... and the movie meme

From oursin again, these are the films that Roger Ebert apparently claims are the ones every true film buff should have seen. I've bolded those I've seen, italicized those I haven't but want to, and crossed out those I have no interest in. The rest I have no opinion either way.

Um, I guess I'm a film buff, or something like one, because I've seen more of these than not...
