      Hi cogerson. I love Japanese cinema. I think I've seen more Japanese films than anyone I know. Kurasawa and Miyazaki top my list.

      As for "Dr. Zhivago", it's not one of my personal favorite films. I admire the style and artistry of it, but it's not something I would watch a second time. I tried hard not to let my personal preferences affect by critical judgments here. So I included some movies that i didn't really like, and "Dr. Zhivago" is one of them.

      Thanks for reading my movie list. It feels good when people rediscover it after all this time.

      Let's see I have seen 28 of the 50 movies....and there are I have not heard of...and they all seem to be movies from Japan.....I guess I need to broaden my horizons.

      3 more that would be on my Top 100....The Good, The Bad and The Ugly....All The President's Men.....and Star Wars: Empire Strikes back.....with Star Wars looking to get in.

      DOCTOR ZHIVAGO is probably one of the few classics that I have never even wanted to see....John Cusack's character in Must Love Dogs....says Doctor Zhivago is the best movie ever....seen hearing that in a movie....Doctor Zhivago has moved up the list of movies to watch.

      10 Top 100 movies...and 2 possibles....from your 300-101 list.

      oops! I answered 51-100 before this one.

      I have seen only 20 of these. I will go into more detail like favourites etc. another day. I will say further, though, that M is taped and ready to be seen.

      Thanks, HH. I think all the films here are excellent and if you ever get a chance to see any of them, they're worth watching.

      Thanks Lady E. These are all films I think every film lover should see. Oh, by the way, I was counting the hubs down backwards, so 300-251 is number one and 1-50 is number six. That's why this is number 4.

      Thanks for commenting.
