According to a fan poll conducted by Empire Magazine, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is the greatest movie of all time, even beating out The Godfather, which came in at number 2. Frozen came in at a surprising 159 and another recent hit, Gravity came in at number 35. You can check out the full list here and the top 20 below.
I’m not sure how many people Empire polled and what, if any, criteria was used, but there are some rather impressive differences. Classic movie, Gone With the Wind made the top 20 on both the AMC and IMDb lists, but came in at 52 on the Empire list. Unsurprisingly though, The Shawshank Redemption remained high on all three lists.
I know if I took the time to reorder all 301 movies on the list, I would have a completely different list, but what about you? Do you think The Empire Strikes Back deserves the title of “Greatest Movie of All Time” or is there a different movie you would give that title to? Tell us in the comments!!
