I gotta go with Hawks' Scarface. I've found myself pulling it off the shelf far more than either of the Godfather films and while Goodfellas is a very good film, it just doesn't captivate my interest on repeat viewings.

It's hard to decide between the two Godfathers. I like Michael's rise in 1, but also like Vito's rise in 2. I'll go with 1, but ask me tomorrow and my answer could be 2.

Wow, I've seen all of these. Gotta go with Godfather II, but Once Upon A Time In America should be on the list.

Goodfellas. I never cared for The Godfather movies, though I respect them. Pulp Fiction and Scarface are trash imo. Never seen the rest.

I like them all!
Few other good movies are missing also.

I voted for Goodfellas.
