It is finally time! For four years now I have wanted to make the Top 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… I waited, I watched, and I plotted. I finally feel like it is time to finally make the definitive list.
Please keep in mind, this list is meant to be more than just a movies quality. I can understand that a lot of the older movies are known for being classics and masterpieces… BUT other movies have impacted the culture of society more and, as such, they will be ranked higher then just for the fact that a movie has been traditionally seen as a classic. Also keep in mind that this list will be a little more skewed towards newer movies. NOW, that doesn’t mean the old movies are still going to be present. As a matter of fact, number one and several of the top ones are still going to be the same. But as time has gone on, movies like Contempt have been overpassed by the cultural power of something like The Rocky Horror Picture Show. So just bare in mind the criteria of the list. The films were each judged by the following:
A film’s quality
The Cultural Impact of the Film
The Mechanics of a Film
A Certain Aspect of the Film that Changed Filmmaking in the Popular Culture
All genres will be treated fairly. Dramas will not, and should not, be held in higher regard to horror, comedy, and so forth simply due to the fact they are telling a heavier story
2017 movies are not in the running for the list. But 2016 movies will be in the running to make the list.
*Disclaimer… I am one guy with a personal opinion so some of it may permeate to the placement of the films, though I tried to be as objective as possible. Just keep in mind, unlike other lists that has a score of people. This is one dude assessing hundreds of movies.*
With that being said, choosing the Top 100 was no small feat. In fact even with the soon to be mentioned 50 honorable mentions, I left out a great number of movies that killed me to take off the list. Whenever I went through every movie released from 1900 to 2016, I had a shortlist of 651 potential movies that I could make a case for being in the Top 100. So bare this in mind, that I had to remove 500 worthy contenders before I got to the definitive list. Movies like Jerry Maguire, Good Will Hunting, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Rain Man, The Ten Commandments, A League of their Own, Home Alone, Couching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Howl’s Moving Castle, The Secret of NIMH, and Grease are all movies that just BARELY missed the cut… So it isn’t something that was particularly easy to do.

So, considering the fact that I have finally decided to write the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… Which is coming soon… I decided to revisit one of my favorite posts of all time: My Favorite Movies of All Time. Here is the thing, opinions change, ideas change, and ultimately my tastes have changed. Some movies have become more prevelent in my mind. Some… Some have fallen off the board altogether. When I originally created my Top 25 list… I completely snubbed a few of my favorite movies due to good ole fashion forgetfulness. As such, movies like Die Hard and Reservoir Dogs have made and rectified the list. So with that said, please enjoy my Top 25 FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

Oh I hate prequels. Not just certain prequels but just about every prequel in existence I have hated and if I do not hate them then I can at least guarantee you that I do not love them or at best my reaction to them is mixed. While some of them have some redeemable qualities to them, for the most part just about every single one of them are trash. Continue reading “Top 4 Reasons Why All Prequels Suck”
