    These lists are pretty funny. Substance? Acting skills?Stories? Pop culture needs a blood transfusion. Oh and where are the adults ?

    Adults have better things to do than cast votes on on-line sites so they can create stupid lists.

    Haha @mac not saying your old but godfather was made in 1974 man, sorry to burst your bubble. And yeah but nowadays i am just happy that twilight isnt number one and godfather is ont the list. My generation 18 yrs old* is very sad in our taste for movies. Another thing a cant get over how extremely loud and incredibly close was nominated for best picture, al brooks was not nommed for best sup actor, like the academy does not pick the greatest movies of the year anymore, they pick the most socially acceptable. Like nowadays joe pesci would not have won for goodfellas because of the cursing and violence. Fuck the academy. They are too worried about their viewers and making money, not about appreciating and recognizing the best films and performances of the year.

    I guess, now that I reread the fine print, the Godfather thing makes sense. Now we have a whole new problem. The Godfather is the only movie that wasn't made in the last 10 years to make the list?

  • Mitch | January 27, 2012 2:25 PM

    And pulp fiction. But yes, huge problem.

  • Mac | January 27, 2012 2:17 PMReply

    Wow! Maybe I'm not as old as I thought! The Godfather was made within the last ten years?

    And Twilight on the list? There are a number of people that should be ashamed for many different reasons. Seriously.

    Oh yeah! Didn't catch Pulp Fiction. I guess I AM getting old.

    I love that The Godfather just barley came in at no. 10....... after Twilight . People are so stupid.
