Alright. So what do you think of that? Do you agree with Empire’s list? Or do you think it needs some improvement? Either way, Terri White, who’s the Editor-In-Chief of Empire Magazine, found some time to comment on this result by making a statement which reads: “It’s been a phenomenal 20 years in cinema, so drawing up this list was no easy task for either our critics or readers! The resulting 100, though, is a testament to the verve, vitality, and pure power of film in the 21st century.” Which, to be fair, sounds completely reasonable, more or less, but can you say the same thing about the following two lists?
