The Top TenXW

1IndiaIndia, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Movies in India are of various languages and tell of different people. Hats off to he great directors like Satyajit Ray

Indian movies has great stories unlike Hollywood which just don't have any story..

Every film is good; no other film industry can provide such a diverse variety in theme as well as languages as Indian Film Industry. Their tickets is one of the cheapest, making the lower sections to enjoy it as well

All Indian movies are same

Hollywood has a variety but Indian films only have sex! Love stories

2United States of AmericaThe United States of America, or the U.S.A for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states. 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence in 1776 with more.

Perhaps not from a ratio standpoint - there's certainly a lot of crap that comes out of Hollywood - but as far as "the best" goes no other country even comes close. - dallinatkinson

Definitely America does a great job with films. I can mention plenty of quality movies that can beat any country at film making... Gladiator, the God Father, Inception, Interstellar, Titanic, Avatar, Jurassic World, Lord of the Rings, etc..

We dominate the movie industry on a global level you may see our movies in different countries but seldom do you see movies from different countries doing well in America

How can anything be higher than hollywood?

3United KingdomThe United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. The UK is well known for ancient and modern literature, its influence in world music, its historical more.

Oh really? Fifth? Where we have some of the most popular franchises in the world? James Bond? Harry Potter? Monty Python? All of various genres and various talents in the making of the films. I would definitely say that we have some of the best of the best of movies. - PositronWildhawk

There isn't really a 'British cinema' to the same extent as a 'French cinema' for instance, because the British film industry is so connected with Hollywood. British actors, directors, cinematographers etc. make films in America and Hollywood makes films in Britain. So although it's harder to make a case for a British national cinema, it's pretty clear that in terms of the level of filmmaking, the expertise of film crews etc. Britain is unrivalled outside Los Angeles

Most of stanley kubrick's films were shot in the United Kingdom so I guess that counts as a point for the country with the best movies.

Definitely the best...

Japanese movies are awesome. They have movies in almost all genres. From crazy to emotional. The movies have proper direction. I liked almost every Japanese movie that I have watched. And believe me, I have watched a lot.

As an indain, I praise Japanese movies most. They are the king of movies. Nobody can beat them even us also. Almost 70% of Hollywood movies are made in Japan. Remember that. Hollywood copies most of tthe Japanese movies and make them hit.

Japanese films seem to allow more freedom and creativeness follows. The character development in their films tends to go deeper.

Their films just feel unique...

Japan should be 2nd

5GermanyGermany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

I think German movies have better thoughtful stories with characters with more range. The characters in German movies seem to be many sided and not like black and white portraits in American movies.

As a japanese, I love german movies more than this Hollywood rubbish.

The best known German films are nosferatu and metropolis. Who knew Germans were so good at filmmaking? These films are definitely worth checking out. Trust me.

6IranIran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

I think Iranian movies are better than Indian movies! Indian movies are bluff! Don't believe me watch "a Separation" movie! You'll see the differences!

I can't believe that someone who understand the cinema put Iran in rank 9 far behind India and Canada and Germany

Iran and Italy deserve more: Rank 2 and 3

I watched some Iranian movies and I can say yeah, they're good at making movies

Special an desirable

7ItalyItaly, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe . Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2. With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the 3rd most populous EU member state . Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, more.

Country with dollars trilogy once upon a time in West cinema paradise bicycle thieves la dolce vita and many more the country of Leone morricone Fellini and many more must be number 2

The only bad movie to ever come out of Italy is animated version of the titanic where nobody dies at all!

Italy has gave us some good spaghetti western films. The best example is the good, the bad and the ugly staring clint eastwood.

Best romantic movies ever

8FranceFrance, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. more.

While I think that the US deserves to be at the top of the list, France is a very close second. Cinema was born there with the Lumiere brothers, and every since they have been making great films like the The Rules of the Game, The 400 Blows, and Amelie.

France produces some of the most genuinely artistic films in the world, though I do believe that it should be ranked below the United States.

How is Canada, Australia, Iran, Bangladesh, Italy, and Germany ahead of France. I mean I am sure there are great Italian and German Films, but ahead of French films.

I love French movies so much. I think France makes the best movies. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Country which makes worst movies

I kinda like Pakistani movies and drama serials but their need to be a little bit open minded like Indians.

I think the Pakistani films are the best due to they don't make negative films and made the film on a topic intellegentlly on lo cost and the more profit according to the investment

Now Pakistani are also making good movies

18AustraliaAustralia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands . Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry .

Australia has made outstanding films such as:
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Crocodile Dundee
Wolf Creek
Paper Planes
The Reef
Red Dog

I am Australian and have seen 410 movies yet I haven't seen any of those. - ParasN2000

Mad Max Fury Road is one of the greatest, maybe the greatest action movie of all time. Babadook is one of the best modern horror films of all time. The Australian film industry needs more support and money. Most Aussie films are funded by the government. We don't have big film production studios

What Australia is so underrated

The worst of the lot
