So define ‘essential’

The films Schindler’s List, Titanic and Ed Wood share one vital characteristic on the Amazon.com list of “Essential Movies of the 1990s”.

They’re not on it.

Neither is Forrest Gump or Jurassic Park.

Maybe more importantly, the list doesn’t rank the movies it’s left with. That puts Toy Story at the very top and Goodfellas, which really is an essential movie in many ways, at the very bottom.
