100 TOP MOVIES

Since I’m always talking about movies on this blog it got me thinking… what are the top movies of all time.  Probably one of the most googled questions of all time.  Well pretty much every source mentions The American Film Institute Top 100 Movies.  The list was comprised from the lists of 1,500 different Movie Critics, Historians, and various members of the Film Industry.  Here is a link to list on the AFI website.  I’ve also pasted it below and to make it more fun I’ve added notes to the movie I’ve seen and my thoughts about them.
