41 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring The 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!?

AHEM! THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING! So good for a 3 hour movie...stayed up till midnight crying and watching it

42 The Shining The Shining

From Stanley THE MAN, the Shining is one his best movies. So dark, troubling, and haunting that it bothers you for years after you see it... A masterpiece of cinema and the greatest horror movie ever made.

Could you believe that this film was nominated for two golden raspberry awards? I'm not even kidding, it was. one for worst director (Stanley Kubrick) and the other for worst actress (Shelly Duvall). but we can agree that shelly wasn't that good of a performance in the movie because kubrick was so displeased with duvall on set that he immediately terrorized her and mistreated her to get the acting right. shelly being so stressed that some of her hair fell out.

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

But don't worry. when it was released on VHS critics immediately re-assessed it. even Roger Ebert saying it is one of the greatest horror films ever made, calling it "strangely disturbing".

I wish Stanley Kubrick didn't exclude the hedge animals from the book. In the book, there were 7 hedges that looked like animals and they came to life. They're not in the movie. I think they should have had this one scene where after danny runs outside from jack, he runs into the hedges that come to life, danny then closes his eyes hoping for them to go away just like he did with the twin girls. Then when he opens them the hedges are covered in blood, guts, and body parts which frightens danny. Now that would've been creative and scary.

Its not very scary,but the story of this movie was quite good,especially at the ending photo flipped my mind - zxm

43 The Breakfast Club The 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!

Amazing, relatable, genius. No other words.

44 The Green Mile The Green Mile

Great movie, it has a mix of different genre's. Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Drama, elements of Horror and it is a memorable movie that is an amazing achievement!

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This movies covers a great variety of genus. It's funny, make believe, lots of drama, passionate, tender, yet filled with criminal actions. Excellent movie, it will be hard to beat it.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! Some scenes are scary some funny and also some really sad. This movie combines the best of every genre of movie and moulds it together to make a brilliant film. Tom Hanks Plays a brilliant role (as he always does) which makes the film much more enjoyable. the whole cast were brilliant. this is the perfect film! No other film can come close. If you have a spare three hours in your life just check this film out.

My most favorite movie of all time,this should be at number one (for me),this movie is more than a movie,this movie represented greatly the novel The Green Mile,with all the interesting characters and accompany of best actors,including the legendary actor Tom Hanks,this movie had a great mystery told in the end,and this movie defined life greatly,one word "MASTERPIECE" - zxm

45 Monty Python and the Holy Grail Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Come on people vote for the Holy Grail and keep it above that awful crap twilight. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

This movie is a classic! It is such a funny movie. The acting in it is superb and the plot and script are well put together. The budget for this was so low at the time, this makes it even more astounding to see what the production team have done with the movie to give it such a good result. Come on people, get this movie further up the list! R

Such a great movie the more you watch it the funnier it gets. Every scene is epically funny.

"I thought we were an autonomous collective." BEST line EVER.

46 Jaws Jaws

Honestly one of the greatest and possibly the most timeless movie of all time! It kept people out of the water and it still scares people this very day! This was #5 on Empire Magazine 500 Greatest movies of all time!

This is within the top 5 movies of all time. It has scared people all around the world and is one of the most respected Horror/Thrillers. How can you forget such memorable performances, quotes and exceptional special effects

The greatest thriller of all time! I am not kidding, this movie really did scare people and was the ultimate Aqua Horror!

I remember seeing this movie when it came out. Man it scared me...I still think twice about going into the ocean.

47 The Departed The 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

This is the best movie I've ever seen, Leo dicaprio and Matt Damon are amazing, and I don't even like them, add in Mark walhberg, Martin sheen and Alec Baldwin and you have the greatest movie ever made

48 The Princess Bride The Princess Bride

This is without a doubt the best movie of all the time. Disagreeing would be inconceivable. The word "best", well, clearly that word does not mean what you think it means if you don't vote for this movie.

Why don't more people know about this movie! Maybe it's too witty - there are so many cultural and historical references in the midst of the comedy that it has to be seen multiple times to truly appreciate.

It baffles me that this movie is so low on the list. While a little formulaic, this movie is extremely polished and has something for everyone.

A HILARIOUS cult classic that deserves a higher place on this list!

49 Casablanca Casablanca

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).

How can a movie named after one of the great lines from this movie be ranked at 62, while the real deal is at 78? The lines from this movie alone put it in the top ten! Play it again, Sam. We'll always have Paris. Of all the gin joints in the world, she has to walk into this one. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. And yes, round up the usual suspects! This movie has EVERYTHING, move it up!

Something ain't right with this list. must be an Xgener smoking a doobie

50 It's a Wonderful Life It'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!

No matter how many times you watch this film it pulls at your heart strings. When an angel gets its wings it always has me sobbing. Brilliant

51 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

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

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

ndisputibly one of the best 3 movies of all time - contested only by the other 2 in the series

One of the best movies ever in this world

52 Alien Alien

This list wrong, I agree that The Godfather is number 1 but this movie should be at least 8! This is like the beginning of Sci-Fi Horror movies and is so good! Love the Alien movies, more than Predator!

When it comes to being the master film of Sci Fi Horror, Alien takes out that championship. Slow building suspense pays off as the crew of the Nostromo bring the unwanted and unlucky company of an extraterrestrial abroad their ship. Without any artillery they use other tactics to try and survive. This film is full of so much despair that even though the ending was satisfying it still makes you feel like there is no hope. Academy award winning excellence, behind a stellar cast.

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

I like how the alien in this movie is literally almost invincible and there is no way to kill it. Also the movie didn't just find some bull weakness that could allow it to be killed. She "killed" it fair and square. Or for all we know it could still be out there. Floating around in deep space

53 Toy Story 3 Toy 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

Toy story 3 was my favorite Disney Pixar movie better and Andy from toy story he get all grown up

55 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly The 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

Great performances, great soundtrack and arguably the best western of all time. It would definitely be in my top 10.

56 12 Angry Men 12 Angry Men

In every single way, the most interesting film of all time! It should be in everyone's top ten movies of all time. On IMDb this is rated 8.9/10 and is number 6 on the greatest films of all time, at least it has recognition on that site, not like here!

This drama setting in a jury room is one of the powerful dramas every. Shows you how one man can help save a persons life. I never get tired of watching this movie.

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

No violence, bad words or sexy stuff, yet it's still one of the most tense and attention grabbing films of all time. - HashtagBrownies

57 The Big Lebowski The 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 - Assassin

The best movie I've ever seen on so many levels

58 Scarface Scarface

Al Pacino is iconic. The Cuban in the suit is a phenomenon. A very colorful and comical crime classic.

Scarface was revolutionary at the time. Al Pacino 4 Me THe Best Actor next To Marlon Brando. This Movie deserves Nr 1 damn sure - copkiller

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.

Now say good night, to the bad guy! - BeatlesFan1964

59 The Usual Suspects The Usual Suspects

The amazing style of director Bryan Singer is definitely shown in his debut film, which has so much style and full of twists.

This should aso be voted for 'The Best Line In A Movie Ever'. Kevin Spacey says, ' The devil is so evil, he has convinced the world he doesn't exist' GENIUS is all I can say!

I just saw this film and it's amazing! Really good, well made and the acting is awesome. Kevin Spacey is amazing in this flick. his character is great. Just... great.
