How are 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Graduate listed, do the writers even know what they are about? For technical aspects how could they skip Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, and The Sound of Music? Each of these was ground breaking technologically with a solid story. What about films dealing with serious social issues; Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and To Sir With Love? To make a list of the Greatest Movies of All Time you have to look at more than what the critics thought about it. Has this film become part of our cultural fabric, did it change the way movies were made or thought about, or did it expose some part of society for the inconsistencies we all ignore. That will make this list a statement to the power of film.
Makes me a bit sad to see Christopher Nolan mentioned but no mention of Memento.
"Raging Bull" would have to be there, although "Taxi Driver" is also wonderful but dark and sociopathic. I would rank all of Tarantino's films above the Lucas/Spielberg output (used to love them, they don't hold up to repeated viewings anymore), except for "Schindler's List." Definitely Godfathers one and two; they're as rich as novels. Definitely "The Wizard of Oz." Possibly "It's a Wonderful Life." The first "Alien" is at the top of both my horror and science-fiction lists, with "Blade Runner" almost at the top. "All the President's Men." And weirdly enough, "The Sopranos" and the unfinished HBO show "Deadwood" would make my list of the finest filmed entertainment I've ever seen.
I think on the waterfront, pulp fiction, the orinal metropolis, modern times, the maltese falcon, even Buster's Sherlock Jr. I dont think Back to the future should be on the list or even star wars and i Love star wars. Im glad Bicycle theives made it is definately in my top 10.
I would replace Star Wars: Episode V-The Empire Strikes Back and Back to the Future with ALL ABOUT EVE and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE.
I think the original version of 12 Angry Men should at the very least get an honorable mention :)

I love Star Wars and Back to the Future but I can come up with at least 5 Westerns that are better movies without taking a breath, Red River,The Magnificent Seven, High Noon, Unforgiven and The Searchers. JUST SAYING!!
All amazing films, and worthy of this list, Richard, for sure.
While I agree the movies picked are all amazing, I feel there is a sad lack of global diversity in the picks. Fellini's 8 1/2, and Bicycle Thief are the only foreign films chosen, among thousands of absolutely influential films. Where is the love for Kurosawa, Lang, or even Bergman? And for that matter, 7 of the 10 films were made after 1965. What about Gone with the Wind, or Any of the amazing films of Billy Wilder, such as Sunset Boulevard or Double Indemnity?

The Dark Knight Rises will soon be on this list
No love for Cool Hand Luke???!!! Paul Newman has to be one of the greatest actors of all time, if not the greatest, but that's just this guys opinion!
I so agree!
He's my favorite actor, and so I'd have to go with BUTCH CASSIDY or THE VERDICT ... two of his best.
Also excellent films, to go along with The Hustler and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!
I like this Post . visit my site ***anupom.com
The Shawshank Redemption, Shindler's List, Titanic...hmm, it's so hard to filter the best ones! I was thinking about the best ones, typed the titles, deleted and typed again, it really resembled some typing speed test [BLOCKED WEBSITE] :)
so glad to see Back to the future on here, i feel like it is so under appreciated -- sorry back to the future was way better than toy story -- don't know why you have to single Back to the future!
untouchables and rocky
I also loved Shenandoah with James Stewart.
I think Christopher Nolans movies are highly underrated sometimes. He builds his story and characters really well with a constant build in tension, then at the end there's always a phrase or image he leaves off with that forces you to rethink everything you saw over and over again in your head. Inception, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight make it onto my top ten list mostly because its rare that a movie blows me away to the point I have a hard time driving afterwards. But that's just me.
(V for Vendetta, Fight Club, 28 Days Later, Unbreakable, Pulp Fiction, Predator, and Terminator 2 are also on my top ten.)
I agree...Christopher Nolan should be on the list...
To Kill a Mockingbird is my all-time favorite. And, I think Halloween is a classic too ... but that's just me! :)
Two great choices, Poohgirl.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
