Over the years, the two critics have had many disagreements, most sensationally disputing over the career of the departed Ingmar Bergman. (See Rosenbaum's unkind treatment here and here, as well as Ebert's response here.) Yet they have always maintained the respect of the other, and never let anything obscure their vigilant passion for the cinematic arts.
Now I present to you the magnificent films which have garnered deserved recognition from both parties. Indeed this is a compendium of films which have made it onto both critics' lofty lists.
Organized by year of release (earliest to most recent, and subsequently in alphabetical order).
If you can, please read the essays accompanying each film.

In ascending order, from 50 to 1.
All credit goes to Rotten Tomatoes; rationales and descriptions are included at the link.
However this list is focused specifically on the films he watched over a year's time, to the exclusion of all else, and presented in the order he watched them. If you are interested in some of the other art forms Soderbergh consumed during that time period, please read the following .pdf file: http://media40.wnyc.net/media/resources/2011/Apr/06/Soderberghs_list.pdf Also be sure to check out the original article here.
Of course there are also countless other links which give detail and opinion about Soderbergh's "cultural diet", but I will leave it up to you to investigate further.
All in all, I had to do some slight guesswork and an omission here and there (for instance, I could not find "The Perils of Priscilla" on IMDb), but in the end I rather like this quirky list. It's an interesting experiment.
The duplicate list at the following link, although slim in content, nevertheless reveals a little more information about the making of the list: http://www.worstpreviews.com/headline.php?id=19557 For instance, the list was intended promote Marty's thriller, Shutter Island.
