Snob critics ,when they list their top movies ,always seem to pick a lot of foreign films and movies that no one ever saw but themselves and other snob critics.

Jimmy Stewart made some of my favorite westerns. The Naked Spur, Two Rode Together, Winchester '73 and Bend of the River to name a few. Every once in a while a western is still made and I look forward to seeing them. No special effects, just a good old "morality play".

Those lists are always fun and I didn't mind that one. Kane, African Queen, Maltese Falcon would all be top 20 in my book. For sci-fi Blade Runner, Alien, 2001 are in the top 25 or 30.

Every credible list is good fodder for discussion. This one is limited to American films, and with a list that long, obscure little films that the mass media missed can be a good thing. I just let the guy make his case and decide whether or not to give take a chance and watch something I have never heard of.

Did not read the list but agree with a mix of others who posted but for me I have to include To Kill A Mockingbird on my list of favorites. Didn't see it mentioned by anyone else yet.

The person who wrote that article must be rather old, how else do you see movies made before 1960? At the bottom of the page are the 351 films considered for their list - I am guessing I have seen less than half of them.

They have this new thing called DVDs now where you can watch old movies.

He says at the end of the article that he is 52.
