So recently, a friend of mine said something to the tune of Ali was one of the greatest movies EVER. When I called him on it and said I can name 20 movies off the top of my head that were better, he literally picked apart half of them, telling me why not. I'll give you my list and you tell me.
For the record: this is not a "hate on Ali, or Will Smith" session. I thought Ali was pretty good, maybe even great. And it's unquestionable Will's best work as an actor. I just don't think it stands up there with some of the greater or all-time greatest movies. Anyway here's the list I gave him:
1) The Godfather, 2) The Godfather II, 3) Casino, 4) Goodfellas, 5) Malcolm X
6) The Dark Knight, 7) Raging Bull 7) The Fighter 8) Scarface 9) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, 10) Training Day
11) The Silence of the Lambs, 12) No Country For Old Men, 13) Boyz N the Hood, 14) Menace II Society, 15) Gladiator
16) Man On Fire 17) New Jack City, 18) Saving Private Ryan, 19) Forrest Gump, 20) Star Wars
Bonus - 21) The Empire Strikes Back, 22) Return of the Jedi
Am I wrong?
