I wish I could say that Moviefone was picking the Eric Roberts action film Best of the Best for something -- maybe best film to wrap up the '80s? Isn't that movie great?! Roberts, Phillip Rhee, James Earl Jones, Chris Penn... Tae Kwon Do world finals. Okay, sorry. I had to reminisce for a second. Anyway, Moviefone has scoured through the Academy of Motion Pictures' picks for Best Picture over the years and have come up with a list of The Best of the Best, the Creme de la Creme. It's one thing to pick the good from the bad, but imagine trying to pick the best from the great -- not so easy!

I have to say, they did a pretty decent job -- this list of 25 makes me want to stop everything and have an epic movie marathon. There's old and new, scary and romantic -- you name it, it's there. The list starts with Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, chosen for being the first decent Western in a while (at the time). From there, you can check out Tom Cruise, a little George Cukor, a man who loves Chianti, one of cinema's classic leading Woody Allen ladies, an epic bridge in a military thriller, one infamous slap, a killer game of Russian Roulette, and even more! I might have said too much already, so just head over there and feast in some great cinema, and then weigh in on how your Best of the Best list would look.
