6 GoodFellas

I love films that just tell a story. and I think this lists really reflects that. There is really no judgment in most of the films on this list. They don't have an alternative motive. They are just fantastic stories. - Badoosh45

7 The Matrix

Its not my favorite series, but the first movie was great. And It's definitely the most influential movie of the 90s. Everyone started copying the way they did their SFX. - VADERtheIMPALER

This is one movie that could actually be true. Who knows? , we all could be dreaming. - westofohio

A Virtual Science Fiction that redefined action and philosophy - MatrixGuy

8 The Silence of the Lambs
9 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Machines could one day take the control of the world if mankind is not carefoul with those things.
The Movie is a warning of that... - MatrixGuy

Terminator 2: Review
Well since its 1994 and there's not much u know... Special effects. 93% in rotten tomatoes. I can't decide which one is better Genisys or Judgement day because they used too much action, Arnold being silly. But in Judgement Day, I like everything about it. Really a good movie 10/10

10 Jurassic Park

The movie that errupted the dinomania all over the world - MatrixGuy

Definitely one of the all time best movies of all time.

It's the movie that marked my life

The Newcomers

? Get Shorty
? Clueless

The Contenders

11 Toy Story

Changed CGI Forever and made Disney great again after a disappointing decade in the 1980s. - jamienicholls

Come on! This was Pixar's best movie, how is it not in the top ten

My first favorite is Lion King but this is the second - Pixtol

One of my favorite movies

12 Fight Club

Love this movie. Will always love it. It gets some undeserved hate - Justintime221

I'm sorry but how is this not in the top ten? Hell should even be in the top 5 at least.

13 Saving Private Ryan

The best scene was easily the Omaha beach in the beginning - Ajkloth

14 Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace

Most underrated Star Wars movie of all time. People need to stop judging it because of jar jar binks. The movie had great music, visual effects, and memorable characters. My favorite scene was the pod race scene when Anakin won the race. So far this and episode 7 had the highest box offices in the series. Don't listen to the haters. If there is a Star Wars movie to hate it, is episode 2 attack of the clones.

Easily the worst star wars movie ever made, nowhere near as good as episode 2 Attack of the Clones which is easily the best prequel. Horrible, horrible movie whose only redeeming quality id John Williams' score. - jarjar36

Although not achieving much critical acclaim the movie was a box office success. - jamienicholls

We don't just judge it because of Jar Jar. It's boring, and barely has any action.
