3 Monsters, Inc.

This movie is my childhood, I watched it a ton of times and never got bored, I also own the DVD, in my opinion, this is the second best movie of the year. - PeeledBanana

My favourite movie. I've basically grown up with it.

My sister was scared of this movie ha ha hašŸ˜‚ - Danguy10

Preety cool

4 Spirited Away

This gets my vote - fuadmondeo

It was okay

Hell yes

5 Evolution
6 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

It may not have been the best of the franchise but it's the one that started it all. Third best movie of the year in my opinion. - PeeledBanana

How can this icon be below Jurassic Park III? - Donut

It began a revolutionary new film series!

A classic that will span generations.

7 Donnie Darko

In my opinion, this is probably the first most unique Jake Gyllenhaal character he ever played. Not that his past performances where bad, but they were characters that I've seen in other movies. There is only character that Jake was born to play, and that title goes to Donnie Darko. He is funny, charming, intriguing but at the same time he was dangerous, mysterious and deep. And the movie surrounding this character just makes the experience all the more awesome. Definitely one of my top 10 favorite films of all time.

Donnie Darko belongs on #1. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Donnie so well, it's captivating and just beautiful.

Favorite movie bro.

You have 28 days,6 hours,42 minutes and 12 seconds to love this movie.Easily the greatest sci fi movie of all time.

8 Mulholland Dr.

This movie had a very interesting plot, one that might've confused many viewers, but that is exactly what is so phenomenal about this motion picture.

9 Heartbreakers
10 Jurassic Park III

Jurassic park is AMAZING! - Ajkloth

Childhood memories

I like that movie

The Contenders

11 Ocean's Eleven

One hell of a cast here. George Clooney, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Carl Reiner, Casey Affleck, Andy Garcia, Brad Pitt, Elliot Gould and Julia Roberts.

12 Black Hawk Down
13 A Beautiful Mind

11? I going to be honest the first one of shrek wasn't so funny than I remember, I like more the first one, monsters inc is funny but not so original, I don't liked jurassic park 3, the only movies than is probably better than this one are spirited away and the fellowship of the ring

14 Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

I love jimmy nuetron!

15 Memento
16 A.I.: Artificial Intelligence

Spielberg's direction from the works of Kubrick leaves us a great Sci-Fi with great philosophic questions, the story of a robot who learns to love - MatrixGuy

17 Training Day
18 Moulin Rouge

It's hard to find anything that beats Moulin Rouge. The filming, the script, the acting and the music are perfect. A truly great film. - RiffandMagenta
