The ones I voted for, as in the ones that shouldn't have appeared for a hell of a long time yet. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (#3 on my ballot) Spirited Away (#9 on my ballot) L.A. Confidential (#14 on my ballot) The Deer Hunter (#17 on my ballot) Picnic at Hanging Rock (#19 on my ballot)
The very good to great: Rosemary’s Baby Zodiac Toy Story American Beauty Aliens Good Will Hunting The Royal Tenenbaums Inglourious Basterds A Separation The Big Lebowski The meh: Titanic Carol The Shining The (only) one I don't like The Sound of Music
I guess that fact that 6 of my Top 20 and 12 in total of the 50 I voted for have already appeared is good and bad.

Love to see E.T. and The Wizard of Oz place so high. I remember E.T. being in the 95-100 range last time there was a poll like this, so the upward trajectory is great to see.
As much as I love Linklater and the Before trilogy, I'm honestly starting to find Before Sunrise a little overrated by this board.
I was prepared for an influx of very recent films on the list (I'd actually be curious to see what a list like this would look like with a 5-year waiting period for a film to be eligible), but man seeing La La Land in the top 100 should provide some fun reactions.
Love La La Land (my #28), The Shawshank Redemption, Raiders of the Lost Ark (my #14), The Departed (my #41), Back to the Future, Saving Private Ryan (my #13), The Apartment, The Rules of the Game (my #36), The Conversation, Mad Max: Fury Road, 12 Angry Men, Birdman, The Prestige (my #6), Her (my #42), The Last Picture Show, Fight Club (my #11), Stalker, City Lights, The Passion of Joan of Arc, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the King, Jaws, The Dark Knight (my #1), All About Eve, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Great start (The Departed thru 12 Angry Men is a fantastic run), but it loses a little bit of steam by the end. I don't dislike it, but I'll never understand the praise for The Wizard of Oz. I hate every part of it, and I'll never understand the love for Synecdoche, New York.
Ahh, I'm so happy to see The Last Picture Show so high. I expect my top three to make the top 50 (Eternal Sunshine, Lost in Translation, and The Graduate) so that makes me happy. Sad Beginners couldn't place anywhere (unless there's a surprise Top 50 placement, but doubtful). Not a bad list, though there's always a chance for the recency bias with these polls (hence the high Moonlight and La La Land placements.
