The Greatest Movie Ever Made

No, even though I liked John Carter quite a bit, the greatest film ever made remains . . .  

Groundhog Day.

And I’m not the only one who thinks so:

“A Movie for All Time,” by Jonah Goldberg

Of course, that’s not denying that there are some other good ones out there, like Das Leben der Anderen and the original Manchurian Candidate.

But . . . well, they can’t all be winners.

Incidentally, I like The Manchurian Candidate even apart from the scene where Angela Lansbury’s character gets shot.  That part just makes it even better.

I can’t account for my wholly irrational dislike of Angela Lansbury.  By all accounts, she’s a very talented lady, and extraordinarily nice.  But there you have it.

I also enjoy the scene in Titanic where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character dies.  From my perspective, it’s the movie’s high point.

Does anybody know of a film in which Hugh Grant bites the dust?  That would complete a perfect trifecta, in my view.

    Looks like his character bites the dust in the sixth interwoven/interconnected story of Cloud Atlas. Of course, in this story line he is playing a “Kona Chief” in the post apocalyptic Hawaii of the year 2321.

    (Just a wild guess that killing off this character does not “count.”)
