The "yeah but you wanted it" thread initiated a bit of nostalgia for me. So here is a new thread: My list of the "Best Movies Ever Made": How the West Was Won - 1962 original version. It had the best cast of all time and was a great story of American History (and Carroll Baker was HOT!) The Longest Day - also 1962. Also a candidate for the best all-star cast and it was a great story of American heroism. Dr. Zhivago - 1965. A classic story, and provided a deep understanding of (then and maybe still) our biggest enemy - Russia The First Star Wars - 1977 (because it changed everything forever) I am certainly dating mysef (I am an old fart) with this selection, but IMHO there have been many good movies made since then, but damn few Great Movies.
