Inang Yaya
It is the best touching movie I've ever watched. It deserves to be in the 1st rank.

nomercyz182

The best film of its kind, nothing else comes close. It is possibly south Park chan-wook is the best director of all
Engaging from start to finish. There is no other movie like it. Great acting, great story, and great directing.
[newest]
Just watch and you will see why.

3Seven Samurai
This is one of the greatest movies ever! A total epic and should be #1 and much higher on greatest of all time list!
One of the best movies from Akira Kurosawa

4Enter the Dragon
All time classic movie featuring the legend Bruce Lee.

5Grave of the Fireflies
This is the must watch movie, I would rate it 9/10.
One of the saddest anti war movies ever made

6Battle Royale
Battle Royale is a Japanese film that needs no remake, because director Kinji Fukasaku made it so realistic that after watching the movie you will imagine yourself part of the battle... "Life is a Game"
Great movie with awesome characters. The movie is very violent and twisted, but it's nothing that bothers me. Definitely a must-watch, especially if you've read the manga or novel!

sockersoppa

awesome movie - if you haven't seen it, see it
[Newest]A modern classic... It neither perverts the novel nor eclipses it; the two are equally thrilling versions of the same basic premise, but with very different themes. The Hunger Games sucks compared to this.

7Akira

8Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
its a household name and a great movie

Okami


9Princess Mononoke
Miyazaki's film... Its all I can say

10Kung-Fu Hustle
It makes me happy whenever I watch this movie.. I love stephen chow
The great Stephen Chow, like watching exaggerated live anime but it doesn't look cheap. LAugh trip
A great comedy with eye catching computer works!

The Contenders

11Hero
Great film starring Zang Ziyi. If you loved the famous trilogy of Zhang Yimou you're gonna love this.

12House of Flying Daggers
It is strikingly beautiful; the bamboo forest is by far the most outstanding viewing in the movie. The actors are very interesting as is the culture.
One of my favorite movies of all time. Visually pleasant to watch
Intense and beautiful. I love visually striking movies and this is one of the best I've ever seen. Ziyi Zhyang is always stunning!

13Sepet

14The Sentimental Swordsman

15Sholay
The greatest movie ever seen in Bollywood. Also Sharukh khan stared Dil wale dulhaniya le jayenge is another greatest movie in India.

16Moon Child

17Himalaya
A must watch movie... This movie will change the way you look at this world in a very wonderful way. An epic movie that unfortunately did not receive Oscar. However, I am not sad it did not because I undoubtly believe tat this movie just goes beyond Oscars. Amazing movie. Great soundtracks. A very amazing fact about the movie is tat the main character in the movie did not even know he was actually being shot for a movie as he was a just a simple illiterate old villager.
One of the gr8test movie of all time

183 Idiots
Best ever movie in the history of Indian cinema... Hats off to Amir khan..

This is the saddest movie I've ever watched, still it's an adorable movie with lots of romance! It's a Japanese movie based on a Manga series! There's also a Drama made! But it's different people there's acting in them... I've only watched a bit of the drama, and I've watched the movie 9 times, and I'd really recommend it, to those who loves watching Asian drama's and movies! You wont regret watching it! And you will fall totally in love with the male lead! It's just such a cute and touching movie! %% If you are going to watch the movie, make sure to have a lot of tissues... because they're needed!
Best movie ever. I've watched it several times and still crying. You must watch! And this movie is based on true story from japan
