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

Wow, great list UM - several just by looking at these titles have a 100% RT score. Nice picking.

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.

This is a great idea, Elmo! And it's so much fun reading everyone's great lists. But it's absolutely torture trying to choose just ten, lol.

The only thing I know for sure is that it will include Salaam Bombay (1988), Three Colors: Red (1994), Reds (1981), To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), Lost in Translation (2004), and Silence of the Lambs (1991). I'll post all ten soon and hope I won't change my mind a hundred times in a week.. :)

Just take your time, I'm re-arranging all the lists so they all have the same patterns, so i've still got some homework to do before it's ready. Not to mention I'm still waiting for some suggestions :)

I've been considering for a long time doing something similar to what ElM posted here.

My concept is to export the ratings for all the IMDb Poll Board and IMDb GS Poll Board contributors with public ratings. I would average the ratings and finding the 35 top rated films for the contributors and create a poll.

That would be amazing! I'm really curious about this Top 35. But it must be a lot of work.

I should hustle and try to rate more films, then, or at least my favorites. My ratings on IMDb are woefully incomplete. I started a list of my own, on my laptop, somewhere around 2007 and that list in incomplete but it has thousands, as opposed to the hundreds on IMDb.
