The Best AFI List
18 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains is by far the best of all of the AFI 100 Years lists, although I think that all of the lists were pretty good. I think that the AFI did an excellent job of incorporating heroes and villains from all kinds of movies. The top ten heroes and the top ten villains were perfectly selected.

It's frustrating to see that so many people dislike the AFI lists just because their own lists are different. Of course there are movies, quotations, heroes, villains, and songs which I wanted to be on the lists but were left off. None of my four favorite movies were even on the 100 films list. I know that no list could possibly please everybody, and the AFI lists do a very good job of having at least a couple of selections that everyone can agree with.
