    The Godfather? No. Casablanca? No. It's A Wonderful Life? No.

    Eric's right. It's an intimidating list. But I've seen 65 of the 102 films listed here. Asterisks mean I've seen it. Double asterisks mean I own it, and therefore it's a personal fave. You'll probably be more surprised by the films I have not seen than by the number of films below I've seen. How's about you?
