What is the greatest movie ever made?

Citizen Kane, of course. "That's the official answer," according to Roger Ebert, in a very thoughtful article on what is a great movie and what is a critic's favorite movie.

Our Ben is no prisoner to fashion, though, as evidenced by the poster for I Am Legend, shown below. That is Ben's blurb at the top:

I cannot help but wonder at what point some ad exec will find this to be just a bit too hyperbolic and unbelievable. There comes a point when people see through this sort of nonsense and won't believe anything on the poster. Unfortunately, fawning and self-congratulations will get you very far in Hollywood.

thank you soooo much! Finally, someone who shares my sentiments about Ben Lyons. The guy has no idea about what he's talking about. He should stay walking behind his daddy while licking an ice cream cone...that last part got weird, but the point is, he should just keep his mouth shut. Thanks Guy.
