Top 100 Movies

Time magazine has a list of the top 100 movies of all time, as selected by their movie critics. It's a pretty odd list- a lot of older movies and a few weird modern choices- Drunken Master 2? Pulp Fiction? Finding Nemo? No Toy Story? And Star Wars makes the list ahead of Empire Strikes Back? Miller's Crossing is the only Coen brothers film I can see- The Big Lebowski isn't even on the list. It's crazy. Makes no sense at all. Really strange emphasis on early cinema and no understanding of the modern field. These guys are completely unknown to me but if they think that Taratino deserves to be on this then they need to, I don't know, get out to the cinema more.
