"Fight Club" nominated as one of the AFI's Top Movies
I am currently watching the "American Film Institute (AFI) 100 Years - 100 Movies" on CBS tonight (June 20). It is the AFI ranking of the top 100 films of all time - including new films from 1996 to 2006 - as determined by movie industry leaders.
While watching this TV special - I went to this website:
.. and downloaded the nomination list of the top 400 films. From this list the top 100 films will be selected (you can not download the top 100 film list yet - not until the show is over later tonight).
Anyway - "Fight Club" was one of the new films from 1996 - 2006 to be included in the nomination list. Congratulations Chuck P. and David Fincher! And - of course - B. Pitt, E. Norton, and H. B. Carter.
It would be freakin' awesome if "Fight Club" made the AFI top 100 list!
I missed the first hour of the show, so perhaps I missed "Fight Club" if it was ranked from 100 to 75. Will know more in 1.5 hours (whent he show ends).
See the attached screen shot of the nomination (the #122 of 400 was the number in alphabetical order).
