The Godfather voted top Don

There was only one vote that really mattered this week, namely which movie really is the greatest of all time? That was the tough choice facing readers of Empire magazine, who sought to publish a list of the top 100 films in their June edition. After a mammoth count-up it was none other than the 1972 classic The Godfather which came out on top.

The cult flick’s unique blend of historical Sicily, horses’ heads and Mafia violence saw it beat many a crowd favourite to the top spot, including its sequel, The Godfather: Part II, which finished in twelfth place.

Making up the rest of the top ten (in this order) were The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Raider Of The Lost Ark, Jaws, Star Wars and The Fellowship Of The Ring. Quite why Sex Lives of the Potato Men didn’t make the cut is anyone’s guess.
