These aren't really the only films from the list I've seen but for the while being I've only included the films that I own on DVD or watched recently.

Note that the Toy Story trilogy is rated as a whole.

'Spartacus' and TKAM are higher on my list, but I still agree that they're both a little overrated.

TKAM should probably be higher than ET and Batman, I don't know why the hell it ended up at its particular spot. I haven't paid much attention to the lower rated films' ranking.

The 5.5 for Spartacus was on a whim, I've only watched it once. I probably would have rated it 6 at the time, but from memory there wasn't much that was interesting about it. Perhaps I'm being unfair, I'd have to watch it again.

P.S. Your Best Movies list is great, it was especially nice to see somebody appreciates Dr Strangelove, A Hard Day's Night and The Incredibles as much as I do :D

Based on your list, some films I'd recommend to you would include (off the top of my head, in no particular order, if you haven't seen them already)...

Brazil - Gilliam [Final Cut]
Modern Times - Chaplin
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Gondry
Vertigo - Alfred Hitchcock
Raiders of the Lost Ark - Spielberg
The General - Keaton
The 39 Steps - Hitchcock
The Graduate - Nichols
Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Spielberg
LA Confidential - Hanson
Network - Lumet
The Game - Fincher

I've watched parts of a few of these, but only Vertigo in full, which I'm planning to rewatch and include on this list. Thank you by the way, I will get around to some of these pretty soon.

No problem, I'll second APR's recommendation of Children of Men below. One of the best sci-fi films of recent times.

Yeah, I'd definitely recommend that third one to just about everyone. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was probably my favorite film of the 2000s. Either that or Children of Men, but I'll usually go with the former because its screenplay is far better, whereas the latter's is kind of weak.
