Just to give you my perspective when creating my list. I wasn't making my favorite movie list, which I agree is just too hard to narrow down. I thought about overall movie quality, i.e. etertainment value, editing, cinematography, performances, writing, F/X, etc. That is why even though I frequently disagree with the Academy, I listed the awards just to add some credibility to the list. For example: The Princess Bride might make my top ten favorite list, but the F/X (e.g. the R.O.U.S.'s were good enough for the movie, but overall a little weak) kept it out of this list. Similarly, the editing very nearly knocked Braveheart off this list for me. These movies I believe to be almost flawless in that the writing, performances, editing, casting, entertainment, etc. are such that you really couldn't change or fix anything.


BTW - I think an all time wierdest/best movie list will be my next post. Need some time to ponder that one though.
