The Top Ten

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is amazing! Timeless! I will forever remember this movie, and I know I will show my kids this movie as well. There's just an infinite amount of meaning in this movie, and moments captured that I'm sure generations to come will be able to enjoy.
One of the best, if not THE best, film of all time. Forrest Gump always brings out the good things in life, even when all seems hopeless. I can watch it over and over. Five stars!
How on God's Green Earth is Twilight number 2?
Forrest Gump
Saving Private Ryan
Green Mile
Pulp Fiction
I could name 1000 movies I would rather watch than the Notebook.

If I ever meet edward in real life I would pull a mortal kombat x ray move on him.

3The Godfather
ATTENTION! Bonasera bonasera... That is all :P

I can see this movie after fifty years from now.. and with the same enthusiasm. Have seen it more than 50 times, n still counting.
Nothing to say because its story was told timeless.


5To Kill A Mockingbird
A great book on breaking stereotypes turned into an even better movie. WITH GREGORY PECK!

6The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
How the hell is twilight second? Twilight is quite possibly the worst movie ever made in the history of movie making. Are you guys on crack? Twilight will never be and has never been good movie making and probably will be forgotten in the next few years because it's so horrible.
This list sucks because Twilight is the 2nd and Lord of the Rings is 16th. I guess that all the Twilight fans are desperate and they need to get it the 1st. No chance. It will never be remembered like Lord of the Rings. Do some people actually think that some piece of trash like Twilight could beat a real timeless masterpiece?
Twilight is 1 and the lord of the rings is 21! What is wrong with you people? This is truely an epic story that has already lasted 50 years.

7The Basketball Diaries
If you watch the begging you'd think it would be "Just another Teen Movie" but it is so Much more...
My favorite part is when the four of em' are walking in the rain after the death of their friend
Leo is so qute...

8Cool Runnings
This was one of my favourite movies growing up! It's touching, yet funny, and completely innocent. I would have no problem showing this to my children. Great family flick!

9A Time to Kill
One of my favorite movies of all time!... Matthew McConaghey's closing argument not only had the jury struggling to hold back tears; It gave me a knot in my throat that would not go away hours after seeing it. Truly touching!


Denzel and Hanks combined... U just knew it was gonna be AMAZING

The Contenders

11Lean on Me

Tupac would have been great if he were still alive today... this movie proves it!

13Pulp Fiction

14Coming To America
Eddie Murphy has never and will never be funnier

15A Christmas Story
How old is it? Yet I laugh and cry every year since I was like 4...

16The Preacher's Wife
If nothing else Whitney Houston singing...

17The Green Mile

18Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Come on Rum Runners vote for Pirates

The fact that the Jackass films are Improvised makes it even more funny.
Nothing like a bit of good old fashioned slapstic from the MTV legend that is the Jackass crew.
There will inevitably be some Jackass wannabes in several years time,

20Stand By Me
THIS SHOULD BE 31 (sorry... hit caps w/o realizing it... should be #1. ) not TWILIGHT (damnit... did it again [yeah right lol]).



22The Third Man

23We Were Soldiers

24It's a Wonderful Life

25The Good, The Bad and the Ugly


27Raging Bull
One of my favourites, it's such a classic. I can see myself watching this in 30 years time.

28Legends of the Fall

29The Princess Bride

30Men In Black


32The Matrix

33Toy Story 2


35The Thing



38The Human Condition

39The Breakfast Club
How is this movie NOT on here? Any teen from any generation can easily associate themselves with the characters of such a masterpiece.

40The Seventh Seal

41The Silence of the Lambs

42Mary Poppins

43The Lion King
Hands down, the most immortal animated movie of all time. And it's just so iconic. Every generation has seen it. It's the Tom and Jerry of movies. Simply epic.

44The Deer Hunter
Despite being 3 hours and 3 minutes long! It is simply the greatest work of art ever made! I have never gave more concentration to anything other than this work of art! WATCH IT! If you have already seen it, Watch it again. TRUST ME! Anyone who likes amazing movies (Like Forest Gump, Goodfellas, The Godfather (Series), Lord of the Rings (Series), The Green Mile etc. ) YOU WILL LOVE IT!

45Back to the Future
How is this not in top ten but twilight is?
