The 1971 Francis Ford Coppola gangster epic beat Casablanca and Star Wars in the new book, which lists the best 1,000 movies - as rated by over 5,000 polled moviegoers. The movie's sequel also features in the definitive top 10. The book also lists moviegoers' most annoying cinema peeves, with people talking during films and high ticket prices topping the list. The top 10 films in the new Zagat guide are: 1. The Godfather; 2. Casablanca; 3. Star Wars; 4. Gone With The Wind; 5. The Shawshank Redemption; 6. Braveheart; 7. The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring; 8. Citizen Kane; 9. Godfather Part II; 10. Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
