Latest Entertainment News Headlines

Scope the Sight and Sound top ten lists from the likes of Scorsese, Del Toro, Vaughn, Coppola, Mendes, and more!

08.24.2012

Sight and Sound header

Sight and Sound is a film magazine which, amongst other things, takes the time every ten years to poll academics, critics, directors, and other folk involved in the craft of making movies about their top ten picks for the greatest films ever made.  All of those choices were then compiled into one top ten list which made the news back on August 1st by unseating CITIZEN KANE from the number one spot.

The full list of people involved in the polling is long - really long - but well worth perusing, and you can do so right here.  Doing so will also give you the added benefit of being able to view any commentary that the list maker may have chosen to add, which is extra fascinating in the case of a filmmaker like Edgar Wright.

For those of you with less time on your hands, because I can guarentee that if you start reading those lists it will be nightfall before you stop, I've included a few of the lists below (with own my feeble attempt at the very bottom).  And why not take your interest one step further and put your passion where your mouth is - make up YOUR list and strike back below! You may have already done this several times over in Movie Fan Central, which is of course fine - copy and paste it below, keep your "honorable mentions" to no more than four, and then we can all respond and discuss as much as we wish in one centralized location.

Extra Tidbit: It's awfully interesting to me to see when an older and more accomplished filmmaker picked a recent film to include in their top ten of all time - Mendes choosing THERE WILL BE BLOOD comes to mind. Also, it's nice to see some love for MANHATTAN instead of ANNIE HALL, and from McDonagh of all people.

Easy.

1. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
2. The Great Escape
3. Evil Dead 2
4. Back to the Future (all 3 count as one)
5. Ghostbusters (both)
6. The Blues Brothers
7. Jurassic Park
8. The Life Aquatic: With Steve Zissou
9. Hook
10. In Bruges

The next ten would be a mishmash of Edgar Wright, Quentin Tarantino, and Classic Spielberg films. And An American Tail: Fievel Goes West.

One of my favourite aspects of the S&S poll is getting to see other director's lists. While many have the usual suspects, there's always a few surprises (Michael Mann including "Avatar", for instance). It also gives us, fans and academics, the chance to peer into the cinematic make-up of some of the masters (past and present).

My Personal List (This Week's Version):

Jaws (1975) - Steven Spielberg
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - Stanley Kubrick
Annie Hall (1977) - Woody Allen

Love this compilation of lists from some of my favorite directors.

Kinda bummed to see so many people only naming films made in the last 20-30 years. If we're compiling some of the best films ever made, I'd expect at least a couple black and white films. But I guess movie goers these days aren't into the classics. Mine in no particular order and trying not to repeat any directors my list would have to be:

Apocalypse Now - Francis Ford Coppola
8 1/2 - Federico Fellini
2001: A Space Odyssey - Stanley Kubrick
There Will Be Blood - Paul Thomas

In no particular order, and attempting not use anyone more than once...

1. Fight Club - David Fincher
2. Memento - Christopher Nolan
3. True Romance - Quentin Tarantino/Tony Scott... I think they deserve equal credit for this great film
4. Heat - Michael Mann
5. The Big Lebowski - The Coen Brothers
6. Brick - Rian Johnson
7. Chasing Amy - Kevin Smith
8. Ferris Bueler's Day Off - John Hughes
9. Taxi Driver - Martin Scorcesse
10. Silence of the Lambs - Jonathon Demme

I could really go on and on... I didn't realize how tough narrowing down just 10 would be.

Tarantino is my idol but his top tens (or twelve in this case) are always, at least half-filled, with some very weird and/or bad choices. But hey, opinions... Anyway, here's mine (the way it's today at least and only 1 film per director):

1. Pulp Fiction
2. Fight Club
3. Amélie
4. Casino
5. The Big Lebowski
6. Red Beard
7. Come And See
8. Sexy Beast
9. Full Metal Jacket
10. Ballad Of A Soldier

Love the "Red Beard" selection. I think it's Kurosawa's best work, and it sadly doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

Amen, I'm a huge Kurosawa fan and at one point, having seen nearly all of his samurai films I thought I had seen his best works. I was mistaken, Red Beard turned out to be one of the most powerful films that I'd ever seen and I'd say that High And Low is a close second Kurosawa favorite.

Most are really good but...

out of all of them I like Tarantino's, Mendes' and Vaughn's the most. Tarantino made a number of those lists and they always look differently, but a couple are always there, all of them I really enjoy. As for my list (alphabetically):
Back to the Future
The Big Lebowski
The Dark Knight
The Empire Strikes Back
Fight Club
Goodfellas
The Matrix
Memento
Pulp Fiction
The Thing
