Author Comments: 

I split the list into two sections because the 250 has a bias towards more recent films.

I included both English and foreign-language titles for some of the more obscure foreign films. But I didn't feel like writing "Wo hu cang long" along with "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

Comments and clones welcome.

All I can say is - some of these movies that are waiting for you are really good. So I hope you'll enjoy watching them. ;)

Yeah? Any you would particularly recommend?

I haven't seen them all yet (I'm missing a few titles from this list).

But my favourites one would be: Rebecca, Doctor Zhivago, Gladiator and Cinderella Man. ;)
