The Top TenXW

1The Lion King

Yes it's an animation movie arguably directed at children but that it is not. This masterpiece is one of Disney's greatest creations, never in this day and age of film making will we see such a strong hearted family film. Everything from the life like scenary and marvelous soundtrack make this is a MUST HAVE for any film collection. - chloewebb01

That's a LIE! The Lion King is NOT that kinda film for any child to watch!

I remember cying at the bit that simba's father gets killed by all the wildebeast when I was little. - munkee_linc97


New girlfriend meets ex wife, the trials and episodic emotions they face are understandable to everyone. The way in which Julia Roberts & Susan Sarandon carry their roles was brilliant. Both went hand in hand. The ending was nothing short of bliss and everything the viewer would desire. Excellent. - chloewebb01

3Blood Diamond

Excellent and creative plot, Sensational cast. Leaves you feeling inspired. - chloewebb01


Who hasn't seen this? If you answered 'Me', Get to your local movie store! 5 stars. Actually, 6! - chloewebb01

5E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

Anything directed by 'speilberg' is effortlessly grand. The story of boy meets alien is always good, but this was the original and still the best. Generations of familys always dust off this classic to show the little ones. - chloewebb01

6Mary and Max

Way underrated. Needs more recognition as it is an exceptional cinematic marvel. - chloewebb01

8My Best Friend's Wedding

I cannot fight the tears through this film! I'm always led to believe I know the characters personally due to the great cast and the true heart warming tale. - chloewebb01

Fabulous acting from Robin Williams, To carry off a role of the opposite sex is one thing, but to pull it off with complete convincing is another! - chloewebb01
