13/01/2007 11:38 GMT

So as an exercise if over the next couple of days i will post part of this list in cronological order to see how many of these film you have seen and which onnes you recommend. (please don't blame me for which films made or did not make this list it was done by so called experts [aka pompus knowitall])

A Trip to the Moon--well it'd be on anyone's list, but only survives as a truncated print. Some French company owns the rights to Melies' films, havn't seen any of them without their logo.
Ditto The Great Train Robbery--but no The Story of the Kelly Gang? No Fantomas?

No, it is the silent film made the salvos. It is recognized as the first full length film made in the world. Martin's article will probably have the correct length, but I think it is about 90 mins or longer.

On to the teens...and their list is badly shown up. Arbuckle, Keaton, Chaplin...what they've never heard of them? Birth of a Nation and Caligari had to be there--if they missed them too...!

It must be like most award show, that is if it is a comedy then it must not be any good.

The '20s...More films than the previous two decades, but still some striking omissions...Safety Last gave us the image of Harold Lloyd hanging off a clock face on a tall building, and it's a pretty fun film...I think The Lodger is one of Hitchcock's best...The Jazz Singer is famous for sound, but doesn't have much else going for it...An Andalusian Dog? Well, the list of only of things you're supposed to see, not enjoy!

Since you seem to really like typing out big long lists, perhaps you could leave a list of all of the movies in the download section. That way members can examine the list and make comments about specific films.

I know I would be interested. I have seen a truck load of films, some pretty obscure and I would love to hear other peoples perspective of them.
