Spreading the love...
Hehe. I stole it from mirandathejoy, who stole it from a website.
It's actually supposed to be Britain's favorite 100 books and movies. Or the one's Britain considers the best. Not entirely sure on that count.

That would explain all the Pratchett, though. And the lack of utter crap. Bloody Americans.

Personally, I like how all but the Seven Samuria were in their original language (titles for movies that is). I thought you had seen Spirited Away though (48 Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (2001))
