Consider me biased, but I am *very* pleased with these results. 2001: A Space Odyssey may very well be my favorite film of all time, so it’s great to see it end up on top against some amazing competition. A little surprised that Ebert’s #1 film, Aguirre, Wrath of God, didn’t get a single vote though.
This Week’s Poll: This weekend saw the new Jackie Robinson biopic, 42, finish first at the box office. Harrison Ford is one of the stars of this film, and it got me thinking about his long and prolific career. This week’s poll is a pick two: what is Harrison Ford’s best film? Will this come down to Star Wars vs. Indiana Jones? If so, which ones? Perhaps Blade Runner or The Fugitive can push their way to the top? Let us know what you think!
Also, today is my birthday! While I will be busy working through the night, I plan on taking the day off tomorrow to celebrate. My plan? Spend the day at the movies! I will be seeing at least three films tomorrow, with the tentative lineup being Spring Breakers, Trance and The Place Beyond the Pines. If I’m up for it, I might squeeze in either Evil Dead or 42 later. Should be a fun and rewarding day after the madness that has been the last week!
Have a great week, folks!
