#2 all time according to www.IMDB.com, with the most votes of any other movie, and really tied with The Godfather for #1.....http://www.imdb.com/chart/top?tt0111161

Really surprising. Thanks for the links.

I just don't see it as one of the all-time greats. Like the poll indicated, Gump won best picture that year, and I'd consider Gump a superior movie as well. But like I stated, all lists are subjective, and to each his own. Great flick, but greatest ever? Not to me.

To even pick a "greatest movie ever" is a daunting task IMHO, and it'd really depend on your taste/age. Breaking it down by genre would probably be the way to go.

Like:

Greatest Anime: Akira

Greatest Sci Fi: BladeRunner

Greatest Horror: Jaws (?)

Greatest Comedy: tough one.....suggestions welcome


you get the idea

It's one of those movies I watch again and again. It's solid. No, not the best of all time, if there is such a thing.

SaintAkira asks about comedy? Blazing Saddles (uncut)...Caddy Shack...Young Frankenstien...Airplane!...Scary Movie...

I really like this movie a lot and could watch it more than once unlike most movies, with that being said Its not the greatest ever but its up there on my top 20 list of all time

To compare Shawshank and Forrest Gump is like apples and oranges, no?

I definitely think Shawshank should be at least top 20 in most people's list, but so should Forrest Gump.
