Excellent countdown of the 100 best all-time movies in America!
20 June 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this AFI special tonight on CBS, the film institute has these specials every year and many classics stay on the list, while many change in rank and some even fall off and new films make their way in. Well anyway this was the first year I've watched and I must say I was impressed as Morgan Freeman did a fabulous job hosting and the clips and comments from directors, and stars was interesting to hear as told was the impact and culture impact that many of the pictures had made. For the most part I agree with most of the list I felt nearly 90 percent or better were deserving of making the top 100 list. It was so good to see Jack Nicholson classics like "Easy Rider", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", and "Chinatown" make the list. While thrillers like "Psycho" and "Silence of the Lambs" make the list because they always strike fear. And Brando and De Niro both had classics of theirs included in the list like "Raging Bull", "Taxi Driver", and "On the Waterfront" and "A Streetcar named Desire" and the highly respected "The Godfather". Yet legendary films like "Star Wars", "The Wizard of Oz", "Gone With The Wind", and "Singin in The Rain" remain top 20 hits of remembrance. "Citzen Kane"(1941) remains number one so I guess I need to see it someday! Really a good list of classics that stand the test of time and good work from the very respected AFI.
