Although nominating movies sounds easier than watching 1000 movies, those would probably be 3 months of my life I'd want back.
I think this list might be better than the NY Times one, they update it every year and it has a good mix of mainstream and lesser known movies: http://www.icheckmovies.com/list/100...before+you+die

This is another one:

Those are way better lists! At least the some of the movies I've seen on both are lightyears better than IMDB list, Imo.

54 - I'd say about 3/4 of those were movies that had been made before the '90s. I don't watch a lot of new cinema, mostly because I expect to be disappointed and/or bored. My goal is to be the last man on Earth not to have seen Avatar in any way, shape or form.

Question for the people who've seen only around 10% or less of the movies on the list: what's the reason? Are you really young? Do you not like watching movies? Do you not watch Hollywood movies? Or are you one of those who'd rather go see the new Katherine Heigl rom-com on its opening day rather than seeing a new movie by say Martin Scorsese?

I like watching movies, but mostly less known ones and foreigns. Also, there's a lot of films that i think should get better rating on IMDB, maybe i just have an odd taste. I have most of these films on dvds but i haven't got the time to watch them (i have 40 unwatched dvds :p ). example : Synecdoche New York is not on the list eventhou it's considered as the best film from the last decade by Roger Ebert (and me, obviously).

I don't watch too many movies. But I'm starting to do it lately. I have a 50 movie contest on my own for summer and i've already watched 4 movies.

ooh fun!

97 for me ...although, really i felt like adding some movies (like Rocky for example) that I haven't actually sat through and watched beginning to end ...but i feel like i've seen since they used to replay those types of movies endlessly on sunday afternoons when i was a kid and i'd watch at whatever point i happened upon...
