At least according to the venerable Zagat, which conducts an annual survey and ranking of the world's top hotels, restaurants, spas, so on.
Pixar's "Finding Nemo" came in at 19 and was the only animated film in the ranks. It beat out "Dr. Strangelove"!
Here's the line up of Zagat's Top 20 Films of All Time...
20. "Dr. Strangelove"
19. "Finding Nemo"
18. "The Third Man"
17. "The African Queen"
16. "The Pianist"
15. "All About Eve"
14. "The Shawshank Redemption"
13. "Citizen Kane"
12. "It Happened One Night"
11. "Rear Window"
10. "Singing' in the Rain"
9. "The Lady Eve"
8. "The Wizard of Oz"
7. "Star Wars"
6. "To Kill a Mockingbird"
5. "Lawrence of Arabia"
4. "Schindler's List"
2. "The Godfather, Part II"
1. "The Godfather"
See the list and learn more about the films.
I have to say (and I know that I'm in the minority) That Nemo is my least favorite Pixar movie. But even with having said that even Pixars worst is far better then most of the stuff out there today.
Yeah . . . and The Godfather II gets ranked below the first film. Some critics swear part II is an improvement on Pt. I, and I agree.
One more demonstration of a subjective list, lemme tell 'ya . . .
