Top 100 Movies

It seems that just about every web site and organization affiliated with the film industry has an opinion as to the Top 100 movies ever made. Of course, the list changes every year as new movies are released and once-discarded films are suddenly deemed “classics”. Any listing of the Top 100 movies ever made is going to be subjective, based upon the opinion of the list's compiler.

One of the most recent lists of best movies is from the American Film Institute (AFI). The AFI has put together a list - compiled after consultation with diverse members of the film community - of the Top 100 movies (American) of all time. Only movies made in the first 100 years of American cinema (1896-1996) are included.
