The Top Ten

1 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

It's not my #1 but on my top 10 list it's number 4 - SimeOh

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

How is Forrest Gump higher than this? Forrest Gump isn't nearly as good as this film!

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

I wish I could erase my memory for this movie and watch it like for first time again. - DarkKnight2005

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.

Greatest among greatest

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...

One of the greatest movies ever made - SimeOh

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.

Overrated and boring - kaisietoo

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 Favorite of all time - westofohio

9 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

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

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

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

Honestly is a super-B Film! I don't care if at the same time this film looks so overrated, I simply don't care...!

10 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

'Terminator' is the 'Lord Of The Cyborgs' so it is.

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

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..

14 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 made me cry I thought Rose was going to die

15 Jurassic Park

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

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

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.

This amazing movie has the third box office record should be 1

16 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

This movie is a real masterpiece. No violence, no sexy stuff, just like a painting. True beauty - TopTenTed

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

The soundtrack is awesome!

18 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

Michael Corleone darker than the original MC

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.

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...

The movie is really the turning point in DC-Marvel Popularity after this DC could never makes as good films as marvel and this is the best marvel movie out there a true classic

20 Avengers: Infinity War

The Best Movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! NO SPOILERS!

Everyone knows this movie has a lot of sad deaths but lets not let that distract us from how great this move is. It does get dark and twisted to the point where it surpasses DC. This is the story of a Thanos, a villain that will kill anyone remorselessly if they even think about standing in his way of finding all six infinity stones and destroying half the universe. All the avengers along with other MCU heroes team up as one to fight Thanos and his army. The ending is something that no one expects.

This movie is not only full of action and planning and fighting, it also has a different type of mold that it follows. While most movies have an ultimate bad guy and guys just fighting him and they win eventually and one or two dies, this one has a "bad guy" that is understandable on his side, who wants a "grateful universe". It also doesn't end how you expect it to at all. And the problem isn't small. It's the life of half of the universe. It is full of sacrifice and choice, also emotion and battle. - EchoX0

I do not understand how anybody does not vote this awesome movie. It was the greatest movie in the history and I cannot wait for the second part of it. I am impressed of this perfect crossover event and every second I watch the film got me a heart-warming excitement. Definitely, was the greatest movie of all superhero or action movies all the time. I know the imdb of this film is 8.6 but I think it deserves at least 9.5. Watched it four times by the way.

Mr. Stark I don't feel so good.

21 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.

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.

Wow, that's really pretentious. You could also appreciate Kane's writing, the film's groundbreaking visuals and cinematic techniques, its usage of lighting, the acting, the theme, the twist, the moral, or the fact that this movie received a vast amount of nominations it gained. The idea that Citizen Kane has always been appreciated is silly. It's always been praised, basically since day one? - regularshowman

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.

Imagine thinking Avengers: Infinity War is better than Citizen Kane - errrr

22 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

23 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

I like the book more than this. - TriggerTrashKid

25 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.

The first rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about Fight Club! - Brazencoronet17

26 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?

An excellent movie that is masterfully crafted,shooted,has flawless performances and an interesting story that gets you glued to your seat from start to end.

I watch this every year of my life - jakeocchipinti

All toy story movies are fantastic

I love this movie it's the best Disney film to date no one does a child targeted movie but make it fantastic like Pixar does while movies like boyhood get praised for stupid things like showing what it's like growing up this movie shows what your imagination can do and that's how the movie was created

Toy Story is so good. While Disney movies are nice classics, they’re in it for the money. But Pixar is in it for the art of the films. Toy Story is my favorite movie.

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..

I'm a fan of the franchise, it's in my top 10 favorite movies, I didn't vote for it because my favorite movie is The Empire Strikes Back - PeeledBanana

29 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!

This movie is just epic! one of the best! Unlike most horror movies, this is actually realistic with some juicy live action gore which just adds to the epic ness - SSByesHotelMariono

30 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.

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.

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!

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!?

36 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.

I went to see "Apocalypse" with a friend in a theater when it came out. The film ended and my friend had to go to work. I wasn't going anywhere. I stayed and watched the whole thing over again.

Movies are movies. "Apocalypse Now" is an experience. - LuckyTown

Outstanding movie, my favourite of all time. one the that could be improved is more originality but other than that amazing movie!

Totally the best! Rey is my hero. She's a tough girl just trying to fight for what's right and find out who her parents are. Is her dad Luke? I'm so confused about that. Rey shows that girls aren't just wallflowers or girly girls who talk about boys. They're tough, sporty, and outspoken! That's who I am.

Should be in the top ten, behind dark knight, inception, star wars 5, pirates of the caribbean, lord of the rings 2 and 3, harry potter 3 and 8, and prestige.

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.

Bruh this movie had you crying over a mouse named mr jiggles, this is a masterpiece of a movie

40 Captain America: Civil War

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.

Looks awesome but why is the first two ahead of this? This is the best Marvel movie yet. Maybe somebody will put this movie on this list and why is it 0% vote?

How is this below the first avenger? - Triceratops

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

41 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.

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.

Somewhat like highlander and krull mixed - Lolboi

43 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

Wonderful! Honestly I think it's time for a remake! Ya'll can do even better! You missed some important details from the book and some of the deaths are poorly acted out. NOT TO SAY THIS WASN'T GOOD! IT WAS! But please make a remake!

44 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!

You don't think that Doctor Zhivago or The Avengers are "Real Epics"? - jezza0

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!!

Still the best. No film has had a bigger impact on the world next to Godfather 1.

45 The Lego Movie

A truly beautiful movie that takes the place as best animated film ever

A silvery underrated film that for some odd reason that dint win the Oscar for best picture.

Oh this movie... Wheb I first saw the commercial I wanted to see it but I thought it would be just for kids and get in the adults nerves. But this movie is REALLY good! It's funny, creative, and the heinous ending of how it was all the kids imagination!

good innu

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!

This is the greatest movie of all time.

47 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.

It was this or 12 Angry Men or El secreto de sus ojos...damn! so tough to choose. - KJR42

48 Beauty and the Beast

First Animated Movie ever to be nominated for an Academy Award!

Definitely not my favorite Disney movie but it's still really good - Ajkloth

Why is this not rated higher! It was the first animated movie to get an academy award, and the characters and songs are great!

Yay 43

49 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

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

Overrated - darthvadern

50 Scarface

Al Pacino is iconic. The Cuban in the suit is a phenomenon. A very colorful and comical crime classic.

Scarface was revolutionary at the time. Al Pacino 4 Me THe Best Actor next To Marlon Brando. This Movie deserves Nr 1 damn sure - copkiller

Favorited by many, this gangster epic is a top tale of how somebody can just crumble. Just remember when you reach the top, you can only come down.

Its bull that the likes of Harry Potter are above Scarface
