AFI's 100 Best Songs From Movies

Ok, what are the worst? I see some I consider clunkers just on this list. (We're Off on the) Road to Morocco?

You might also want to look at The 1,000 Best Movies Ever Made
(This may not be a permanent link.)

Glancing at the list i am reminded that I am still mad that Blockbuster sold me an unmarked edited version of Y Tu Mama Tambien, the director of which has just done Harry Potter 3.

Looking up that movie in the database shows a cool feature - similar movies. Which could be useful as you go to rent DVD's.

Two or Three Things I Know About Her (1966, Jean-Luc Godard)
Amarcord (1974, Federico Fellini)
Human Traffic (1999, Justin Kerrigan)
Kevin & Perry Go Large (2000)
Going Places (1974, Bertrand Blier)
Amores Perros (2000, Alejandro González Iñárritu)
Harte Jungs (2000, Marc Rothemund)
Les Filles Ne Savent Pas Nager (2000, Anne-Sophie Birot)
I Vitelloni (1953, Federico Fellini)
Una Noche Con Sabrina Love (2001, Alejandro Agresti)
Jules and Jim (1962, François Truffaut)
Good Bye, Lenin (2002, Wolfgang Becker)
Losin' It (1982, Curtis Hanson)
Masculin/Feminin (1966, Jean-Luc Godard)

I like many other movies better, Y Tu Mama Tambien sticks out for me because of the Blockbuster travesty.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is a personal favorite and introduced Antonio Banderas to American audiences.

I haven't seen any of these SIMILAR MOVIES

The Opposite of Sex (1998, Don Roos)
La Ciénaga (2001, Lucrecia Martel)
Time's Up (2001)
El Otro Lado de la Cama (2002, Emilio Martínez-Lázaro)
Papi Chulo (2003, Linda Mendoza)
