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.

Boo! Boo! Boo!!! How can Gone With The Wind not be on this list?

Oh well, I just can't vote for a spaghetti western set in space.

#1 The Godfather (1972) vs.#7 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) - Just not a Godfather fan.

#1 Casablanca (1942) vs.#4 Star Wars (1977) - I agree with others, it's tough to vote against Star Wars because of its long-term impact on movie making.

Picture this:

Reverse the settings and plotlines of The Godfather and Star Wars. You get Han Solo whacked at the Jersey Turnpike toll booth, and Michael Corleone in a Light Saber fight with "The Turk".  Classic!!!

IMHO, Casablanca and Star Wars are the two best. It's too bad that the match-ups came out the way they did.

Not a bad Final Four.  Would have liked to see a Godfather v. Citizen Kane match up but the people have spoken.  I see "the family" making it to the finals easily.  As for the other match up, that's a much tougher one.

#1 The Godfather (1972) vs. #7 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)  No dis but the Godfather is well ahead of Mockingbird. 

#1 Casablanca (1942) vs. #4 Star Wars (1977)  It kills me to vote against SW but I have to be honest with myself and vote for the better picture. 

As always, nice work Section.
