news//THE TALK FILM SOCIETY 100 GREATEST FILMS



Recently, The Hollywood Reporter released a list of Hollywood's 100 favorite films. It was a great mix of some of the best cinematic treats in history. This week, a list was released by the Talk Film Society that includes some more modern fare mixed in with classics.

The list was comprised after "over 100 members of the Talk Film Society gave us their Top 25 Greatest Films lists. Those, along with 11 Genre Polls conducted on Twitter (@TalkFilmSoc), have made up the #TFS100 list."

I counted up 74 of the 100 that I've seen. While I'd probably make some adjustments to how certain films are ranked on the list, it's still a pretty darn good list, if I do say so. How many have you seen?
