The Top 100 NYC Movies

As you can see, I'm catching up on the blog. 

Back in July, Time Out NY's Joshua Rothkopf edited a list of the best movies set in New York City.  How you begin to categorize movies for this, I'm not sure.  Movies set in NYC?  There are many.  Of TONY's list, these are the ones I'm in total agreement with.  Not C.H.U.D. or The Hunger (really?) or Black Swan.  In most cases, I don't agree with the ranking.
Here they are:
55.  Fame (1980)
44.  Six Degrees of Separation (1993)
41.  The Godfather (1972)
39.   Metropolitan (1990)
35.  Midnight Cowboy (1969)
28.  All That Jazz (28)
23.  42nd Street (1933)
21.  Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
14.  Ghostbusters (1984)
10.  On the Town (1949)
6.  Do the Right Thing (1989)
5.  Manhattan (1979)

TONY's #1 is Taxi Driver.  Which I like, but not at #1.

Oh come on, you don't agree with Annie Hall? American Psycho? Tootsie?

All in all I'd say it was a great list, but the musical nerd in me would have also included Newsies. =)
