My favorite 200 movies.. ?

Well.. I've presented which movies I've seen, of the AFI top 100 films, as well as the imdb top 250.

I don't know how many movies I've seen. About 4,000 I know about, of which I've seen about a 1,000 in a cinema. I've got somewhere in between 1,500 and 2,000 on video (DVD, Bought VHS and Taped VHS).

Out of some kind of curiosity, I've done a list of the top 200 films I've seen, out of which I've selected 100 movies I guess would pass for the Top 100.

The main reason for still making a Top 200 list is because. Having seen such a lot of movies, I've seen way more than 100 or 200 movies I like a lot. I guess I'd be fairly ok with a list of 500 movies. I did a selection which was of 267 movies, then deleted until I reached 200, since I wanted to present a nice, even number. Coming down to 210 was fairly easy, the last 10 tho, really really hurted each and everyone. That's essentially why I present a list of 200 instead of only the selected top 100. Maybe 50 of the top 100 is obvious, the other 50 could, more or less, be exchanged with any of the other 100 in the list.

Those in bold, are the Top 100 ones.
