My 100 Favorite Movies of All Time (as of today)

Now, I'm not claiming that these are all necessarily great cinematic achievements (though I do think that some of them are), but they're all -- for one reason or another -- favorites of mine. I've listed them in chronological order (by release date according to IMDB), since I like them for so many different reasons and in so many different ways that I don't want to measure them against each other to try to rank by how much I like them or anything like that.
