on the didactic side for my particular tastes. Good list.
