During my selection process for this list, my almost-final long-list stalled at a little over 150 films. As I’m posting these in alphabetical order, I can now list some of the also-rans that almost made it but, for one reason or another, didn’t.

The Adventures of Robin Hood
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Battle Royale
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Closer
Collateral
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Cruel Intentions
eXistenZ
The Fugitive
The Godfather Part II
Goldfinger
Hilary and Jackie
A History of Violence
Independence Day
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Inside Man
Interview with the Vampire
Jaws
JFK
Kill Bill: Vol. 2
.

That’s only 21, with another 34 to be revealed next time — which does make me wonder if I just got harsher as I moved through an alphabetical list!

Tomorrow, the second half begins…
