We don’t mean to brag, but this is probably the best movie list ever compiled.When it comes to talking about ‘the best films ever made’, you probably think of the usual critics’ picks (The Godfather; The Shawshank Redemption; Vertigo) or the ‘Oscar fodder’ of years gone by (No Country For Old Men; Saving Private Ryan; The Godfather, again).And yes, call us conventional, but you will certainly find those films in this list because they deserve to be. But we’ve also picked out some of the movies we’ve most enjoyed; those movies that wouldn’t typically make the cut. For instance, we can’t think of a film that’s ever made us laugh as much as Bridesmaids or made us weep in life-affirming joy as much as Love Actually. Film buffs, you may choose to look away now. But we think, for those reasons, they deserve to make the cut.
