The Top Ten

1
The Dark Knight
This movie definitely has the most evil villain you can imagine - this guy is crazy. No, actually he isn't: The Joker is nothing more than a bank robber and assassin, but the best one ever "created". Late Heath Ledger justly won his Oscar for the best supporting actor. This movie has the best and most twisted story I know, in which the good guys turn bad and prisoners become heroes. The Batman himself is the Dark Knight who saves lives without anyone saying thank you. This movie shows an unbelievable character development and is just perfect.
I thought good movies were in the past, until I see this one
Never seen so many plots overlapping each other, n finally each every plot superimposed each other to give us great climax
[Newest]The villain is awesome... Good job done by Christian bale

2The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King
It's unfair to split the Lord of the Rings because Tolkien meant for it to be all one book. And the movies too should truly be considered one massive film, which if it were the case, would EASILY top this list.

Nevertheless, LOTR: ROTK deserves to be #1. Dark Knight is fantastic, and I absolutely love it, but nothing beats the Return of the King.

There was a reason it clean-sweeped the Oscars.
A legendary epic, The Dark Knight was great but Return of the King was a benchmark in history.
Surprised that even when so much had to be covered in so less time - and the movie did last long for more than 3 hours - it still lived up to the high standards of the book. Skillfully made and aptly directed. The actors too have executed their task well.

[Newest]The dark knight beat this? How?


3Inception
People, are you serious? There's no way how any one of they movies are better than inception... Perfect shot... Best storyline I've ever seen... Great acting... Amazing action... Just a perfect movie... It was as interesting as it was confusing but in this movie it is a good thing
I love all the movies above this, but this is my favorite movie. Full of action, but revolved around story. Amazing character development. Even more amazing movie overall.

Love this movie! And human centipede is just plain disturbing..
[Newest]The best movie should be after the dark knight

4The Departed
4th? definitely higher than this!
Great cast great plot great director

GREAT MOVIE!
Should be 2nd, this movie had Jack Nicholson one of the best actors of all time time.
[Newest]LOL! I never watched this movie, and Jack Nicholson and Leonardo De? AWESOME!

5Gladiator
Hell on earth was not number 1 on the list it's a work of art and for the love of god way twilight number 5. Twilight sucks people
Really! Twilight is above gladiator?! One of the best movies, watched it like ten times and still not bored.
Amazing film, great plot and acting. Definitely worth a watch. 10/10!
[Newest]Not entirely historically accurate, but I was definitely not, NOT entertained!

6The Avengers
I have watched this movie over and over again.
Best superhero movie of all time

jeremyelmkies

Bombed it the is should be number 1

7Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest
A good mix of action adventure and comedy. A stellar cast including Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley all in a well written plot. Defiantly a franchise favourite...
It's a well planned movie. Nice settled and very thrilling.
Quite the thriller. May not be the absolute best but definitely one of them.
Interesting to see twilight here. Cannot imagine who would call it good acting though.
[Newest]This should be number one

8No Country for Old Men
You have no idea how brilliant this movie is unless you've seen it. Go fo it - I call it Human Terminator - Part I.

redgedawson

Perhaps the best movie ever! Should be at the very top of this list. This is no "kids" movie like the bat man stuff--I mean come on, are you kidding me?
Scariest non horror movie ever made in my opinion
[Newest]How is Human Centipede and Pirates of the Caribbean above this?

9The Human Centipede II, Full Sequence
I hate this nasty movie.
11? They are better movies
I love this movie

10Avatar
Let's go blue people! (No offense if I hurt somebody feeling or something)
28? Definitely should be higher.

The Contenders

11Django Unchained
Jamie foxx! Name's enough
My friend watched the movie, he suggested that I call him Django Freemen
Definitely the best movie I've ever seen, chrisoph waltz plays king schultz amazingly and you have no chice but to love him!

12There Will Be Blood
Amazing actor.. Daniel Day Lewis's performance is brilliant It takes a talented person to make a great film, but it takes an even more talented one to know when to say enough is enough. This is a film by Paul Thomas Anderson that has overshot the runway of movie modernity with something thrillingly, dangerously new...
Besides Mulholland Dr. , this is the best film of the decade. It is a great epic and a great masterpiece with an amazing performance by Day-Lewis. Anderson's seminal film, and one of the best ever made, probably in the top ten and even the top five.
Triple Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-lewis puts in an exceptional performance in this mind-blowing thriller.

13Pacific Rim

14The Maze Runner

15Twilight
NO I thought I'd vote no!
Apart from the love and all those stuff, there is a wonderful scene of action in the climax. But why isn't the entire Series here.
Nice story, love, action, thrill and even fantasy.

16The Dark Knight Rises
Worst movie ever. So disappointing
One of greatest pleasure to watch movie.

Raghavbakshiultimate

The Movie is so great. Just can't wait for the sequel.

17The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
These are all superhero fanboys voting these I mean seriously half of the top ten are fanboy movies!
Hunger games catching fire is way better than the dark night
Really?! This is the best move that ever existed and if you can't see that you are stupid just stupid stupid stupid. This is far better than
The dick knight rises garbage.

18Wreck-It Ralph
I'm gonna wreck it! No, let me fix it!

19Pan's Labyrinth
this might be in spanish but you can't pull your eyes from the screen. its a bit bloody but still childish enough to not be considered horror. its an adult fairy tail and has such a good story line.
Gruesome, magical, horrifying, hopeful... There are a plethora of words that could be used to describe this film. The best films have comedy in the mix, but that would ruin this masterpiece. From the very outset, you are in tune with the feelings of this girl as she tries to make her way in hard times and even harder places.
Finally a good movie on this list

20Spirited Away
Never got tired of watching this
