Sorry I missed the latter part. Quite a few in the 2nd half I have to see now, and Metropolis is a great 1st place. Here's how I voted:

1. Haxan (1922)
2. Faust (1926)
3. The Cameraman (1928)
4. He Who Gets Slapped (1924)
5. Diary of a Lost Girl (1929)
6. The Last Command (1928)
7. The Great White Silence (1924)
8. Pandora’s Box (1929)
9. Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928)
10. The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
11. One Week (1920)
12. The Thief of Bagdad (1924)
13. Metropolis (1927)
14. Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler (1922)
15. The Astronomer’s Dream (1898)
16. Asphalt (1929)
17. The Unknown (1927)
18. The Lodger (1927)
19. The Penalty (1920)
20. The Phantom Carriage (1921)
21. Neighbors (1920)
22. Nosferatu (1922)
23. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

25. Waxworks (1924)


Those who voted for Trip to the Moon should check out The Astronomer's Dream. A shorter precursor.
