Enterainment Weekly has reveiled their top 100 list of the greatest movies of all time, but did your favorites make the cut? Well, we obviously don't have time to go over all 100, but you can pick up a copy of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly to get the full run down. But we will break down their top five picks! In 5th place for Entertainment Weekly's greatest movie of all time is one of Alfred Hitchcock's best, Psycho. Debuting back in 1960, the American horror film was an adaptation of the 1959 novel of the same name, which was loosely inspired by the murders of Wisconsin body snatcher, Ed Gein. This movie changed the landscape for violence and sexuality in American films.
In 4th place is the 1942 classic romantic drama, Casablanca. Set during WWII, this wartime adventure is has a little bit of everything from suspense, to romance, to adventure. This was Humphrey Bogart's first time as a romantic lead, and we see his character torn between love and virtue. While it's a period film, it's one movie that people still fall in love with, even today In 3rd place is Bonnie and Clyde. This 1967 American crime film was unique when it was released, because it was one of the first films that was geared towards a younger Hollywood audience, and if you watch it, you will know why. It not only deals with the historical events of the original Bonnie and Clyde gang, but for its time, it dealt with some pretty heavy sex and violence themes. And the ending of the film was known for quite some time as one of the bloodiest death scenes in cinematic history. In second, there was a tie between 1972's The Godfather, and 1974's The Godfather Part 2. Because how can you honor one without the other, right? The Godfather movies are American crime dramas, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starred Marlon Brando and Al Pacino as the leaders of a power New York crime family. And there is no other movie in history that has made audiences more obsessed with the inner workings of the Mafia. In their number one spot, for the greatest movie of all time is the 1942 drama, Citizen Kane. If you have ever declared yourself a film connoisseur, you probably know this movie by heart, and you may also agree that its probably the best film ever made. The film is the story of a very wealthy newspaper publisher who dies, a story loosely based on the life of William Randolph Hearst, and his friends attempt to find the meaning behind his last word: Rosebud. So, there you have it, Entertainment Weekly's top five movies of all time, but how do they all stack up to your top picks? Let us know, down in the comments, and be sure to head over to our Facebook page, and send us your thoughts over there as well. For ClevverMovies, Im Erin White, and I will see ya next time.
