The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption The Shawshank Redemption

Simply the best... but what else does one expect from the mind of Stephen King?

A perfect movie.. should have won Academy Award for Best Director, Film, Actor, Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Cinematography. - redgedawson

An extraordinary and uplifting film, that really deserved critical acclaim, its too bad Forest Gump was also a movie made in that year.

I don't understand.. Really what isn't to like about it.? - Beatlesboy9

2 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight

A flawless acting by the cast especially Heath Ledger, great story line and great direction. Too bad it did not even get the best picture nomination.

Slumdog millionaire is a crap compared to this

Mask of the phantasm anyone or am I alone

I've not seen Shakespeare in Love, but how that beat this, I will never know.

4 GoodFellas GoodFellas
5 Citizen Kane Citizen Kane

Yeah, I think this didn't win because so many people thought it was bad. It was good it was nominated, though.

It's amazing how a whole audience's perception can change over time. - dureckl

"For those who think it is overrated, watch all of the American cinema prior to this movie. Then watch Citizen Kane".

BEST MOVIE EVER! From technique to acting its just a masterpiece

6 Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now

One of the best films of all time, somehow beat by Kramer vs. Kramer... - Badwolf

7 There Will Be Blood There Will Be Blood
8 Pulp Fiction Pulp Fiction
9 2001 - A Space Odyssey 2001 - A Space Odyssey
10 Taxi Driver Taxi Driver

With a pure style of 70s crime, Martin Scorsese give the great crime movie!

The Contenders

11 Psycho Psycho
12 A Streetcar Named Desire
13 Jaws Jaws

Jaws is an amazing movie! With great storyline characters, and that music...just AWESOME!

14 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
15 Sideways Sideways
16 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Actually it kind of did win; it was well-known that the Academy voters were waiting for the Trilogy to be completed, and ROTK received the benefit of all 3 movies being among the best of all time.
