Gogogo ESOTSM!

Casablanca is a bit overrated, isn't it? Sure, it's on my 100 list since I used to fill my walls with Bogart posters when I was a teenager and I have some nostalgic feelings for it somehow. But the second best movie? Wouldn't say so.
I suppose it ends up this way since so many filmspotters have it SOMEWHERE on their top 100 list, even though in many cases further down. But it adds up.

I have seen all of those, and like all of them, but only 5 actually made my list this year.

I think Rear Window may do quite well this year.

You, sir, are outrageous. Lobby is right, it is no better than the 10th best film ever made!

Last year's top 10:
1. The Godfather
2. Casablanca
3. OUATITW (Leone)
4. ESOTSM (Gondry)
5. Singin' in the Rain
6. Pulp Fiction
7. Citizen Kane
8. Seven Samurai
9. Fargo
10. The Big Lebowski


Casablanca is the least overrated of the bunch, and while none of these are in my true top-100 (Casablanca is barely outside that), it is the only one that makes my ballot. Once again the rest of you need to stop liking bad movies and start liking the movies that I like. 8)

Honestly, if you don't at least enjoy Singin' in the Rain, I can't accept you as a fellow human being.

Only the reds are films I dislike. Orange would be dislike as well but nothing fell into that zone.
