Not too many surprises. The way I did it this time is I took my movie list and put it into Excel. Pulled out any obvious "No's" and then ranked the rest. I figured it wasn't likely there'd be any potential favorites I didn't own, and this would also ensure I'd seen them all twice as per the rule. I did break the rule for Lego Movie, but I was pretty confident it would make the cut, and I ranked it conservatively.

If you look at the official Top 100 page, there's links to one blog post per each movie. I do have two that I'll need to go in and blog, but the rest have already been written up. Either from a previous revision of the list, the first watch in theaters, or part of the DVD catch up. I used to make sure there was a list specific post, but I'd rather try and get new movies than more duplicate entries.

Also on the official page you'll see comparisons with the previous list. Biggest jump goes to 21 Jump Street, jumping 63 spots to the 20s. It also beats out Drop Dead Gorgeous which holds the honor of highest debut. Biggest drop on the list was The Goonies, falling back 80 spots to just barely hang on in the pity spot (I often skip a couple of movies at the end that may have ranked higher if there's something I really want to include). However, Newsies completely fell off the list from 31.

And for some extra fun, I ranked my next 100 too. List is less official. For now, it'll just exist here sans individual posts, but maybe someday I'll go thru 'em too.
