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.

What is the best movie ever made? Final Four

Apparently I haven't been paying attention.  I missed two rounds of voting.  Well, I've returned to once again submit the "Mom and Cat" vote.

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

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

The greatest benefit of voting as a team:  if our vote ever annoys anyone, each of us can blame the other.

How about this for a tagline:

Should 'Star Wars' bullseye Bogie like a womp rat, or will that be a decision you regret - Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life?

You're entirely correct, HNC, Star Wars is not one of the greatest movies of all time in terms of acting or even story, really, but it was absolutely ground-breaking for special effects.  I could have flipped a coin between the two, but I ended up voting for Star Wars simply because if I were going to pop in a movie right now, SW is the one that would end up in the DVD player.  It doesn't matter - neither is going to get my vote over The Godfather next round anyway.  :)

Nice to see that two of my favorite movies made the Final Four.

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

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

I thought Star Wars was highly entertaining with great special effects but one of the greatest movies of all time?  Was it the acting that got it into the Final Four?  Sure, that must be it.  No offense to Star Wars fans but it wasn't even the best in the series.

I felt bad voting against Gregory Peck, but you can't go against the family.  It's easy to like Atticus, but it's a special mobster that makes you root for him.  Princess Leia leaves Bogie on the tarmac once again.
