    ^Dude93, You might want to fix your list because Doubt is listed twice. Also, I’m amazed by how many of these lists I can agree with. I rarely see other people’s personal top 10 lists that I’ve seen and liked every film on them, but that happened with Halo_Insider, and Spark87. I’m amazed at how many lists have Network on them, because it is one of my favourite films that I rarely find people who have seen it.

    Looking over some of these lists, I still think there is still some confusion here.  Are we supposed to list our favorite films or our top 10 greatest films?  There’s a HUGE difference.  No Disney movie is among the top 10 movies of all time.  There are many derivatory films being listed here, populist favorites that are no doubt enjoyable but would never ever let your list be taken seriously.

    Take a look at lists by a few of our greatest American directors, and note the same master directors come up again and again, though there is some contention over what certain director’s greatest masterpieces are:

    Francis Ford Coppola
    Ashes and Diamonds (Wajda)
    The Best Years of Our Lives (Wyler)
    I Vitteloni (Fellini)
    The Bad Sleep Well (Kurosawa)
    Yojimbo (Kurosawa)
    Singin’ In The Rain (Donen and Kelly)
    The King of Comedy (Scorsese)
    Raging Bull (Scorsese)
    The Apartment (Wilder)
    Sunrise (Murnau)

    Martin Scorsese
    8 1/2 (Fellini)
    2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick)
    Ashes and Diamonds (Wajda)
    Citizen Kane (welles)
    The Leopard (Visconti)
    Paisan (Rossellini)
    The Red Shoes (Powell and Pressburger)
    The River (Renoir)
    Salvatore Giuliano (Rosi)
    The Searchers (Ford)
    Ugetsu Monogatari (Mizoguchi)
    Vertigo (Hitchcock)

    Woody Allen
    Bicycle Thieves (De Sica)
    The Seventh Seal (Bergman)
    Citizen Kane (Welles)
    Amacord (Fellini)
    8 1/2 (Fellini)
    The 400 Blows (Truffaut)
    Rashomon (Kurosawa)
    La Grande Illusion (Renoir)
    The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (Bunuel)
    Paths of Glory (Kubrick)

    Honestly, espeon was the one who started this, and I’m going to assume, based on his/her list, that it was meant more for preference, not a critical ranking. I don’t quite think one would objectively select Moonstruck as one of the 10 “greatest” films of all time, but it’s great to list as a personal favorite.

    Yeah, it’s was weird, since some people were taking this like they were ranking for Sight and Sound.  I wish those people had added a little commentary.  I’m always looking for a film to blow me away and have a real personal impact.

    Been wondering about that distinction myself.

    My Favorites:
    1. Star Wars/Empire Strikes Back
    2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3. Raging Bull
    4. The Godfather
    5. Lord of the Rings
    6. Pulp Fiction
    7. E.T. The Extraterrestrial
    8. Apocalypse Now
    9. Lawrence of Arabia
    10. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly 

    What I think is the best, alphabetical:
    – 2001: A Space Odyssey
    – Apocalypse Now
    – Casablanca
    – Citizen Kane
    – The Godfather
    – Lawrence of Arabia
    – Raging Bull
    – Seven Samurai
    – The Seventh Seal
    – Sunrise 

    I’d also like to note that those that only appear on one list aren’t far behind on the other.
