This year's AFI "100 Years..." list

The American Film Institute unveiled their tenth anniversary edition of the "100 Years, 100 Movies" list last night, and thanks to the TiVo and a light night at work, I was able to see the whole thing. Very interesting, and there have been a lot of changes froom the first list, in 1998. The Wizard of Oz dropped from number six to ten, but at least it's still in the top ten, and among some very good company. (That other big movie from 1939, Gone with the Wind, also fell, from four to six, but Singin' in the Rain is now the top ranked musical.) For an interesting side-by-side comparison of the two lists, take a look at this entry on Wikipedia.
