one of the greatest movies that introduced shocking moments in movies - MatrixGuy

This looks like a horror masterpiece. But is moderm horror films scary? I know when years after 1960 have passed more horror movies are becoming stupid and scarier in the 2000s better not see it

This is a no brainer

2 2001 - A Space Odyssey

one of the greatest achievements in cinema - MatrixGuy

Much better than Psycho in my opinion - AliciaMae

3 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

A riveting, hilarious, sometimes poignant tale of a Mexican bandit who discovers a cache of gold buried in a remote military cemetary, and joins forces with a bounty hunter to get his hands on it. - SourNote2014

18 Dr. No
19 A Shot in the Dark
20 The Manchurian Candidate
21 L'avventura

23 The Bad Sleep Well

A biting satire of big corporations, thinly disguised as a loose adaptation of 'Hamlet'.
Kurosawa brings a few of his usual players into the cast: Toshiro Mifune, Takashi Shimura, Kamatari Fujiwara, Yoshio Tsuchiya, as well as Seiji Miyaguchi, who was best known as Kyuzo in 'Seven Samurai'. Mifune plays the protagonist with restrained rage, as a character who wants to be bad but can't quite manage.
This is an incredible film. Check it out! - SourNote2014

24 For a Few Dollars More
25 The Great Escape
26 Psycho
27 The Italian Job

Has a strong message against violence, but is much more lighthearted and relaxed than 'Yojimbo'. - SourNote2014
