What is the best movie ever made? Final Four

Posted on: December 5, 2008 7:54 am
 

Here we are at the final four, minus one of the 1 seeds. Citizen Kane was eliminated, losing out to the Mockingbird by 2 votes.

This of course sets up an easy tagline for one of the matchups.

Does the Godfather have what it takes To Kill a Mockingbird, or will he get some poop in the eye?

The other one isn't so easy. But both movies have bar scenes in them, although I don't recall anyones arm getting lopped off in Casablanca. If someone can come up with a good tagline, feel free to post it.

#1 The Godfather (1972) vs.#7 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

#1 Casablanca (1942) vs.#4 Star Wars (1977)

Voting will stay open until next Friday.

Looks like the voting has tapered off. I think I gave today as the deadline so, the polls are now closed.

It looks like the Godfather and Casablanca get to go to the finals. I was hoping Star Wars could pull it off, but it had a great run.

I think you just canceled yourself out, Ace.

Still, good arguments on behalf of all four.

Nothing ever changes. Centuries later they are still rounding up

"the usual suspects"

Now that movie was better than the Godfather.

To Kill a Mockingbird is truly a dramatic tour deforce.  No need for action/ violence/ horse heads, etc. Just great story, acting and message.

The special effects in Star Wars changed the future of the industry. From the good (Ghostbusters, 300, Hell, even Sin City) To the bad (Space Balls, Starship Troopers, Star Wars 4,5 and 6) were all a result of the CGI and Green Screen tech from Star Wars.

Still Mocking Bird #1

I went with The Godfather as I too thought To Kill A Mockingbird was better reading then the movie.

Hard to go against Casablanca but I like Star Wars better so it got my vote.

Winding down Section. Good job...bluejay
