Format: DVD
This is a terrible DVD for the following reasons: The "countdown" for each film usually gives very little overall information and there is no standardization of the information given, such as the main stars for each film, year made, etc.

The programming for playing the DVD is very user unfriendly...for example, when playing the trailers, one must select each trailer individually, without the option of selecting "Play All". After each trailer is played the cursor is reset to the beginning rather than sequencing to the next unplayed trailer.

The frenetic graphics and noisy interlude music are very annoying, distracting and don't fit with the subject matter. Whoever produced this DVD was simply trying to make a splashy show on the screen.

The type face and font are quite illegible and hard to read, especially the screen for selecting the trailers.

Another aggravation: if you don't promptly make an intermediate selection, the DVD defaults to the main selection screen, with its annoying music.

There was very little critics' commentary, unless you count that quoted in the trailers.

All in all an almost worthless, hyped, barely-informative DVD.

Being a non-american myself, I noticed one thing missing from this top 100 - non-american films! Not even one! Not just foreign language films, but even non-american english speaking films (from England, Australia etc) This should be titled "Top 100 AMERICAN films of all time". I at least expected Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" seeing as many critics say this is the best film of all time - but no. Very disppointing, especially as I watched the Australian dvd release of this. I recommend buying the book "1001 films you must see before you die". An execellent book with many non-american films and a wide range of genres and good mix between blockbuster and art-house movies. Also has many more newer films than this top 100 dvd. One plus for this dvd (as someone else mentioned) are the trailers (for mostly older movies 1910's to 1950's) which was a great idea. I think the IMDB top 250 is way more credible than this top 100, and if I were a film critic I'd be embarassed by this list not including non-american films - america is not "the world", as we so often see or are led to believe with american television.

This is a totally bogus DVD. They don't anywhere explain who are the critics that voted for the movies. Any idiot could pick most of these movies. It's basically the AFI list. It's stupid.
