Best Movies of All Time


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Forrest Gump

My all time favorite! Never feel boredom to watch 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

My all time favourite!

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

Please make 'Man Bat' appear in one of them, soon...

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.

Sema movie

Lost in Translation deserved the Oscar!

6 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...

Best Star Wars. Definitately could be the best movie of all time!

7 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.

V V Good! - EliHbk

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.

The script for this movie is great, the actors were superb, the plot was intruiging and smart and the pacing was on point. Their are many reasons why this deserves its spot on the greatest movies of all time!

9 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

Reveals the horror of combat

10 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...

I'm sorry, do you believe that because the electricity went out on the Titanic as it was sinking, that it also went out at your residence? Or, are you spending too much of your funds ordering mindless dribble from your cable/wireless provider while the electric bills pile up unopened on the mantle? Was your neighborhood attacked by power stealing Aliens?... best of luck on finishing your movie - Ned964

The Contenders

11 Star Wars

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!

12 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

Really makes you think. Are we in the Matrix right now?

13 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..

Don't know why this isn't higher on the list. Perhaps, it was too steep for some people to understand. But even the most irrational viewer would know what a masterpiece this is. Nolan's best.

14 Citizen Kane

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.

None of the other movies you mentioned are currently ahead of Citizen Kane on this list, and it is at #14 as of now, so while it is below where I would rate it all time, it has rebounded some. The last time I was on this site, I found Blade Runner at #224, so I'm fully aware of the shock one feels to find their most treasured films rated so low. Keep climbing Citizen Kane! - Ned964

Sadly, this movie has never been appreciated by the masses. In order to understand it's brilliance you have to really take the time to read about the history and cinematography behind the movie and Orson Welles. Just sitting down and watching it isn't going to cause people to fall in love with it. Once you learn it's phenomenal backstory, however, it is undeniably the best film ever made.

This list is trash. I can't believe this is number 19 on here. A lot of these garbage movies on this list wouldn't even be here if it weren't for Citizen Kane. It was a revolutionary, inspiring film that left a huge impact on cinema. If that's not good enough, it's also one of cinema's most entertaining films ever. If you find this film boring, check in to the nearest mental institute. Citizen Kane is a beautiful work of art you NEED to see.

Citizen Kane should be much higher than 15. At least in the top 5 in my opinion. Executed perfectly by Orson Welles.

15 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.

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

When Dorothy opens the door into Munchkin land... I still loose my breath

Absolute masterpiece

16 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!

E best performance I have ever seen from Arnold Schwarzenegger as he revives the Terminator series and revolutionizes robotic science fiction films.

THIS IS the greatest movie of all time. - celebfan3000

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.

Definitely a top 10 movie!

18 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.

Why this is in 15?

19 The Lion King


That's true, I'm 56 and still enjoy watching this bad boy, especially with the kids, and the kids kids. Everyone loves the Lion King. Scar might be the greatest villain ever, and the children all love the Hyenas, especially Ed. Great animation, well written and a great voice acting cast. It never grows old. - Ned964

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

So, it's kind of overrated. I was never the biggest fan of this movie. I find The Lion King quit boring, actually. 3/10. - lovefrombadlands

20 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!

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

It's a great movie, but not as much appreciated as its Legendary Predecessor

It is overshadowed by it's older brother

21 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!

Best movie of all time

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.

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...

I don't even know why this isn't on the list. This movie has been recognized internationally as the best movie ever made, not to mention the extensive budget used in it. Basically, it has a platoon of great actors. I mean, please: Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, etc...

Truly shattered the mold of superhero movies. - Elijah_Cook

23 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

A boring masterpiece. - 445956

24 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!?

26 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.

If you can make a movie about dinosaurs that awesome and believable then you deserve to be number one - lopedogg55

Hi, I'm Tom Jeferson and I believe that if the movie had actually tried to follow what the booki was, it would've been too long but still, the book had way better scenes like the boat chase. One thing the book had was more characters and Muldoon actually lived. While I'm typing this, the first Pirates of the Caribbean was better than the second, and harry potter was an alright book series, wasn't a fan of the movies. Though I concure, the genetics could be used to make cloned dino's, but their molecular structure would be too unsecure for them to adapt that fast. I doubt if in reality they could even breathe out air, if all of the parts were even there.

Jurrasic park is the best movie ever because it got 92% rotten tomatoes.

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.

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.

Mel Gibson is an a-hole but I love this movie. William Wallace was a true patriot.

28 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

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

This is my best film ever, the drama and the tragic downfall of Anakin and becoming Darth Vader is awesome and the lightsaber duels are the best in the entire Star Wars Franchise! Should be at least in the top 50. - jamie

Yeah... but it did have some AWFUL CGI for the time at which it was made. It looked blatantly fake, while movies 20 years earlier did what they could with their budget. (Like BTTF or Alien) Therefore, the fact it could not make great special effects with a massive budget is just disappointing. And don't forget, Episode III should be nowhere NEAR any of the original 3 films, and episode VII! - sweetbeef

I mean I kinda liked but it is nowhere nere to be deserved 30th place in the history of Cine

29 One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

Number 100? Should have been the number 1. This was a classic. A real, timeless classic. Every human being in this world should watch this movie. I love Jack Nicholson, this is his best role ever. Sorry the Shining fans.

all in all a very powerful film an american classic - heresjohnny

This great story was done as a small theater production in San Francisco. It ran for many years (10 or more) with Johnny Weismuller, Jr. In the Lead Role. Michael Douglas was filming Streets of San Francisco the T.V. series and saw the play... I imagine he thought to play the lead role himself. He purchased the rights and Nicholson was cast. Don't know whatever happened to Weismuller... Likely broke his heart since he'd been the soul of this small theater production for so many years.

Funny, sad, real. Watch it over and over. Should be top 10.

30 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

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.

Best opening sequence I've seen in any movie. Constant tears throughout the attack on the village scene. And of course, I love the smell of napalm in the morning!

33 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!

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.

34 Gone With The Wind

Gone With the Wind is the absolute best all-time movie ever made and it has the Staying Power to prove it. Most of the voters here have probably never seen it. What a story! What a movie! I have watched it many, many times and love it all the more each time. See this one if you want to see a Real Epic!

How can people say gone with the wind is not the ALL TIME GREATEST MOVIE. I am only 20 years old, but this is the best and always will be the greatest movie ever made. I mean you put fight club, and gladiator at top 10. Those don't even compare to Gone With The Wind.

This is the greatest movie & book ever made because it really depicts a greater understanding of the time during the Civil War and everything else rolled up into one!! It's captivating and thrilling for the soul!! My favorite of all time!!

O'Hara's character arc is one of the best Iv'e ever seen. Truly a classic.

35 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.

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.

37 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!

Easily one of the most overrated films of all time. That is not to say it is bad. It is definitely a good film, although heavily overrated. The first Hannibal movie "Manhunter" (1986) was easily superior to "Silence of the Lambs", but sadly, people kind of misunderstood it. People nowadays watch it to compare Hannibal's portrayals by the respective actors (Cox and Hopkins), and use them as a major criterion in comparing both films. But what these viewers must understand, is that Hannibal was just a minor character in Manhunter. It was more an intense character study of Will Graham and Francis Dolarhyde, rather than a dracula exhibit for Hannibal Lecter.
"SOTL" was just another thriller (although a good one) with that distinctive Hollywood air. "Manhunter", though, was a genuine auteur's film, much more cerebral and involving, with a personality of it's own and an immersive experience "SOTL" could never offer.
"Manhunter" is, and always will be, the greatest Hannibal adaptation ...more - gaali121

38 Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Sensational conclusion to the greatest franchise of all time. This movie was an amazing hit and it will always be in our heart, also just plain awesome! "IT'S A TRAP! " is the best quote from Admiral Ackbar

Most definitely better than a lot of movies on this list and is thrilling as anything. The most amazing Sci Fi of all time, but had a stupid ending!

It was the weakest of the trilogy. But it still is an amazing movie to watch over and over again, great action and an unforgettable conclusion.

Anything Star Wars is BRILLIANT! - riki1234

39 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.

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?

Excellent film with its own vocabulary and alternate reality.

43 The Breakfast Club

This is my all-time favorite movie. It was in a way the beginning of the high school movie genre. It shows five very different students, united over the same cause; a terrible principal. The letter they gave him will be one of the greatest letters. Ever. It has its funny parts, its dramatic parts and too much to list.

I love this movie it tells the truth about how teenagers are seprated in high school.. in their own groups. How the friends from Jr. High just left you? and you all got your new friends... - kobebryant

FANTASTIC movie! Judd Nelson and Molly RIngwald's little relationship that started to form was the most adorable thing ever. When she gave him the earring that he was slamming earlier and he puts it in... GENIUS. I really wish that there were a sequel!

Great movie. One of my top 10 favorites. - Metarock

44 Alien

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!

Startede horror

If you can name a "classic" movie more quotable than this... Here's looking at you kid.

Come on you young people... Get some culture! I seen this movie when I was twenty, and no I am not that old. I seen it at a Film Festival. It has intrigue, humour, great acting and it's a fantastic story. Please take the time and watch it! Then you will understand it should be in the TOP TEN (at least, if not Number 1).

How can a movie named after one of the great lines from this movie be ranked at 62, while the real deal is at 78? The lines from this movie alone put it in the top ten! Play it again, Sam. We'll always have Paris. Of all the gin joints in the world, she has to walk into this one. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. And yes, round up the usual suspects! This movie has EVERYTHING, move it up!

This should be number 1 see this movie and you will agree

46 Jaws

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!

This is within the top 5 movies of all time. It has scared people all around the world and is one of the most respected Horror/Thrillers. How can you forget such memorable performances, quotes and exceptional special effects

The greatest thriller of all time! I am not kidding, this movie really did scare people and was the ultimate Aqua Horror!

How is this not at the top! Hands down favourite movie of all time.

47 Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Come on people vote for the Holy Grail and keep it above that awful crap twilight. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

This movie is a classic! It is such a funny movie. The acting in it is superb and the plot and script are well put together. The budget for this was so low at the time, this makes it even more astounding to see what the production team have done with the movie to give it such a good result. Come on people, get this movie further up the list! R

I'm glad to see to all these favorable comments attached to "Holy Grail" and frankly I'm a bit surprised. I'm old enough to have seen this in a near empty theatre shortly afte its release. I found it hilarious then and still laugh when I see it now, even though I have many of the lines memorized. I don't remember many of my friends liking it, but that was fine because I could sort out the really cool people when they did like it. The funny thing is my teenage daughter and all her nerd friends love this movie. They have parties centered around watching this film, it's so cute. It's by far my favorite comedy and I'm glad I could share it with my daughter. Now, RUN AWAY! - Ned964

Tis a flesh wound. Nothing will stop this movie from being my all-time favorite comedy. - Ozzy68

48 The Hunger Games

I like how the intelligent comment has 0 likes, but the ones where people randomly use caps lock and say mostly unintelligible gibberish have several likes apiece - FaZeCain

Not only is it a great movie all in itself, but it conveys an important message. It teaches you to fight for what you believe in and that The corrupting force of power and privilege, the inhumanity of the mob, and how both conspire to make people do the unthinkable.

I love the hunger games but it kinda sad you should watch it please vote for the hunger games please THANK YOU IF you ARE GONNA VOTE FOR THE HUNGER GAMES

This should be in the top three! - thalia_thatsme

49 12 Angry Men

In every single way, the most interesting film of all time! It should be in everyone's top ten movies of all time. On IMDb this is rated 8.9/10 and is number 6 on the greatest films of all time, at least it has recognition on that site, not like here!

Agreed, although I find IMDb not a very good representation of my taste in film. I would just add this film rates very high on any list of greatest films I do respect - Ned964

This drama setting in a jury room is one of the powerful dramas every. Shows you how one man can help save a persons life. I never get tired of watching this movie.

Definitely the greatest classic of all time. It is unique in its own way, and the acting was so incredible in this movie!

So insightful, taught me a lot about people judgments! definitely one of the must seen movies!

50 Gladiator

Maximus to Commodus: "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

Most bad ass quote of all time

This has to have the best series of fighting scenes ever, and just the story alone is a really good story, why its not at the top I don't know.

Russel Crowe did great acting
And its one of my best movie
He didn't gave up because he loved his family and he wanted revenge

Excellent in every way.
