Richard Schickel and Richard Corliss, movie critics for Time magazine, have compiled an unranked list of the 100 greatest films. But they insist it's for the fun of it. It was posted on www.Time.com. and included perennially acclaimed flicks like "Lawrence of Arabia," "Casablanca" and "Citizen Kane," but their selesctions also include more atypical films like "Finding Nemo," "Star Wars" and the 2002 Brazilian gang story, "City of God." Some may disagree with their choices, but Schickel says that's the idea. "100 lists are fun to discuss, fun to argue over," Schickel told The Associated Press. "I don't think anybody should say, 'That's it, that's the final 100! No disputing this for the rest of eternity!' You know, stuff changes. Life changes. You change."

Readers may note, however, that w
hile they selected movies that do have Black actors in them, there are no "Black" films on the list, whereas AFI (American Film Institute) has several listed over the years.
