First, let's start with the 10 glaring omissions from this list that I kept waiting to see and just never saw:
  • The Crying Game
  • Wag the Dog
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Babe
  • Babe: Pig In the City
  • Eve's Bayou
  • One False Move
  • Four Weddings and a Funeral
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • The Hunt for Red October
More on the problems I have with the top 90 themselves when I get some more time.

This list won me over by putting Rushmore and Hoop Dreams in its Top 10... as a side note if there is anyone that reads this post that hasn't seen Hoop Dreams, go take care of that.

I'm sure there are some omissions that will jump out to me after I've looked at it a little more... otherwise most of my issues are nitpicky and about relative rank.

(I'm also realizing I have to double check when movies came out... I could have sworn Requiem for a Dream was late 90's but it was really 2000, for example)

... and there are a few dumb comedies I might put up there near the end, like a personal favorite - Wayne's World.

I love Hoops Dreams, but I am not a big fan of Rushmore (as you will see as soon as I finish my version of the top 90).

Jurassic Park?
Titanic?
Ghost?
Dances with Wolves?
Mrs Doubtfire?
Goldeneye?

This list is total shit. This is some 16 years old "film buff" list.

What an awful list. Bottle Rocket is 21 but American Beauty is 89?

Dances with Wolves is a painfully boring movie. Goldeneye also wasn't very good. Jurassic Park should have made the list, though.

Goldeneye was one of the best Bond movies of all time! That movie is excellent! It's a far cry better than the Game or Out of Sight.

Edit: I assume you agree with me on the rest of those movies though.

Ghost is top 90 borderline, perhaps. Ms. Doubtfire is probably top 150 or so. Titanic... eh... maybe top 90. I wouldn't say it's a lock. I am still in the progress of making my list. Actually, I'm on a conference call at the moment. I'll finish it once this actual work slows down.

I screwed up the numbers on this because there were just too many good movies. I will unleash my list in tiers (because that's how I ranked them in the first place). The 7th tier will be the honorable mention movies that did not quite make the top 102:

Ghost
Quiz Show
The Hunt for Red October
The Game
Scream 2
A Few Good Men
Malcolm X
The Full Monty
Notting Hill
Total Recall

It was tough to leave a few of these off my big board. I love all of these movies. It goes to show you how difficult it really is to make a list like this for a whole decade of film. Nonetheless, the list soldiers on.
