Empire Magazine has held a poll to find the 301 greatest movies of all time…

The poll saw over 250,000 people vote and the greatest movie of all time is, according to the movie fans, The Empire Strikes Back. Well, duh.

The full poll has The Godfather at number 2, The Dark Knight at 3 with The Shawshank Redemption hitting 4th place and Pulp fiction rounding out the top 5.

So, what do you think? Is the poll right? Let us know your thoughts in the usual ways.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
