Goodfellas voted top movie ever

Citizen Kane relegated to sixth

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas has been awarded the top movie ever crown by Total Film - relegating the critics' perennial fave Citizen Kane into sixth spot. Scorsese is also honoured for Taxi Driver at 14th, but Francis Ford Coppola emerges as director of choice with three titles in the top 25 (see below).

Naturally, the list will provoke plenty of debate among film buffs - especially since the Texas Chain Saw Massacre (recently voted best horror flick of all time) is apparently a greater cinematic acheivement that Sunrise or Apocalypse Now.

And as for Goodfellas; well, it's good, but is it that good? Here's the Total Film top 25 for your consideration:

  1. Goodfellas
  2. Vertigo
  3. Jaws
  4. Fight Club
  5. The Godfather: Part II
  6. Citizen Kane
  7. Tokyo Story
  8. The Empire Strikes Back
  9. The Lord of the Rings trilogy
  10. His Girl Friday
  11. Persona
  12. Chinatown
  13. Manhattan
  14. Taxi Driver
  15. It's a Wonderful Life
  16. The Apartment
  17. Once Upon A Time In The West
  18. All About Eve
  19. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
  20. Apocalypse Now
  21. Crash
  22. Sunrise
  23. The Godfather
  24. Rear Window
  25. Sunset Boulevard
