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

It began a revolutionary new film series!

A classic that will span generations.

7 Heartbreakers
8 Jurassic Park III

Jurassic park is AMAZING! - Ajkloth

Childhood memories

I like that movie

9 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

10 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.

The Contenders

11 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.

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

12 Memento
13 Ocean's Eleven
14 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

THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING! Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kiddman were amazing. The music was phenomonal and had an incredible heatfelt story!

15 Black Hawk Down
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
