Yep, not a fan, it may move up one to above Forrest Gump, but that would be it. Chicago is very much in last place though.

This is beautiful:

Bridge on the River Kwai
Casablanca
Lawrence of Arabia
All About Eve
Rebecca

Casablanca
The Godfather
Lawrence of Arabia


1. Casablanca
4. Annie Hall
5. Unforgiven

This is madness:

The Departed
American Beauty

73. How Green Was My Valley

I would rather think that Martin just doesn't like the Irish rather than actually disliking the film.
