I have seen 9 of those. I haven't even heard of a lot of them. There are a good number of films on there that I'd never have dreamt about watching pre-14, 'Some like it hot' and 'To kill a mocking bird' for example. Also, the failure to include any of the good Disney films makes the list completely void.

Hurrah for Spirited Away, more recognition of its brilliance.
Also nice to see Totoro in the list, wonderful little film. Just a shame it's not available in the UK yet.

Adding to the list of what other films should be in there, The Castle of Cagliostro and A Christmas Story both spring to mind, a couple of excellent family films.
Edit: and the Muppet Movie and Caper should be in there too.

Heh.

I'd steer towards animal scatfest IV - but whatever floats your boat.

That's not the Australian one is it?

In some ways, that'd be a good one.

Well, a young naked Jenny Agutter at least.

I personally don't rate that version. At all. The original dialogue in the modern context, while different, just doesn't work. The Zeffirelli version from the 60's is the definitive one for me.
