January 13th, 2012

The American Film Institutes ‘s 100 Years, 100 Movies is an archive of the best films of the last 100 years. Determined by a jury of 1,500 film artists, critics and historians the films presented are classics such as Rear Window and Citizen Kane, more modern films like The Godfather and Rocky, and even newer blockbusters like Titanic and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings.

Watching all 100 greatest movies ever made is a “bucket list” choice for many people, but how to go about locating and viewing all 100 movies? Well, Blockbuster has made it easy and simple, with their AFI’s Top 100 list! There’s even a handy button you can use to add all of the films to your queue, watching the best movies has never been more simple.

Below are some of our favorites that made the list!

Sophie’s Choice

In 1949 aspiring writer, and film narrator, Stingo moves to Brooklyn where becomes embroiled in the lives of an unsteady couple, Holocaust survivor Sophie and research chemist Nathan. Nathan’s violent mood swings and the dark secret Sophie holds close seem likely to consume them in this heart wrenching film.

Clockwork Orange

In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society’s crime problem… but not all goes to plan. Stanley Kubrick’s scathing look at a not-so-distant future dominated by high-tech moral decay is an American cult classic.


When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and grizzled fisherman set out to stop it. The two-note score to Jaws is synonymous with suspense and danger, a simple alternation of E and F most can recognize instantly.

Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks stars as Forrest Gump, an unlikely figure in some of history’s most pivotal moments in the 60’s and 70’s. Through the journey of Forrest’s life – from college football star to war hero to ping pong champ and cross-country runner – his childhood friend Jenny is a constant figure in his heart.
