Honestly, saying "your list is cliche" has become cliche.
Sure, The Godfather is ALWAYS mentioned, but 2001 doesn't get all that much credit. It inspired ALL of Cameron's movies, and he acknowledges it, so he HAD to put that on.
Dr. Strangelove is referenced a lot, but it's not cliche. If anything, the amount of people who like the classics versus those who are irreverent to the classics makes it so that it CAN'T be cliche to like the films that everyone else likes, because there's still TONS AND TONS of people that don't like them.
The only choice I disapprove of is Wizard of Oz. He could have put any movie, but he put that one. I wish he would have put another serious film like Barry Lyndon, which topped Scorsese's list of favorite films.
