My dear friend and fellow pirate, [livejournal.com profile] therobbergirl, recently shared a meme listing a bunch of movies ("Mark the ones you've seen"; you know how these things go); we agreed that the list seemed pretty random. Here, by contrast is a more arbitrary list: Roger Ebert's List of Great Movies (last updated in 2005).

There are 334 movies on this list, and, since it's Ebert, the list presumably includes films you can't stand and excludes films you thought were the bestest thing ever; one of my favorites, The Princess Bride, for example, didn't make it. Bold the ones you've seen and post your numbers: I've seen 104 of these.
