    Great call on The Town.
    I too thought of The Big Short immediately. And Spotlight and Rush are also two greats.

    Spotlight isn’t on the list? Fuck me.

    I don't watch a ton of newer movies. I'd rather rewatch Raiders or Shawshank. I didn't realize how bad it was.
    Of the top 100, I have seen a grand total of 1.
    Yep. O-N-E.
    The only thing on that list I've seen is Zero Dark Thirty, and I've seen it probably more than a dozen times.

    That is a great list. That none of them are on the AV Club list justt shows what a joke it is. I'm not sure they would make my top 100 if I bothered to put one together. I haven't even seen all of them, but I know enough about those movies to know it is a joke to leave them all off.

    I'm surprised I didn't notice that Spotlight and Logan are both missing. They are just so damn well done.

    I bolded the ones I've seen and I agree that all of them should have been included -- except The Greatest Showman. Holy shit was that dull. I stopped watching it after 30 minutes. I'm not big on musicals.

    It was included in the 1990s list, when it was called "Heat."

    I know she acknowledged it's not a complete list, but not having a single character from "The Paper" in there is a bad omission.

    Also needed George Clooney's character from "One Fine Day" and Ed O'Neill's from "Blue Chips," if for no other reason than to call them out for blowing major scoops by revealing them in large press conferences.

    I love Denzel as an actor, but he was miscast in The Pelican Brief, which I recently rewatched. I didn't buy him as a journalist. He doesn't slum down well.

    Also, why Hoffman and Redford and not Jason Robards? She has Tom Hanks playing Bradlee in The Post. He does gruff way better than Hanks.

    Not convinced she watched all those movies.
