Top 500 Movies of All Time

Click Here: Empire Magazine – The Top 500 Movies of All Time

I had to fix the link on this post (thanks agb), and I decided that it wasn’t a very well written post. So, here’s take 2.

I might have posted this one already. If I did, it’s a good enough list to deserve a second viewing. This is another one of those top-lists that were so popular at the turn of the 21st century. Besides the Rolling Stone magazine’s top albums and songs of all time, I have to say this Empire top 500 movies list is at least worth a look.

To actually watch these movies is a truly ambitious effort. I’m not planning on watching every single one, just as many as I can before I die. Another good guide that is a little more portable is The New York Times Guide To The Best 1000 Movies Ever Made, which I highly recommend as well. The NYT book is more of a narrative instead of a truly comprehensive guide, which makes it read more like a book of historical articles rather than a true list-book. This is a plus for me, but if you want just-the-facts, then either stick to this great Empire Magazine site, or try the Leonard Maltin Movie Guides. If you’re on a thrifty-kick, the 2008 version of this book is down to about $4.00 (used) when I last viewed the item, as opposed to about $11.00 (used) for the 2009 version.

Going back to the Empire Top 500 Movies list, it’s not quite perfect. There are movies that I felt should be much further toward #1, and some movies (*cough*, Ben-Hur, *cough*) that shouldn’t even be ON the list. At all. But that is all part of the fun.

Enjoy the list…and have fun foregoing those Tivo’d episodes of Battlestar Galactica in favor of some great classics from AMC or TCM. It’s a tough call, but the movies are like a healthy dinner for your soul. Make the right choice.

Fifty Worst Songs Ever to Reach #1


See, these sites kind of annoy me. There’s a reason why these songs hit #1. They were really, really good…once. For a sliver of time, these songs were just what a lot of Americans needed. Sure, they don’t deserve to hit #1 today…although I’d still rather listen to old crap than new “hits” in most cases (although T.I. is rather engaging, I must say).

Anyhow, I’ll stand aside while you go Rick-roll yourself.

The Best Films of 2008

I miss Mr. Ebert’s video commentary on At The Movies. I hope he’s doing alright health-wise. However, I’m so thankful that he’s kept up his website of movie reviews.

Here is his list of The Best Films of 2008.
