Will you be expanding the list? If so, don't forget "Back to the Future" and the Gamble House by Greene and Greene. I'm sure there's more, but that comes to mind immediately.

@ John; I am going to be adding to the list periodically so if anything else comes to mind do mention. And share the link as well with your readers over at the daily dose.
