It's true... Susan has logged on....

And the blogosphere will never be the same. I'm not joking! Watch out Lileks. This will be awesome.

PS David was right; I should not have hesitated on Raiders of the Lost Ark, a truly amazing movie. And not including Godfather II was the result of a very small but highly effective and temporary brain aneurism. I hope it doesn't happen again.

Susan's list is remarkable. I have seen almost all of them and they are terrific. And if you find more than 5 of them coinciding with the blogger top fifteen, I would be amazed. It's a generational thing. I feel slightly embarassed for not having Katherine Hepburn in there; my choice would also have been Bringing Up Baby. And while Susan's summary of Citizen Kane as "your typical story about a boy and a sled" had me in stitches, the movie IS AMAZING. Beside remarkably influential, it is a story of innocence lost ... family, friendship, principles, and love, all taken away or squandered. Now what is more poignant than that?

And if you don't know about it -- and you should -- the best internet site for movies and trivia is www.imdb.com. Please bookmark it. Now. Just do it. Please.
