Best Movies of All Time

The Top Ten Best Movies of All Time

Forrest Gump

My all time favorite! Never feel bored watching it again and again.

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

The reason why this is ranked number one for best movies is the same reason Bohemian Rhapsody is ranked number one for best songs. Just like Bohemian Rhapsody feels like a bunch of mini songs to make up one large song, Forrest Gump doesn't feel like one movie, it feels like a bunch of mini movies, meant to create one continuous narrative. That is why this movie is so great, because almost every major part of this movie can be expanded out into an entire movie. - scienceLover10

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

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

Christopher Nolan brought the full potential out of the iconic Batman vs Joker conflict. It's not perfect movie, but from a story-telling perspective it's a masterpiece with great acting. The camera work gets a little hammy its nonetheless filled with fun and visually appealing moments.

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.

No movie has ever hooked me from the opening scene and kept my undivided attention the entire duration. Great acting, storytelling, a few twists, and a wonderful ending.

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.

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

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 movie is perfect! CGI still is amazing despite the movie was 17 years ago. Soundtrack is phenomenal. The ending made me cry. In my opinion, this movie should be in the top 5.

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.

This is my favorite movie. Such a good and exciting well thought out movie

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

The Lion King

BEST Disney MOVIE EVER MADE! MOVIES NOWADAYS HAVE NOTHING ON THIS TIMELESS CLASSIC. PEOPLE WILL BE WELL INTO THEIR ADULT LIVES AND STILL WATCHING AND ENJOYING THE MOVIE WITH THEIR KIDS.

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

The best Disney movie with helpful real life lessons that is perfect to watch and learn from at all ages

The Newcomers

? The Family Man
? Black and Blue

The Contenders

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

How is this number 11?! It is way, way worse than any of these movies! Infinity War is NOT a masterpiece. It does not deserve to be here by a long shot.

OK, Infinity War is a great movie but it is no way the 11th best movie all time. In fact the movie is not even a top 50 worthy. Kids these days really needs to watch more movies in order to appreciate a real masterpiece. Infinity War is not a masterpiece. Its an enjoyable popcorn click. This is ridiculous. Same thing for Endgame and Avengers 2012.

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.

Titanic

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

One of the most underrated movies of all-time! As a service member myself, I can say that huge credit is owed to Stephen Spielberg for the realistic nature and accurate detail of all his war movie productions. This movie is no exception! The acting is fantastic, the movie is well directed and well written! The heart of the movie is the value of life and our actions. Everyone should see it!

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.

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

What the hell is Infinity War, Endgame and Avengers 1 doing in the top 25?! These movies are just average popcorn films. It's a disgrace to see in the top 25. It should be somewhere around 100 or 150. Kids these days...sigh...

hell it is terrible was so overrated my cousin and I watched it we couldn't even watch the first 10 minutes it was hella boring so overrated

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.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Best Star Wars Movie! I don't get why so many people hate the prequels...It shows Anakin's story before Darth Vader and Anakin is the reason that 4,5 and 6 happened. The Obi wan Anakin fight was done so well. No other Star Wars fight is even close to being as good as this one. And so many people think that Hayden Christensen was a bad actor but I think he did a great job. He played Anakin the way Anakin is supposed to be played. Dramatic, angry, etc. Luke is a great Jedi and all but I like Anakin's story more than Lukes. "You were the chosen one!" Even if Anakin is creepy sometimes haha - hollyeb13

Best movie of all time and that's saying something because I really love movies it's also my favorite star wars movie. The prequals are better than most people say they are. I think the first six star wars movies are Amazing. This movie has great action and drama. Just so good. I also really like Mission Impossible Fallout , Harry Potter And The Goblit Of Fire, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and The Lord Of the Rings The Return Of the King.

The best movie in the iconic star wars series. There is just so much epic stuff happening here.

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.

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

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

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

Stupid kids these days. Worst list I have ever seen. Already 5 or 6 Marvel movies in the top 50. What a joke.

I hate Tony stark. Good thing that arrogant man died. He never respected others and was always annoying. He also destroyed Spiderman for me.

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.

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

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.

This movie is about some stupid kid flying on a stupid broomstick. Crap movie

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.

Since when was Star Wars 3 put over this masterpiece and GoodFellas? This is like not putting LeBron and Michael Jordan in the top 10 greatest NBA players of all time list.

HEY PEOPLE THIS IS CALLED "BEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME LIST" NOT "FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME LIST." IN TERMS OF GREATNESS CITIZEN KANE IS THE BEST WITH GODFATHER BEING THE CLOSEST TO IT. THE DIALOGUE, PLOT, ACTING, AND EVERYTHING ELSE WAS SUPERB, THAT'S HARD FOR ME TO SAY. I DON'T BELIEVE IN A PERFECT MOVIE BUT THIS IS AS CLOSE AS IT CAN GET. ORSON WELLES BROKE LOTS OF RULES AND STOLE STUFF FROM OTHER MOVIES AND MADE ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES EVER!

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?

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.

Magical movie brings back childhood memories! The characters are very well developed and help convey the message that everyone is perfect the way they are

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

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!

The Shining

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.

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.

I have never seen the shining. I do know the line "here's johnny" but no I have never seen it. but I might now.

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".

Rocky

YO ADRIAN!

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

Rocky is so good! The first one is a little slow...But Rocky is a guy you just have to love. He's very inspirational and just an over-all a nice dude. And it's a classic! I think it's a lot better than Creed. "I't ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward! That's how winning is done!" ROCKY, ROCKY, ROCKY! - hollyeb13

Not the best of the series, but certainly not the worst, either. I think that can be given to Creed, which botched up "Gonna Fly Now". Creed II is better, but only because it's the Rocky IV plotline being recycled. Anyway, this is a movie that basically defined Sylvester Stallone, and produced five great sequels and two average spin-offs. - BonJovi17

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

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

Raiders Of The Lost Ark

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

A badass archaeologist with his whip and wits who can stop and beat the Nazis to death. - DuEades

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

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!

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.

Captain America: Civil War

a spectacular marvel film that claims a solid 8th place on my list

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

Overrated and awful

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.

Finding Nemo

Wow! This movie is one of my favorite movies ever! I totally recommend it if you don't like horror movies and like to watch animation ones. - CookieBoxer

It is also a very funny movie and has lots of songs in it.

Funny Moment: "Fish are FRIENDS. Not FOOD!" Wow hilarious!

Song: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming...I LOVE IT! - CookieBoxer

oh yes I love finding nemo! I was 10 when the movie came out. and I loved it's such a good movie. I think I'll watch it again today.

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

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.

The Green Mile

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!

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.

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.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

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

Five stars for the First Nightmare on Elm Street!

when they killed johnny depp I about died. I think that was the worst nightmare on elm street killing ever. or it could be do to the love that I had for johnny depp back then. oh that might have been why. ok but it was still bad right?

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

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 "TheTopTens.com" to try to find out what great movies have existed of which I have not seen. Thanks!

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.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is one of my favorite movies. I watch this every Halloween and Christmas.

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

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.

Black Panther

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

This was trash

Overrated. But still a good film

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

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!

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

The best one THE BEST ONE about two characters name hiro and baymax.

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

Despicable Me

My favourite animated movie ever. Despicable Me is a roller coaster of joy with a heart bigger than most films. One of those movies that really shows how underrated the genre of animation really are!

Probably the best "Illumination Animation" put out, but that's not saying much because I dislike the majority of their movies a lot. I don't agree with this being above 100 if we're talking about the "Best movies", but it's not bad at all - Phillip873

The best movie ever and the minions are so damn cute. This movie is just amazing just because of the adorable minions. I wais I could be a minion because they are extremely cuddly and adorable and their voices are really cute - Blubby1804

My second favorite animated movie EVER

Guardians of the Galaxy

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!

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%.

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

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.

Spirited Away

There is not even an explainable reason to why this movie is so fantastic, it's like magic - Lucaz23

The best Anime Movie Ever!
Visualy Stunning, moving, and a trip into old Japanese culture.

A film this amazing does not deserve to be so low. I mean 190th Place? Seriously? The animation is stunning, the story will blow you away. If you haven't seen this movie, SEE IT! - DrewtheGamer98

This is a movie about growth. you follow Chihiro maturing and growing, starting off as a scared child, becoming a young confident girl. and it feels like you are growing with her.
I beg you to watch this if you haven't already. its 2 hours that'll have an impact on you.
