Great choices!

Today, the Library of Congress announced which films will be added to the 2011 National Film Registry (NFR), and some of their noteworthy picks include Bambi, Forrest Gump, and The Silence of The Lambs.

Other classics making it into the NFR include Billy Wilder's The Lost Weekend, Fritz Lang's The Big Heat, and Ramon Menendez's Stand and Deliver.

Here's what Librarian of Congress James H. Billington had to say about this year's choices:

"These films are selected because of their enduring significance to American culture. Our film heritage must be protected because these cinematic treasures document our history and culture and reflect our hopes and dreams."

We're quite pleased with this year's additions to the NFR, and we'll look forward to seeing which films get chosen next year!

What do U think? Do U approve of the Library of Congress' choices for 2011???
