Name five films you'd like preserved for future generations

Danceswithwolves_lAs we reported earlier today, The Library of Congress has added another 25 movies to its National Film Registry, which preserves "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" works for future generations. Some of this year’s selections include Dances With Wolves (pictured, because my editor knows I Iove Kevin Costner), Back to the Future, Bullitt, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The Registry now totals 475 films. Here’s an alphabetical list of the collection from 1989-2006. Which five films would you like to see added next year? I’m thinking: A Christmas Story, The Exorcist, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Wall Street, and When Harry Met Sally…

P.S. I love that Groundhog Day is already on the list.

    I hate all 5 of the movies you suggest going into the registry. The only movie I can think of that I would like to see added is the Daniel Day-Lewis version of The Last of the Mohicans. God I love that movie.

    Hard Boiled: to show how an action movie can be made without the use of CGI.
    El Mariachi & Clerks: to show that you can make a great movie with no money and an unknown cast.
    All 3 Lord of the Rings films. I know that makes 6 films, but so what.

  • Shannon

    I’ll second The Christmas Story, and add Radio Days, Raising Arizona, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    I too was thinking Clerks and also Pulp Fiction, as those films were radical and totally changed movies in the 90s.
    I am happy that Halloween and Rocky Horror are both on there…

  • Dirk Diggler

    Wrecked Em, The Wadfather, Balls of Glory, RoseButt, Debbie Does Dallas and Atlanta and New York….

  • Larry

    The Color Purple, Stand By Me, Age of Innocence, Little Mermaid and 9 to 5

  • CAB431

    Charade, Unberto D, Follow Me, Pulp Fiction, Spaceballs

    How is there no Kubrick on this list?!?!
    2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, A Clockwork Orange… and one for fun: Adventures in Babysitting. I LOVE that movie!

  • Pablo

    Moulin Rouge, definitely. Does it matter it has an Aussie director?

  • Scott

    Reservoir Dogs, Fight Club, Dazed & Confused.
    To Krikky: Kubrick is on the list: Dr. Strangelove and 2001. I didn’t check the whole list, but I saw those two.

  • Aeryn

    Lord of the Rings – all 3 films

  • Dirk Diggler

    I agree, just like me, Bigger, Longer and Uncut.
