100 greatest crime films

Recommended Posts

I'm amazed that The Godfather and The Godfather Part II are not in the top 3. Oh well! For the last two spots I would guess No.2 as the 12 Angry Men and No.1 as the Maltese Falcon.

i doubt few could argue had they been 1 and 2. maltese falcon surely. 12 angry men might depend on how they define it.

I certainly liked Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but #14? :thinking:

Miller's Crossing should be up there.

This will probably be controversial but I think Reservoir Dogs should be higher up. Not for everyone but it changed the genre.

Then where are the David Lynch films? Blue Velvet (one of the best/scariest movie bad guys of all time), Wild at Heart.

I can't believe Casino is not in this list????   The opening credits artwork alone,  has more quality than most of the whole films on this list. 

I didn't think much of it when I first saw it,  but when I rewatched it, I was blown away.  I now enjoy it more than Goodfellas

I had not seen The Sting until about 10 years ago.  Now it is in my top 5 favorite movies.

I've just finished watching an awesome tv show, who has watched "Money Heist"? It's one of the best tv shows I've watched lately. Besides, all the reviews are really positive so that it's worth watching. I can also recommend a good website that provides a list of various streaming websites. It's a real find https://streamingsites.com

Bullitt at  #98... Give me a break.. One of McQueen's best and a superior supporting cast.  Great movie.

The number one movie must be "Gotti" (2018) starring John Travolta. Not only is it about crime boss John Gotti, it is also a crime against humanity that a film this abhorrently crap was ever produced, let alone released. Anyone associated with making this film should have been arrested and put away for life.
