The Great Movies (in alphabetical order)

This is a carefully planned list. Many factors are taken into account such as impact on history, audience reception, and importance in the world of film. But most of all I have considered my own personal taste. Now for those of you familiar with how I do things, you know that I used to keep this list in number order from favourite to least favourite; much like the American Film Institute’s 2007 list of 100 Greatest American Films of All Time. I had it this way for some time, with my “favourite” at the top in the number one slot, and my least favourite at the bottom (I hate saying “least favourite” because it implies that I don’t like the movie, which can’t be true because it wouldn’t be on this list if I didn’t like it!). Every now and then I would change the order a bit. One day I realized, “This list isn’t doing me any good.” You see, the numbers and the movies would change constantly because of personal mood on any particular day. One day Raiders of the Lost Ark might be at number twelve, and the nest it could be at number twenty-five. So finally I just said, “Forget it!” and arranged my list of Great Movies into a very useful alphabetical order. I haven’t had any problems since.
Of course, many of the films on here are pure and simple classics like Citizen Kane, City Lights, or Bonnie and Clyde. And why shouldn’t they be on here? They’re great films that deserve recognition. But there are several more obscure or less well-received films on this list that people always scoff at and say, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” And others they simply say, “What’s that?” So, in defense of myself, I say that a movie can be great without having a wide audience. There are many hidden and forgotten gems on this list. I do hope you check them out. Most of them are available on some form of home video and many can be found by simply searching online a little bit. It is one of the joys of film criticism to be able to go hunting for different little obscure titles that you can’t find in many places; titles like Dark Victory, Bugsy Malone, and Sullivan’s Travels. Now these three were big in their day, but since have faded into the deep and dark pool that is history. Fortunately, there are enough of us scavengers to keep these films alive and well on certain movie shelves around the country.
Now there are certain rules about a movie’s acceptance onto the Great Movies list. The first and foremost is that I have to have seen it (duh!). The others follow as such: 1) It must be at least one year old at the time it is admitted onto the list. 2) The film must have been given a rating of Four Stars or above by me to be considered a Great Movie. 3) It must have been played in a movie theatre at some point in its existence; therefore TV movies cannot be accepted onto this list. 4) It must be a feature film (at least 45 minutes in length) and not considered a mini-series; therefore short films and sagas like Lonesome Dove and John Adams couldn’t populate this list. It is difficult to maintain a list of this sort. For the most part, numbered lists are useless and pointless. I vow never to release a numbered list again. For this year’s list of the ten best movies, I will not number them, but display them in alphabetical order. Now it would be possible to go back and look at all my reviews written this ear and figure out which I favour more, but I’ll leave that business to you. I’ve had enough of numbered lists.
So here it is. The Great Movies. I hope this will expand your horizon and make you aware of the hidden gems out there. I hope it will also stir up interest in the classics too. So, happy hunting!
