AFI’s Top 100

While looking through this list, I wasn’t at all surprised to see that I’ve already seen (as an adult) a little less than half of them.  I am slightly horrified by some of the great ones I’ve never seen. I have to admit I’m also truly surprised by some of the movies that made this list. There are A LOT of mafia movies on this list.  Are mafia movies really that good?
