AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies: 10th Anniversary Edition (2007 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
Right off the bat you've got Toy Story, the Lord of the Rings (2001) and The Sixth Sense as if they were among the 100 greatest films in history? 23 films that made the list last time didn't make this one such as Patton, All Quiet On the Western Front, Amadeus, Dr. Zhivago, Giant, and Dances With Wolves. Then there are just classic films that didn't make either such as Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, The Lost Weekend, Rain Man, etc.
They have got Pulp Fiction at #94, The French Connection at #93, Goodfellas at #92, and Platoon at #86. All these films should be in the top 50. Probably the biggest injustice is One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest at #33 when it should be in the top 5. Then you've got The Godfather Part II at #32? At least a top 10 film. There were numerous films that were way too low for my taste such as The Deer Hunter, A Clockwork Orange, Taxi Driver, and Apocalypse Now.
Then you've got your bloated big money makers that have no business being on this list. Titanic the perfect example at #83, Lord of the Rings at #50, and Forrest Gump at #76.
I personally would put The Godfather at #1 but I'm okay with Citizen Kane which claimed the top spot once again.
Overall, a decent list with some problems. The show itself was pretty well done and it was nice to see some older movies included. Although it probably would have been better as a two night 6 hour event rather than one night because every movie profile was so short, some were only about 20 seconds. Then they spent 10 minutes talking about Citizen Kane.
One thumbs up I will give to this list is the fact that Fargo didn't make an appearance.
