Are we A) considering all great movies to be 10/10, or
B) are great movies 9.5/10, and there is a higher, 10/10 rating for the greatest of the great?

Assuming we are using criteria B, I would give 10/10 to:

Leone's movies
Ace in the Hole
Austin Powers trilogy - particularly the second one
The Aviator
The Bridges of Madison County
Casablanca
The Deer Hunter
Double Indemnity
The 400 Blows
The Godfather 1 & 2
Goodfellas
Grand Slam
Hannibal
Les Maudits/The Damned (1947)
McCabe & Mrs. Miller
Mean Streets
Mystic River
Out of the Past
Port of Shadows
Psycho
The Public Enemy
Raging Bull
Red River
Rififi
Rio Bravo
A River Runs Through It
Saving Private Ryan
The Shawshank Redemption
Stagecoach
A Streetcar Named Desire
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Vertigo


..........

I would give at least 9.5/10 to:
Act of Love (1953)
American History X
Argo
The Battle of Algiers
The Best Years of Our Lives
The Bicycle Thief
Body Heat
Cinema Paradiso
The Day of the Jackal
Eastern Promises
Forrest Gump
Fort Apache
Harry and Tonto
Heat
JFK
Legends of the Fall
My Darling Clementine
On the Waterfront
Peyton Place
Rear Window
Riso Amaro/Bitter Rice
The Roaring Twenties
The Silence of the Lambs
Sunset Blvd.
Waterloo Bridge

I have to emphasize that of the movies on  my 9.5/10 list, I would call many, if not all, of them Great Movies – and I have probably given many of these movies a 10/10 rating in the past. However, since I assume that for the purpose of this thread, we are using Criteria B – in which we give 9.5/10 to "great movies" and 10/10 to the higher level of great, the immortals – I have made these separate lists of 9.5/10 and 10/10 movies. But the distinction is very small and, if you ask me on another day to rate them and not look at my previous list, perhaps I would switch some of the titles. Point is, these are all damn good movies. And that should be enough. Truth is, I sympathize to a large extent with those who feel that too much qualification/categorization is not good; I wish I could just say, "I love all these movies," period.  :)

--------------------------

For those who simply can't get enough here are .....

------------------------ The D&D Bonus Features ----------------------------

So, now you know which are my favorite movies, but I know you are dying to know something much more important: Which are some of my least-favorite movies?

Firstly, as I have said in the past: I generally shut off a movie if I am not enjoying it, but I will only officially rate a movie that I have seen beginning to end. (I don't feel it's right to rate a movie as e.g. a 0/10 or the "worst" if I haven't seen the whole thing; after all, some movies do get better in the second half, etc.) So, this discussion is really "the worst movies that I have seen in their entirety," which, of course, means that most of the truly worst movies aren't even eligible for this discussion  ???
Okay, here goes:
I think worst movie I have seen (at least in the last few years) is .... The Book of Eli (2010, despite a great cast, Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1037705/?ref_=nv_sr_1  To be fair, I have no use for post-apocalyptic movies and I had no idea what this was about before I went into the theater to see it. But it was truly, truly awful.
Back in 1998, when I was 13 years old, I saw an awful movie named Home Fries http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119304/?ref_=nv_sr_1 . I remember virtually nothing about it except that i went around telling everyone it was the worst movie I'd ever seen.
Johnny Guitar was an atrocious Western, was actually painful to sit through .... but when I read how many people (including Leone) seem to love it, I decided to give it another try .... and my opinion was the same after the second viewing. Big Jake was another atrocious Western. (I just noticed it has a 7.1/10 rating on IMDB .... are you KIDDING me?) Actually, any movie that featured Patrick Wayne has to be atrocious - He is the worst actor in Hollywood history, period,  a man who would never get a two-cent job as an extra in a crowd of 50,000 people if his daddy wasn't the Duke.
On the other hand, some might argue that no later, color Western, can ever be as bad as some of the B-westerns of the 1930's. Those crappy movie, always in black/white, with running times right around an hour long, no money, probably shitty dialogue and relying just on shitty action, no production value .... the bad ones of the that bunch can never be better than even a shitty color A-Western from 30 years later with good production money and John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, right? Well, maybe .... on the otehr hand, if I am gonna see a crappy movie, I'd much rather see very short one than a long one. But to tell the truth, I've hardly seen any of those early B-Westerns. I saw a few shitty ones and then decided to never do so again. One particularly crappy one was called Son of the Border (1933) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024595/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 . Another one, from the same year, was called The Man from Monterey; the stars, in this order, were first John Wayne, and then his horse named Duke http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024293/

Here are the ones I can think of that I rate 10/10. I'm probably forgetting a couple ones right now:

Apocalypse Now
Once Upon a Time in America
Blade Runner
Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Vertigo
Paris, Texas
Un Air de Famille
Casino
Little Big Man
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
The Big Lebowski
Terminator II


That being said, only the following three movies perfectly match my idea of "perfection" (which doesn't mean I rank them higher than the ones I previously mentioned):

Once Upon a Time in the West
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade


That's almost 20 movies, after all. Of course, many movies you guys wrote here are 9 or 9.5 to me (There Will Be Blood, Goodfellas, Zodiac, Casablanca, North by Northwest, Chinatown, the Wild Bunch, The Bridges of Madison County, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Godfather, Rear Windows, The Conversation, 2001...)

Once Upon a Time in America
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Once Upon a Time in the West
Boogie Nights
Magnolia
The Master
There Will Be Blood
After Hours
Taxi Driver
Raging Bull
Cinema Paradiso
Paris, Texas
The Tree of Life
The Deer Hunter
The Thin Blue Line

These are more 9.5ish, 10 depending on the day:

The Thin Red Line
Days of Heaven
Dazed and Confused
Duck, You Sucker
Goodfellas
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Rear Window
The Wolf of Wall Street

EDIT: Whaaat no movies from black and white era?!! I'm a dingus:

Bicycle Thief
Sweet Smell of Success
Third Man
Greed
City Lights
Touch of Evil
The Hidden Fortress
The Trial

EDIT 2:

Although I don't think Altman's done a 10/10, I'd feel like a superdouche not to mention The Long Goodbye and 3 Women as so-close contenders.

My initial post was just made off the top of my head. But I just took the time to look through the list I keep of all movies I have seen, and then make some additions/changes to the lists in my original post, and I am all done now.

So, if you just read my post when I first made it, you may wanna check it again; there are significant changes now. and that is all, my lists are now final  :)

as a bonus, I added what I thought was the worst movie(s) ever, and you can do the same  ;)

I just put my lists in alphabetical order, and I suggest that all of you do so, as well.

Anytime you have a list of many movies "in no particular order," it is so much easier – for both the author of the post and everyone else reading it – to look through the list when it's in alphabetical order. If the poster wants to see whether or not he remembered to include a certain movie; or if any reader wants to see if a particular movie on a list, or compare/contrast lists, etc., it is so much more time-consuming and annoying to do that if the titles on the list are all scattered.

Therefore, I suggest that everyone – those who have posted here already and those who will post here in the future – take a moment to make sure the lists are arranged alphabetically. Gracias, Merci, Grazie, Kiitos, Thank You!  :)

yeah, I know your 10/10 list is a mile long. Any movie with real locations and noir cinematography  ;)


I don't know what T.H.'s list was - he says it is copied from somewhere - is that his list of 10/10's, or just a list of a bunch of famous movies for people to copy from/take suggestions from?

For his sake, I hope it's the latter. Cuz if it's the former, then all I can say is that anyone who can put Assault on Precinct 13 anywhere near a "10/10" list is nuts.
