21Harry 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.

Apocalypse Now is lower than this crap? I can not believe it

22Braveheart

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.

In the end this movie was very emotional - zxm

23Schindler'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!

Can't believe this is not in top ten. Ridiculous.

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. - celebfan3000

Sorry not wring was wrong

25Jurassic 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.

If you can make a movie about dinosaurs that awesome and believable then you deserve to be number one - lopedogg55

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.

How is it so far down on this list?!

26The 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

It's a great movie, but not as much appreciated as its Legendary Predecessor

Best story telling ever. Great follow up to the Godfather, except better.

27Toy Story

I watch this every year of my life - jakeocchipinti

All toy story movies are fantastic

I love this movie it's the best Disney film to date no one does a child targeted movie but make it fantastic like Pixar does while movies like boyhood get praised for stupid things like showing what it's like growing up this movie shows what your imagination can do and that's how the movie was created

Worst animated movie

28Rocky

YO ADRIAN!

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

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. - Arfurr

This movie is amazing and has amazing characters - Ajkloth

29Apocalypse 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. - mgenet

I am relatively new to movies in general due to my age. I love them and I have seen many more movies than the average adult has. But compared to some film buffs; and I mean real film buffs ( no not you ), ones who would never dwell on such a site as toptens or even particularly care about your mediocre opinions on movies(sorry). I am nothing. That said I have seen the basics and know bad from good. I believe a film is rated on the feelings it gives you, and sure something like The Dark Knight has been filmed well and has good acting. But I felt nothing it was superficial and bland and left my feelings dim and cold. Apocalypse now on the other hand did not need to be analysed to be good like so many other films. Instead you just sit in awe. It is beautiful and no movie ever (and that is including the majority of this toilet of a list) has ever made me feel the way it did.

Harry Potter over this?

30Avatar

James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!

James Cameron has done it again - marytran1645

Visual effects, Great Storyline & massive Gross Revenue, what more could you want!

This is an amazing movie! For some reason, my mum and my best friend both hate it. My dad was the one who introduced me to it. Definitely me favourite science fiction movie. - birdechosplash

31The Dark Knight Rises

Clearly the best of all time, get this one up in the top ten
There's not even an argument... BANE

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! - $DP$

Dark Knight was better. Sorry Bane, Heath Ledger took the show - trazel

Worst movie ever

32Gone 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 the greatest movie & book ever made because it really depicts a greater understanding of the time during the Civil War and everything else rolled up into one!! It's captivating and thrilling for the soul!! My favorite of all time!!

The best movie ever made. In color in 1939.

33Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Why is this movie NOT in the top ten? This is one of my favorite movies ever! - spacepirate33

How could could this movie not be in the top ten it is way better then the other movies ahead of it this is the greatest movie series in the world!

The greatest movie of all time in my opinion! EMPIRE magazine named this the second greatest movie of all time. Harrison Ford impresses!

As an Indiana jones fan this should be higher

34The 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.

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

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!?

Actually it is the 7 best 9 nominations should be in the top 10

35Star 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. - jamie

Best of the prequels, but doesn't really need to be higher than films like Jaws, Rocky, Toy Story, and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. This movie was good, and answered many questions I had about the saga. However, I feel there are better films and that this should be lower than 31. - TheWiseOne

One of the best films in all the land. Yummy yummy bud

The best Star Wars I love it its amazing it's so amazing and the scene (spoiler alert) where Anakin turns into Darth Vader is amazing

36One 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 - heresjohnny

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.

Number 34? That's what gets a movie so well acted and directed? I'm really disappointed. I watched this movie after The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather. But the minute I finished watching this masterpiece, I declared it the best movie of all time.

37A 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?

I hate this film, but I do I love the parody the simpsons made!

38Toy 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 - sidney

39The 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.

Disturbing insight into the mind of a cannibal1 Anthony Hopkins gives the greatest performance on screen and Jodie Foster the same!

Best movie I have ever seen.

40Star 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.

Favorite Star Wars movie
