Removing the annotations is just not a good idea for these ancient documents.

No Citizen Kane? Surprising, but I have to agree.
No Casa Blanca? Surprising, and I disagree. Casa Blanca is still top 10.

Is Apocalypse Now a "war movie"? It has more battle scenes, but I think it's less of a war movie than Inglorious Bs.
Yes, revenge is the (one of the) theme(s), but it was still about "behind the lines" fighting in WWII....

In 1917, Jews ...
