Live Poll: IMDb Poll Board User Top 10 Movies

As strange as it is, we covered many areas of Top 10 favorites but never the plain Top 10 Favorite Movies, I know for sure we didn't because I don't remember having suggested my personal Top 10 in any other poll. So here it is:

From this list of IMDb Poll Board User Top 10 personal favorite movies, which one sounds the most interesting?

I'll make the list once I get enough propositions (it's about Top 10 favorite not the movies you believe are the best in the world, those you watched the most in your life, you know by heart,  can watch anytime and anywhere and have a deep connection with)

Mine never changed in the past 10 years:
The Godfather
The Godfather Part II
Goodfellas
Once Upon a Time in America
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Scarface
Rocky
The Graduate
Tootsie
Back to the Future

List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls020465132/

I have no bias against documentaries so feel free to add one if you really feel hot about it.

i appreciate that but seriously...it would probably ravage my entire current top ten movie list...

better if someone were to make a top ten documentary poll as well and keep them separate...

but thank you so much for the offer...

'Nice to see Lars & the Real Girl. That might be on my list, too. I love that film.

I feel like I need to change up my list, after seeing everyone else pick a lot of top 250 movies...or I just have bad taste. :)

NDbportmanfan 1,

I did not consider whether any of my favorites are in the IMDb Top 250. I chose my favorites based upon their special meaning for me. Do not feel obliged to change your list to include more IMDb Top 250 films.

3. leonard cohen: under review 1978-2006

4. patti smith: hell hath no fury

5. bob dylan's new york

6. greenwich village: music that defined a generation

7. great american authors since 1650

8. van morrison: a glorious decade

Thanks, I really didn't rank them in this order urbanemovies: 1. The Godfather 2. Citizen Kane 3. Lawrence of Arabia 4. Chinatown 5. Cool Hand Luke 6. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre 7. It's a Wonderful Life 8. Apocalypse Now (Redux) 9. Dr. Strangelove 10. Das Boot

I don't really have a favorite anymore; although all these movies at one time or another were my favorite. It really hard for me to favor one over another, I prefer to to appreciate them with their particular genres, as being my favorite or the "best" Other than The Godfather (1972), most are not appreciated to the degree that I think they should be.
