This is an astonishing compilation of 100 movie clips — all from well-known films — counting down the numbers from 100-1. How many of these films can you name?

    Great clips, but I lost count of the films. They make me want to spend the 4th of July weekend at the movies.

    What’s amazing is that they are all mainstream, highly respected movies! It is amazing how many of my favorites are included.

    99: “Laura”
