By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: All lists are subjective, and most movie lists are flawed. But if there’s a constant when it comes to compilations, it’s that they always stimulate great debate. I’m loving the results of a Zagat survey released this morning in support of a new guide titled “The World’s[...]
