    Star Wars, Titanic, Snow White, Gone with the Wind?

    Or, since I'm guessing this would be gross and not inflation-adjusted,

    Star Wars, Titanic, E.T., and Jaws?

      Yeah the list is not adjusted for inflation - I'd assume it would be vastly different if so.

      You got one while one of your misses I also guessed wrong.

        I missed that it was worldwide, I was thinking domestic. (Otherwise I was like ***, I know the first 2 of my guesses were 1 and 2 iwell into the nineties, cause I remember the news when Titanic dethroned Star Wars as the domestic box office champ).

        Having looked it up, the 3 misses were all floating around in my mind. Probably should've gotten one regardless, and I'd like to think I would've guessed at least one more had I realized we were talking world wide.

          Assume they are all American?


          My guesses:

          Godfather
          Lion King
          Titanic
          Jurassic Park

          I would have guessed E.T. but it was shot down below.

            • More fun game: highest grossing film by decade. That way you don't really have to worry about adjustments.

              My guesses:

                  Think newer. Much, much newer. And much, much worse.

                    • imho this is a more interesting list which is adjusted for inflation. Top 10. 5 different decades represented and nothing since 1997. I am surprised Jurassic Park didn't make this list. Jaws was one that I guessed wrong from the previous list.

                          Much more likely to be some sort of crappy comic book movie like Wonder Woman or something.
                          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
