    Any list that suggests The Sound of Music is better than all but one film directed by Alfred Hitchcock is worthless and deserving of total and complete ridicule, irrespective of how many great films managed to get mentioned.

    I’ve seen 45 films on the list.  Some good some bad few are great.  Of the films I’ve seen the most over-rated film on the list is “Singin’ in the Rain.” 16 is way too high.

    It looks exactly what I would expect of a list compiled by an American publication. I wonder if they have even heard of Kieslowski. That is my quick Americocentrism test. And it looks like this list, much like almost every other American compiled list has failed.

    I sure haven’t. Oh well, it’s hard to know every single director.

    Bravo to EW for recognizing the sheer brilliance of Robert Altman’s “Nashville” (#9).

    As someone who loves movie musicals more than pretty much anything, I completely agree.  Aside from some fantastic performances, I never understood the love for Singin’ in the Rain.  There are so many more well-made movie musicals.

    Psycho
    Dolce Vita (La)
    400 Blows (The)
    Some Like It Hot

    I like AAO prefer All About Eve to Mean Streets. I like both films, but Eve might rank somewhere around 1500 for me, while Mean Streets maybe 2500.

    They picked good films but they are completely in the wrong order.

    As far as “Best Ever” lists I love They Shoot Pictures Don’t They.
