Schindler's List is possibly worthy. GoodFellas definitely not. I mean, I love it to death, but it's no where near #1 of all time material. It's not even close to being Scorsese's best film.

Are you serious??? It's far better than Casion, Gang's of NY, even Raging Bull.

Well, it may be better than "Casion" or "Gang's of NY", but it's not a better film than Raging Bull.

And the three of them still can't touch Taxi Driver, what I consider Scrosese's finest work, far and away.

From the movies I've seen I'd probably put either Gladiator or Saving Private Ryan at the top


I'll have to work out my top 100

I think Gladiator is just slightly overrated (Gah, I do hate that word though), but still far from the worst film to win Best Picture.

Saving Private Ryan is a modern classic though, and possibly in the top 3 war films of all time.

I don't agree with some of your placements, but that's a great list man

I really hope Memento, Saving Private Ryan, Fight Club, The Matrix, Children of Men, and Sin City place. Any one of those would be fantastic.

Doubt we'll see Sin City on the new AFI list. The other 5 are likely though. Memento might not. Matrix either. Children of Men might get shafted for being so new, even though that's sort of the point. I don't think Fight Club deserves to make it, but it very well might.

Saving Private Ryan should definitely be on there somewhere though.

Fuck that, we should make an Interference Top 100 movies. Everyone submits a movie and we vote on whether or not it should enter the Top 100. If we do it in the style of namckuR's Beatles poll, it'll last forever! And be fun!

What do you say guys?

I think that's a great idea.

Your method would be waaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too tedious though...and doesn't really make sense.

So try again.

I like not making sense.

Then we'll all submit Top movies, look at the consensus picks (if 50 posters have Schindler's List and 1 poster has Troll 2, Schindler's will make the Consensus Top 100)

you know, like that.
