    What do you all think are the best screenplays of all time. Here is what the Writers Guild thinks.

    Do you really think Godfather is better than Godfather II? I don't think I do. And what is Network?

    The guild's picks for the top 10 screenplays:

    1. "Casablanca."

    2. "The Godfather."

    3. "Chinatown."

    4. "Citizen Kane."

    5. "All About Eve."

    6. "Annie Hall."

    7. "Sunset Boulevard."

    8. "Network."

    9. "Some Like It Hot."

    10. "The Godfather II."

  2. i'd have to agree.

    sunset boulevard and casablanca, both had their unforgettable moments and lines. :bowdown:

    American Beauty and Syriana are up there for me, I really like how complex the storyline is in Syriana, and I think the American Beauty screenplay is really written.

    Total Recall... think about it.
    Also, people have reffered to the The Green Mile adaptation as the holy grail of screenplays.
