    This is is just pure love for the movies

    I watched the AFI list slowly come out on DVD back in the 90s. It will be interesting to see how the list fills out over time.

    I have a message to Kosty to get his list as well

    Manchurian Candidate 1962 remade '04?
    HD DVD: 60
    Blu-Ray: None

    Wow, I'm surprised there is nothing on the list from the past 10 years. In fact, there are only 8 movies on there from 1990 on with the latest being Fargo in 1996.

    DAMN SONY ALL TO HELL!!

    How dare they have the rights to On the Waterfront. Along with Citizen Kane, Casablanca, and The Godfather 1 & 2, this movie is one of the most beautiful and exquisite films ever made! And Brando's best performance ever!

    Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
    we have very little reason to be interested in them.

    Oh, and BTW. . .

    The rights to Birth of a Nation are owned by Kino, and I think Image Entertainment also owns some part of it. On its original release, D.W. Griffith produced almost the entire film on his own and released to theaters by Epoch Producing Corp.

    haha yea but sony is pretty lame. they make a ton of the movies only on blu-ray and the majority of their transfers either suck or just average. even casino royale didnt get more than 4 stars. not saying that 4 stars is bad but saying that having the most anticipated next gen dvd release so far (yes, casino royale is the number one anticipated hd movie and will be for a while) not be perfect or even almost perfect is not a good thing. i would say sthat out of all the major movie companies that are producing all of their movies in hd (sony, buena vista, universal, weinstein, paramount, lionsgate, warner bros), sony is by far the most dissapointing. none of their transfers are where they could and should be. they have to seriously step it up and what i mean by stepping up is that they better announce Spider-Man 1 and Spider-Man 2 soon and those reviews on this site better be 5/5 stars for video quality.

    The 100 years, 100 films came out in 1997. Consequently nothing after 1996 is on it. The tenth anniversay will be in June of this year. They may do some updates at that time. It will be interesting to watch. In the meantime, I am buying everything on this list that shows up in blu-ray. It is a good starting list for a movie collection.

    Excuse my eternal ignorance again, but aren't the pre-1960's MGM films owned by Warners?? If so, then "The Best Years of our Lives," and "Some Like It Hot" should be green?
    If I'm wrong, I apologize. Still trying to figure out this rights issue,

    This has to be one of my favorite lists. I own every one of these movies on DVD except The Jazz Singer, Wuthering Heights, The African Queen and Snow White. Even so, I'm sure I'll eventually replace all of these movies on HD. I love the Classics, and, IMO, they are all must-haves.

    I appreciate the post.

    Sarang - you are far from being a smart-ass. Here is a list of 200 great films by Roger Ebert. Since it is not restricted to any one country, it provides greater resources to draw upon.
