Ultimate Films - counting continues

We reach (finally) the halfway point. I know you have all long since lost favour with this effort, but I like it because it enables me to think about the gaps in my knowledge: or at least those I will admit to!

This particular list seems all-or-nothing: with some (for me) shameful admissions...

57 Men In Black 1997 - Saw it in Manchester. Quite fun!
55 Crocodile Dundee 1987 - When I think what I haven't seen and then I realise I have seen this: urgh... I suck as a film viewer.
52 Bridget Jones's Diary 2001 - Went to the cinema. Laughed a lot. Never read the book. Avoided film 2. Never dieted.
51 Superman The Movie 1979 - Back in its day, it was quite amazing...
50 Mrs Miniver 1942 - Watched and cried on many occasions!

59 One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest 1976 - What an admission! I have seen selections from it, but never the whole thing. Haven't even read the book.
58 For Whom The Bell Tolls 1944 - I could claim "unsure" but it would be more accurate to say "nah".
56 Finding Nemo 2003 - The most popular recent animation work and I haven't seen it. I need a slap.
54 A Clockwork Orange 1972 - Again, extracts but not the whole thing...
53 Monsters, Inc. 2002 - Oh the shame! Extracts on lots of occasions, but not the whole thing. Never mind Chick Flicks, what about animation!?
