1SOs 7th Group of All Time Favorites
« on: March 21, 2011, 12:32:23 AM »
These 10 came up quick. It's actually 11, but I decided to not include Casablanca and hope for a tighter race.


With 36 votes, Paths of Glory is winning the 1st Poll, and just 1 vote ahead of The 400 Blows and The Passion of Joan of Arc.

31 votes, M still has the lead in the 2nd poll.

32 votes, Amadeus leads Poll #3, just a couple of votes ahead of Double Indemnity.

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

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

With 26 votes, the 6th Poll is too close to call. Ran has a 1 vote lead.

What madness is this! Froham, 1SO and I are all in agreement.

Wings of Desire. There can be no other.

My true ranking below, but I voted Jesus Christ Superstar because the musical itself (not the film version) is better than everything else on the list.

The Princess Bride
LA Confidential
Ikiru

Strangers on a Train
Jesus Christ Superstar
A Few Good Men

The Wall

I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Obviously we're cooler than 1SO. Wings of Desire is an extraordinary film. LA Confidential is good, but it steals its plot twist from Minority Report :P
