Movie lists are fun, if more than slightly moronic. They essentially try and take an artistic medium that is unquantifiable in terms of quality and then prove, definitively, which ones are the “greatest of all time”. Every list is completely subjective (obviously), so it’s futile to read any of them and say “yep…that’s the one. They nailed it 100%.”
However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t read a list (particularly a “reader’s poll”) and make deductions about the cross-section surveyed. For the first time in six years, Empire Magazine polled its readers and came up with the “301 Greatest Movies of All Time”. There are a fair amount of surprises (Klimov’s Come and See made the cut!), but the Top 10 reads not too differently from the average IMDB ranking — a collection of nerdy genre pictures with a few revered ’70s “classics” peppered in.

Makes me pine for the days when the denizens of the Interwebs were content with just making “Hottest Babes” lists–now we feel the need to let the world know what celebs we WOULDN’T bang?
If we must be shallow and superficial, is it too much to ask that we at least be POSITIVE about it?
To satisfy your morbid curiousity, these are the women that Ms. Stewart defeated to claim her crown as least doable actress in the UK:
2. Sarah Jessica Parker
3. Lindsay Lohan
4. Denise Richards
5. Kirsten Dunst
6. Mischa Barton
7. Hilary Swank
8. Lucy Liu
9. Tilda Swinton
10. Uma Thurman
Like I said: No accounting for taste.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to write an official apology on behalf of my entire gender.
