    So it is time to reveal the forums top 20 films of all time!! There were loads of great films on the lists but there could be only one winner, the top three had quite a few more votes than any of the others and the number 1 was again quite comfortably the winner. for each entry I have added a quote from a review and put a photo, the photos might not work as I am pretty useless at this but I will edit it if they do not work.



    So with out further ado...

    Number 20

    The Matrix
    1999
    "The Matrix slams you back in your chair, pops open your eyes and leaves your jaw hanging slack in amazement."

    .

    Number 15

    Toy Story

    .
    .
    .

    Number 14

    Godfather

    .


    Number 13

    The Shawshank Redemption
    1994
    "A thumpingly good ode to friendship, hope, wit, wiles and wisdom, brimming with crackling characters and topped with the most twisteroo of twists since "The Crying Game."

    .
    .

    Number 12

    Blade Runner

    Number 11

    Aliens

    .
    .
    .


    Number 10

    The Terminator
    1984

    Number 9

    Die Hard
    1988

    .
    .

    Number 8

    Goodfellas

    .
    .
    .
    .


    Number 5
    Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the lost ark
    1981

    "One of the most deliriously funny, ingenious and stylish American adventure movies ever made."



    .
    .
    .
    .
    .


    Number 4
    Dark City
    1998

    "A great visionary achievement, a film so original and exciting, it stirred my imagination like "Metropolis" and "2001: A Space Odyssey."



    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Time for the big three!


    Number 3
    Back to the future
    1985

    "This brilliant contraption of a film could become the hit of the summer. It's a cinematic Rube Goldberg machine whose parts connect in audacious, witty ways"




    .
    .
    .
    .
    .


    Number 2
    Alien
    1979

    "Scott’s masterful use of shadows, framing and sound has never been more terrifying. No matter how many times you’ve seen this, you’ll still be hiding behind your fingers at every conceivable juncture"



    .
    .
    .
    .
    .

    And your number 1 of all time is....

    Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
    1980

    "It balances bloodshed with charm, spectacle with childlike glee. It's a near flawless movie of its kind."






    So a few surprises in there for me, especially Dark City as I remember thinking it was good but not great. Will have to order that now to re watch it.
    What do you think?

    So where was Grosse Pointe Blank?

    Clearly this poll has no validity.
    What do you mean I didn't vote? What's that got to do with anything?

    Where did those quotes come from? You can call Blade Runner transcendental after 2001, for example.

    I see it answered the alien vs aliens debate.

    Thanks, i wouldn't have bothered if I knew it was going to take as long as it did.

    Oldboy the only title make post 2000, late 70s early 80s by far the most popular. The best films or because the voters, like me, grew up on them?

    @Kichijoten
    If you watch Dark City again, watch the directors cut - it takes the shitty exposition delivering voice over off that the studio insisted on putting there for idiots.

    @MetalDog thanks, i will look on amazon as I'm sure it will be dirt cheap on zoverstocks. I probably haven't seen it since the year of release.

    Unbelievably over-rated. If it wasn't Korean, no-one would give a fuck about it.

    I enjoyed it, but only for the first and the final act. The middle part was a bit rubbish to be fair, although the fight scene in the hallway with the hammer done in a single take did get a laugh out of me.

    Good to see a lot of love for Big Trouble In Little China. Here's hoping they never do a sequel.
  • Deleted user 16 December 2014 10:02:42
    There is one film I definitely haven't seen on that list (Oldboy) and two a bit hazy on (Platoon and Die Hard).

    I don't really have any inclination to change that.

    Can't disagree with most of the list, Jaws would be my number 1 though.

    i really enjoyed it but it certainly isn't the best movie made since 2000.

    Old boy was great, but not top 20 movies great. It being korean has little to do with it, though a lot of quality stuff has come out of that country in the last decade or so.
  • Deleted user 16 December 2014 14:26:56
    Can't argue with any of the films on that list  althourgh the order may be of debate the actual films are all greats.

    And proud to say I have seen everyone on that list,  now which to rewatch first :)  thanks for putting all the time and effort to do this.
  • Deleted user 16 December 2014 14:36:13
    how come fight club didn't make it in? There were a good few votes for that.
