I put Shawshank in my honorable mentions, and have since submitting my ballot thought of two movies I forgot to consider one of which would have likely made my top 100 the other definitely would have been in my honorable mentions and would have been considered ahead of Shawshank also. Should have know that would happen.

It's a shitter when you forget something. I had my ballot done but made two adlibs today to it.

I decided to do twelve honourable mentions, one for each month.

Part of me wants to say that you are dead to me, but I still have Shawshank in my Honorable Mention pile while working through #1 to #60 as I am trying to find room for legit great movies like The Godfather Part II and stuff only I would put on a list like Branded to Kill or A Nightmare On Elm Street .

Knowing me, I will find a way to shoehorn Shawshank into the Top 20 at least.

Hey. Branded to Kill for sure and maybe even Nightmare on Elm St. will be on mine.

Fuck a Shawshank tho.

Now see.  I almost DESPISE musicals as a rule, but despite my best effort to hate West Side Story off of my list, I am all "Holy shit, this is a great fucking story," every time I watch it.

It also helps that Rita Moreno (Anita) is tucking hot like lava in this.

Right now, the glaring omission on my list is the result of Fuck a Gone With The Wind sentiment. 

A piece of my soul dies every time Prissy alerts Miss O'Hara that the Union Army is approaching even though I should like this movie because it really is about Rhett sonning Scarlett because she is a pampered, entitled, backstabbing bitch.

Speaking of musicals (if you will) - I am going to be honest. If Debbie Reynolds hadn't died I would have totally forgotten Singin' in the Rain

I put Malcolm X at #50.

Fuck all haters.

The only thing that bothers me about putting it in that spot on my ballot is that it is ranked above Ran, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and All Quiet On The Western Front.

Then again, I have Silence of the Lambs and Gojira ranked above those movies, too, and I am oddly good with that.

I'm already in the 130s. May need to call it a day and just regret not having certain movies listed so I can spend more time meticulously ordering them in vain.

What's so funny is I realized I am being TOO picky. I have 93 on a list and about 20 of them I already plan on replacing before I am done.

Oh and knocked Citizen Kane off my pile of shame today.

Obviously probably the biggest one on the pile (though there are one or two others that could be in the conversation)

Arguably, you have probablu seen 75% of the movie via the Simpsons and other pop culture references.

I already knew at age 10 what Rosebud was thanks to Trivial Pursuit

The charlie kane song

The snowglobe

The election speech 

The xanadu/gate scene

Peanuts used to spoil that one constantly as well.

That's a pretty quick turnaround for Trivial Pursuit. Hadn't the movie just been released when you were 10?

I didn't miss you THAT much

And yeah - the original Trivial Pursuit loved Citizen Kane, Casablanca and North by Northwest

I just remember that 10 year old me thought North by Northwest sounded like the coolest movie ever

This will be one of the least shocking things I say

Yeah honestly I think I'm gonna cry compiling this with the sheer number of movies.

I probably would set the over/under at a 1000 movies (the 90s had over 700)

I know if I submitted a list what my #1 and what my #100 would be and just beat my brain inside out trying to figure out 2-99

The more ballots I get the less pressure I feel trying to make my ballot perfect
