Best Movies of 2002

The Top Ten

1 Spider-Man

Super good kicked off the Spider-Man trilogy excellently tobey McGuire was good Dafoe was amazing really good

This Film Should Be at Number 1. Since It's the Blockbuster Superhero
Movie. By: Sam Raimi.

The main reason that 2002 is my favourite year for movies.

One of the best superhero movies of all time - Ajkloth

2 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers



The words "LORD OF THE RINGS" alone make this the best film of 2002

How could any movie beat The Two Towers? Great action sequences, great acting, great characters, great story, great battles... a great movie overall. This entire movie trilogy should forever stay the best in the history of all movies, and especially since it was the movie trilogy that could never be made. The author himself said the books were unsuitable for dramatic representation. The Two Towers is absolutely the best movie of 2002, and nothing should ever beat it. EVER.

3 Ice Age

The First Film Of this Animated
Masterpiece. For the Very First Time.

The best movie in the franchise.

That's a great movie

4 The Bourne Identity
5 Catch Me if You Can

This Was Alright Since Spielberg was the
Producer & had Tom Hanks.

Leo DiCaprio + Tom Hank = Masterpiece

Best movie of 2002.

Leonardo DiCaprio+Tom hanks+Steven Spielberg=Best thing in the whole planet

6 8 Mile

Best movie of 2002.. but I did love spiderman but this movie is just the movie. I relate to it on personal levels and the struggles he went through. - skyebrntt

This film brings out what true rap is all about, the acting not only from Eminem, but everyone's is awesome! And it's so realistic, all the struggles and problems it's just so amazing, my favorite film of all time.

My favorite movie! I want to become a rapper, but Eminem's role in this film is great enough for that not to be the reason

This movie is so interesting and I like the rap battles - Ajkloth

Love this movie it is awesome 😎 I like it with Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cameron Diaz. One of the best movies of 2002. I am three years older than 2002, which means I am born in 1999, so... Gangs of New York is amazing ☺
