Again, it feels like Empire do this every 6 months?!

8: Singin’ In The Rain (1952)

7: Apocalypse Now (1979)

6: GoodFellas (1990)

4: The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

3: Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

2: Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

1: The Godfather (1972)

 

Empire Online is the place to go to find out what was said about every movie on the list :)

 

The lack of Tremors on this list makes it null and void as any list that I believe in!

488: Princess Mononoke (1997)

474: Enter The Dragon (1973)

440: Akira (1988)

339: Spirited Away (2001)

275: My Neighbour Totoro (1988)

230: Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)

 

Nice to see these on the list, but Howl's is to high on the list, and Akira and Princess Mononoke deserve to be in front of it.

 

Also, the lack of classic Kung Fu films on this list is inexcusable! :)

2: Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

 

what? Empire was so much better than Raiders

 

22: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)

 

what? i agree that empire is a better film but a new hope had a far bigger impact than many in the top 20 heck even raiders.

The Godfather is a crock of complete sh*t. These lists are so retarded anyway, its all opinion based, who are they to tell me the Godfrather is the best movie ever when I'd class it as the worst?

 

Stupid.

Obviously Airplane needs to be a lot higher. As in 367 places higher.

 

"Surely you can't be serious!"

"I am serious. And don't call me Shirley"

 

:lol

 

After having read the top 10 again, I can say that I've only seen two films in the top ten (Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark). It just seems strange to me, as I have seen quite a few on the list.

You seem to get un-necessarily angry when someone says something you don't like is good. Count to ten, man! Breathe!

 

Just out of interest, if you class The Godfather as the worst film of all time, what do you think is the best?

Pixar didn't do bad with 7 out of 9 of their feature lengths getting in the Top 500.

You are misreading something that isnt even close to anger for just that. I'm not angry whatsoever.

 

As for the best, I couldnt tell you. I can tell you some of my favourites, but they likely change from week to week.

 

These lists are stupid and always will be because you cant unequivically say which is better than which in a factual way like they do.

I have never even heard of some of these movies. But at least Some Like it Hot and Edward Scissorhands made the list.

 

I had better get out from under the rock where I live and get to the theatre more often.

I don't like the Godfather, I don't like the whole genre it's in. So it wouldn't be in my top 10. It is still a deserving film to be there. Just my personal list would not have it. Numbers 2 and 3 would be my 1 and 2 on most days. (Although One of the two was not in my top 10 for popsi.)

Can I ask why you think it's a crock of sh*t?

 

For me it's the greatest piece of modern storytelling in cinematic history.

Because I dont like the genre in general. Gangster films I find to be boring, overly long and try to be too clever.

 

The Godfather (all 3) send me to sleep. They are so drab and dull and they go on and on and on. Load of crap.
