  1. Your list is as good as any, and has diversity. Some of the movies I don't care for: South Park, Austin Powers, Slumdog, but you do have many on there that I might include on mine as well. I might even take Avatar off there, and include one of Cameron's other films: The Terminator or Titanic (I know some may gawk at that choice).

    I might include: Night of the Hunter, The Last Picture Show, Crumb, Diva, Blue Velvet, Leaving Las Vegas, Taxi Driver, Down By Law, Red River (or another John Wayne), The Third Man, Pinocchio (or some animated Disney), In The Heat Of The Night or A Patch of Blue, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Cool Hand Luke, Citizen Kane--there are so many to choose from....

  2. India has likewise delivered 3D adaptation motion pictures like "hanuman" or "Bal Ganesh". kissanime
