    One flew over, is way over rated, so is Pulp Fiction. Yes Casablanca should be there for sure.

    Ok I gotta wonder why Pulp Fiction is considered to be so great. I enjoyed the first scene and then the rest was rather meh.

    I look at that list and the only two movies that are truly top ten, in my opinion, are The Godfather and Schindler's List. And maybe The Godfather II. Just a sampling off the top of my head that should be ahead of the rest of the movies on the list:

    Citizen Kane
    Casablanca
    Gone with the Wind
    The Wizard of Oz
    Lawrence of Arabia
    The Searchers
    And probably Singin' in the Rain, even though it's not my favorite.

    TDK. I feel the movie is overrated. The one thing that keeps me watching it these days is Heath Ledger. I mostly just skip the rest [face_frustrated]

    None of them deserve the honor IMO.

    There are a few that I don't think deserve to be there but The Dark Knight deserves it the least, IMO. It was a good movie, just not that good.

    The Dark Knight... It was good, yes, but it didn't move me. (I will say, however, that Ledger's performance was amazing.)

    I think Dark Knight is getting bashed unfairly. Maybe it isn't a top 10 movie, but it is still the best superhero movie yet made, and one of the greatest thrillers in history. And I have no problem calling Ledger's performance as the Joker the best villan in film history.

    Pulp Fiction.

    Okay movie, but not in my top 100.

    I voted, but apparently didn't say what I voted for. :p

    I'm trying to remember and I think I said The Dark Knight. It's a wonderful film, but let it stand the test of time a bit longer before automatically putting it on the Top 10 list. :p
