I'm not surprised by the big ones added to the list this year, but there are so many movies I've never heard of.  I bet you are in the same boat!

Here's the list of films selected to the 2012 National Film Registry:

  • Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
  • The Augustas (1930s-1950s)
  • Born Yesterday (1950)
  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
  • A Christmas Story (1983)
  • The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Title Fight (1897)
  • Dirty Harry (1971)

  • Hours for Jerome: Parts 1 and 2 (1980-82)
  • The Kidnappers Foil (1930s-1950s)
  • Kodachrome Color Motion Picture Tests (1922)
  • A League of Their Own (1992)
  • The Matrix (1999)

  • The Middleton Family at the New York World’s Fair (1939)

  • Two-Lane Blacktop (1971)
  • Uncle Tom's Cabin (1914)
  • The Wishing Ring; An Idyll of Old England (1914)
  • I agree Matrix should be on the list and The Christmas Story should be too. I'm ok with 'Dirty Harry' too. Not so sure about 'League of Their Own'.
