1SOs 6th Group of All Time Favorites
« on: March 14, 2011, 10:39:15 PM »
I think this is my best group of 10 to date, with a few that I know are personal favorites of some of you. I have no idea which film will come out on top, though I expect my vote for Do the Right Thing to be one of the few for that film.


Paths of Glory is winning the 1st Poll, and just 1 vote ahead of The 400 Blows and The Passion of Joan of Arc.

M still has the lead in the 2nd poll.

Amadeus leads Poll #3, just a couple of votes ahead of Duck Soup and Double Indemnity.

Seven Samurai is running away with Poll #4, the only time my vote is with the majority.

As I figured Once Upon a Time in the West is dominating Poll #5.

Easy choice here, only one of these is clearly in my top-100.

Back to the Future. Obvi.

I doubt it will take the lead here, but interestingly I approve of all the leaders in the other polls.

Total no-brainer for me.  SFAM is one of three films I rated 100 on Criticker.

I love how the first 3 responders all said it was an easy choice as they picked 3 different films. (Bondo, I'm assuming Ran.)

It was an easy choice for me as well, although I still need to see a few.

Ran
Do the Right Thing
On the Waterfront
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre


The Godfather Part II

Fight Club - absolutely loved the first half, hated the second half.

Forrest Gump - new color for rating... brown, like the big stinking turd this film is.
