Nah, I didn't "warn" you. I simply said I don't like lengthy list threads because people get lazy after a while. And it's not a "top" anything even though it's advertised as such. But yeah I get it.

If I picked a film I'd later on realise I should have picked another one, and later on another one and so on and so on. All my picks would always be wrong. Thus I can't participate.
Honestly, this thread is a futile effort as I could list out a hundred movies rather quickly that I would consider masterpieces and it would be almost impossible to rank them.

And then someone would come along and completely disagree with me.

You can add one every ten picks- I would love to see favorites from both you guys!  

I already need to watch 2001- A Space Odyssey with Lucas- I have seen it (and A Clockwork Orange is another one) a few times.  An example of what is supposed to be a great movie and I just don't get it for some reason.  I don't care for it.
2001 is a little slow getting to the point a little like the Godfather. Both have scenes that drag endlessly.
The first 20-30 minutes of the Godfather is a little slow but it is also necessary. After that though, the story moves quite well.  You know, I never read the book.  I probably should.
It reads like a script.  Not in a bad way, just pretty straight forward storytelling.

It holds your attention the entire time- Martin Scorsese directed it.  Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro give wonderful performances.

It knows how to tell a story. And its funny.

Yeah exactly.
It's a game. It's not meant to be definitive or defining. I enjoy compiling lists like this because I inevitably come across something I haven't heard or seen or something I have forgotten. I discover or rediscover. That's a plus in my book.

and also it allows me my sense of superiority. Such and such a person picked that horrible piece of shit. What an idiot.

Until that person is me then I am totally satisfied e.g. smug

24) Star Trek: First Contact (KenJennings)

I'm going to go ahead and selfishly add this one to the top-25. The way I see it, First Contact is the best Star Trek movie; but beyond that, it's just an all around great film. I don't think there is any other movie I would be happier to watch at any given time. Jonathan Frakes (Commander Riker) stepped up as the director, using his knowlege of the franchize to make a relatively low budget sci-fi film look like an absolute smash blockbuster. This was one of the last Star Trek presentations to make wide scale use of physical models, and combined them with CGI to give the film a wonderful rich appearance. This film also contains wonderful acting from Patrick Stewart and Alfre Woodard, who's climactic conference room argument stands up as one of the greatest moments of drama in Star Trek history. As a Trekkie, this movie had everything I want; science, humanity, humor, drama, suspense and parable. It may be hard to objectively label as a top-25 movie of all time for everyone- but it absolutely is for me.
