Empire Names Ghostbusters 189th Greatest Movie of All-Time

Now 189 may not sound all that great, but just think of how many movies are made. Empire magazine has taken votes, notes, and polls from 10,000 readers as well as 50 critics and came up with their 500 Greatest Movies of All-Time. Besides coming in at #189, Ghostbusters was selected as one of the few 100 movies to adorn the cover, seen above. There were multiple covers and the Ghostbusters cover has already sold out. You can read the Ghostbusters review here. The Top 10 were as follows...
  1. The Godfather (1972)
  2. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  3. Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  4. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
  5. Jaws (1975)
  6. Goodfellas (1990)
  7. Apocalypse Now (1979)
  8. Singin' in the Rain (1952)
  9. Pulp Fiction (1994)
  10. Fight Club (1999)
Huh. I have only seen two (#2, #3) of those movies in their entirety. I probably should rent some of the others.
