Just seems odd to me that it took 40+ years for Breakfast at Tiffany's and Anatomy of a Murder to get in, but The Matrix clocks in at just over a decade.

Glad to see "A Christmas Story" made the list. I'm on the fence about "A League of Their Own."

On this kind of list I'm not really opposed to anything. I'd preserve them all if I could.

I checked out the "master" list, and if we were to focus on the early 90s as a place to pick a film (which itself is arguable), then it doesn't make sense to pick a lightweight comedy over several other possibilities. For example, there are no films representing David Lynch, Oliver Stone, Tarantino, or Robert Altman's great comedies of the period, "The Player" and "Short Cuts". The selections for directors like the Coens, Soderbergh, Jarmusch, Van Sant, Demme, and other members of what's considered the independent movement of the 80s-90s, are very token, and hardly representative. So, yeah, "League" looks even weaker considering the options. Even wanting a "feminine" film should have turned up "Gas Food Lodging" or "Fried Green Tomatoes" instead, or "Thelma and Louise", "Heathers", or "Heavenly Creatures" instead.

I'll take "Thelma or Louise" or "Heathers" any day over "League", but whatever. It's still a good film. It just seemed like an odd choice.
