Best Movies on IMDB's Top 250


The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption

Just includes everything that a great movie needs.

2 The Godfather
3 The Dark Knight

Ok, Heath Ledger did an awesome job on Joker, but voting this simply for the sake of sympathy vote of Heath Ledger and Joker is just stupid.

People, let's be real. It doesn't need to be this high on the list. You are putting over other much better films and it's just... just really annoying.

One of my favorite movies of all time - Ajkloth

4 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The best film of our time

5 The Godfather Part II
6 Pulp Fiction
7 Fight Club
8 Goodfellas
9 American History X
10 Stalker

The Contenders

11 Gone With the Wind

Amazing masterpiece. I can't stop watching it! Even though it's 3 minutes away from being 4 hours I never get bored or tired of it! GONE WITH THE WIND FOR THE WIN! - MontyPython

12 Saving Private Ryan
13 Citizen Kane
14 2001: A Space Odyssey

One of the classics.Stanley Kubrick! Any other reason to watch it now?

15 The Big Lebowski
