    Best film of the 1950s - Seven Samurai (I understand this, but strongly disagree. Rear Window is easily the best film of the 50s)

    Best film of the 1990s - Goodfellas

    Best horror - Nosferatu (geez, again by far the best of the choices, Psycho, doesn't get a single vote [​IMG] )

    Best western - I'll break the tie for The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

    Based on the idea that the best film overall is certainly the best of it's decade and the best of it's genre, we have the following finalists.

    Best film overall:

    Seven Samurai

    2001

    The Godfather

    For myself, there are very few films that I'll pick over 2001: A Space Odyssey, and none of them are in this final [​IMG] therefore -

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    BTW George, Vertigo is the best film of the '50s. [​IMG]

    - Walter.

    Actually, Ikiru, Tokyo Story, The Seventh Seal, Ordet, and a few other films are better than Rear Window or Vertigo. [​IMG]

    I admire Seven Samurai a great deal but it's certainly not my choice for best film. But it's the nature of these tournaments that you choose from a limited list. It simply edged out the other two films, imho. But all are close and none would have been my choice for best film.

    All three are fine films and while none would be my absolute ‘best’ choice, I’d not be upset with either of the K & K entries as the winner.
