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
The best film ever

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
Forrest Gump was awesome!

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.
Just simply the best...

Awesome movie! All of them are very good! I also love the books!

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
WHY IS THIS NOT number 1?
Anyway the dark knight is truly my all time favourite and truly the best superhero adaptation ever made I also am a big batman fan since I have loved him since I was 4 I collect the comics, play the games, watch the movies. But put aside my opinion dark knight is also very popular in todays media a defiant movie to go and watch now this movie proved that superhero's are just cheesy men dressed up in colourful costumes!

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...
Titanic is the best movie of all time. No questions asked. This is my story Okay so it was like January 3rd or 4th maybe and I was hanging out with my boyfriend and my friend basically everyone knows my titanic rule that I don't watch it with anyone and after like a month of trying to persuade me they convinced me to watch it with them. Okay so we always watch movies in my basement so I bring the DVD downstairs and put it in the DVD player and I started screaming that I didn't want to watch it to stop the movie I didn't want to see it before the movie even started it was literally the paramount logo. So after a little bit of crying I finally calm down and I'm doing okay until it gets to the "I'm flying scene" and I started bawling I was trying SO hard not to cry but I couldn't help it. Then I put the second DVD in and there was some crying throughout the whole second DVD more intense than the "I'm flying" scene tears but nothing to major. Then the closer we got to Jacks death the worse it got it started getting hard for me to breath and stuff I was crying so hard. Then it happened Jack died and I freaked out I had this terrible panic attack and so the two people I was with tried to calm me down and I literally screamed don't TOUCH ME and stood up and threw myself on the ground I was scream crying while having a panic attack and all I remember is I couldn't feel my body but my face was all tingly and I sat there on the ground until the end of the movie sobbing. Then my heart will go on comes on and I start screaming about loving the movie so much that I hated it (there's a video of this somewhere but I don't know who has it it's on my old phone) and then I literally didn't talk until like a half hour after the movie. And I was really upset the whole night and would cry at random times. That's the last time my parents let me watch titanic. (This doesn't even do justice to how bad it actually was to be honest)

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.
It's very unusual, and all Tarantino moves is bad copy of it, and even those moves are great too

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...
I like the revenge of the sith more

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.
I have watched this movie a million times. every time I see something new in it.

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
Great storyline and some quotes I will remember forever

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?
The matrix change every thing, sadly things changed back

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.

13Requiem 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
The most disturbing, depressing and powerful movie ever made! Easily in the top 10 of all time. beats Titanic by a long shot, the avengers is overrated and shouldn't even be on this list.

14Saving Private Ryan
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.


Best war movie I have ever seen,

15Star 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!

16Harry 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.

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!
Regardless of the fact that it's animated and made for kids, it is still great. You are lying if you say you don't like this movie. LYING!

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!
This movie is one of the most important movies ever it gave us a realistic of the holocaust and what happened and it shows that one man can do a lot for people schindler took all of his money just to buy as many Jews as possible oskar schindler is one of the greatist heros of all time

20Back 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.
Back to the Future is the best movie ever. How is it at 20?

21Marvel'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...

22Citizen 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.
This list... it just made me cry. The only movie that actually belonged at the top ten, Godfather, is sadly at number 1. No Vertigo, no Oz, no Fantasia or Snow White, no 2001: a space odyssey, no Dr. Strangelove, no Schindler's List, not even Raging Bull.

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.

24Terminator 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.


Ahead of the time sfx, great acting, perfect plotting, incredible intense moments and action and of course, an incredible memorable villain which Robert Patrick won an award at the MTV movie awards for best villain, this is by far an incredible sci-fi/action film to be thought about for a long time.

26Jurassic 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


This movie revolutionized CGI. Excellent effects, wonderful score, and unforgettable actors, this movie is for anyone who believes or is a fan of dinosaurs. (By the way, my favorite dino is the velociraptor. )

28The 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
This and the first one should be in the top 10!

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?

32Star 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.

33The 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

34Gone 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!
The movie won 8 Oscars! That needs no explaining as to why it is one of the best.

38One 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.
I love all crazy man in this masterpiece

392001: A Space Odyssey
A true masterpiece. Seeing this movie for the first time is a unbelievable experience.


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.


This film changed the way I looked at movies. A very slow film with little attention grabbers. But the more I revisit it, the more I love it.

41Star 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.

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

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

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.
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 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.

50Monty 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!
Such a great movie the more you watch it the funnier it gets. Every scene is epically funny.
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
This was such a funny movie, why isn't this higher

51The 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.
The most epic and entertaining Frank Daranbont film besides The Shawshank Redemption!

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).
What can I say that hasn't been said already? Magnificent script, magnificent environment, magnificent plot, and Humphrey Bogart. God, I love that guy. This is the film for the realist. People don't change, and sometimes things just don't happen the way you'd like them to. I can't talk about the plot without describing the entire film, so I'll just say this:
Rick Blaine owns a cafe in World War II Casablanca. One day, a woman comes in who just happens to have been a lover of Rick's years ago whom left him without saying a word. And what's more, she has a man with her. That's just fate.
"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."
So fantastic in every way. It may be a little overrated, but it should still be in top 25 at least

53It'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!

54The 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

55Sunset 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

56The 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

57The 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!
My favorite movie about high school


More comments about The Breakfast Club

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!

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!


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...

63American 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.

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

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.
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.

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!

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!

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.

Remember this movie, because it is a perfect example of helping out each other and excluding racism and bigotry!

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.

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!
