One of my favourite lists in this series and a genre that I generally enjoy. Nothing was going to stop Star Wars from winning here with ROTJ being my favourite of the series though I know that picking Revenge of the Sith would created great debate. Back to the Future and E.T weren't far behind, and certainly I believe this is a respected list with plenty of great films in contention. Next list will be Sport.
