Everybody has a list. And when you do what I do, you have to have more than one list. Nine out of ten times, when someone first meets me and finds out what I do for a living, they ask, "So then, what's your favorite movie?" And sometimes I chuck out a few titles, and other times I launch into this longer-than-it-should-be explanation on why one cannot have a favorite movie, or even five favorite movies. But what about 100 favorite movies? Could you name your 100 favorite movies?
Well, this dude did. In the video above, someone created a montage featuring clips from their 100 favorite movies, counting down from 100 all the way to numero uno. It's a bit schizophrenic to watch, but I've gone through it a couple times now, and there are some really fun moments in there, editing-wise. Of course you're not going to agree with all their choices (whichever ones you manage to decipher during the brief second they flash on screen), but it's a cool little tribute and, well, I'm sort of jealous. Because now when someone asks this person what their favorite movie is, they can send over this link and let the video speak for itself.
Question: What's a good amount of movies to have on a favorites list? Should everyone have a top 10, a top 20, a top 50? What number is too little and what number is too much?
