1500 Essential Movies That You Must Watch

Yet another 'must watch' list, this has been culled from a variety of sources listing essential movies, including lists by Empire and Total Film. I have purposely not used 1001 Movies (although some will obviously be in that book). There are some interesting choices on here, but none-the-less, these are the films that somebody somewhere believes you need to see.
