Here are my thoughts. 
First you have your usual suspects Citizen Kane (1), The Godfather (2), Casablanca (3), Gone with the Wind (10). But they threw in some interesting choices. 

Bonnie and Clyde at 4 - I have seen Bonnie an Clyde on other lists but never this high.

Nashville at 9 a movie that doesn't usually get talked about and one I have never seen this high on the list.

Bambi at 14. Here is a movie that never gets talked about as the greatest of all time and it is higher then The Wizard of Oz (28) and they list it as the greatest family movie.

The Road Warrior never thought I would see a Mad Max film on a list like this.

Titanic at 52 the movie seems to be getting more love as time goes on.

The Hurt Locker at 74 is the most recent movie on the list.

Dazed and Confused at 80 loved the movie but again never expected it to make a top 100

and no Coen Brothers movies (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men) on the list.
