44 Eraserhead
45 Once

Once is a beautiful movie with real human emotion and spectacular music. It truly blew me away. Steven Spielberg said "A little movie named Once gave me enough inspiration for the rest of the year."

One of the best movies I have ever seen. So honest. And the soundtrack was amazing, had to be, considering it starred two musicians. I would definitely rate it higher.

So good! The music, indescribable!

46 The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

An amazing and underrated film. With a star studded lineup, witty dialogue, and genius situational comedy this movie could easily be your new favorite.

47 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

A bunch of kids unwisely investigate a creepy Texan homestead. Scooby Doo was never this scary.
The exploitation pic marketing for Tobe Hooper's landmark horror was effective enough - but the real coup was to make the on-screen violence blunt and bludgeoning. - kingdavid

48 The House of Mirth

A really great movie with an outstanding gillian anderson!

Gillian Anderson and Laura Linney are superb in it.

A Terence Davies Masterpiece

49 High Fidelity

This movie is great, definitely John Cusack's finnest as an neurotic record store owner, just amazing!. And you've got to love Jack Black in his role

50 Harold and Maude

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. Between the soundtrack, theme and humor, this movie will always entertain you - no matter how many times you watch it.

An amazing movie with a great moral-it doesn't matter what age you are to love.

Surreal and a masterpiece. A Great Mystery, thriller by David Lynch with a story you might have never come acros

60 Thirteen

This movie, even though may be a bit much is a great movie to teach young girls about teenager hood which isn't what it's cracked up to be. It really is a greta film.

Was a good movie... a lot of teens have gone through things like that before... and it can also show teens that havn't been through that... not to do drugs or anything eles like that xXx - kassybaby133
