    That movie list is terrible in my opinion. I’ve seen 31 out of the 100.

  • The film quote is from “Indiscreet”.

    The TIFF List-Important films are not necessarily great ones. Slumdog Millionaire’s inclusion on that list is ridiculous, and this is coming from someone who loved it. (It was my #3 of 2008, behind Dark Knight and Milk.)

    Hunchback of Notre Dame-NOOOOOO! I like the Disney version a lot! (Not right for kids, though.)
