Because I love watching movies, I watched AFI's top 100 movies tonight on CBS. The American Film Institute first uncovered what it perceived as the top 100 movies 10 years ago. Of the top ten, only one movie has retained its original position from ten years ago: Citizen Kane remains number 1. In case you were wondering, the first Godfather is number 2 and Casablanca is number 3 (ten years ago Casablanca was 2 and Godfather, 3), and the most recent addition to the top 100 list is the Lord of the Rings trilogy (although not even close to top ten), largely due, I think, to its use of special effects.
