Here are the ones I have seen, with my personal ratings, to get an impression of what I think about the choices I have seen.

3) The Italian Job - 1969- 10/10
7) City Lights - 1931 - Charles Chaplin - 10/10
8) The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - 1966 - Sergio Leone - 10/10
15) Its A Wonderful Life - 1947 - Frank Capra - 10/10
16) Casablanca - 1942 - Michael Curtiz - 10/10
19) The Searchers - 1956 - John Ford - 8/10
20) Duck Soup - 1933 - Leo McCarey - 5/10
27) Forbidden Planet - 1956 - Fred M Wilcox - 10/10
28) North by Northwest - 1959 - Alfred Hitchcock - 10/10
30) King Kong - 1933 - Merian C Cooper & Ernest B Scoedsack - 10/10
34) Singin' in the Rain - 1952 - Stanley Donen/Gene Kelly - 10/10
37) 12 Angry Men - 1957 - Sidney Lumet - 10/10
43) Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb - 1964 - Stanley Kubrick - 10/10
45) The Apartment - 1960 - Billy Wilder - 10/10
50) The Philadelphia Story - 1940 - George Cukor - 10/10
56) The Wizard Of Oz - 1939 - Victor Fleming - 10/10
60) Some Like It Hot - 1959 - Billy Wilder - 10/10
65) The Public Enemy-1933-William A.Wellman- 8/10
68) The Asphalt Jungle - 1950 - John Huston - 10/10
69) Stranger On A Train - 1951 - Alfred Hitchcock - 10/10
70) 2001: a space odyssey--1968- 10/10


With the few exceptions, I think most of them are definite golden oldies to watch.

My personal choice for a film that should be recommended is Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin from 1925. It is definitely a personal recommendation, because I find this has the most memorable use of juxtaposition, which Kevin Costner owns a considerable dept for ripping off that classic pram-down-the-stairs scene for his own use! I also think that its communist story about a naval crew rebelling against the poor food they are served remains as powerful as it was during the time- most naval pictures tend to have a crew getting along, but this stands out from the rest for representing the unpleasant treatment a crew can get; so, its uplifting message of not tolerating such treatment will probably make an impact with audiences of today  as it did all those years ago.

Good list. Have seen 49 of them and most of the others I'd like to see. Bit of a lack of Bette Davis for my taste, I'd like to have seen All About Eve on the list.

I've seen 87.  I've got six of the other 13 on video or DVD, so I'll try to complete the list as soon as work and money will allow!

I think the list is a pretty worthwhile intro, and a good way of compiling recommendations, as it produces something a bit different from a poll, the results of which are usually fairly predictable.

A grand list - plenty of excellent films on there.
Seen around 60-65 at a rough count but need to get my arse in gear and catch up with some shameful (and frankly inexplicable) omissions from my viewing history like The Quiet Man, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Grapes of Wrath and Singing in the Rain

Not a bad list. I've seen 76 overall, although some I haven't watched in years. Of the rest, I have about 10 sitting around the house. Need to watch them pronto.

Great list!

Shamefully, I have only seen 28 of them though and liked them all lots apart from 'North By Northwest'.

Of the remaining 72 titles I own 23 on DVD. It's terrible, but I have still to watch a film like 'Wizard of Oz'... Hmmm...

Lots of titles there which I must look into eventually.

A mixed bunch. Great to see Mizoguchi included though of course there should be more by him. The list could do with more by Renoir, Tarkovsky, Ozu too. I don't think i've seen What a Way to Go.

I realise it is quite a long list but would anyone be interested in picking a couple of films (doesn't necessarily have to be one that you chose) and giving a brief paragraph as to why they would recommend it?  Perhaps give readers a little more of an idea about those films they have not heard of/seen...

Just a thought.

I'll post the reviews on the two films I recommended:

Ben-Hur
 
An epic is by definition an aloof and distant genre, filled with people and subjects of distant past that may mean little to today's audiences. Therefore, the best epics must deliver a strong lead with an appealing journey, with the right mix of sensitivity and strength.

Ben-Hur contains all of these in Charlton Heston's Jewish prince as he is cruelly betrayed to the lowest depths of the Roman Empire and gains his way back through remaining who he is and attempts to get revenge with his enemies. Yet Judah Ben-Hur soon learns vengeance is wrong, reuniting with his family and finding happiness in the peaceful new philosophy that emerged during his lifetime, as his own journey intertwined with the figure of his time; Jesus Christ.

Heston may be famous in later years for being portrayed as a gun happy maniac in Michael Moore's doc Bowling For Columbine, but he is extraordinary. Cynics may argue the tale is a soppy propaganda piece for Christianity, but indeed people should realise men find their own self fulfilment in many things, and of course Judah picks love over vengeance. Family, love, happiness, the tale of self fulfilment makes this an amazing ancient fairy tale of cinema.

The film does of course look awesome, with Rome superbly recreated, with many a beautiful set, location and colour tones creating a film that is stunning and emotive. Lastly, the Chariot Race. Still putting many an action sequence to shame with it's cutting, surprising intensity and still, nonetheless beautiful. Ben-Hur is overall, deserving of it's 11 Oscars, which until 1997's Titanic, was a record.

The Wizard of Oz
 
We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of oz! We're off, we're off, we're off, we're off, because of the wonderful things he does! Oh, such perfection is the 1939 screen classic The Wizard Of Oz starring Judy Garland and kick started Arthur Freed's career at MGM.

The Wizard Of Oz is easily one of the most famous films ever made. If we ever went into space and showed aliens a film made by humans, we'd probably show this one. A film about the innocence of youth, the joys of making friends and the comfort of home and family. Judy Garland is perfect as Dorothy, the girl who is swept by a tornado from the monochrome Kansas into the land of Oz and meets delightful and colourful characters like the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, as well as the Wicked Witch Of The West, Glinda the good witch, the Munchkins and the titular Wizard, all in turns funny, scary and delightful. Every performance is pitch perfect.

The film has a panto and theatrical feel to it and of course transports us back to a time of simple pleasures and delights. No doubt this is where the magic lies and and helped elevate the film to universal popularity. Everything is iconic: the film is practically referenced once a week in the world's media. The Wizard Of Oz is a cute, adorable and lovely film that everyone knows. If you haven't seen it, try to turn back the clock to childhood.

I'm sorry, but where on earth is All About Eve?

It's Bette Davis' best performance and one of the greatest scripts of all time.

C'mon!

Anatomy of a Murder (1959) - 4.5



4.5? Ooh i don't like that, a clear 5 imo and the benchmark for every courtroom thriller. A grade acting and dialogue, whilst Preminger's gutsy approach to film making was again evident. Preminger a director who broke all the rules especially with taboo dialogue and the casting of the controversial judge who was also fantastic. Scott and Stewarts best performances.

That's nothing look how tight he's been here:
Arsenic and Old Lace (3) come on, its funny.  Okay, not as funny as His Girl Friday (5) or Bringing Up Baby (4.5), but funnier imo than The Awful Truth (4).
Planet of the Apes (2) - do you just not like Chuck c.f. Ben-Hur (2)?  I'll admit the film has been surpassed, but you've got to give it a fair rating just for that ending.  I'll guess that you'd be marking the rest of the series and the re-imagined bobbins as a 1 or lower.
Papillon and The Great Escape (3.5) - suggests that poor old Steve McQueen is going the way of Chuck Heston. 

, which imo is a very funny film.  Wouldn't give more than 2 to Planet of the Apes, which I must admit isn't a great film, but you've got to give marks for the ending,

Arsenic and Old Lace (3) come on, its funny.  Okay, not as funny as His Girl Friday (5) or Bringing Up Baby (4.5), but funnier imo than The Awful Truth (4).

Nah, Arsenic And Old Lace is Capra-Lite. It's funny in places but just doesn't have the bite as those other films.
 
quote:

Planet of the Apes (2) - do you just not like Chuck c.f. Ben-Hur (2)?  I'll admit the film has been surpassed, but you've got to give it a fair rating just for that ending.  I'll guess that you'd be marking the rest of the series and the re-imagined bobbins as a 1 or lower.

quote:

Wouldn't give more than 2 to Planet of the Apes, which I must admit isn't a great film, but you've got to give marks for the ending.

I did give extra marks for the ending!
 
I must admit I'm not a big admirer of Heston. I find him stiff and stilted and completely without versatilty. That said, he's fine as the cast-against-type Mexican in Welles' Touch Of Evil and he does solid work in Major Dundee.
 
He was also hilarious as the confused gun nut in Michael Moores Bowling For Columbine!
 
My thoughts on Ben-Hur can be found HERE.
 
quote:

Papillon and The Great Escape (3.5) - suggests that poor old Steve McQueen is going the way of Chuck Heston.

No way man. I really like Steve McQueen. His turn in Junior Bonner is one of my favourites of all time, The Sand Pebbles and The Getaway are both excellent, he's wonderfully charismatic in The Magnificent Seven, The Cincinnati Kid and The Thomas Crown Affair and, in my opinion, Towering Inferno is still the best disaster movie ever made.
 
Besides, 3.5 is a decent score! I rate my films like this...
 
5 - Masterpiece
4.5 - Magnificent
4 - Excellent
3.5 - Very Good
3 - Good
2.5 - O.K/Mediocre
2 - Disappointing
1.5 - Poor
1 - Dreadful
 
The only McQueen film that I really don't like is Bullitt. That gets a 2!!!

I've watched far too few of these (only about half). My movie-watching in general over the last 6 months has been sporadic so I think I'll set myself a goal of watching two films per week from the list that I haven't seen. This week: Anatomy of a Murder and A Matter of Life and Death.

Great list, pleased to see some of my favourite John Ford films in there a long with some classics from Leone and Kurosawa. I also have to say Paths of Glory is my favourite Kubrick movie, one of the finest ever films on the futility of war.

I have to say Get Carter should be in there instead of the Italian Job and I think Hitchcock's 39 Steps also deserves a mention.

None the less there are some excellent films here.
