3. The Godfather: Part II (1974)
4. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. (1966)
5. Pulp Fiction (1994)
6. Schindler's List (1993)
7. 12 Angry Men (1957)
8. The Dark Knight (2008)
9. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
10. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
11. Casablanca (1942)
12. Star Wars (1977)
13. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
14. Seven Samurai (1954)
15. Goodfellas (1990)
16. Rear Window (1954)
17. City of God (2002)

Just so you know. The Empire Strikes Back is widely regarded as being better than A New Hope & Return of the Jedi. And to have The Phantom Menace on your list is an abomination! That movie shouldn't even be in the top 500. The rest of your list is ok at best with the exception of 101 Dalmatians.

I think you got a pretty good taste in movies except 1. Star Wars Episode I does not deserve a placing and I can't believe 101 Dalmatians, though a good film, got a placing while much better animated films like Beauty and the Beast or The Lion King got snubbed.

It wouldn't be my list but you do have 8 on your list that I would add in mine as well.

Not bad, but I think I would eliminate Star Wars Episode 1 from your list, and maybe even 101 Dalmations. Then I'd add the original King Kong and It's A Wonderful Life to the list.

Are you serious? I'm a classic film junkie and well, since you really want opinions, I'll make and effort and I'll try to be gentle. I won't rip every bit, I mean everyone is entitled to their own view, but I'll just say where I think you have glaring over estimations.

The Ten Commandments, sure, a great film, but no where near that good in my view. Star Wars a little high to I think, and E.T.? Come on, The Color Purple is Spielberg's best film by miles in my view. Titanic? Yea, I especially like the part where Billy Zane desides to chase after and shoot at Leo while running around a sinking ship( How bloody stupid was that part?.) A good film sure, but they went a little overboard on that part for one. It wouldn't make my top 50 ever. Jurassic Park? I find that hard to fathom either and I'll end this by saying, where are the Kubrick films? And why the hell would Phantom Menace even make your top 200?

The IMDB list below is not as bad, but still quite pathetic. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly 4th for instance. Huh? Unforgiven is a better film without doubt! And The Dark Knight being on there just kind of crushes the whole thing.
