Best Movies of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Forrest Gump

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

The person who said Billy Madison is better than Shawshank and Forrest Gump yells and screams at their mom when the crust isn't cut off of their sandwich. - PorkHork

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

Just wait til all the idiot nine year olds scream about Endgame not being on this list.

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.

A beautiful novel about true people in prison and their dreams.

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...

Probably the best

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.

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

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

Everything about this film is perfection. Some of the greatest and most epic scenes in cinematic history. I have seen just about every movie in the top 50 and none come close to this. The fact that Forrest Gump is ranked #1 shows the kind of people voting on here, though... Absolutely no way that this movie is out of the top 5, but it's #1 in my eyes.

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.

My absolute favorite movie all time. It's funny, nerdy, and has a lot of life lessons that slip under the radar. You can't just watch this movie once, you notice something different each time! I've seen it so many times I can basically recite the whole movie. I just love it so much

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!

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

This is a good movie classic star wars is the best - trains45

10 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

In terms of animations this will always be the greatest. I also think it is the best of all movies ever.

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!

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.

Really cool sequel to an amazing movie

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 Avengers: Infinity War

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

Great way to end the movie with an amazing cliffhanger, an excellent villain and how it subverts audience expectations (whether you saw the snap coming or not)

I hope to see what happens

13 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

14 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

Absolutely the best movie ever

Jurassic Park was a game-changer for film making. It signalled a change in the way CGI could be used and explored its potential, and even 30 years later the film and its special effects stands strong against its modern counterparts. It inspired generations to take up an interest in paleontology and natural history.

Should be in the top 5

15 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

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

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

Matrix has influenced so much because of it's originality and unique style. Needs to be top ten people

18 2001: A Space Odyssey

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

A masterpiece.

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.

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 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 is one of the best marvel movies

21 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!

22 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 a good star wars movie I watched it a few times - trains45

I think this movie is a bit too high but I still like it.

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.

23 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.

I saw this movie at a very strange time of my life - emilandersen

24 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

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!

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.

25 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.

I'd give it 10-15 place. The only reason it is the highest grossing movie is because movies cost more now. But still should be up there - Unnamed Google User Remade

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

Avengers Endgame is the top grossing movie of all time and it deserves it. It ends the Marvel series correctly. Everything we wanted... except for Tony Stark dying.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

30 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!

Classic Period

This is the worst movie ever it is meant for 3 to 5 year olds

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.

31 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.

The most amazing war movie. It showed the horrors of war perfectly and the arch of a man. To this day this is the saddest and most beautiful film, ever.

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!

My all time favorite movie

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.

This moving is fascinating, I don't know why, but each time I watch this movie it gets even better. It might be due to the fact that there are so many possible interpretations to this movies, that the more I watch it, the more I enjoy it.

The mini-series was closer to the book.

34 Raiders Of The Lost Ark

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

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

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.

Incredible movie

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

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!?

36 Captain America: Civil War

Should be higher on the list - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

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

Kind of amazing - SimeOh

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

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.

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!

Not my favorite but I'm voting for this because it deserves to be much higher - EzP2

Great - SnoopDoggedyDog

40 The Nightmare Before Christmas

Should be in top 10

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.

It was slow
and weird

I tried to like it but I couldn't - GleamingShadow

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

Every song in the soundtrack is one of my favorite songs - DPH209

Gotta love that soundtrack.

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

Great movie! Gotta love Gamora! - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

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

If I had a quarter for every time I was channel surfing and stopped the search on this flick, I would have my own island. The suspense, the acting, the music, the reality that this could actually happen in you little beach front town. It is such a Summer time guilty pleasure it should almost come with its own support group. Okay, great... now I'm all horny for this film. I gotta go download this puppy. Later

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

43 A Nightmare on Elm Street

Horror in 40th? THEY SHOULD MAKE A LIST WITH BEST HORROR MOVIES AND ADD THE BEST OF THAT INTO BEST MOVIES

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

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!

44 Toy Story 3

This is a good movie I watched it a few times - trains45

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

Should've stopped at this movie, best ending. - Dani12

Best toy story movie - DarkKnight2005

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!

Biggest in box office lol.

James Cameron has done it again - marytran1645

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 greatest movie ever made. Not even close. Freedom!

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

How is this below Despicable Me 2 and The Lego Movie? - darthvadern

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

Its funny that this is one over cars and below elf and Lion King when this has some of the most stunning visuals and has a great soundtrack while having a great story but no Avengers is better right? RIGHT?
