Why can't people see that "The Godfather" is the best movie ever and that modern movies suck in comparison to?

theres no art in movies anymore its all about special effects and how good actors look rather than about real acting or real stories and plots

    According to a poll a few years back, many people would agree with you about the godfather, the top 10 movies of all time were listed as:

    1. The Godfather - (1972, Francis Ford Coppola) (Marlon Brando, Al Pacino)

    2. Citizen Kane - (1941, Orson Welles) (Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton)

    3. Casablanca - (1942, Michael Curtiz) (Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman)

    4. Gone With the Wind - (1939, Victor Fleming) (Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable)

    5. Seven Samurai - (1959, Akira Kurosawa) (Takashi Shimura, Yoshio Inaba, Toshiro Mifune)

    6. Wizard of Oz - (1939, Victor Fleming) (Judy Garland, Ray Bolger)

    7. On the Waterfront - (1954, Elia Kazan) (Marlon Brando, Carl Malden, Rod Steiger)

    8. The Bridge on the River Kwai - (1957, David Lean) (Alec Guinness, William Holden)

    9. Rules Of The Game - (1939, Jean Renoir) (Roland Toutain, Nora Gregor)

    10. The Godfather Part II - (1974, Francis Ford Coppola) (Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro)

    And by the most recent movie on that list being released in 1974 (Godfather part 2), I think that also speaks to some older movies being seen as better than recent movies. But times will change, and some newer movies will enter into those ranks. But I too think that many of the classics are better movies due to the good stories, plots, character development, drama and acting.
