Best Movies of All Time

The Top Ten Best Movies of All Time

1 Forrest Gump

My all time favorite! Never feel boredom to watch again and again

No, Billy Madison is better than Shawshank and Forest Gump combined. I'm sorry but that's just an opinion

A true masterpiece. This movie is a real thing of beauty, inspirational and superb. A lot of us could and should look up to Forrest Gump.

Forrest Gump and 2nd goes together like peas and carrots

This movie is perfect. You never get bored of it. The characters are so enlightening and I find myself nodding along. All of these characters are strong, and Tom Hanks delivers an absolute stunning role as Forrest Gump.

2 The Godfather

No doubt the best movie of all time. This has one of the better casts ever in a movie.

Great Movie, has everything a movie should have, and more.

This is 100% the best movie of all time...
I know all those Citizen Kanes or Casablancas but hey,
Marlon Brando's got an offer you can't refuse...
Best acting(both brando and Al Pacino) as well as direction... Best quotes of all time...
What else can I say it's the whole life of a godfather in the film

I absolutely love this movie. A movie that had one of the best casts ever assembled with greats like Brando, Pacino, and Duvall. It's hard to hate this movie, the performances are stellar, it grabs your attention, planned really well, it was also kind of beautiful in a way, and was made by a great director in Francis Ford Coppola.It also was a very influential movie. I'm not sure if anyone will ever look at this... but here is my personal top 10 list (if you're curious):
1. The Godfather 6. Schindler's List
2. The Shawshank Redemption 7. The Dark Knight
3. Citizen Kane 8. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
4. Psycho 9. It's A Wonderful Life
5. 2001: A Space Odyssey 10. The Legend Of The Drunken Master

3 The Dark Knight

Best comic book movie ever made. Ledger was damn mesmerizing as the psychopathic Joker. Bale delivers a great Batman and the best Bruce Wayne. His Batman would've been best if it had not been for the voice, although I enjoyed listening to it. It's just that I've never imagined Batman talking like thAT. Easily beats every comic book movie ever made, except maybe Batman 3 which is currently in the process of getting made. Just my Humble Opinion.

One of the finest performances of the villain and great screen play by Nolan brothers

its one of the greatest movie I have ever seen

An exciting and thought-provoking movie with a nearly flawless screenplay by the Nolan brothers as well as the impressive direction by Christopher Nolan. Ledger gave a natural performance which is very indispensable for this movie as the Joker. Caine, Oldman, Freeman also gave great performances. To sum up, it's not only the greatest action movie, but also the greatest movie I've ever seen!

4 The Shawshank Redemption

Fantastic movie! Well acted, well plotted, well filmed. Such a beauty to watch over and over.

No love intrest, no car chase, no big battle, no great views of the country, but the best tale you will ever find on film, a wonderful story with things that will chill and warm you. This has only one problem, you can only see it the first time once

This is my favorite movie of all time. Stephen King's best.
The Godfather is my second, though. So I understand the choice.

So people let the most overrated film of all time (Lion King) gross to 900 million dollars and completely ignored this masterpiece of a film? I'm not kidding, Shawshank Redemption bombed at the box office. - Lucaz23

5 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

The level with which I identified with these characters, the insane suspense during the final scenes, wanting everything to turn out okay and knowing that it just CAN'T. I will never forget the first time I saw this. And it's just as good the 100th time around.

I'm a MAJOR STAR WARS fan and this is one of the three greatest movies of all time (I think)

It was tough to choose, but in the end...

Just perfect, from the lightsaber duel to the scary reveal to Han and Leia's romance to Yoda training Luke, not to mention the perfectly choreographed Battle of Hoth, and the cliffhanger at the end. Besides, the actors have such amazing chemistry. It is all tied together by John William's brilliant score, making this one of the greatest movies of all time. I also like the way the bad guys finally win.

6 Pulp Fiction

Everything in Pulp Fiction is GREAT! The actors, the script, the music, the chronology. It's the masterpiece of a genius and the best movie ever. Period!

I'm surprised that this movie and indeed none of the quentin tarantino movies are in the top 10

The most innovative film since Raging Bull. The greatest use of a non-linear plot structure ever. Tarantino brilliantly transfers an Elmore Leonard style of dialogue to the screen. Samuel L. Jackson has one of the most menacing, yet emotionally resonant performances ever put to film, and yes it is also freakin hilarious. Forrest Gump and Titanic are tone-deaf films made for the lowest common denominator.

Your jibes at "Gump" and "Titanic" seem odd, when you consider how much gratuitous drug use and violence were in this movie. - wylie

I have to vote for Pulp Fiction, because it shows almost every element that I love to see in a movie. With no real main character, it gives the viewer an opportunity to connect more with all the characters and not only like one or two. The direction of Quentin Tarantino is just amazing, it is one of those movies that almost every scene is a good scene and it always has a signifcant meaning. My favorite scene has to be the burguer scene when Jules starts off has a sympathetic guy, but when the guys get in his nerve he just explodes with rage. Another one is when Vincent has to inject adrenaline into Mia Wallace heart after she got overdosed, that scene is just funny and it really shows one of Quentin Tarantino's best marks, the black comedy. To sum it up, I love this movie and it will always be my number one of all time. - Skuller

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

come on there is no greater movie ever made its that simple you will never experiense any better movie in your whole life

Come on there is no greater comment ever made its that simple you will never see better comment than this in your whole life. - DarkKnight2005

Have them all as well as the books.
Greatest films ever.
Films above go away.
Keep voting!

Best movie ever, the fighting sequels were great and the action was great better than harry potter

This is one of the best movies ever.
I watched all the other parts too, its just great!

8 Back to the Future

why isn't this higher!? every actor is so genius! the script is so hilarious. I quote it everyday. and it was such great effects for when it was filmed. I simply love it ") - hawkcatcher04

Everytime you watch it you spot something different. Very funny script! "Hey Lorraine if you ever have a kid that acts that way I will dis-own you"

Amazing movie, amazing script, amazing actors. The best movie period.

It's a great movie even if the future in the movie is nothing like now.

9 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

The sci fi classic that paved the way for a lot of action classics and also launched the greatest franchise in history.

STAR WARS... I mean, I really don't need to say anything else. Oh and also HAN SHOT FIRST!

This should be in the top 20 somewhere and it is the beginning of the world's biggest franchise of all time! Give it some recognition on this list, it is a legend!

Decent Star Wars movie but pretty overrated. Has poor cast of characters compared to many films including the Star Wars Prequels and a very unsatisfying lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan and Vader. Seriously, it's an embarrassment to consider this to be top 10 films of all time material when it's main characters are a Princess with hardly any personality, a space cowboy with little personality and an ambitious but somewhat boring farm boy who gets some magical powers, Obi-Wan was the only genuinely interesting character in this film but that's only really because of all the backstory we find out about him from the Prequels which greatly enrich this film. This was one of the best films ever in it's day no doubt, but for the 21st Century it pales in significance to films such as The Dark Knight, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. - HistoricalGuy

10 The Lion King


It's also possible to rationally explain why it's supposedly the best movie ever other than just saying it's the best movie ever and that all movies today suck, something you've also provided no reason for. - 3DG20

Hakuna Matta... What a Wonderful Phrase... It Means no worries for the rest of your Days!

My all time favorite movie. I could live forever with only this to watch. - zipfoster

Did you know this is based on a movie based on a comic based on Bambi?

Honestly you can show your 10 year old Bambi and Bambi II (Yes, there is a Bambi II)
and they'll learn all about how terrible the world is.

The Newcomers

? Love Live! the School Idol Movie
? Brightburn

I thought it good, best of all time? No. But it did it’s job well , it’s good for what it is , except the parents suck

The Contenders

11 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The first Terminator was alright and passable, the third one was totally awful, but Terminator 2 really knocks out, Arnold gives a great action performance. One of the greatest Action movies of all time, and it deserves to be in the top 50, it is not right to have the best Terminator down this far! It won 3 academy awards for its groundbreaking effects which are so much better than the first one! James Cameron is a director who prides himself on making fantastic movies and this is his BEST piece of work!

Truthfully, I think this rubs shoulders with the first installment. A little dark, but it's fascinating that way. - BonJovi17

This movie is the very definition of science fiction. This movie has so many memorable catchphrases. This movie has an amazing villain which a lot of movies lack. The scene where arnie goes into the molten metal to destroy himself was so cinematic. This movie has aged so well and looks so good even today. This movie was made almost 30 years ago. 30 years from now, this movie will still hold it's place as one of the greatest blockbusters of all time.

Honestly great action, properly badass and the BEST plot of all time. Arnold Schwarzneggar was brilliant and delivered some of the best one liners.

12 Titanic

I really love this movie! Because this movie proves me one thing that love can last forever!

No, just no. It was corny, had not very good writing, and I never thought that Leo and Kate had the "right" chemistry. I think if Leo would have looked older, they would have. But at the time, he looked like he was 16 and she was 25. - sharzi

I fell in love with Jack and the story. It made me cry. I wish I could have marry a guy like Jack. A guy who would teach me things, love me so much, and would do everything just for me. Keep voting!

The movie has really a catchy factor, even though I haven't finished watching because the electric current went off, I still watched the 3/4 of the song and I really love it... I like the story of how they met and how love was eternity for both of them! The story is exemplary, it is so sweet...

Titanic is the best movie of all time. No questions asked. This is my story Okay so it was like January 3rd or 4th maybe and I was hanging out with my boyfriend and my friend basically everyone knows my titanic rule that I don't watch it with anyone and after like a month of trying to persuade me they convinced me to watch it with them. Okay so we always watch movies in my basement so I bring the DVD downstairs and put it in the DVD player and I started screaming that I didn't want to watch it to stop the movie I didn't want to see it before the movie even started it was literally the paramount logo. So after a little bit of crying I finally calm down and I'm doing okay until it gets to the "I'm flying scene" and I started bawling I was trying SO hard not to cry but I couldn't help it. Then I put the second DVD in and there was some crying throughout the whole second DVD more intense than the "I'm flying" scene tears but nothing to major. Then the closer we got to ...more

13 Avengers: Infinity War

How can people think that this is one of the best movies of all time

Endgame was more worthy of this position than Infinity War. Endgame deserves to be voted Best Marvel Movie ever made but this should be voted one of the worst unless you make an edited version where both Endgame and Infinity war are combined into one movie. This is due to endless plot holes, characters including Hulk are out of character and the ending to this and every marvel movie after this until endgame is trash. I thought this is the worst sequel to a good movie series ever made besides Pacific Rim 2 and Wreck it Ralph 2. I would rather watch Avengers 1 and Avengers 2 Age of Ultron again because I liked those more. At least is not The Thinning Series, Bird Box, The Oogieloves and Airplane Mode because these films sucked more than this ever did. What's worse is that my least favourite game, Fortnite had two crossover event; one for this and one for Endgame and that there was Fortnite gameplay footage in one scene of Endgame. Of you like this, that's fine as long as you are not ...more

Best movie of All Time ... storyline acting visual effect science fiction it's hall movie make reality it's true

Captain Americas entrance is just amazing... I memorized this movie, every line, every action, every problem, I know it

14 Inception

This is the best science fiction movie in the world. After watching the I wonder about the concept of this movie. If anyone understand the movie correctly I trust that he/she will tell it is the best of the best movie in fiction science. This is outstanding, I watch it many time. Movie rating is always not a factor, but seriously this movie awesome.

I have watched it many times still the feeling of this movie is same.
great concept. I wonder why this movie is not rated has best movie. According to me it is the best movie

The special effect is stunning.. Can't imagine someone enter your mind and playing inside..

I can without a doubt say that this is the best movie I have ever seen. This movie is currently at #11 which is great but I have seen all the 10 movies above and I love them as well, don't get me wrong, but this movie does every aspect to perfection. The story is impeccable and every time I see it I notice something I hadn't before and another piece of the complex puzzle falls into place. The acting is superb, there isn't a single performance that isn't perfect. I challenge anyone to find a movie that has a better overall collective cast effort. The special effects are unreal. The scenes with Arthur in the hotel are some of the best technical achievements in movie history. The action is fantastic and you are on the edge of your seat throughout. And last, but certainly (certainly) not least, the musical score is one of, if not the best movie soundtrack that I have ever heard. I listen to different movie scores occasionally while working, and Hans Zimmer is definitely my favourite film ...more

15 Jurassic Park

My name is Dustin Bible and I cannot believe that Jurassic Park is only 33. I mean I love dinosaurs, despite the fact that mixed dinosaurs from two different time periods and that doesn't make sense to a dino expert like myself. I mean come on who was the fact checker on this. I read the book and the dang T-Rex doesn't have such a dramatic part. Since we are on the book what happened to the aviary. They saved it for the crappy third movie just so they could get that overrated short-armed chicken looking T-Rex more screen time. Why didn't they have an "brontosaurus", sorry I prefer the unofficial name.

It just amazes me that a dinosaur expert like yourself can't figure out that in the Jurassic Park movie it's perfectly possible to clone whatever species you desire, as long as you have a viable genome for it. They could have displayed dinosaurs next to mammoths in the park, but mammoths don't suit the theme of the park. So it actually makes perfect sense that they picked dinosaur species from different era's since they all match the theme. - granite230

Did anyone else cry when they left the diplodocus on the island full of lava? - xXIMABEASTXx

Very good interpretation of the book. The first time dinosaurs looked believable in the movies from my memory.

Jurassic Park is better than Forrest Gump and Titanic, Universal is better than Warner Bros or Paramount and 20th Century Fox.

16 Saving Private Ryan

The first 10 minutes of this movie is visually and emotionally stunning.

I loved it, this my fave, the first 20 minutes is awesome

Love it. This my fave, it ties with like 12 other movies, but I just voted for this one. - Razor79

I've only watched half of it but already I know it's the greatest movie of all time. For the first 27 minutes you don't know whether to scream, cry, look away, or look up the insane Dday. I am a very emotional person so I don't know how I've survived watching this. Best war movie of all time and to me, SINGLE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL FREAKING TIME! How this didn't win best picture, I have no clue. But at least it didn't get completely robbed on this list like Armageddon. vote this up top 10 at least! I beg of you all!

17 The Matrix

Totally the best movie ever! You really feel apart of this movie, and that it really is like true life. But not. The Matrix has you! Neo is the coolest! And the effects are mind blowing!

The matrix is just the best film. It just is, and it made me wonder whether this world actually exists. I can't believe it is only rated here!

Parallels the most important events in modern history - being perpetrated right now. We've been kept in the dark for far too long, like those in the Matrix not ready to be unplugged. Dare to learn the truth and take the red pill. But remember, all I am offering is the truth, nothing more. Do separate searches on YouTube: agenda 21, Ron Paul, economic collapse, Bilderberg, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Judge Napalitano. Volumes of overwhelming evidence. And then no, you won't be able to go back. But if you could, would you really want to?

Funny how everyone takes such a broad work and brandishes it with their own personal political view. - marmalade_skies

Blew my mind, I was in awe the first time I watched it. The action was years ahead of its time.

18 2001: A Space Odyssey

A true masterpiece. Seeing this movie for the first time is a unbelievable experience. - miketm

This film is incredible, mostly because it transcends its label of being a "film", which is a feat that only a few pictures have ever achieved. It is an experience. Kubricks vision propelled decades beyond 1968, offering us the chance to contemplate our existence, the advancement of technology and why we are here. The stunning visuals hold up wonderfully even to this day, and the orchestral contribution can take you from awe and beauty, to fear of the unknown in minutes. A truly glorious and atmospheric depiction of what lies beyond.

Can't believe this is only number 128 when it's one of the deepest films ever made. Filled with messages and ahead of its time. Great special effects, everything about it is perfectly done. Stanley Kubrick is so underrated on this list, half of his films should be on here. - Virtuoso

I cannot put into words what this film means to me... this isn't a film that can be explained
only experienced. It sounds cliche to say that, but I mean it. You can really only know how mind boggling this film is by watching it for yourself.

19 Toy Story

I watch this every year of my life - jakeocchipinti

All toy story movies are fantastic

Toy story is a great kids movie I hope to see number 4 if it comes on netfix - trains45

Best animated franchise of all time. I do like the second one the best but all of them are really good. This movie also changed today’s animation. - Yankees2003

20 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

The fact that this movie is even considered for a list about the greatest movies of all time is absurd in every way imaginable, just because this movie is better than the other two prequels does not mean that it is a good movie. The fight scenes in this movie are unbelievably stupid. The original trilogy had believable fighting where they actually studied how real samurais fought with swords, this movie has dancing and it looks ridiculously fake. The acting is almost as bad as the other two prequels, every line Hayden Christensen has sounds terrible. The way they killed off Padme is stupidity personified, what does losing the will to live even mean and how would that kill you. I would understand if she was suicidal after what happened but she isn't, she dies because she's upset that her husband turned to the dark side and choked her. Ridiculous. Also, the CGI in this movie is some of the worst I've ever seen considering the budget that they had for this movie. Anyone who thinks that ...more - ColeHoppe

This movie isn't the greatest, and it probably shouldn't be this high, but it is severely underrated. People give this movie a bad rap because it's a prequel, but I consider it to be a top 3 star wars movie.

Best of the prequels, but doesn't really need to be higher than films like Jaws, Rocky, Toy Story, and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. This movie was good, and answered many questions I had about the saga. However, I feel there are better films and that this should be lower than 31. - TheWiseOne

Yes the phantom menace and attack of the clones were both pathetic but if they had just made 1 movie for the prequel it would've saved George Lucas time, effort and money to make 2 movies that he didn't need to make. The revenge of the sith has a great plot to it. The only thing I didn't get was how Padme died. 4.8 star rating from my opinion.

21 Fight Club

When I first heard about fight club, all I thought it would be was just a few men fighting and nothing more. I then went to watch the film AND IT BLEW ME AWAY! It was absolutely incredible and really made you think. The story line, the characters, the twist at the end is just incredible. Easily the greatest film ever!

Gritty and brutal but it makes you think and it is so well thought out, produced and acted that it is nothing short of a masterpiece that can be viewed time and time again.

Every time I see this movie I just want to start a fight with someone. The story is great and really makes you think about the person you are and the person you want to be.

Atmospheric, enchanting, inspiring in a darker sense than most can imagine until watching this movie, brutal and manly as hell (literally), and while some find it to be confusing and at times boring, the ending twist is more than enough to make almost everyone I known go "Wait what happened? We should watch this again sometime"

I watched it many times, and you can bet I will watch it many more times, having a bad day? Watch this movie, it wont brighten it up, just make you feel really bad ass for enduring such a day, making you feel like the scum of the earth thanks to this movie that sensation alone is one of the best things I ever experienced, and a good reason to watch this movie any day of the week.

Note: My parents found it boring, but they aren't very bright nor interested in the many different aspects of the mind, so if you like many others do not enjoy the beginning, keep watching it will all make sense in the end, and if it does not learning a bit about the mind ...more

22 Marvel's The Avengers

This movie was the perfect creation. It was made at the perfect time of the Marvel character development stage, and with modern technology, comic book heroes with the incredible depth and allure of imaginative geniuses came to life. With the vast data pool of Marvel knowledge collected by most to see and enjoy The Avengers, they will only ever see it as THE compliment to the universe Marvel Studios has created. With a refreshing mix of action, comedy, emotion, predictability, and unpredictability, it creates new pathways and ties in others, and leaves you only wanting more.

You all need to watch more movies and stop voting until you've seen some more movies - VeritusEro

The plot was perfect. The animation was completely amazed me. It reached a big success in super hero movies. Defeat the other else income if I could say so...

This was average in contrast with the newer movies, but at the time, it was amazing to watch the Avengers fight Loki's army. - BonJovi17

23 The Godfather, Part II

This movie is within the top 3 films of all time, and generally even better than Part I. Al Pacino was more developed in this Part, plus great performances from Michael V. Gazzo (Frank Pentangeli) Robert De Niro (Vito Corleone) and Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth) all of these men got nominated for an Oscar and Robert De Niro ended up winning the award!

The only sequel to a movie better than the original...sorry Empire Strikes Back, you were dethroned.

A brilliant movie, at par with the first if not better deserving a top 10 place

This is, one of the biggest films of all time definitely top 20 material

24 GoodFellas

Best film that Scorsese has ever made! Full of great actors, funny moments and a thorough story!

The best movie Scorsese has ever made. How it didn't win best picture oscar is beyond me.

The best movie of all time, joe Pesci made this movie and it stands today as one of the definitive Crime movies and will always!

What a brilliant film and an undeniable masterpiece. The story is fantastic and intriguing, the acting is flawless and encapsulating, the characters are interesting and you really feel connected to them. Everything about this film is perfect, and it is one of my favourite films of all time.

25 Citizen Kane

Citizen Kane should be in the top 3, possibly #1! (in my opinion) First of all, it's an Orson Welles movie, which he directs and stars in, how could you not love him? Second of all, Orson Welles was a first time director, and he copied things done in other movies that he liked. The outcome of this: Citizen Kane became possibly the greatest film of all time, next to movies like The Godfather, Forrest Gump, and Casablanca. One of the movies with the best dialogue, one of the well known and beautiful movies of all time, and a pretty good cast. This should be over ANY Avengers, Lord Of The Rings, Terminator, Back To The Future and Star Wars movie, Inception, Jurassic Park, Pulp Fiction, Lion King, Saving Private Ryan, Titanic, The Dark Knight, and possibly Shawshank Redemption. I;m just saying, Citizen Kane is very well made and is at the top of almost every movie category: dialogue, beauty, greatness, plot twists, best director and actors, I can go on and on. Everyone has different ...more

How is it possible that Twlight, The Notebook, 300, Scarface & Brokeback Mountain are all ahead of Citzen Kane widely considered one of the greatest pieces of cinematic art of all time. There is some real class A morons voting on this list.


If Endgame is considered greater than Citizen Kane ever, even if it's a hoax, I WILL FREAK OUT BECAUSE THAT AIN'T TRUE. If you don't agree, waste about 2 hours to go WATCH IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF, that's all I have to say, no rant of any kind, just watch it.

26 The Wizard of Oz

This movie is a classic why is this so low on the list, why, I mean this movie is brilliant, it takes me back to a simpler time and place.

Well unlike the other movies (every thing on top with exceptions) This movie is not only classic but the effects are better than movies today! And this movie is old! Also the story slowly builds up and movies like that have epic quality

This film swept the world in a torrent still breezing through our culture to this day - "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", through Dorothy brought color to the corners both so recently bare from the Depression and soon to be swept by a War that would split the world apart. The metaphorical understanding of "There's no place like home." echoed as a call to innocence being lost, an innocence that people of all cultures wanted to return home to. And yet, as the world was already losing its way on that lovely gilded road of 1900s inventions and change - likened to gold the brightening of daily life and travel - the one reliable companion was Toto, in this case, girl's best friend. The hero, our lost daughter, our hope for the future, found the strength and wisdom in her small frame to carry through not only the Lion's cowardice, the Scarecrow's foolishness, and the Tin Man's doubts about his heart, but also to dispel the the illusions of the man behind the curtain. One could ask, does this ...more

This is quite possibly the most recognizable film in the history of cinema.

27 A Clockwork Orange

Confusing, beautiful and hilarious. This movie confronts the audience with only the finest, most carefully crafted chaos. Whacky characters and superb irony. This movie has cult-followers for a reason.

This movie truly packs a cinematic punch. Kubrick truly outdid himself and created a movie that stuck with me for three weeks after I watched it. My god. - PorkHork

Amazing, truly amazing. A masterpiece that does the book well. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie even after the 7th time through

Controversial, Futuristic, Masterpiece, Alex DeLarge and Droogs, Milk Plus, Humanity spirit, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Ludovico treatment oh this movie will cure you alright why not in the top 10?

28 Avengers: Endgame

Why the hell all these overrated kiddie CGI marvel movies doing so high in this list. Clearly so many 10 year olds who have not even seen a great movie in their life are voting here. None of these Marvel movies doesn't deserve to be even in the top 100. Oh God, I hate this generation.

You hate this generation because they have a different preference on movies than you do - PeeledBanana

I hate endgame it sucks its just a spoiler movie for SPOILERS it sucks oh and everyone in youtube comments is saying "i am inevitable" You know what's inevitable MY ASS - Pickleman3

It was an epic movie, gave us the ending to this epic saga of movies. It was able to pull it all together, an enormously sized universe with many characters. Great and memorable scenes/ fan service.

It was sad and I do not like the ending that much like the movie. It is still good.

29 Alien

Jeez this is my favorite horror film. It should be higher than Judgement Day (Terminator) - GeneralRyGy

This list wrong, I agree that The Godfather is number 1 but this movie should be at least 8! This is like the beginning of Sci-Fi Horror movies and is so good! Love the Alien movies, more than Predator!

When it comes to being the master film of Sci Fi Horror, Alien takes out that championship. Slow building suspense pays off as the crew of the Nostromo bring the unwanted and unlucky company of an extraterrestrial abroad their ship. Without any artillery they use other tactics to try and survive. This film is full of so much despair that even though the ending was satisfying it still makes you feel like there is no hope. Academy award winning excellence, behind a stellar cast.

A mind blowing adventure, through space, and kind of adds that terrifying element to space travel and extra terrestrial beings!

30 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Its really a good movie and has a well built story. I'm voting this because it is my last harry potter movie and I will really miss Harry Potter. Vote for this harry fans

Can't believe this film at this position. This is really an amazing movie... Might be not in top 3 but it expect at-least the top 10 position. Please potter fans vote for this film.. And surely we are going to miss harry a lot.. Please if you can vote and comment..

Oh please! This movie here? I really expected it on at least top 3. A good movie, could have been made better, as expectations were running very high from die hard potter fans like me.

Great concept, for some reason I love wars in films and the most important film of the lot - xXIMABEASTXx

31 The Shining

From the pen of the master of horror, Stephen King, to the set of the perfectionist director extraordinaire, Stanley Kubrick, the tale of the Torrances' stay at the terrifying Overlook Hotel is truly one of the greatest horror films ever. From the chilling chords and the gruesome imagery, to the sense of despair and the outstanding acting of Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, this masterpiece gives the world a truly frightening film.

From Stanley THE MAN, the Shining is one his best movies. So dark, troubling, and haunting that it bothers you for years after you see it... A masterpiece of cinema and the greatest horror movie ever made.

Could you believe that this film was nominated for two golden raspberry awards? I'm not even kidding, it was. one for worst director (Stanley Kubrick) and the other for worst actress (Shelly Duvall). but we can agree that shelly wasn't that good of a performance in the movie because kubrick was so displeased with duvall on set that he immediately terrorized her and mistreated her to get the acting right. shelly being so stressed that some of her hair fell out.

I'm getting a little sidetracked here. so yes the shinning received mixed critical response for not being a conventional horror film and was nominated for two razzies.

But don't worry. when it was released on VHS critics immediately re-assessed it. even Roger Ebert saying it is one of the greatest horror films ever made, calling it "strangely disturbing".

I wish Stanley Kubrick didn't exclude the hedge animals from the book. In the book, there were 7 hedges that looked like animals and they came to life. They're not in the movie. I think they should have had this one scene where after danny runs outside from jack, he runs into the hedges that come to life, danny then closes his eyes hoping for them to go away just like he did with the twin girls. Then when he opens them the hedges are covered in blood, guts, and body parts which frightens danny. Now that would've been creative and scary.

32 Schindler's List

Profound... History telling in a manner that is bound to leave you thinking and pondering over a lot of questions... From who are we as humans? Are we able to forgive and to share the bond that humanity is all about... Why do we fight when it belongs to no one and yet to all of us.. And yes to see a man crying for the rings he wore... That could have saved someones life is definitely beautiful...

A great way to show the impact of a true tragedy. My daughter sat with her Daughter and watched it about 4 times, the first couple stopping and explaining the historic relevance. My Grand Daughter has some learning disabilities and they planned to watch the movie in school. I am proud to say My Granddaughter was the only one in the class able to discuss the movie and according to the Teacher was able to help the other students understand more about an awful time in history. It is well worth watching and re watching especially with children so they understand. After all those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Just recently watched this movie, and I can say it is absolutely one of the top ten movies I have ever seen in my life. Not too heartretching, but enough, but the character of a man who was wise and by his wisdom acted out a roll that saved many. He did not become evil or even kill evil, he used his talents, wealth, and wisdom to save others. Bravo to this man and Bravo to the writer, and thank you for the experience. With many murders in this day and age, how to not agree with but continue a path of the greater good, and to use it for the greater good had an amazing payoff. I just say WOW!

I cried in a theater and then I realized everyone else was crying too. I went to the factory in Krakow and Auschwitz because I had to see for myself. - Gkenna

33 Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Why is this movie NOT in the top ten? This is one of my favorite movies ever! - spacepirate33

This is a good but not great movie. Compared to Barry Lyndon and The Godfather this is nothing. Not that it's bad, but it has no match for the aforementioned films. Entertainment vehicles are not great films. It's like a cheesy comic book, rather than the painting like nature of Barry Lyndon and 2001. And does it have to play the same theme song in lots of scenes? It's just unnecessary. Sure, Barry Lyndon sometimes repeated the same songs in some scenes, but not in many scenes.

Barry Lyndon is beautiful, Raiders is not.

This is nothing more than an entertainment vehicle. - TopTenTed

Raiders of the Lost Ark is my all-time favorite movie and should be in the top ten!

How could could this movie not be in the top ten it is way better then the other movies ahead of it this is the greatest movie series in the world!

34 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

This movie is considered to be in the top 20 movies of all time, and it is this low? You have got to be kidding, nominated for 14 oscars including best picture. It had some amazing scenery and visual effects and excellent performances from the actors.

The most amazing journey and quite possibly the greatest movie of all time if you really think about it! The greatest Fantasy of all time, nominated for 14 Oscars and won 4. Any website would definitely put this in their top 20 movies, I don't understand why it is so damn low!?

top 20 for sure, this is one of the best movies of all time in my opinion and in everybody's opinion this website is so corrupt

Never seen a movie with such a great introduction of characters, but still this 3-hours movie is over before you know it.

35 Captain America: Civil War

I am standing by my opinion no matter what, I LOVE CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR! Not only was it the first Marvel movie I seen, it had just the right amount of heroes, villains, swearing, old friends, back from the dead, chose-a-side and superheroes fighting superheroes! I absolutely love this movie, especially the airport fight! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Just saw the red carpet premiere last night and this is my review:

A very good thrilling movie with dozens of action and better than Batman v Superman. Best Marvel Movie ever in the entire universe and will should be #1 in the best movies of 2016 followed by Zootopia and The Jungle Book.

Overrated and awful

Still remains my favorite Marvel movie. It blows every one that came before it away. It might even beat Infinity War. - KeyboardHero

I'm not sure about this movie beating Infinity War but I'm glad that someone else likes it! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

36 Finding Nemo

hehehe such a cute film =D "fish are friends, not food!" - Jeheffiner

To be a kids film found it so depressing and then Finding Dory came out maybe it was only me but I found Dory to be the most annoying character in a kids film - mickyc

In 20 years this movie will be a CLASSIC, love this movie

Just keep swimming just keep swimming what do we do we swim where's dory?

Finding Nemo is better than Finding Dory.

37 Apocalypse Now

NO other movie compares to this experience! You are drawn in and become a member of the boats crew on a psychological journey of vast and hellish proportions. You are in the minds of Captain Willard and Colonel Kurtz. You will KNOW insanity. Too many scenes to list are forever burned into memory: Surfing to "Satisfaction", Napalm in the morning, "The Ride of the Valkyries" attack, the Do Long Bridge trip, the Water Buffalo's "End", music from The Doors, members of the Grateful Dead, all based on Joseph Conrad's masterpiece "Heart of Darkness. " See this before you die! - IgnoreThis

Such a crazy realistic film of those crazy days during Vietnam - Gkenna

I know that if I am going to watch this film I will need to be without interruption. This film engrosses me every time I watch it. Coppola was blessed with a gift for movie making. I would also add the documentary, 'Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse'. Just as engrossing and dramatic. - mgenet

I am relatively new to movies in general due to my age. I love them and I have seen many more movies than the average adult has. But compared to some film buffs; and I mean real film buffs ( no not you ), ones who would never dwell on such a site as toptens or even particularly care about your mediocre opinions on movies(sorry). I am nothing. That said I have seen the basics and know bad from good. I believe a film is rated on the feelings it gives you, and sure something like The Dark Knight has been filmed well and has good acting. But I felt nothing it was superficial and bland and left my feelings dim and cold. Apocalypse now on the other hand did not need to be analysed to be good like so many other films. Instead you just sit in awe. It is beautiful and no movie ever (and that is including the majority of this toilet of a list) has ever made me feel the way it did.

38 Rocky


Gotta love it, gotta love it, classic man.. - Leeps

Best screenplay ever and I was in the last Rocky movie filmed in Las Vegas in 2008 - Gkenna

Rocky is the greatest underdog story, and provides great entertainment. Don't bother with the fifth one, though.

Holy, this sky rocketed Stallone's career higher then any other actor. - Arfurr

39 The Green Mile

A gut wrenching, emotional, intense and tragic tale. This film will leave you breathless and in tears after one scene in particular. The one thing that really got me about this film was it's themes of life and ultimately, death. It's full of unbelievable moments but is one of the most true to life films in that sense.

Great movie, it has a mix of different genre's. Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Drama, elements of Horror and it is a memorable movie that is an amazing achievement!

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This movies covers a great variety of genus. It's funny, make believe, lots of drama, passionate, tender, yet filled with criminal actions. Excellent movie, it will be hard to beat it.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! Some scenes are scary some funny and also some really sad. This movie combines the best of every genre of movie and moulds it together to make a brilliant film. Tom Hanks Plays a brilliant role (as he always does) which makes the film much more enjoyable. the whole cast were brilliant. this is the perfect film! No other film can come close. If you have a spare three hours in your life just check this film out.

40 A Nightmare on Elm Street

Why is this below the crappy 2010 remake? This movie is damn near perfection. Creepy, intriguing and classic!

Best horror movies
1. A nightmare on elm street (1984)
2. Alien.(1979)
3. IT (2017)
4. Halloween (1978)
5. SPLIT (2016

Five stars for the First Nightmare on Elm Street!

I'm seriously angry that this isn't higher. Seriously. Why is this so low.

41 Jaws

Higher up it's fantastic it's a perfect example of the time that it was made it's the best movie of all time and it's dare I say it the best thing of all time

Jaws is the best movie of all time. If this movie is not at number 1 at least it should be in the top 20

Honestly one of the greatest and possibly the most timeless movie of all time! It kept people out of the water and it still scares people this very day! This was #5 on Empire Magazine 500 Greatest movies of all time!

A movie that to this day has proven that any horror idea can be good.

42 The Nightmare Before Christmas

The absolute best movie. The clay work was done so well and the story line is amazing. Phenomenal. - pepperfrost

People who say it is slow is because it was stopmotion moving the clay figures one sec at a time and taking photos of them making Shure that the don't get there fingers in the way.

Everything about this movie is beautiful. The only people that don't like it are the people who are scared of it.

One of the best Tim Burton movies ever made. I have loved it since I was little, and I still do.

43 Toy Story 3

Possibly the best movie ever made! It was nominated for best picture, but it didn't win which kind of makes you sad! It had a great storyline, because the preschool that they go to is treated as if it is Alcatraz Prison

so frickin sad I cried so much curse u pixar for making me cry so many times

I personally think that the toy story series is one of the most, if not the most classic series out there.

How Can This Be At The Bottom Of The List It's So Good - sidney

44 Big Hero 6

This a good movie I watched it twice, first half of the movie, the 2nd time I saw the hole movie - trains45

279? Seriously? This should be at least in the top 50!

Amazing movie that was better than what I thought it would be - Spongehouse

This used to be the best movie of all time in my opinion, but until Star Wars Force Awakens and Captain America Civil War came out

45 Guardians of the Galaxy

The perfect combination of heroes, aliens, daddy issues, humor and (of course) music! Overall, it was a turning point in movie history! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

I think that yes, it has a good feel to it and the characters are good characters but I just think that it was quite boring and that it should have had a better story line. So I give it 59%.

It's a culmination of all the things you expect to see in a movie, the drama, the comedy, the villain, the hero and it's just a perfect mixture of movie magic and creative screenplay. It's just awesome!

This film has great writing, acting, visual effects and character development! I believe this film stands tall right beside The Avengers as it will stand tall beside Avengers: Age of Ultron! - Suspect

46 Black Panther

It wasn't that great the cgi in some parts outside of the entering city scene where bad to laughable - Dvafan2

Overrated. But still a good film

This was trash

Beautiful costume/scene design, great soundtrack, funny, and a good storyline. Should be in the top 20. - DogmeatAndRex

47 Braveheart

William Wallace is the real man, I could never see a person who can die for his country and his love too, if you saw that movie hundred times I seriously take the responsibility in the and end of movie you'll have a crazy smile on your face.

All around great film. Has all the aspects: direction, action, romance, suspense, great score, visually pleasing. Although not historically accurate, it is based off of true events.

I love this movie, definitely my favorite movie of all time, better than Gladiator at least.

The best movie I had ever seen. Mel Gibson has the spirit, I how he does his job.

48 Avatar

Absolutely Amazing movie, Stunning characters, highly creative, & imaginative, with gorgeous breathtaking graphics, passionate story line draws you in, takes you on the most profound fantasy adventure of a lifetime, and makes you want to be a part of this MOST magical forest, and to help its inhabitants fight for their livelihood, to be able to live their lives, without the threat of heartless, dangerous military ego's, who's despicable, callous driven arrogance, only causes Horrific, & Catastrophic devastation, leaving only death, destruction, and complete ruin, in their wake, of what was once a beyond Inviting, spectacular forest, of caring, mindful beings, and culture, that MOST humans could GREATLY benefit by, and learn compassion, and other meaningful qualities that are truly valuable in this life, here on planet earth..

James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!

James Cameron has done it again - marytran1645

These people put a lot of brains and creativity in this movie especially the part that humans are hurting habitats and the aliens try to fight back we can see this in reality so it’s real and fake at the same time! Excellent

49 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

One of the best animated movies, but not one of the best movies. What makes me so nostalgic about this movie is that it, unfortunately, was the last good thing that came from spongebob. But hey! At least they ended the golden era of Spongebob with a high note.

This is stupid, but I understand why it's here and who put it here, and in the interest of memes and trolling, I hope it gets higher - VeritusEro

Best damn movie I'll ever see. Doubt anything could possibly beat it

Absolutely amazing! Not the movie, the fact that this is so high up on the list.

Anytime I start to think that Americans have finally pulled their heads out of some dark place, and once again become a nation of intellectual, thinking people, I need to remember this ranking.

How in the world, does this movie rank above the following- in no particular order: "Stand By Me", "Men in Black", "A Beautiful Mind", "Full Metal Jacket", "The Patriot", "The King's Speech", "The Bourne Identity", "Dances With Wolves", "A Knight's Tale", "Field of Dreams", "The Exorcist", "K-Pax", "What Dreams May Come", and these are just the ones I've scanned through on the list after The SpongeBob SquarePants movie. I realize now, I should not go to "" to try to find out what great movies have existed of which I have not seen. Thanks!

50 The Silence of the Lambs

How is this so low, its one of the best I've ever seen!

Every second of this masterpiece is perfectly crafted. It is the most spine-chilling, horrifying journey into the human psyche imaginable and it terrifies me every time I watch it. There will never be a better movie made than this one.

Disturbing insight into the mind of a cannibal1 Anthony Hopkins gives the greatest performance on screen and Jodie Foster the same!

In my opinion, The Godfather deserves its spot in 1st place, but this classic is at 38. This and other amazing movies such as One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Apocalypse Now, and The Shining are all quite low. I know that thrillers aren't for everyone, but I didn't expect these masterpieces to be this far down. Especially The Silence of the Lambs. It's not just a thriller. With the unconventional camera angles and carefully plotted out dialogue, not to mention the mind blowing performances by the actors, it's clear that this movie, and the book upon which it is based, has employed real psychology to get into the heads of readers and viewers. The Silence of the Lambs is a carefully crafted masterpiece and deserves a higher spot on this list.
