That Movie Meme

You’d think a comprehensive list would’ve caught everything… but no. Missing from that list is the must-see Chaplin film, The Great Dictator and the brilliant Laurel and Hardy short, The Music Box. And I say that Plan Nine from Outer Space should be seen, perhaps especially by film students, as a great example of what can (and/or shouldn’t?) be done on a nothing budget. Also, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. In an attempt to be important, the 1001 Movies You Have To See Before You Die list left out some movies that are just flat entertaining.

Edit: Good night nurse. I just realized Inherit the Wind isn’t on the list. That is an oversight not only of epic proportions, but of Cecil B. DeMille proportions.
