Fans are sharing their 'perfect' movie and no one can agree on the same one

Fans are sharing their 'perfect' movie and no one can agree on the same one

People shared the movies they would consider to be 'perfect', and needless to say there was a lot of disagreement

People have taken to social media to share the films they consider to be 'perfect', and no-one can agree.

Figuring out what constitutes the 'perfect' movie is no easy task.

There's a popular expression often attributed to French poet Paul Valéry which says that 'a work of art is never finished, merely abandoned'.

Seeking out artistic perfection is a fool's errand and even the greatest of artists will always find some flaw in their work.

So what does this mean for people's 'perfect' movies?

Even a movie of the status of Citizen Kane, widely considered the greatest movie of all time, might not be considered 'perfect'.

As the huge variety of films put forward on the social media post suggests, 'perfection' could also mean something very different to different people.

Let's start with movies which are widely considered to be among the best ever made.

We've already mentioned Citizen Kane, but others could be The Godfather or Casablanca - very big, serious movies. But are they 'perfect'?

Being big and serious seems to be a theme on the thread as well, will many people suggesting films like The Dark Knight,The Matrix or Interstellar.

They're joined by others suggesting things like 2001: A Space Odyssey, No Country for Old Men, and Blade Runner.

So, does something have to be very serious or high-minded to make the cut?

Apparently not, because others suggested titles like Jurassic Park, Paddington 2, and The Wizard of Oz.

While these are undoubtedly brilliant films, you couldn't say that they have the grand philosophical and historical themes of a movie like The Duellists, which also features.

It's also far from confined to Hollywood either, with films such as Veer-Zaara and Swades, both starring Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan, also being suggested.

And that's before we even get into the world of animated films, opening up a whole different perspective filmmaking as an art form.

Pixar movies such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo made the list, as well as Dreamworks' Shrek 2.

There were, of course, also people who suggested films with poor reputations, such as The Room.

A few people suggested films from the Star Wars franchise as well, with Empire Strikes Back popping up frequently.

One person also decided to stir up some Star Wars controversy, writing: "Easily, The Last Jedi. Beginning to end it was perfect to the T."

Some people took a different route altogether with one writing: "None of them," while another commented: "Nothing is perfect."

Perhaps looking out for something 'perfect' isn't the best way to judge movies.
