100 Movies To See Before You Die

Yahoo recently came out with their list of 100 movies that you should see before you die. Yahoo explained their choices by saying, "To choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic that you absolutely have to see."

Which have you seen? Which do you want/not want to see? Which shouldn't be on the list and what movies should be in their place?

I put IMDB links in for the ones I've seen, so they appear in bold. 35 out of 100 isn't too awful, right?!
