LOTR actually did well considering the movies are relatively young, and ROTJ is actually lower than any LOTR episode but SW is beating the crap out of LOTR. I thought the director did a good job, considering the legendary status of the novels, the fact that he did not cast Hollywood A-list actors (actually, make that Hollywood had squat to do with the movies) for lead roles and being a virtually unknown fillmmaker himself. Oh and he did all three simoultaneously. It had a huge disaster potential.

Unfortunately, the weakest of the three got to won the most Oscars.
Agreed on almost all of this. I just figure that if G-dfather is that low, there's no point in even debating it. It will always be my favorite film, few film compare, in my opinion.

I'm surprised Back to the Future was high up, too. I thought The Godfather would be in the Top 10 for sure.

Before Sunset/Sunrise were surprisingly popular, too.

I loved Before Sunrise/Sunset. Not Top 25 for me, but really close.

The 25 is what made it so hard. I think if it were a Top 50 and more people sent in lists, it would be a more definitive list, you know?

Forrest got to be #2 because whoever listed it, listed it extremely high each time. It was a Top 10 almost every time.

Quite frankly, The Empire Strikes Back destroyed everything, which pleased me.

I have a question:

Does one have to have seen 'The Terminator' in order to understand 'Terminator 2', or can one see 'Terminator 2' on its own without any problem?

T2 can stand on it's own, but it'd still be good to watch the first one.

I actually meant to make Before Sunrise my #1 pick but either way, it doesn't matter. I love them both equally. To me, they are the same film. Nine years apart and they are still the same glorious film. I live my life waiting for a third.

Terminator is far superior to the bloated, manipulative sequel. It's deliciously dark and rough around the edges.

I can't share a link, but I've found a place where you can watch flicks without even downloading anything. It's genius, but the selection is so-so.

However, I am finally getting a chance to watch Pulp Fiction. Also, I watched One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest earlier (Jack Nicholson ), so I am catching up a bit.

You've probably already seen it, but I sent you the link anyway.

I'm curious to see what happens with the directors list. Because I think unless you're really into movies, most people people couldn't name more than 5 directors and their films. The filmmakers most likely to show up because of name/face recognition are:

Steven Spielberg
Martin Scorsese
George Lucas
Spike Lee
Peter Jackson
Ron Howard
Clint Eastwood

If you dig a little deeper into cinema, you will probably be more aware of:

David Lynch
Stanley Kubrick
Francis Ford Coppola
Coen Bros.
Oliver Stone


And then you have another level which begins to include foreign film directors and classic Hollywood directors. Even someone famous as Chaplin is known more as an actor than a director, despite the fact that he wrote, directed, and eventually scored all his well-known films.

It's an unfortunate forgone conclusion that Spielberg is going to be on top of that list, but I hope people do some research on their favorite films and find some names beyond the top tier.
