Are any of these ’50 Best Movies’ Jersey’s favorite?

Denis Raev/Thinkstock put out a list of the 50 best movies of all time. It wasn’t one person’s opinion. A for effort in that they tried to actually base it on some data. It was compiled through ratings by critics and ratings by general audience on the Internet Movie Database and Rotten Tomatoes. C for outcome in that they have far too many old movies including Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin flicks.

I’m also not sure this list would satisfy a true Jersey audience. Sure it has some great movies to bring some Jersey grit like Goodfellas and The Godfather, but throwing in crap like Wall-e along with Singing In The Rain? Fuggetaboutit.

Didn’t have time to read such a long thing on air, so if you’re curious, here’s the full list. Notice it’s missing things like Rocky, As Good As It Gets, Jacob’s Ladder, American History X, and so many others better than at least a third of this list.
