Wrap Up For GOI's 25 Movies 25 Years Special

Thank you to all the Game Of Inches authors and special guests for participating in my brain child of trying to come up with the 25 greatest films of of the past 25 years. I know we all could come up with more movies and there were many movies past 1987 that we would have wanted to talk about but we could not. What we do have though is a comprehensive list of what we here at Game Of Inches feel is the 25 best movies between 1987 - 2011.

For a complete list and a review for all of the movies you can either hit the link of the left side of the page to see all 25 films or you can search "25 Greatest Movies Of The Past 25 Years" or you can hit the Label with the same title.

Now that the 25 List has been completed here are some things I have noticed:

- This list does not include either Titanic or any of the Lord Of The Rings flicks. Only one author put Titanic on his list and only one other author put any of the LOTR flicks on his list (The Fellowship Of The Ring). I'm very pleased neither of these films made it on GOI's list. These are movies that seem to make it on everybody else's list and I'm glad to report they did not make it on our list.

- No David Fincher film made this list. That's good because Fight Club is overrated and I'm glad to not see that film on the list (Re-watch the film a second time after knowing the twist and tell me it makes sense). However, I am saddened because Se7en and The Social Network were amazing yet did not make the list.

- There is no film that all six of the voters put on their list. Three movies (#1- Pulp Fiction, #2- The Matrix, and #3- Inglourious Basterds) were voted on by five of the six authors.

- No movie starring Tom Cruise made this list. Part of the reason is because most of his great movies like Risky Business and Top Gun were made before 1987 and the other part of the reason is that his best movies since 1987 were good just not good enough. That is not to say he's made bad movies in the past 25 years it is just that when you limit yourself to only 25 flicks, Cruise films like Minority Report, A Few Good Men, Mission: Impossible, Magnolia, and Collateral are really good but just fell short.

- The actor that had the most film on this list was Tom Hanks with 3 (Forrest Gump, Toy Story, and Saving Private).

- Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future Part II, Forrest Gump), Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Jurassic Park), Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, The Departed), Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction) all tied for first with 2 movies each on this list
