The Walrus BS: The 100 greatest movies of all time (145* d) RE: BS: The 100 greatest movies of all time 07 Jul 07


I've noticed one problem with some of the lists posted above.

There are film titles being posted which are ambiguous.
Q mentions 'Moulin Rouge' - but which film? The recent musical or the Toulouse-Latrec biopic?
Wesley S mentions 'All Quiet on the Western Front" but again, the Lew Ayres classic or the 'John-boy Walton' version?

I would put "The Four Feathers" on the list, but the 1939 Korda version, not the 1950s (three Kitcheners) film nor the appalling the 1979 (Powell/Bridges) version (and as for the 2004 parody, well I've flushed better).

Where titles have been reused or there are several versions, please specify which.
