  Chicago Reader Blogs: On Film
But villainx, I think the difference is that Jonathan's lists more readily admit their subjectivity ("favorite films"), whereas th AFI list, or the Schrader list (for a more recent example), or an descriptor like "the best year for film" suggests an air of "academic" inquiry, a (perhaps subconcious) attempt to seem objective.
Lists tend to be very subjective (as to the personality and experience of their creator) and are insightful for their inclusions as well as omissions.
Rosenbaum makes his lists, he is quite aware of their subjectivity and how much he has yet to see (when talking about the great Japanese directors, he confesses that he has yet to experience a Naruse film).

 Genre and the Video Game
The idea of categorization by genre, and the notion that there are certain conventions present in each genre, has been used in the study of literature and film and has proven to be a useful way of looking at both.
The idea of genre has not been without difficulties, such as the defining of what exactly constitutes a genre, overlaps between genres, and the fact that genres are always in flux as long as new works are being produced.
Several genres could easily be subdivided into subgenres, which are themselves even more fluid and ever-changing than genres, and their inclusion would more than double the present length of the list.

 Cinematic genre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A "genre" generally refers to films that share similarities in the narrative elements from which they are constructed.
Many historians debate whether film noir truly is a genre rather than a style of film-making often emulated in the period's heyday.
John Truby, Hollywood story consultant states that "...you have to know how to transcend the forms [genres] so you can give the audience a sense of originality and surprise."[1] Some screenwriters use genre as a means of determining what kind of plot or content to put into a screenplay.

 Women Film Journalists Pick Their Own Top 100 List - Cinematical
But consider that many of the films of the AFI's list were not initially critical or box office successes, and that the "art" was only appreciated later, sometimes decades after their releases.
In fifty, maybe just twenty years, the AFI list might be considered a relic-- from the bygone days of the American domination of film created out of a long-dead all-male club-- certainly worthy of study in from academic perspective, but lacking contemporary relevance.

Along with the prose fiction, playscripts, and poems that represent the three primary genres of writing that have tended to be identified with "literature" over the past two centuries, I've included letters, diaries, and personal essays, both by people with an established literary reputation and by those who didn't necessarily intend their writing for publication.
At this point, I've decided to restrict the list to authors who were born in what was considered Polish national or cultural territory at the time of their birth AND who--except for pre-17th century authors writing in Latin--wrote at least some of their works in the Polish language.
