“100 Movies to See Before You Die” – You Better Get Started

“100 Movies to See Before You Die” – You Better Get Started: "

Many late night coffee runs, impassioned arguments, and hundreds of edits later, we couldn’t be more proud of Yahoo! Movies’ second installment of the “100 Movies to See Before You Die” list. This time we focused on the “Modern Classics” – movies that shaped pop culture and ushered in the next phase of film-making over the last 20 years.

We realize there are many movie lists out there, but several things set Yahoo! Movies and our definitive “100 Movies to See Before You Die” lists apart from the others. To begin with, we do not concentrate solely on American fare —over 20% of the “Modern Classics” are movies from abroad, representing France, China and other countries. What also sets us apart is the painstaking attention we paid to creating a full representation of the last two decades of cinema. Whether your movie preferences are based upon laughs or tears, this is a list that has more than a few options for everyone.

Creating this list was incredibly enjoyable, but the fun really starts when we go live with the list: it’s your comments and honest opinions we most look forward to. Just a few short days after posting the list, we have now received over 5,000 comments on the site, not including Facebook and Twitter responses. As die-hard film fans we love nothing more than a healthy discourse about the 100 films you’ll see on Yahoo! Movies. So enjoy and please weigh in!
