It is finally time! For four years now I have wanted to make the Top 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… I waited, I watched, and I plotted. I finally feel like it is time to finally make the definitive list.
Please keep in mind, this list is meant to be more than just a movies quality. I can understand that a lot of the older movies are known for being classics and masterpieces… BUT other movies have impacted the culture of society more and, as such, they will be ranked higher then just for the fact that a movie has been traditionally seen as a classic. Also keep in mind that this list will be a little more skewed towards newer movies. NOW, that doesn’t mean the old movies are still going to be present. As a matter of fact, number one and several of the top ones are still going to be the same. But as time has gone on, movies like Contempt have been overpassed by the cultural power of something like The Rocky Horror Picture Show. So just bare in mind the criteria of the list. The films were each judged by the following:
A film’s quality
The Cultural Impact of the Film
The Mechanics of a Film
A Certain Aspect of the Film that Changed Filmmaking in the Popular Culture
All genres will be treated fairly. Dramas will not, and should not, be held in higher regard to horror, comedy, and so forth simply due to the fact they are telling a heavier story
2017 movies are not in the running for the list. But 2016 movies will be in the running to make the list.
*Disclaimer… I am one guy with a personal opinion so some of it may permeate to the placement of the films, though I tried to be as objective as possible. Just keep in mind, unlike other lists that has a score of people. This is one dude assessing hundreds of movies.*
With that being said, choosing the Top 100 was no small feat. In fact even with the soon to be mentioned 50 honorable mentions, I left out a great number of movies that killed me to take off the list. Whenever I went through every movie released from 1900 to 2016, I had a shortlist of 651 potential movies that I could make a case for being in the Top 100. So bare this in mind, that I had to remove 500 worthy contenders before I got to the definitive list. Movies like Jerry Maguire, Good Will Hunting, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Rain Man, The Ten Commandments, A League of their Own, Home Alone, Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Howl’s Moving Castle, The Secret of NIMH, and Grease are all movies that just BARELY missed the cut… So it isn’t something that was particularly easy to do.

I was sitting here thinking of two of my most popular articles. The first one was my best and worst clans from Vampire the Masquerade, which is still my most viewed article to this day, and what your D&D Class Says About You, which is right now in the top ten. With this being considered, I thought to myself, “Hell, let’s just combine them!” So this is me psychoanalyzing all of you once again with What Your Preferred Clan in Vampire the Masquerade says about you.
Basically, this is a series of observations, made by me, about my experience with playing Vampire the Masquerade and the people that I have played with. Knowing what a person enjoys playing the most says a lot about someone and where their general interests lie and this article is to commemorate that.
BUT before I get into this, let me set one ground rule. First and foremost, I will only be covering the thirteen main clans in Vampire the Masquerade. If you like playing a True Brujah, Cappadocian, or something like that for a modern day storyline, then basically you are a special snowflake who has a need to be special and different. No offense intended, but I don’t have time to write every clan and bloodline and I highly doubt that you want to read an internet article that could double as a doctoral dissertation. So with that said, let’s get into it. Continue reading
