The Number Movie

Sometimes people send me the neatest things. For example, B.G. (Bellingham, WA) sent me a link to a YouTube Video called 100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers. Watch it without any further description.

First, were you able to predict which movie would be used to produce the next number?

Second, someone has too much time on their hands...

Third, maybe we in the mathematics community should work together to extend this video to show the full richness of the number system!

So, do you know any movies that utter the number 0? Whole numbers above 100? Negative integers? Fractions (might be hard to find some consistent way to order them however)? Complex numbers? Pi? e? Phi?
