Many movies are good, some are great, but only a select few can be
called truly "essential." After long discussions, a fair amount of
bargaining, and a shouting match or two, the staff at Yahoo! Movies has
put together this list of the 100 films you must see before you die. To
choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical
importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we
believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest
movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may
not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic
that you absolutely have to see.
