The Top Ten

The Godfather
No doubt the best movie of all time. This has one of the better casts ever in a movie.
Great Movie, has everything a movie should have, and more.
This is 100% the best movie of all time...
I know all those Citizen Kanes or Casablancas but hey,
Marlon Brando's got an offer you can't refuse...
Best acting(both brando and Al Pacino) as well as direction... Best quotes of all time...
What else can I say it's the whole life of a godfather in the film
[Newest]This movie made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

2Forrest Gump
My all time favorite! Never feel boredom to watch again and again
A true masterpiece. This movie is a real thing of beauty, inspirational and superb. A lot of us could and should look up to Forrest Gump.
Forrest Gump and 2nd goes together like peas and carrots
[Newest]Good movie but not number two.

3The Shawshank Redemption
Fantastic movie! Well acted, well plotted, well filmed. Such a beauty to watch over and over.
No love intrest, no car chase, no big battle, no great views of the country, but the best tale you will ever find on film, a wonderful story with things that will chill and warm you. This has only one problem, you can only see it the first time once
This is my favorite movie of all time. Stephen King's best.
The Godfather is my second, though. So I understand the choice.
[Newest]Best movie till now

4The Dark Knight
Best comic book movie ever made. Ledger was damn mesmerizing as the psychopathic Joker. Bale delivers a great Batman and the best Bruce Wayne. His Batman would've been best if it had not been for the voice, although I enjoyed listening to it. It's just that I've never imagined Batman talking like thAT. Easily beats every comic book movie ever made, except maybe Batman 3 which is currently in the process of getting made. Just my Humble Opinion.
One of the finest performances of the villain and great screen play by Nolan brothers
its one of the greatest movie I have ever seen
[Newest]The Dark Knight was awesome loved it, more batman more batman waiting for the next one

5The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Have them all as well as the books.
Greatest films ever.
Films above go away.
Keep voting!
best movie ever, the fighting sequels were great and the action was great better than harry potter
[Newest]I just finished the Fellowship of the Ring book in the Lord of the Rings series and I'm starting on the Two Towers book. I read An Unexpected Journey and watched the three parts in the movie. I really need to read all of the series before I watch any more movies. Or else I will be all excited and I might scream at the top of my lungs. That might not be my best choice, either because I live in an apartment. But still, I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to watch this movie.

I really love this movie! Because this movie proves me one thing that love can last forever!
I fell in love with Jack and the story. It made me cry. I wish I could have marry a guy like Jack. A guy who would teach me things, love me so much, and would do everything just for me. Keep voting!
The movie has really a catchy factor, even though I haven't finished watching because the electric current went off, I still watched the 3/4 of the song and I really love it... I like the story of how they met and how love was eternity for both of them! The story is exemplary, it is so sweet...
[Newest]I know that I am heartless but I laughed so hard through this hole movie that I actually cried from laughing, the people falling off where so funny. The actual even wasn't funny though of course. I loved this movie

7Pulp Fiction
I'm surprised that this movie and indeed none of the quentin tarantino movies are in the top 10
Everything in Pulp Fiction is GREAT! The actors, the script, the music, the chronology. It's the masterpiece of a genius and the best movie ever. Period!
The most innovative film since Raging Bull. The greatest use of a non-linear plot structure ever. Tarantino brilliantly transfers an Elmore Leonard style of dialogue to the screen. Samuel L. Jackson has one of the most menacing, yet emotionally resonant performances ever put to film, and yes it is also freakin hilarious. Forrest Gump and Titanic are tone-deaf films made for the lowest common denominator.
[Newest]In my opinion, it is the least predictable film ever. When I watched the store-scene, I was like: "What just happened", and that was in a good way! The amount of hilarious comments from Jackson is not even countable. It is just pure class!

8Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back
The level with which I identified with these characters, the insane suspense during the final scenes, wanting everything to turn out okay and knowing that it just CAN'T. I will never forget the first time I saw this. And it's just as good the 100th time around.
I'm a MAJOR STAR WARS fan and this is one of the three greatest movies of all time (I think)
It was tough to choose, but in the end...
[Newest]Who the heck voted on this list! It's Star Wars!

9Fight Club
When I first heard about fight club, all I thought it would be was just a few men fighting and nothing more. I then went to watch the film AND IT BLEW ME AWAY! It was absolutely incredible and really made you think. The story line, the characters, the twist at the end is just incredible. Easily the greatest film ever!
Gritty and brutal but it makes you think and it is so well thought out, produced and acted that it is nothing short of a masterpiece that can be viewed time and time again.
Every time I see this movie I just want to start a fight with someone. The story is great and really makes you think about the person you are and the person you want to be.
[Newest]One of the best movies

Maximus to Commodus: "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

Most bad ass quote of all time
This has to have the best series of fighting scenes ever, and just the story alone is a really good story, why its not at the top I don't know.
Russel Crowe did great acting
And its one of my best movie
He didn't gave up because he loved his family and he wanted revenge
[Newest]It's dramatic and the line of you are already dead I loved it show your kids any day best movie

The Contenders

11The Matrix
Totally the best movie ever! You really feel apart of this movie, and that it really is like true life. But not. The Matrix has you! Neo is the coolest! And the effects are mind blowing!
The matrix is just the best film. It just is, and it made me wonder whether this world actually exists. I can't believe it is only rated here!
Parallels the most important events in modern history - being perpetrated right now. We've been kept in the dark for far too long, like those in the Matrix not ready to be unplugged. Dare to learn the truth and take the red pill. But remember, all I am offering is the truth, nothing more. Do separate searches on YouTube: agenda 21, Ron Paul, economic collapse, Bilderberg, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Judge Napalitano. Volumes of overwhelming evidence. And then no, you won't be able to go back. But if you could, would you really want to?
[Newest]Should be number 1

This is the best science fiction movie in the world. After watching the I wonder about the concept of this movie. If anyone understand the movie correctly I trust that he/she will tell it is the best of the best movie in fiction science. This is outstanding, I watch it many time.

The first 10 minutes of this movie is visually and emotionally stunning.
I loved it, this my fave, the first 20 minutes is awesome
Love it. This my fave, it ties with like 12 other movies, but I just voted for this one.


[Newest]A master piece that should be properly ranked.

14Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
Its really a good movie and has a well built story. I'm voting this because it is my last harry potter movie and I will really miss Harry Potter. Vote for this harry fans
Can't believe this film at this position. This is really an amazing movie... Might be not in top 3 but it expect at-least the top 10 position. Please potter fans vote for this film.. And surely we are going to miss harry a lot.. Please if you can vote and comment..

15Back to the Future
why isn't this higher!? every actor is so genius! the script is so hilarious. I quote it everyday. and it was such great effects for when it was filmed. I simply love it ")


Everytime you watch it you spot something different. Very funny script! "Hey Lorraine if you ever have a kid that acts that way I will dis-own you"
Amazing movie, amazing script, amazing actors. The best movie period.
[Newest]This is probably the most fun movie to watch.

16Star Wars
The sci fi classic that paved the way for a lot of action classics and also launched the greatest franchise in history.
This should be in the top 20 somewhere and it is the beginning of the world's biggest franchise of all time! Give it some recognition on this list, it is a legend!
STAR WARS... I mean, I really don't need to say anything else. Oh and also HAN SHOT FIRST!
[Newest]What? Harry blooper better than star wars?

17Requiem For a Dream
most disturbing movie with a climax so devastating that you think that the characters did'nt deserve this hell...
The best movie of all. It made me think about my life and what I want to get of my life. Really good movie!
Very well done disturbing and dramatic you can't look away
[Newest]A movie that disturbed and depressed me so much that I felt sick for the entire next day. by far the most powerful film of all time.

William Wallace is the real man, I could never see a person who can die for his country and his love too, if you saw that movie hundred times I seriously take the responsibility in the and end of movie you'll have a crazy smile on your face.
I love this movie, definitely my favorite movie of all time, better than Gladiator at least.
The best movie I had ever seen. Mel Gibson has the spirit, I how he does his job.
[Newest]I've seen this movie like a thousand times and could watch it a thousand more. Such a beautiful inspiring story and amazing battle scenes.

19The Lion King
My all time favorite movie. I could live forever with only this to watch.


Hakuna Matta... What a Wonderful Phrase... It Means no worries for the rest of your Days!
[Newest]Hyenas Were The Best Characters

20Schindler's List
Profound... History telling in a manner that is bound to leave you thinking and pondering over a lot of questions... From who are we as humans? Are we able to forgive and to share the bond that humanity is all about... Why do we fight when it belongs to no one and yet to all of us.. And yes to see a man crying for the rings he wore... That could have saved someones life is definitely beautiful...
A great way to show the impact of a true tragedy. My daughter sat with her Daughter and watched it about 4 times, the first couple stopping and explaining the historic relevance. My Grand Daughter has some learning disabilities and they planned to watch the movie in school. I am proud to say My Granddaughter was the only one in the class able to discuss the movie and according to the Teacher was able to help the other students understand more about an awful time in history. It is well worth watching and re watching especially with children so they understand. After all those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Just recently watched this movie, and I can say it is absolutely one of the top ten movies I have ever seen in my life. Not too heartretching, but enough, but the character of a man who was wise and by his wisdom acted out a roll that saved many. He did not become evil or even kill evil, he used his talents, wealth, and wisdom to save others. Bravo to this man and Bravo to the writer, and thank you for the experience. With many murders in this day and age, how to not agree with but continue a path of the greater good, and to use it for the greater good had an amazing payoff. I just say WOW!
[Newest]Absolute masterpiece! Feels like you are watching real World war days.

21Terminator 2: Judgment Day
The first Terminator was alright and passable, the third one was totally awful, but Terminator 2 really knocks out, Arnold gives a great action performance. One of the greatest Action movies of all time, and it deserves to be in the top 50, it is not right to have the best Terminator down this far! It won 3 academy awards for its groundbreaking effects which are so much better than the first one! James Cameron is a director who prides himself on making fantastic movies and this is his BEST piece of work!
E best performance I have ever seen from Arnold Schwarzenegger as he revives the Terminator series and revolutionizes robotic science fiction films.
THIS IS the greatest movie of all time.


[Newest]This is a great movie # you've been targeted for termination

22The Wizard of Oz
This movie is a classic why is this so low on the list, why, I mean this movie is brilliant, it takes me back to a simpler time and place.
When Dorothy opens the door into Munchkin land... I still loose my breath
This movie is one of the greatest films with excellent actors and with a wonderful Judy as Dorothy Gale. A pure masterpiece.
[Newest]Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly!

23Citizen Kane
Idiots are deciding this list. I am sorry, but really, I have nothing else to say. People are retarded, and they are voting all of the-top-tens. Com
How is it possible that Twlight, The Notebook, 300, Scarface & Brokeback Mountain are all ahead of Citzen Kane widely considered one of the greatest pieces of cinematic art of all time. There is some real class A morons voting on this list.
Sadly, this movie has never been appreciated by the masses. In order to understand it's brilliance you have to really take the time to read about the history and cinematography behind the movie and Orson Welles. Just sitting down and watching it isn't going to cause people to fall in love with it. Once you learn it's phenomenal backstory, however, it is undeniably the best film ever made.
[Newest]How is Fight Club and Marvel's The Avengers ranked higher? Excuse me while I be puking.

24Marvel's The Avengers
This movie was the perfect creation. It was made at the perfect time of the Marvel character development stage, and with modern technology, comic book heroes with the incredible depth and allure of imaginative geniuses came to life. With the vast data pool of Marvel knowledge collected by most to see and enjoy The Avengers, they will only ever see it as THE compliment to the universe Marvel Studios has created. With a refreshing mix of action, comedy, emotion, predictability, and unpredictability, it creates new pathways and ties in others, and leaves you only wanting more.
The plot was perfect. The animation was completely amazed me. It reached a big success in super hero movies. Defeat the other else income if I could say so...
I don't even know why this isn't on the list. This movie has been recognized internationally as the best movie ever made, not to mention the extensive budget used in it. Basically, it has a platoon of great actors. I mean, please: Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, etc...
[Newest]I like this because it's story was clean and great.

25A Clockwork Orange
Confusing, beautiful and hilarious. This movie confronts the audience with only the finest, most carefully crafted chaos. Whacky characters and superb irony. This movie has cult-followers for a reason.
Amazing, truly amazing. A masterpiece that does the book well. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie even after the 7th time through
Controversial, Futuristic, Masterpiece, Alex DeLarge and Droogs, Milk Plus, Humanity spirit, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Ludovico treatment oh this movie will cure you alright why not in the top 10?
[Newest]An original! Never seen a movie quite like it before.

26The Dark Knight Rises
Clearly the best of all time, get this one up in the top ten
There's not even an argument... BANE
68? Wow should definitely be top 10
I honestly don't see how this isn't number one when I saw it I was completely blown away it was ful of humor sadness yet tons of action!


[Newest]Dark Knight was better. Sorry Bane, Heath Ledger took the show

27Jurassic Park
My name is Dustin Bible and I cannot believe that Jurassic Park is only 33. I mean I love dinosaurs, despite the fact that mixed dinosaurs from two different time periods and that doesn't make sense to a dino expert like myself. I mean come on who was the fact checker on this. I read the book and the dang T-Rex doesn't have such a dramatic part. Since we are on the book what happened to the aviary. They saved it for the crappy third movie just so they could get that overrated short-armed chicken looking T-Rex more screen time. Why didn't they have an "brontosaurus", sorry I prefer the unofficial name.
Hi, I'm Tom Jeferson and I believe that if the movie had actually tried to follow what the booki was, it would've been too long but still, the book had way better scenes like the boat chase. One thing the book had was more characters and Muldoon actually lived. While I'm typing this, the first Pirates of the Caribbean was better than the second, and harry potter was an alright book series, wasn't a fan of the movies. Though I concure, the genetics could be used to make cloned dino's, but their molecular structure would be too unsecure for them to adapt that fast. I doubt if in reality they could even breathe out air, if all of the parts were even there.
If you can make a movie about dinosaurs that awesome and believable then you deserve to be number one


[Newest]Most groundbreaking film ever.


Gotta love it, gotta love it, classic man..


Rocky is the greatest underdog story, and provides great entertainment. Don't bother with the fifth one, though.
Holy, this sky rocketed Stallone's career higher then any other actor.


[Newest]Sylvester Stallone is my favorite actor

Best film that Scorsese has ever made! Full of great actors, funny moments and a thorough story!
The best movie Scorsese has ever made. How it didn't win best picture oscar is beyond me.
The best movie of all time, joe Pesci made this movie and it stands today as one of the definitive Crime movies and will always!
[Newest]Fantastic I can't believe thi does not even make the top 5, it's my best film of all time and I have seen many films in my time

30The Godfather, Part II
This movie is within the top 3 films of all time, and generally even better than Part I. Al Pacino was more developed in this Part, plus great performances from Michael V. Gazzo (Frank Pentangeli) Robert De Niro (Vito Corleone) and Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth) all of these men got nominated for an Oscar and Robert De Niro ended up winning the award!
This is, one of the biggest films of all time definitely top 20 material
Its a great movie, but not as much appreciated as its Legendary Predecessor
[Newest]Better than the original by far.

31Gone With The Wind
Gone With the Wind is the absolute best all-time movie ever made and it has the Staying Power to prove it. Most of the voters here have probably never seen it. What a story! What a movie! I have watched it many, many times and love it all the more each time. See this one if you want to see a Real Epic!
How can people say gone with the wind is not the ALL TIME GREATEST MOVIE. I am only 20 years old, but this is the best and always will be the greatest movie ever made. I mean you put fight club, and gladiator at top 10. Those don't even compare to Gone With The Wind.
This is a Classic, I would say defintiely Top 5, Movies from this time period were made with such better and longer story telling, lots of details and with out a doubt great acting! Vivian Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia DeHaviland, ButterFly McQueen and so many good ones. I have watched this movie numerous times and always one of my favorites!
[Newest]It's basically confederate propaganda.

32One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Number 100? Should have been the number 1. This was a classic. A real, timeless classic. Every human being in this world should watch this movie. I love Jack Nicholson, this is his best role ever. Sorry the Shining fans.
all in all a very powerful film an american classic


This great story was done as a small theater production in San Francisco. It ran for many years (10 or more) with Johnny Weismuller, Jr. In the Lead Role. Michael Douglas was filming Streets of San Francisco the T.V. series and saw the play... I imagine he thought to play the lead role himself. He purchased the rights and Nicholson was cast. Don't know whatever happened to Weismuller... Likely broke his heart since he'd been the soul of this small theater production for so many years.
[Newest]Should be number 1 absolutely loved it

James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!
James Cameron has done it again


This can't be 39! I was expecting this to be number 1! I go to the bottom of the list first then I go higher and higher and I am very disappointed seeing my favorite movies so low in the list! But this is shocking for Avatar to be all the way down here! I think people are still mistaking this for the Last Airbender (trash) or something! I have no clue why people hate this movie! And I have no idea how people like Inception! Most confusing piece ever seen! But Avatar was the only movie I have seen in my whole entire life to have me as far to the edge of my sit as possible almost falling off, my jaw all the way down, my neck aching, and my eyes far wide open and they did not burn at all from staring and staring and blinking every 5 minutes. If there's a movie in this world that should be number 1 it is Avatar enough said!
[Newest]How come this movie not in the top ten list? People crazy?

34Toy Story 3
Possibly the best movie ever made! It was nominated for best picture, but it didn't win which kind of makes you sad! It had a great storyline, because the preschool that they go to is treated as if it is Alcatraz Prison
I personally think that the toy story series is one of the most, if not the most classic series out there.
How Can This Be At The Bottom Of The List It's So Good


[Newest]I like toy story 3 but why in the hell did they put toy story 1 on the worst list

352001: A Space Odyssey
This film is incredible, mostly because it transcends its label of being a "film", which is a feat that only a few pictures have ever achieved. It is an experience. Kubricks vision propelled decades beyond 1968, offering us the chance to contemplate our existence, the advancement of technology and why we are here. The stunning visuals hold up wonderfully even to this day, and the orchestral contribution can take you from awe and beauty, to fear of the unknown in minutes. A truly glorious and atmospheric depiction of what lies beyond.
A true masterpiece. Seeing this movie for the first time is a unbelievable experience.


Can't believe this is only number 128 when it's one of the deepest films ever made. Filled with messages and ahead of its time. Great special effects, everything about it is perfectly done. Stanley Kubrick is so underrated on this list, half of his films should be on here.


[Newest]2001 was the Justin Bieber of movies, it made less than no sense.

36The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
This movie is considered to be in the top 20 movies of all time, and it is this low? You have got to be kidding, nominated for 14 oscars including best picture. It had some amazing scenery and visual effects and excellent performances from the actors.
The most amazing journey and quite possibly the greatest movie of all time if you really think about it! The greatest Fantasy of all time, nominated for 14 Oscars and won 4. Any website would definitely put this in their top 20 movies, I don't understand why it is so damn low!?
top 20 for sure, this is one of the best movies of all time in my opinion and in everybody's opinion this website is so corrupt
[Newest]Best movie ever, and far!

Al Pacino is iconic. The Cuban in the suit is a phenomenon. A very colorful and comical crime classic.
Favorited by many, this gangster epic is a top tale of how somebody can just crumble. Just remember when you reach the top, you can only come down.
Scarface was revolutionary at the time. Al Pacino 4 Me THe Best Actor next To Marlon Brando. This Movie deserves Nr 1 damn sure


[Newest]This should be the 2nd best what?

38Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Sensational conclusion to the greatest franchise of all time. This movie was an amazing hit and it will always be in our heart, also just plain awesome! "IT'S A TRAP! " is the best quote from Admiral Ackbar
Most definitely better than a lot of movies on this list and is thrilling as anything. The most amazing Sci Fi of all time, but had a stupid ending!
It was the weakest of the trilogy. But it still is an amazing movie to watch over and over again, great action and an unforgettable conclusion.
[Newest]How is ROTS over this?

39Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
This is my best film ever, the drama and the tragic downfall of Anakin and becoming Darth Vader is awesome and the lightsaber duels are the best in the entire Star Wars Franchise! Should be at least in the top 50.


The turning point of the whole series! Best star wars movie of all! The tragedy of Anakin turning to the dark side and the falling of the jedi! What worse could've possibly Happened?


One of the best films in all the land. Yummy yummy bud
[Newest]By far the best!

40The Silence of the Lambs
How is this so low, its one of the best I've ever seen!
Every second of this masterpiece is perfectly crafted. It is the most spine-chilling, horrifying journey into the human psyche imaginable and it terrifies me every time I watch it. There will never be a better movie made than this one.

4512 Angry Men
In every single way, the most interesting film of all time! It should be in everyone's top ten movies of all time. On IMDb this is rated 8.9/10 and is number 6 on the greatest films of all time, at least it has recognition on that site, not like here!
This drama setting in a jury room is one of the powerful dramas every. Shows you how one man can help save a persons life. I never get tired of watching this movie.

46Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Come on people vote for the Holy Grail and keep it above that awful crap twilight. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
This movie is a classic! It is such a funny movie. The acting in it is superb and the plot and script are well put together. The budget for this was so low at the time, this makes it even more astounding to see what the production team have done with the movie to give it such a good result. Come on people, get this movie further up the list! R
Such a great movie the more you watch it the funnier it gets. Every scene is epically funny.

47The Green Mile
Great movie, it has a mix of different genre's. Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Drama, elements of Horror and it is a memorable movie that is an amazing achievement!
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This movies covers a great variety of genus. It's funny, make believe, lots of drama, passionate, tender, yet filled with criminal actions. Excellent movie, it will be hard to beat it.
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! Some scenes are scary some funny and also some really sad. This movie combines the best of every genre of movie and moulds it together to make a brilliant film. Tom Hanks Plays a brilliant role (as he always does) which makes the film much more enjoyable. the whole cast were brilliant. this is the perfect film! No other film can come close. If you have a spare three hours in your life just check this film out.

48The Hunger Games
I love the hunger games but it kinda sad you should watch it please vote for the hunger games please THANK YOU IF you ARE GONNA VOTE FOR THE HUNGER GAMES
Not only is it a great movie all in itself, but it conveys an important message. It teaches you to fight for what you believe in and that The corrupting force of power and privilege, the inhumanity of the mob, and how both conspire to make people do the unthinkable.
I love THE HUNGER GAMES! And I can't wait for the next one two come out. It comes out in November on the 22. This year!

51The Shining
From Stanley THE MAN, the Shining is one his best movies. So dark, troubling, and haunting that it bothers you for years after you see it... A masterpiece of cinema and the greatest horror movie ever made.
Could you believe that this film was nominated for two golden raspberry awards? I'm not even kidding, it was. one for worst director (Stanley Kubrick) and the other for worst actress (Shelly Duvall). but we can agree that shelly wasn't that good of a performance in the movie because kubrick was so displeased with duvall on set that he immediately terrorized her and mistreated her to get the acting right. shelly being so stressed that some of her hair fell out.

I'm getting a little sidetracked here. so yes the shinning received mixed critical response for not being a conventional horror film and was nominated for two razzies.

But don't worry. when it was released on VHS critics immediately re-assessed it. even Roger Ebert saying it is one of the greatest horror films ever made, calling it "strangely disturbing".
I wish Stanley Kubrick didn't exclude the hedge animals from the book. In the book, there were 7 hedges that looked like animals and they came to life. They're not in the movie. I think they should have had this one scene where after danny runs outside from jack, he runs into the hedges that come to life, danny then closes his eyes hoping for them to go away just like he did with the twin girls. Then when he opens them the hedges are covered in blood, guts, and body parts which frightens danny. Now that would've been creative and scary.

52Pirates of the Caribbean
The Original, In this list it gets my vote.
Pirates of the caribbean 4 'On stranger shores' is deffinately going to be a trip to the cinema. Penlope and Depp together again.


Amazing and funny
And johny depp is the perfect captain jack


Hey I Love Pirates of the Caribbean's dead mans chest and I also think JACK and WILL Are top Hot hot hot hotties In the world.


[Newest]Its entertaining... you will never get bored even if you watch 5 times back to back

53Sunset Boulevard
It won two, academy awards and won for best writing, so that already gives you an idea of how good the story-line would be. It is a timeless classic and is interesting to watch, you could learn a thing or two from this movie!
You can really learn a lesson from this movie. The greatest classical movie of all time, it has a great blend of Drama and Film Noir, which is very mysterious and I like that!
It is an amazing journey through the Drama genre and has a very interesting plot

If you can name a "classic" movie more quotable than this... Here's looking at you kid.
Come on you young people... Get some culture! I seen this movie when I was twenty, and no I am not that old. I seen it at a Film Festival. It has intrigue, humour, great acting and it's a fantastic story. Please take the time and watch it! Then you will understand it should be in the TOP TEN (at least, if not Number 1).
I can't believe movies like troy, gladiator, the matrix, and the count of monte cristo are in a list of greatest movies of all time. Shame on these voters who are clearly not movie fans and haven't seen even the top 1 percent of the best films ever made!
[Newest]Ignorance is bliss. Top 3 all day

55Apocalypse Now
NO other movie compares to this experience! You are drawn in and become a member of the boats crew on a psychological journey of vast and hellish proportions. You are in the minds of Captain Willard and Colonel Kurtz. You will KNOW insanity. Too many scenes to list are forever burned into memory: Surfing to "Satisfaction", Napalm in the morning, "The Ride of the Valkyries" attack, the Do Long Bridge trip, the Water Buffalo's "End", music from The Doors, members of the Grateful Dead, all based on Joseph Conrad's masterpiece "Heart of Darkness. " See this before you die!


I know that if I am going to watch this film I will need to be without interruption. This film engrosses me every time I watch it. Coppola was blessed with a gift for movie making. I would also add the documentary, 'Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse'. Just as engrossing and dramatic.


Top 10 because of the intense and powerful acting and harrowing story line... almost sickening...
[Newest]No way this is this low. One of the most deep experiences I have ever had in a movie, with some of the most memorable scenes ever.

56The Breakfast Club
This is my all-time favorite movie. It was in a way the beginning of the high school movie genre. It shows five very different students, united over the same cause; a terrible principal. The letter they gave him will be one of the greatest letters. Ever. It has its funny parts, its dramatic parts and too much to list.
I love this movie it tells the truth about how teenagers are seprated in high school.. in their own groups. How the friends from Jr. High just left you? and you all got your new friends...


FANTASTIC movie! Judd Nelson and Molly RIngwald's little relationship that started to form was the most adorable thing ever. When she gave him the earring that he was slamming earlier and he puts it in... GENIUS. I really wish that there were a sequel!
[Newest]My favorite movie about high school

57American History X
It has Edward Norton plus a good look at white supremacy and is just such a great movie. I'm at a loss for words why it is #32.


Greatest movie ever made... I'm in SHOCK this is not number ONE, much less, even on the list! The world would be a better place if everyone would watch this and understand that everyone is a human being just like you...
That film is a powerful indie film for sure! Almost perfect in my opinion in the way that the matter was discussed! The cast was fabulous, Genius Edward Norton leading and a group of youngsters: Fairuza Balk, Edward Furlong playing the most important, hard and scary parts in their Young lives and probably roles that many great and popular names would have turned down not to have it affect their reps.

An Outstanding effort.
[Newest]An excellent movie with a good message that let you thinking

Absolutely fantastic film, I was thinking about it for days after I first saw it. It will never get into the top ten, being 345th now, but it should.
Awesome film, I bet you, you will never find the screenplay like this. The editing is great. One must have to saw the film at least two times to understand it. Credits goes to CHRISTOPHER NOLAN...
Absolutely one of the best movies I've ever seen. First time I watched it didn't knew what the F... Happened... So I watched it again and realized that the movie is just plain perfection!
[Newest]Christopher Nolan just doesn't know how to make a bad movie

59Dumb and Dumber
Haha oh my god. If it makes you laugh uncontrollably you know its a good comedy.
Dumb is a reference to the actors - dumber is a reference to the people who paid to see this garbage. Toilet humor - the lowest for of comedy.
This should be way higher. GREATEST COMEDY MOVIE OF ALL TIME! Monty Python and the Holy Grail is way too overrated. It is definitely funny with some parts here and there that make you laugh. True. But if you want a movie in which you want to laugh throughout the entire movie then it's Dumb and Dumber for sure. Every single scene has something for you to laugh about. It's pure slapstick at it's best from the beginning to the end. Definitely should be at least in the top 50's.
Dumb and Dumber better than Holy Grail? Now that's just dumberer


funniest movie ive ever seen!!! i usually dont like comedies, but you gotta love this one!!!
[Newest]The Funniest movie I ever watched! I don't understand why is 61, at least 20, 10 or even 1!

60The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
If I went to the Movies I'll want to see that movie over and over again


I saw it on my sister's birthday I love it


I read the book before watching the film and I found this film incredibly accurate to the book, and then they break the good with bringing extra pointless things
[Newest]Impressive. not only for special effects, but for story telling also


618 Mile
The fact its not on here already is a fail... its the best most awesome movie ever


8 mile is the only movie that I could see more than 10 times and not get tired of it, the rap battles were epic and it had good acting
I love this movie, it's so real and great! For me it's the best movie ever! Can't wait to watch it again
[Newest]Well the most penetrating movie of all time. Just see this movie and listen to Eminem's song "Lose Yourself" It will surely bring chills of your spine.

62Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Reading book didn't know Ron could drive?


Books are better than the movie series.


63It's a Wonderful Life
A timeless classic to be adored by all. "You want me to lasso the moon? ". A great romance and a heart warming movie for all!
This was a wonderful film with some of the best acting ever. How can films in the calibre of Dumb and Dumber be higher than this? In these ratings
It's a wonderful life is great. I don't even like the idea of having it in color. It's THE BEST in B&W!
[Newest]Watching this movie is one of my Christmas traditions.

64Reservoir Dogs
Brutal, clever, well plotted, loud, action packed. One of the only movies that truly got me to like the bad guys.
Really? 300? Jurassic park? Grown ups?!?
Each character was brilliantly different. Perfect dark humour and one of the best movie climaxes!
[Newest]This is the first film of tarantino but it's the last film by 70's style!

65The Usual Suspects
The amazing style of director Bryan Singer is definitely shown in his debut film, which has so much style and full of twists.
This should aso be voted for 'The Best Line In A Movie Ever'. Kevin Spacey says, ' The devil is so evil, he has convinced the world he doesn't exist' GENIUS is all I can say!
I just saw this film and it's amazing! Really good, well made and the acting is awesome. Kevin Spacey is amazing in this flick. his character is great. Just... great.


[Newest]Best film ever. it amazes me that rubbish like 8 Mile got anywhere near a best ever list, let alone above some greats like The Usual Suspects.


66Iron Man 3
This does not deserve to be on the list. It's probably the biggest let down since the lightning thief. How does it make sense that the mandarin is an overweight Australian actor for no reason.
It was a mind blowing movie with amazing action
Should definitely deserve a top spot...
Best movie ever amazing action best story I was watch this movie more then 10. times I love this movie
[Newest]This movie is bad!

67Home Alone
One of the funniest movies of all time, and it is very original. The funniest parts are when the robbers are in the house
A Christmas classic. I love how the burglars, Harry and Marv, are constantly outsmarted by a kid. It's sad yet funny at the same time.
I like this movie like no other.


[Newest]I like it, but the sequel was better.

68The Big Lebowski
More than just a stoner comedy, the Coen brothers were at their best with this film. Each viewing has revealed more and its honestly gotten funnier over time. I watch it at least once a month and cannot begin to describe how good it is. Hell, it even spawned its own religion!


Classic Coen Brothers film. Amazing dialogue and interweaving plots. Cult Classic.
how is this so low? it should be up there with the greats


[Newest]Best film ever
whats wrong here

69Captain Hima
tamer hosny and zeina are the best couple in the world so captain hima has to be the best movie


70The Blues Brothers
It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
¨We're on a Mission From God¨ I love this movie :D
One of the best movies ever made

71The Notebook
Absolutely the most perfect romantic movie :) Makes me tear up every time!
Oh dear. I cried every minute of watching this, and then for like, 3 days after :'). The plot is immense! I urge you to watch this!


[Newest]Perfect movie. most romantic

72Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Such a fun plot that is uplifting and funny. it is such a good movie! I could watch it over and over again for the rest of my life.
Awesome, Hilarious and shows you how to get out of school
A must see


I can't believe this movie isn't higher on the list. This movie taught me how to skip school.


73City Lights
The most extraordinarily brilliant Comedy of all time. It paved the way for some movies that are higher than this! Which I can't believe!
Charlie Chaplin really does know how to entertain people with his funny charades and his amazing talent!
Charlie Chaplin is one of the greatest comedians of all time and this is his best movie that's for sure!
[Newest]Spectacular como todo lo de chaplin.

74American Beauty
one of the best screenplays of all time.Superb acting by Kevin Spacy it hits you with every emotion sadness,suspense,lauughter,etc....this is a masterpiece!
it makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you think- it is made up of all the things an amazing movie has to be.
this movie was so well done in everyway possible. directing acting. absolutely should make the top ten
[Newest]Whoever wrote this screenplay is a God who walks among us

The original, in so many ways.
Incredible story, Marvellous acting. A true masterpiece by one of the best director's of all time.
Need I say more?
This movie proves that you don't need high budgets to make great movies.
[Newest]Twilight is above this? What

76Despicable Me
The best movie ever and the minions are so damn cute. This movie is just amazing just because of the adorable minions. I wais I could be a minion because they are extremely cuddly and adorable and their voices are really cute


77Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Awesome! Should be number 1
Some people are crazy thinking twilight is better
Oh hell no Twilight is not better than HP! Brokeback Mountain? The Dark Knight? THE PATRIOT? SCARFACE?! Its Harry Potter! Hello? The highest grossing film franchise ever! Twilight's plot, cast, and presentation are all a disgrace. TEAM POTTER!
The movie is great! It's not nearly as good as the books, however, it's up near the top of recent fantasy movies. Well worth the watch, people!
[Newest]This was the worst Harry Potter movie. And I am a huge Harry Potter fan.

78Monsters, Inc.
My favorite childhood movie.
A pretty good movie with an original plot. I watched it many Times when I was a kid
I actually enjoyed this

79Pirates of the Caribbean- Dead Man's Chest
Jonny depp did his part so well that you would think he is not acting
Love it for Johnny Depp's performance, for the beautiful soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, and for the scurvy pirates!
All 3 are the BEST MOVIES EVER and should be #1! Awesome (and HOT! ) actors and actresses too!
[Newest]This one should be in the top 10 people!

80Taxi Driver
Best movie of all time and deserves to be in the top 100 because Robert De Niro is a mad actor! This movie is a masterpiece of Martin Scoresese the greatest director of all time! Because of him we have classics like, The Departed, Shutter Island, GoodFellas and Raging Bull!
The most amazing film of the 70's along with the Godfather and the first Star Wars!
The unstable Vietnam war vet who saved a little girl from being a prostitute
[Newest]Why is this film in 80th. It is simply the greatest movie of all time. A gratifying vigilante tale that delves into man's darkest thoughts. This film is the best of the best and is completely necessary toward the evolution of filmmaking.

The movie, story, soundtrack, animation and comedy is awesome! It got nominated 4 BEST ANIMATED AS WELL AS BEST MOVIE in the OSCARS!
This movie is amazing! Great choices for voice acting, and a phenomenal storyline!
Cool story and the ending makes me cry a lot. It's very realistic and teaches many valuable lessons in life.

This list wrong, I agree that The Godfather is number 1 but this movie should be at least 8! This is like the beginning of Sci-Fi Horror movies and is so good! Love the Alien movies, more than Predator!
When it comes to being the master film of Sci Fi Horror, Alien takes out that championship. Slow building suspense pays off as the crew of the Nostromo bring the unwanted and unlucky company of an extraterrestrial abroad their ship. Without any artillery they use other tactics to try and survive. This film is full of so much despair that even though the ending was satisfying it still makes you feel like there is no hope. Academy award winning excellence, behind a stellar cast.
A mind blowing adventure, through space, and kind of adds that terrifying element to space travel and extra terrestrial beings!
[Newest]Great and Original Film!

83Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Now who in their right mind wouldn't put Anchorman in the top ten! I think this is one of Will Ferrell's top performances. You need to watch it, insanely funny all throughout, especially the gang fight scene. WATCH IT NOW!
the best comedy ever!

"You're so wise. You're like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair. "
sky rockets in flight afternoon delight stay classy san diego and my personal favorite that how i roll
[Newest]I AM IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION! Was what I said seeing this movie at 82.

84Inglourious Basterds
It should still move up...
Oh my God this is my favorite movie of all time! Mr. Tarantino is an exceptional director. The villian, Hans Landa (played by Christoph Waltz) is just so infectious, you can't help but take his side every now and then. And Shosanna is such a badass! Watch this movie, you want regret it! (=
I was stunned by how entertaining this movie was, I never laughed and got shocked at the same time so much before! Well I love this movie.
[Newest]I can watch it over and over and never get bored, the best movie

85Remember the Titans
Remember this movie, because it is a perfect example of helping out each other and excluding racism and bigotry!
Denzel Washington is demanding in his role, and it is so inspiring and it teaches you to never give up, no matter what people tell you!
This is the greatest movie of all time. The message of unity and companionship is evident and therefore I recommend it for all as it will continue to push boundaries whilst showing that we as a world are all equal.
[Newest]Great movie, great story!

8621 Jump Street
Pinata for the win! Love this movie
This is the best comedy action movie ever. At least it should be at 50s

87The Hangover
Oh... Come on... This shouldn't be at this place... I think this is one of the movie which have greatest COMEDY..
Yeah.. Comedy.. Action.. Mystery.. Its should top 10
THE HANGOVER is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen in my lifetime!
[Newest]The funniest movie ever. Zach Galifianakis is hilarious!

88Grown Ups
This movie is so hilarious, funny and fresh. I love watching this movie.
One of the funniest Movie I've ever seen
It makes you feel so good, to all men around the World, Watch it, it's marvelous!

89The Princess Bride
This is without a doubt the best movie of all the time. Disagreeing would be inconceivable. The word "best", well, clearly that word does not mean what you think it means if you don't vote for this movie.
Why don't more people know about this movie! Maybe it's too witty - there are so many cultural and historical references in the midst of the comedy that it has to be seen multiple times to truly appreciate.
It baffles me that this movie is so low on the list. While a little formulaic, this movie is extremely polished and has something for everyone.

90Finding Nemo
hehehe such a cute film =D "fish are friends, not food!"


In 20 years this movie will be a CLASSIC, love this movie
My 2nd favorite Pixar movie


[Newest]Also the best selling DVD of all time

91Stand By Me
This is my all time favorite movie. Now, maybe I just love it because I can relate to the kids, because I am close to their age, but this movie is my favorite and I always wish I could go on a journey like that with my friends. Anyone will enjoy!
River Phoenix is astoundingly talented and gorgeous in this's a wonderful, poignant, coming of age story that is honest and brilliantly acted.
Definitely on my top 10 list. Not a fan of Stephen Kings novels but 2 of his shorter works, this (based on "the Body') and Shawshank are on my top 10 movie list.

Fabulous. A much better movie than Alexander, but unfortunately not as appreciated as it should have been because not enough people know what it comes from or is about.
Incredible movie, especially for those who are interested in Ancient History.
This movie kicks more ass than any of those dumb movies in the top ten


[Newest]Movie of the history

I really do adore this film and Sean Astin was good in it! This is a great adventure for everyone to enjoy. It is also a very funny movie as well!
I Agree, The Goonies is like on of the funniest movies and that should be at a movie at Comedy Central because it's that funny. Chunk is my favourite character and he's the funniest character in the Goonies.
i adore this film!! i havent seen it in years, im gonna have to buy/download it its such a good film


[Newest]I watched this movie so many times it is so addicting it needs to be higher

94A Beautiful Mind
Really inspiring to say the least a true story
And must watch movie by everyone should be in top 10
Oscar winner
One of the greatest Performances I've ever seen! Can't believe this is ranked 64! Do yourself a favor people and watch this movie!
Simply the best. It has to be on top 10 list.
My opinion - number 1
Guess you people don't speak movies after all.
My list would be -
1. A Beautiful mind
2-4. Shawshank Redemption, Inception, Requiem for a dream.
[Newest]Amazing performance by Russel Crowe

95The Butterfly Effect
this film makes me cry... its so sad at the end =( but its a brilliant film


Similar to Donnie Darko and other films about the path of our pre-motivated life.
Questions whether or not fate is real. Watch this!
My favorit movie :')

96The Simpsons Movie
haha i saw this film and i laughed so hard i cried. if you havent seen it yet, you must its brilliant "spider pig, spider pig, does what ever a spider pig does, cant he spin, from a web, no he can't, he's a pig, look out, he is a spider pig" LEGEND!!!


This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I haven't watched the Simpsons that much but I really love this movie. it's one entertaining movie that's for sure. with every constant joke that works thrown at you. this is probably a movie that I'll be watching over and over again and never get tired of.
How can you forget the ultimate Spider Pig himself! Homer made this movie into a funny piece!

97Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
It's one of the few movies I would call absolutely perfect. No flaws, and nothing I don't like about it. It has my favorite score, relatable characters, and it manages to blend reality and dreams incredibly well. It's an amazing movie and it is my favorite movie of all time.
Although it takes a couple times before making sense, it's truly a masterpiece. Kate Winslet is great as Clementine, and Jim Carrey is awesome as Joel. With an all-star cast including Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Kirsten Dunst, and David Cross, this movie is a cinema legend.
The best film of the last thirty years! Best story, best direction, best cinematography and of course, best screenplay.


I've seen a lot of great movies, some that are near the top of this list, but this movie tops them all. I was speechless upon seeing this Christopher Nolan masterpiece and it definitely cannot be topped by any movies to come in the future (well, maybe, if it's directed by Christopher Nolan, of course). This will forever be my all-time favorite movie.
Best movie I ever seen.
It's shows us the meaning of mankind.
Nolan really did his magic this time.
Great great great direction.
Sound and visual effects are perfect.
Great performance by Anna Hathaway.
The movie name indicates the position of the movie, INTERSTELLAR.
This movie will shine among the stars forever.
Great plot, great acting, great visuals, great soundtrack, great twist... Well, you get the point. It's a great movie.
[Newest]This should be at number 1 seriously!

99Lawrence of Arabia
Probably the greatest movie ever. It's deep, thought-provoking and also has great action and many funny moments. Peter O'toole's performance is masterful and Alec Guinness, Omar Shariff and Anthony Quinn all contribute a lot. It has the greatest music score and epic visuals of the desert and in the battles. Really if you haven't seen this you need to
A great adventure that is over 3 hours long. It is also a true story, that you can enjoy. Peter O Toole and Alec Guinness are great actors!
This is the greatest Picture of all time. Peter O Toole was amazing in this movie and it won 7 Academy Awards including best picture!
[Newest]Currently #97. I think it should be required viewing before anyone votes on a list such as this.

100The Sound of Music
This movie had more heart than any movie ever! Glorious actors wonderful music and riveting storyline.A Masterpiece on all levels.
A classic musical, when you see it, you'll never forget about it, you'll love to watch it over and over and over. Love it


Classic. Wholesome movie for families. Best Musical of all time

Could watch it over ^^ over!
