Best Movies of All Time


The Top TenXW

1The 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

I wished that Al Pacino could shy away from The Godfather. I have watched Jack & Jill with Adam Sandler and Al Pacino. - playstationfan66

I love this movie I liked the godfather part 1 and 2 but 3 sucks ass I'm 9 but I don't if this movie is old

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

Amazing movie. I definitely think this is #1

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.

I can watch this masterpiece of a film over and over and never tote of it. It shows humanity at its best and worst and ultimately the best triumphs. Best acting I've ever seen

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

Yeah the best movie ever, Best Cinematograph, sound effects and characters...

6Pulp 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.

Gayest movie on earth.

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...

This Movie RULES! The Animated Titanic Movies DROOL! - Ededdneddyfan55

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...

This deserves to be in the rankings of best movies.

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.

Went to the movies to see this. Oddly enough an ex girlfriend drug me to it. Was expecting another pretty boy fighting movie. Turned out to be a bone crushing, meat grinding movie, with an incredibly fresh, intelligent storyline. Incredible movie!

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.

11Saving 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. - Razor79

This one is amazing for me it is tied with the usual suspects

12The 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?

Wouldn't consider it great, but it sure has the most interesting plot and the best special effects

13Star 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!

This movie should be number 1 on this list! Star Wars is the best!

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..

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.

This is not the best Harry Potter movie, much less the best movie ever - JaneMoffat

15Marvel'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...

Deserves to be in the top 10

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

Best fight scenes of any movie ever made.

17The 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.

Come on. Let's at least get this one into the top ten. It is one of the greatest American classics of all time!

19Back 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 ") - hawkcatcher04

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.

The fact that Harry potter is above is clearly means more people need to learn what a good movie is

20Citizen 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.

The best movie ever
