I've only seen a handful, though a few more are on my to-watch list. BTW, I recommend October Sky.

Huh. I didn't even know there was another Maltese Falcon besides the famous Humphrey Bogart one.

There are some strange picks on that list. Zathura? Hildago? Neither are bad, but I would never think to put them on a list of great films. Idiocracy is an interesting pick because it never had a wide release in theaters, but found a second life on DVD. I'd say it's now pretty well-known among our generation.

Cult movies like Mirrormask, on the other hand, are more in line with what I'd expect to see on a list like this.

I liked Hidalgo emotionally, but it wasn't very deep, IMO.
