It's Oscars time. Somebody wake the Grouch.

Just passing through...

and I saw Earl's post concerning the screwball "film experts" list. I read the article and they had this to say concerning Goodfellas:

The 1990 film, based on the exploits of real life gangster Henry Hill, which starred Ray Liotta, Robert de Niro and Joe Pesci who won an Academy Award for his performance was No. 1 in a "Total Film" magazine poll published Monday.

"Goodfellas has it all story, dialogue, performances, technique," the magazine said.

Now, taking these attributes and applying them to most movies can lead us to only one conclusion; 57.8% of the movies ever made would fit their profile for the greatest movie ever made. Porky's might be up for the award or even The Brain that Wouldn't Die. That said I bring you the 10 Greatest Movies Ever, using this formula.

10. The aforementioned Brain that Wouldn't Die.
9. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
8. The Amazing Colossal Man
7. Bride of the Monster
6. Eegah
5. Mitchell
4. The Beast of Yucca Flats - Tor Johnson in a tour de force performance.
3. Parts (The Clonus Horror)
2. Prince of Space - can anyone forget Crank-whore, I mean Krankor.
1. Manos, the Hands of Fate - Torgo's still freakin' me out.

There you have it, the 10 Greatest Movies of all Time, and also my favorite MST3K episodes of all time. What was the name of that magazine again?
