Looks like you found a typo. Blair Witch is listed twice, the second one with the Paranormal Activity box. Good catch.

I`m with the "Face Off blew it for me" crowd, but the vast majority are great suggestions. I estimate I own about 180 of these.

@mykunter Nope, there are 245 (12 rows of 16, plus 53 others).

I have seen about 20 of these- all quite modern, no blade Runner for example, as someone said- no Forrest Gump ( tosh - but good tosh) - seems to be missing quite a few seminal films.

"Ghost In The Shell", not on the animated list!

"Alien" not on the sci-fi list... but in the horror section, ridiculous. First and foremost a sci-fi movie and an absolutely essential one.

Layer Cake.. lol

@Beaux66: You mean "Memento" with 2 "e" right? Not the Portugese film "Momento" (2002).
It was good, there`s a few it could replace. I`d put Mothman Prophecies in there too. However, a lot of people like their films "fully explained" and things like this which force the viewer to figure it out are often frowned upon.

Also: Primer. Just because it`s awesome.

As a horror fan i am mildly upset that the paranormal activity poster is shown for Blair Witch Project. Also if you are going to have halloween and friday the 13th include nightmare on elmstreet.Not really impressed by the entire list in general.

Momento is one of the best movies ever made. It should definitely be on a list of 245.

this was made by a single anon, yet he put the `board` on the title like it was a collaboration

I assure, most of the movies mentioned in OUR comments were mentioned on that board`s comments

The only section on this list I have no problems with is the Westerns.

No Fight Club, Requiem for a Dream, or American Psycho? Plus Spiderman over The Dark Knight? And no Nightmare Before Christmas in animation?

Boo, hiss, etc.

"I counted 212. Is that right? I`m not counting again."

Is that right that is what you counted? Perhaps. Is that how many movies are pictured? I don`t believe so.

16 columns, 19 rows, 59 empty spots
16 x 19 - 59 = 245

There`s a few I`d object to, since they were crap.
But there`s several I`m glad to see make the list, since they were terrific!

And it`s nice to see 3 films based on PK Dick`s stories :-)

@robthelurker: Totally correct! Wizard of Oz ought to be on any "top 245" list.
Gone With The Wind?
Apocalypse Now?
Koyaanisqatsi?
Rocky Horror Picture Show?
West Side Story?

This list could use a few fewer "westerns" IMHO...

@Korahn...I was thinking that as The African Queen was the first thing I searched on netflix...Maltese Falcon the second; Citizen Kane the third...I didn`t find any. Canadian Netflix is cheap as fcuk.

"Whose "essential" list?"

Read the top left of the picture, under where it says "Essential films".

Not an "Essential List" at all just a random list of movies.
Out of 245 you`re bound to get a couple right.
