Classic Movie Meme

Ben tagged me on a super fun looking meme!

Get the American Film Institutes's 100 Years... 100 Movies list and answer the following questions:

1) Your favorite 5 movies that are on the list:
(It's hard to pick only 5!)
Star Wars
All About Eve
Amadeus
Duck Soup
The Philadelphia Story


2) 5 movies on the list that you didn't like at all:
Bringing Up Baby
My Fair Lady
The Deer Hunter
Network
West Side Story


3) 5 movies on the list you haven't seen but want to:
The African Queen
The Maltese Falcon
Double Indemnity
The Best Years of Our Lives
Easy Rider


4) 5 movies on the list that you haven't seen and have no interest in seeing:
On the Waterfront
The Sound of Music
The French Connection
(I think that's it. I've actually seen the vast majority of the movies on this list, the few others I haven't seen I feel more indifferent to, I'd watch them but I'm not desperate to see them.)


5) Your favorite 5 movies that aren't on the list:
(Since I figure it's unfair for me to expect a movie like Barbarella or Big Trouble in Little China to show up on a list created by the AFI...I will pick movies that are more in line with their list)
Rope
One, Two, Three
The Thin Man
Contact
Cleopatra


I won't tag anyone but if anyone out there wants to give this meme a try go for it!

Hey, great choice with Hitchcock's Rope - one of his lesser known movies, but actually my favorite. It all takes place in one room, and draws you in like no other film. A masterpiece!

Anon-
Awwww I was surprised but I LOVED Yankee Doodle Dandy. Cagney is such a great actor. UHF is a fab movie! Saw that in the theater :)

Gilligan-
You are right it's really forgotten. Maybe it's because it doesn't have a giant set-piece like so many other of his well-known movies.

John-
It's possible the Marx Brothers were the funniest men who ever lived! Even Zeppo.
