Greatest (blank) movie...

965 Views 35 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  chqm8
I'm watching "The Longest Day," the greatest war movie of all time. I don't think anyone would argue against calling "The Godfather" the greatest gangster movie of all time. Some might call it the best movie period. But can you pick a "greatest movie" for other genres?<br><br>
The greatest western of all time? And the greatest romantic comedy of all time? Comedy? Action movie? Scary movie? Other genre?<br><br>
Are there generally accepted "best" in these genres?

Greatest gangster movie: Godfather II (yeah thats right I said II)<br><br>
Greatest horror movie: The Exorcist.<br><br>
Greatest comedy: hmmm.... not sure. My personal fave is There's Something About Mary.<br><br>
Greatest thriller movie: Jaws.<br><br>
Best action flick: I like the Matrix and I love Point Break. and Die Hard. so....Ill give it to Point Break.<br><br>
Greatest prison break: Can't decide: The Shawshank Redemption or Coolhand Luke.<br><br>
Greatest Sci-fi: hmmm....Aliens is great. Star Wars maybe.<br><br>
Best 'buddy' movie: I liked Lethal Weapon.<br><br>
Best western (not the motel chain): so many to choose from. I'm partial to John Wayne of course so I'll go with: El Dorado. (or Rio Bravo. Like Chili Palmer said in Get Shorty, 'they're the same movie basically except dean martin plays the drunk sherrif in el dorado while robert mitchum plays the drunk sherriff in Rio Bravo.') Of course Clint has some great westerns also.<br><br>
Best animation: I love Finding Nemo.<br><br><br><br>
Of course these are all just personal opinions.<br><br>
That's all I've got.<br><br>
Best bicycling movie: Breaking Away.<br>
Best football movie: Remember the Titans.<br>
Best submarine movie: I'll take 'Crimson Tide' over 'The Hunt For Red October'. It's close though.<br>
Best war movie: hmmm....I love the 1st half of Full Metal Jacket, 2nd half was kind of weak though.<br>
I'm so bored right now.

Geena Davis kicks azz in The Long Kiss Goodnight.<br><br>
The Usual Suspects is such a great movie!
I like a lot of movies made in the last 10 yrs. My list was just off the top of my head.<br><br>
And I agree that it's kind of silly to name any movie THE BEST ever in any genre. It's all pretty much subjective.
Some of my favorite movies from the last 10 years or so:<br><br>
LA Confidential<br>
Saving Private Ryan.<br>
Forrest Gump<br>
The Departed.<br>
Blood Diamond<br>
Fight Club<br>
Sin City<br>
Pulp Fiction<br>
The 6th Sense<br>
The Last Samurai<br>
American Psycho<br>
