  4. @Brut:

    I know. It's embarrassing.

    I'll be watching the first two Godfather movies tomorrow if all goes to plan though.

    @Blink:

    There are clearly a lot of excellent films missing on the list but it's pretty obvious their focus was on having a broad range of films from different time periods and countries.
