EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Voted Greatest Movie of All Time

According to a poll conducted by Empire Magazine Empire Strikes Back was voted the number one greatest movie of all time. More than 250,000 film fans voted in the poll, and it resulted in a list of the 301 greatest movies of all time. You can checkout that list here.

The previous poll was last conducted six years ago in 2008 with 10,200 voters, The Godfather was voted the greatest movie ever made that time around.

It's pretty amazing that the Star Wars sequel knocked Francis Ford Coppola's incredible mob movie down to number two. It's just adds more proof to the article I wrote last week about geeks inheriting the earth.
