Empire’s 100 covers are finally out, got the one I really wanted at first try. What were the odds?
But here’s the rub. I’ve looked over the 500, felt very, very old that I’ve seen 349(!) of them but felt very strange at some that didn’t make the cut.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know whenever any of these sort of things are compiled by public vote there are always going to be things you’re going to disagree with. But these?
Included in the 500 BEST FILMS EVER MADE SINCE THE DAWN OF CINEMA:
School Of Rock
Superbad… *tumbleweed rolls across the blog*
Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull
Transformers (which incidentally come 4 places above Battleship Potemkin)
Not included (means that I think I would have put them in if I had any say in the matter):
The Great Dictator
Million Dollar Baby
The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg
The Adventures Of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert
West Side Story
Guys & Dolls
Bonnie & Clyde
Dead Poet’s Society
The Big Sleep
ANY film featuring Godzilla.
Great, great issue though all in all…
