Zagat, the restaurant reviewing people, have released their list of the 1,000 best movies of all time . The first three ( The Godfather , The Godfather II , and Casablanca ) are three of my very favorite movies (in reverse order), so I was pleased, though number five ( Lawrence of Arabia ) seemed to me so tedious I never finished it.

The fact that their surveyors rated Johnny Depp and George Clooney as their second and third favorite actors — Cary Grant being first — does give me pause, however, as does the fact that Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock were their favorite actresses.
