The Top Ten

1
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

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

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.

4The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

5The 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

6Titanic
I really love this movie! Because this movie proves me one thing that love can last forever!
Epic!
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...

7Fight 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.

8Star Wars 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...

9Pulp 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.

10The 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?

The Contenders

11Gladiator
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

12Inception
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. Movie rating is always not a factor, but seriously this movie awesome.
I have watched it many times still the feeling of this movie is same.

15Star Wars
The sci fi classic that paved the way for a lot of action classics and also launched the greatest franchise in history.
STAR WARS... I mean, I really don't need to say anything else. Oh and also HAN SHOT FIRST!
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!

16Braveheart
I love this movie, definitely my favorite movie of all time, better than Gladiator at least.
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.
The best movie I had ever seen. Mel Gibson has the spirit, I how he does his job.

17Harry 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..
Oh please! This movie here? I really expected it on at least top 3. A good movie, could have been made better, as expectations were running very high from die hard potter fans like me.

18The Lion King
BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER MADE! MOVIES NOWADAYS HAVE NOTHING ON THIS TIMELESS CLASSIC. PEOPLE WILL BE WELL INTO THEIR ADULT LIVES AND STILL WATCHING AND ENJOYING THE MOVIE WITH THEIR KIDS.
My all time favorite movie. I could live forever with only this to watch.

19Schindler'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!

20Marvel's The Avengers
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...
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.
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...

24Citizen 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
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.
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.

26A 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?

27Terminator 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.

28Star 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.

One of the best films in all the land. Yummy yummy bud
BEST FILM ON THIS EARTH! So much action, the plot arc fianlly comes together and the most lightsaber duels throughout Star wars. Empire is a fantastic Star Wars, but just overrated.

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!

32Jurassic 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.
This movie ROCKS! It's not my favorite, but I just went with first one I could find. The visuals and the creation of the dinosaurs were outright amazing, great acting and script mixed with an epic theme and always suspenseful... It's not the best, but come on! It deserves much more than 34. I mean, Twilight ahead? I like dinos myself, so that helps why I nlike this movie, but easily the best thing about this is the director is Steven Spielburg. Come on! Thsi guy made Jaws, E.T. , and Saving Private Ryan! Vote for those or Jurassic Park. Jurassic Park changed movies forever. And that makes me

33The Departed
Martin Scorsese has perhaps directed his greatest film ever made! Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio give their best performance and no wonder why this movie won best picture of 2006!
The most intellectual insight, from two points of view, from an undercover in the Irish Mafia and another one inside the Boston State Police! Martin Scorsese directs a classic which brings a thrill and impresses all audiences!
Amazing movie. If you've seen it then you know it deserves better then 89

35Toy 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.

36The Godfather 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

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

382001: A Space Odyssey
A true masterpiece. Seeing this movie for the first time is a unbelievable experience.

miketm

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.
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.

39The 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!?

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.

Who needs 12 angry men in a stupid courtroom arguing like a bunch of slags from Big Brother, when you can when you can have 24 tributes from the 12 districts of Panam fighting to the death in an exotic outdoor arena?
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.

42One 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.
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.
all in all a very powerful film an american classic

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 its 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!

49The 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.
I have lost count of how many times I have seen this movie, I watch it every time its on, one of the best horrors ever made, with some of the best actors in it.
The setting alone, (if it were in real life), would be one of the most creepy places you would ever be in!, fantastic film.
57?! Put this at #1! A terrifying story based off of Steven King's Novel, The Shining is the greatest horror movie and MOVIE of all time. With a mixture of Jack's fantastic acting and Stanley's phenomenal directing skills, a masterpiece was created.

5012 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!
Definitely the greatest classic of all time. It is unique in its own way, and the acting was so incredible in this movie!
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.

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.

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

56Memento
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!

57The Notebook
Absolutely the most perfect romantic movie :) Makes me tear up every time!
I SWEAR I HAVE NEVER CRIED WATCHING ANY MOVIE BUT AFTER WATCHING THIS.. I JUST can't CONTROL MYSELF! OH DEAR you ALL MUST WATCH THIS MOVIE... "ITS A MOVIE OF LIFETIME"...
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!

58It'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!

59Apocalypse 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!

IgnoreThis

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...

Charlie Chaplin really does know how to entertain people with his funny charades and his amazing talent!

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 is one of the greatest comedians of all time and this is his best movie thats for sure!


63The 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...

kobebryant

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!

64Resevoir 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!

65American 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.

frillysunshine

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.

66Brokeback Mountain
The most tragic and beautiful love story in a long time. Heath Ledger's performance is heart wrenching and can only be deserving of the top spot. I cry every time I see it, granted it's not a rarity but I believe that a story this stunning needs to be told. And it wins every single time in my books
The very, very best movie ever being done.
Groundbreaking
Absolutely one of the best films ever made. There are no words that can describe what I feel to this film. One of the best films directed by and Lee. Simply great acting. For all the four main actors, it was one of their best roles in their carrier.

Sean of the Dead is in my book, the greatest zombie comedy out there. Hilarously funny, and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are great in this.
Why this isn't any higher, I have absolutely no idea. Hilarious and witty.

70The 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!

nayrbsnilloc

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

71Iron Man
Robert Downey Jr did not only put on an excellent performance, but he also gave birth to one of the biggest super hero franchises in history. This movie has amazing high tech gadgetry and sensational special effects. Amazing success and great performances.
Iron Man is an amazing movie. Not
just from the special effects but the outstanding acting from Robert Downey Jr. and comedy played.

Robert Downey just immerses himself into his role and plays his part so brilliantly! This is definitely a spectacle in the Action/Super Hero legacy that has been left on the film industry.

¨We're on a Mission From God¨ I love this movie :D
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.
One of the best movies ever made

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

johnnsync

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

76Psycho
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?
The masterpiece from Hitchcock, the master of suspense. Has changed the path of cinema in many ways.

77Remember 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!
The greatest sports movie of all time! The inspirational performances by this cast of actors, makes the film very heart warming!

78Inglourious Basterds
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! (=
It should still move up...
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.

79Alien
A mind blowing adventure, through space, and kind of adds that terrifying element to space travel and extra terrestrial beings!
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.

80The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Surely the greatest western ever made
Comedy, Action, Adventure, Drama, Thriller. It blends genre's and it is surely in the top ten movies of all time.
It is obviously the greatest Western of all time. It had some funny moments and the movie went for 3 hrs which makes it more entertaining

81Harry 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!

Way better than "despicable me"! What is this? It. Should at least be in the top 20! Best movie ever, together with the hunger games 1 and forrest gump!
Best movie I have ever seen! The second hunger games was so much better than the first
Best movie ever it should be one of the top 10

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.

The movie is between the two towers of the best trilogy ever made

The Two Towers is probably inside the top ten greatest movies of all time. The most amazing action sequences you can find and much more epic than other action films
ndisputibly one of the best 3 movies of all time - contested only by the other 2 in the series

86Usual 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 own this movie and I swear this is the ultamite movie next to the new Sherlock Holmes whitch may be my favorite movie ever along with iron man and the a-team.

My favorite childhood movie.

91Lawrence 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!

I just love STAR TREK and I always will. It has been an inspiration for many other science fiction films in the following years. Just incredible.
The casting for this remake was flawless, and although there were some problems, it was overall extremely exciting and fun to watch. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!
Best movie of all time. This blew my mind.

93Taxi 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! Cos 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!

This movie released in 2011.. One of my Favorite.. Poeple might say it is just a comedy.. But in my view it has lot more thing than that.. It says lot of philosophy.. It just has the comedy theme.. But it is the best movie all the time according to my view..
This is very likely to be my favourite film. Screw you if you voted something else, this is hilarious, moving, clever, and overall, brilliant.

100The 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.
This isn't the best movie?!?!
The word "best"... I do not think that word means what you think it means.
The fact that this movie isn't on the top of the list is inconceivable!
