Weekend Chatter: What are the 10 Greatest Movies of All Time?

 

 
Movie fans love lists. 
 
We spend far too much time ranking various aspects of our all-time favorite storytelling medium. Want to know the Top 10 Airplane! Quotes? The Top 10 Alfred Hitchock cameos? Or the Top 10 guesses as to what is in the Pulp Fiction briefcase? Those lists exist online. 
 
So does this one. In response to Sight & Sound magazine’s decennial Top 10 List – a prestigious ranking of the greatest films ever made – Film School Rejects polled the Internet’s top critics to ask them what they considered to be The 10 Greatest Movies of All Time. The criteria was kept vague so that those who participated could go in any direction with their list – Favorite, Most Influential, Inspirational … if the critic thought a movie belonged on the list, they were free to include it. 
 
Which 10 films did the Internet’s top critics come up with?
 
1. Citizen Kane
2. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
3. The Godfather
4. Raiders of the Lost Ark
5. Casablanca
6. 8 1/2
7. Back to the Future
8. 2001: A Space Odyssey
9. Bicycle Thieves
10. Vertigo
 
And these are the films that just missed the cut:
Lawrence of Arabia 
Aliens
Goodfellas
Star Wars: Episode IV -  A New Hope
The General
Fight Club
Rear Window
North By Northwest
Network
The Graduate
The Passion of Joan of Arc
Jaws
 
Asking people to make a list of 10 beloved films is subjective. My Top 10 is going to look very different from your Top 10 … and with good reason. We both love different things. 
 
But in looking over the films chosen by the Internet film critics polled, which films did they miss? And why? 
 
I, for one, think there is a disturbing lack of animation on the list, and think the original Toy Story (or even its immediate sequel) deserves inclusion before something like Fight Club or Back to the Future (and I adore them both!) 
 
So, as you head out to the theaters this weekend, chime in and let us know which movies you would have added to the list of the 10 Greatest Movies of All Time. It isn’t an easy task. But it is a fun task!
