We Like Media's 100 Favorite Movies
by Jason B. Bell, Tommy Burton, Liza Marshall, Noby Nobriga, Sean Sloan, and Rusty W. Spell

Our assignment was simple: to list our 100 favorite movies. Not what we considered the "best" movies, and certainly not what the universe at large considered the most respectable. We're not the AFI and we're not VH-1. We tried to be as honest as possible, to list those movies we most love, whether they were completely arty or completely candy--as long as we were crazy about them.

There were six of us, and we ranked 100 movies apiece. We mathemetized these lists together, and the following masterlist is what the machine spit back out at us. If you're interested in seeing who's to blame, you may click on our names. If you're interested in seeing how everything ranked and the numeric scores each movie received, you may click on the masterlist.

Jason, Tommy, Liza, Noby, Sean, Rusty, Masterlist.
