12 Years A Slave was great but you'll never find a movie this good for a while

23The Social Network
24The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

An inspirational and sad story about a man aging backwards, another masterpiece by David Fincher, Brad Pitt is stellar in this movie, his best part yet

25The Green Mile

a timeless, inspirational and magical, don't forget funny story about a Cell Block and a prisoner who was sentenced for a crime he didn't commit, Must be Stephan King's greatest novel of all time

27The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

A timeless masterpiece added to Peter Jackson's collection, his second movie on this list, the stunning sequel to the Fellowship of the Ring, considered one of the greatest sequels of all time

Lost to Chicago - roblist

I think the reason Chicago won was because Chicago made musicals hip again. Without Moulin Rouge and Chicago there wouldn't be a Mamma Mia film. However 2 Towers was the better film.
