Inspired by Yahoo’s 100 Modern Movie Classics, Pinoy Rebyu has come up with a list of 100 Philippine Modern Movie Classics (films released from 1990 to 2009).

As with any best-of list, ours is highly subjective, and we expect to elicit reactions from you, dear readers. What films did we miss that you think deserve to be included? Conversely, which in the list do you think should in no way be called a modern classic? Please feel free to sound off in the comments section.
