The Top TenXW

1Inception

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. DiCaprio's acting was great.

Great, exceptional movie of the new decade. A mind bending movie which blends great acting, Action, Science Fiction, Adventure, Romance, Drama - roblist

As much as I loved blood diamond, this was breathtaking

This movie is the only movie where I can watch it three times back to back and still not understand everything! I love it!

2The Departed

Nicholson, Dicaprio and Damon- Put these three in a fil with Scorsese's direction and you see the gripping, classic mob movie. And how dare anyone put this behind titanic?

How the hell can anyone put blood diamond over this CLASSIC mob movie? Man! The departed should be ranked among classics, I'm talking the godfather I and II, Goodfellas and Heat!

One of Leo's best performances, as well as the best film he's ever done without considering his character. The deep plot, powerful performances, and perfect directing make it his strongest films- his character's infiltration into the mob, perfectly capturing the anxiety and dread he fills and mastering a Boston accent makes it one of his best performances. - Cfp3157

Most intense movie I have ever seen

3Titanic

BEST MOVIE EVER, GREAT PLOT! He looked so handsome there and I love the plot, the acting was great, I love how old rose is telling the story, I love how at the end rose dreams or reunites in heaven with jack at the clock on titanic. I just wish he didn't die.

Nothing on Earth can rival the epic spectacle and breathtaking grandeur of Titanic, the sweeping love story that sailed into the hearts of moviegoers around the world, ultimately emerging as the most popular motion picture of all time. Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar-nominee Kate Winslet light up the screen as Jack and Rose, the young lovers who find one another on the maiden voyage of the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic. But when the doomed luxury liner collides with an iceberg in the frigid North Atlantic their passionate love affair becomes a thrilling race for survival. From acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron comes a tale of forbidden love and courage in the face of disaster that triumphs as a true cinematic masterpiece.

THIS MOVIE MAKES ME CRY every TIME... HE WAS SO HOT AND... WHAT IS SO SAD ABOUT THIS MOVIE IS THAT SUCH A GOOD PERSON HAD TO DIE... HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR SOMEONE HE LOVES... NOW that's LOVE... I JUST WISH I HAD A BOYFRIEND LIKE JACK BUT that's REALLY RARE SINCE THIS IS 21 CENTURY.. BUT, WHO KNOWS.. By the way, LOVE THE ENDING SCENE... I LIKE THINKING THAT THEY REUNITED IN HEAVEN... JACK AND ROSE FOREVER

Most romantic love story I ever saw

4The Wolf of Wall Street

The best DiCaprio we have ever seen! Congrats... He must win the oscar! And I will never forget the phone/kitchen scene! I am still laughing! One of the best scenes ever!

I love Inception but I'd actually list that number two because The Wolf Of Wall Street is so big. Everything you could possibly imagine is a part of this movie. Sex, drugs, money, crime and more. Very entertaining, very moving, and very inspiring. I literally wanted to be Jordan Belfort after I'd watched the whole movie!

I don't know how this is so low it's by far one of his best performances I loved django and aviator but his acting was so diverse

I can't choose the best movie of DiCaprio because he acts so well in every movie. I choose this movie as his best because I don't think I would have liked this movie if not for DiCaprio. I'm still figuring out why I like this movie, and Leonardo's acting seems to be the main reason.

5Shutter Island

I really cannot choose what film of dicaprio is the best! All of his movies I believe that are awesome! I love inception, titanic, the departed, the blood diamond, the aviator and more but I choose the shutter island for only one reason. Leonardo�'s acting was EXCELLENT, AWESOME, GREAT! I�'m speechless of his performance! Congratulations Mr. Dicaprio... You are one of the BEST actors out there! Thank you of making that great movies and performances!

I was fascinated by this film though I also like Inception and Titanic, maybe I just like the theme of this film. Oh yes also because Leo is a Brilliant actor.

Breathtaking performance tremendous direction and dark backdrop made this one of my all time favorite

Amazing film, I recommend it

6Blood Diamond

Straight perfect story, your head will not hurt to understand this movie, simple and perfect movie of caprio ever, One of the best finishing

Watch this! It is an amazing movie with a true story behind it, the conflict diamonds in Africa are still happening today, and this is one movie that definitely shows off Leo's acting skills!

This is one of the best movies I've ever watched. The heart touching scenes that he brings forth with his character just truly makes this movie amazing, and life like. This is a true story that really expresses the circumstances around the character Leo plays.

Real story of the world

7Django Unchained

Django Unchained is an amazing movie. lots of action and awesome scenes plus an entire scene improvised by Dicaprio which involved him slicing his hand and then improvising uses his own spilt blood into the scene by wiping it on the actress Kerry Washington's face with his own blood out of his very hand. This movie is an amazing Drama

How can you not like a movie with Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo Dicaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson. directed by Quentin Tarantino - bawchikawaowao

It's a fantastic film with an extraordinary waltz and foxx. tarantino is a legend!

His acting in this movie was superb!

8Catch Me If You Can

All emotions are felt in this movie, and that is because of leo's exceptional acting skills. Humor, hate, acceptance, love, friendship and betrayal. Such an amazing movie, I will never forget this

This is a film I can watch everyday. Leonardo is an awesome actor with unbelievable skills. This film show's so a lot of different emotions. definitely deserves the top spot.

Easily one of the best DiCaprio roles and movies. One of the reasons was nothing could hold him down, examples are he could almost be whatever he wanted to, he could fool the FBI, and date whoever he wanted to.

Haven't seen this in so long. Class act though

9The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby is the most amazing movie I've ever seen with Leonardo DiCaprio! I loved the plot, I loved the scene. The movie has so much passion, romance and a lot more. BEST MOVIE EVER

This movie is great. Close to number 1 with titanic

It's one of those movies that just make you fall in love with the characters and I absolutely fell in love with Leonardo, I would definitely recommend watching this.

A good movie which truly shows the harsh realities of the world. When you laugh, the whole world laughs with you, but when you cry, you cry alone.

The Contenders

11What's Eating Gilbert Grape

Amazing performance and at such a young age. This should definitely be in his top three performances.

Amazing acting by both him and johnny depp

Once I learned that he in fact, was the one ACTING as a mentally challenged kid, I had to watch it again & ok, again. Fantastic Leo...this is the flim in which I fell "In Love" with him. I wanted and couldn't wait to see what he was going to do next, just because I kinda of...just knew this guy is & did become something so special in the world of film & actors

Amazing movie that really Tugs on your heart stings, his performance in this was nothing short of spectacular

12The Revenant

You cannot take your eyes away from this masterpiece. You feel like you are actually there... That bear scene is already a classic scene! Also Dicaprio offers us his best performance! While you are watching this movie you cannot recognise Dicaprio, you see only Hugh Glass and that is real acting. He absolutely deserves the oscar this year and he will win it. My favorite performance by him. Finally we don't need to talk about the direction, cinematography, costumes,make-up and of course Hardy, all perfect.

The one defining reason that this movie should be in the top 3, is because he finally after all the excellent performances he finally got the oscar. Not saying this is one of his best movies would just be ridiculous

Fantastic movie, fantastic acting from DiCaprio.

The BEST ani can get

13The Aviator

Good story, but in The Aviator Leo is sublime. For me in this movie is for Oscar. Why? Because in life I want believe a miracole, for me this life is fire creation and Leo live perfect this ideal. He us such a brilliant actor, but I cannot describe what this genius feel:love, dream, ideal, lucidity, light, universe, model of word, master in art, majestic, unlimited fire creations, one word: THIS IS LIFE!

How is this not at the top? This is awesome movie - shaileshjoshi

This movie is AMAZING! How can you not like it?

Extremely impressed by Leo's acting in this movie. Absolutely on spot! And great film overall, as well (particularly Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn)

14The Beach

I agree, we always do the same thing and bring the comforts of home with us. The soundtrack is beautiful and reminds me of memories from summer time. I hope I find my paradise! :-)

Good book, good film
And he looks hot as hell
And it's a danny boyle film so it deserves to be up there too. Great moby song as the soundtrack and the element of truth that we do go abroad and wind up doing the same

Legendary movie. Has such a deep meaning in it. MUST WATCH!

15William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet

The BEST movie ever with Leonardo Dicaprio in it! My all time favorite movie. He was the perfect actor for this role and I really thought he embraced his character Romeo very well. Everything about this movie was amazing and it's in my top 5 of all time favorite movies

I love all of leonardo dicaprio's movies but his performance in William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet just blew me away. This phenomenon is a touching, heart wrenching movie Which had me fixated from the get go. I definitely recommend it.

This film is amazing and left me in tears I think you have to understand Shakespeare's language to really get into the film but the plot is beautiful as well as leonardo dicaprio in Romeo and Juliet

Incredible movie and terrific performances by both Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as well as all of the supporting cast. One of the better Shakespeare adaptations around and most certainly one of the best Romeo and Juliet adaptations!

16The Basketball Diaries

Really good acting by Leo about a real person and Leo also acts with him in the film Jim Carroll, Basketball Diaries

So many great movies from my favourite actor, but this one is so relatable to people from the street

One of his best performance.Definitely deserves to be in top 5.
It was a dream, not a nightmare, a beautiful dream I could never imagine in a thousand nods. There was a girl next to me who wasn't beautiful until she smiled and I felt that smile come at me in heat waves following, soaking through my body and out my finger tips in shafts of color and I knew somewhere in the world, somewhere, that there was love for me.

17Revolutionary Road

One of Leonardo DiCaprio's most underrated movies. Excellent film, though, and both Leo and Kate's acting just blew me away!

I actually felt it better than titanic...

Who was imagining Frank and April as Jack and Rose

18This Boy's Life

His performance in this film is quite something. His portrayal of bullied by his stepfather (Robert De Niro) is utterly convincing. It makes me cry throughout because you can feel the sheer frustration in him that can only come from being a truly great actor. - Britgirl

Should be top 10! Great Movie! Great Acting! I think this has got to be the best acting Iv seen from Leo and despite so early in his career!
