What movies do you feel are worthy of being saved in case our present civilization collapses? Many great civilizations of the past have fallen into ruin, and ours is no less vulnerable. If you could save 100, or 250, or 500 movies in a vault so that someday future generations can watch them once humanity has risen from the ashes, which ones would you pick? You don't have to limit yourself to the all-time classics - movies that are just plain fun are worth saving, too.
