Must Watch Movies

I created a list of movies that I felt I must watch compiled from several sources: 1. AFI 100 Greatest Movies, 2. Every Best Picture Winner, 3. Rotten Tomatoes best reviewed film of each year, 4. BBC's 100 Best Foreign Films, 5. Documentary Now Spoofed Films, 6. Rotten Tomatoes 200 best reviewed Horror Films. As you can imagine there is a quite a bit of overlap between sources. I'll annotate for each film. When I have spare time, I want to watch the best movies ever made. And occasionally Strange Brew. I'll add films as I watch them.
