AFI Top 100



AFI top 100 films (revised 2009)

This list is worth less now that has become a popular and not critical listing, with many older classics slipping down or disappearing while new restorations or top box office films from recent decades take their place. The American Film Institute now makes money with a long list of "lists", TV specials, on-line memberships and services, including "manufactured" film festivals across the globe. Still the list is always interesting and the tip film never seems to change. I have some computer compatibility issues with their interactive features, but those who can use them say they are worth a visit for photos, videos and movie music.

Click "read more" below for the top 100 from about fifteen years ago....note links to VHS and DVD, but not up or down ratings arrows or simple box office hits. Links may not work as they are at least 15 year old. For current AFI top 100 click here.
