Best movie of all time ?

I did a search on this topic, but didn't come up with anything, so I thought I'd ask, and see what everyone thinks is the greatest movie to hit the big screen, ever? Which one do you watch again and again, and never get tired of seeing?

Classic? maybe an action flick? horror? drama?


One of my favorites would have to be the Terminator series. I've always liked those. The Green Mile, with Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan , was awesome as well. These may not be considered the greatest of all time, but they are few of my favorites I could watch anytime.

Green Mile is a great movie. I have yet to see a movie with TOm Hanks that I did not like.


Hmmm for me...my all time fave would have to be..... Dazed & Confuzed! Yep that's right. Love watching about a bunch of high school kids on their last of school partying it up. Now why couldn't I have been a a child of the 70's instead of BORN in the 70's?

the Big Lebowski.

I hated it the first time I saw it. Now I've seen it probably 50 times and still catch something new everytime I watch it. Funniest movie ever.

If you adjust it to today's dollars, it's still Gone With the Wind, with Star Wars in second. . I think. I've never seen GWTW, though, and hopefully I never will. lol

With the adjustment being done, Titantic passed it last year. Saw that on ET Tonight.

Money and sales really don't tell the story. For example, anyone out there remember the VEGA ???

I don't think anyone ever said they were the best movies.

Internet Movie Data Base has the Godfather rated number one by the users, with over 100,000 votes.

A lot of hardcore movie buffs will say Kirosawa's "Seven Samurai" was hands down the best movie ever.

Still, my favorite to watch over and over is Big Lebowski. "This is not Viet Nam, Smokey, there are rules involved."

Titanic?
Give me Dr. No, the first and best 007 movie. It has the real James Bond (Sean Connery) and Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress). Enough said.
