Not too many surprises.After Hours did higher than i expected and The Departed did much lower.I always found After Hours to be a likeable film but nothing great.I know a lot people complained about The Departed being a remake but I found it better than the HK original.

Thanks LastYear,
I was actually surprised and pleased to see AFTER HOURS so high. Disappointed KING OF COMEDY wasn't higher...all in all I thought the results were interesting.
Thanks for voting...

Very interesting results. A bit surprised to see GOODFELLAS take top spot, but I'm pleased to see THE AGE OF INNOCENCE do well. I was also disappointed that KING OF COMEDY didn't rate higher, but that's polls for you, and this was great to take part in.

It didn't surprise me that Goodfellas won. That's the one I most wanted. It's a great film. He's done so many other great ones as well. It only won by like one vote. I was surprised that The Departed wasn't higher up on the list. It's my favorite film of his in years.

Thanks DC,
I actually though ALICE would have ended up higher. This poll was surprising in spots...

I've been absent from the blog world for a bit of time, so I'm catching up on all these older posts. Nice to see Taxi Driver so high on the list. In my opinion, it's Scorsese's best. Buuuut, then again, I'm not a huge fan of gangster films.
