Best Movies of All Time


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

This is a great movie, but come on, it's by far NOT the best film EVER. It's a charming heartwarming story, but it's less artistic like Godfather and Barry Lyndon. - TopTenTed

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'm sorry, but why exactly is Forrest Gump at the top? I know it's a great movie and all, but it's not the best film out there. The Godfather is incredibly well-written with simply amazing acting from simply amazing actors (Marlon Brando and Al Pacino). Even Stanley Kubrick himself said The Godfather might be the best film ever! Tells a lot, doesn't it? - TopTenTed

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

The only movie better than this is Avengers: Infinity War and not just out of superhero movies, but out of all movies. This movie is definitely one of the if not the most thought provoking movie of all time. It constantly makes you question human morality and the entire last hour of the movie especially is amazing - it's all Climax basically. But before that hour it is all build up and Rising Action. The exposition turns into Rising Action quickly because of how intense the Joker is as a villain. Like I said, besides Infinity War this is honestly the most intense movie out there. It does not need as much visuals because it does a stunning job at everything else. AMAZING SOUNDTRACK. Always keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is not all action like The Last Jedi or what most people think of when they refer to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies(I personally loved that movie) but the action it is longer and better. Great characters(especially the villain). Awesome storyline, and ...more

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.

I'm pleasantly surprise this movie is so high on the list, because even though this movie is my favorite, I don't hear a lot of people that saw this movie. However, I think I know why. This movie is so well done that the few people that saw it loved it. - Eclipsmon

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...

No, I am your big fan

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.

Quentin Tarantino is the most amazing director ever. His unique non linear style in pulp fiction is amazing. Pulp fiction has amazing characters including jewels, Vincent, butch, and mia.

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.

Amazing. Not only is it filled with adventure, but it teaches you a great lesson about the past and moving on. I love Marty and Doc. Go you!

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.

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

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!

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!

This movie is literally the definition of epic

12 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

In your face Disney's dinosaur

This is easily one of the most important films of all time. It's a masterpiece. - EvanWellens

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..

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.

15 Titanic

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

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

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

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

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

16 Avengers: Infinity War

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.

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

This is amazing but endgames bad this should be higher and how does anyone like forrest gump?

Good movie, but damn # 17 as if is the greatest film of all time. That's outrageous.

17 2001: A Space Odyssey

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

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.

Very deep film to understand. Probably why it's not 1st.

Beautiful masterpiece, will be remembered in 10,000 years

18 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

Probably one of the most epic movies out there - Peppapigsucks

19 The Godfather, Part II

This movie is my bff

Best movie forever

Fantastic writing - ElSherlock

Just better than the godfather

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!

20 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...

YAY! The original six avengers coming together for the first time was very satisfying to watch: Captain America, Iron-Man, Hulk, Thor and the two other ones. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

21 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

I'm extremely surprised to see this movie this high. It's easily my favorite movie of all time, but people love to hate it. Everything about it however, is perfect. The action is great. The fight scenes are some of the best in the series. The dialogue is the best of the series. The emotion is powerful, and the stakes are raised. From the battle over coruscant, to Anakin and obi wan vs. dooku, to the tragedy of you know who, to the councils bs and a better representation of why Anakin chooses padme over them, to grevious and obi wan, to sidious vs. windu, to order 66, to the final climactic battle. Every one of these scenes is amazing, and the best one I didn't even mention. Its simply the two main character staring at each other from two building, unable to see each other, but aware of each other's presence, with tears in their eyes, unaware of what fate may hold. The soundtrack in this movie is easily the best out of all the movies. By far my favorite star wars movie as well as my ...more

This movie is great. It perfectly explains how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader. The drama, the action, the story, the CGI, everything about this movie is great. People tend to hate and crap all over the Star Wars prequel trilogy, but seriously, just because it isn't as good as the original trilogy doesn't make them bad movies, infact they are super good.

There are so many people saying this shouldn't be here but obviously, enough people love it for it to be this high - garlicboy

22 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.

It is best movie
Blouse it has twist at the end of story that made you think
That's story mind blowing

23 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.

How it this not higher my boi this is the greatest movie of all time behind the movie where lightning mcqueen dies

This was so groundbreaking when first released, everything from the use of flashbacks to cinematography. Orson Welles was only 25 or 26 when he made this and his entire approach was completely different from everything Hollywood was doing at the time. So far ahead in every aspect of filmmaking (it actually created a lot of new techniques in storytelling) that it doesn't seem to age...even after almost 80 years.

25 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.

I remember, as a young boy in the seventies, looking forward to the annual airing of this movie on television. It was like a holiday treat. This was, mind you, prior to the advent of the VCR. The performances were legendary and each one was deserving of an Oscar nomination.

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

27 A Clockwork Orange

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

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?

When I watch A Clockwork Orange, within the opening shot I am there. It holds me in its grasp with this peculiar feeling of warmth and animosity. I forget that this a film; because it isn't. It's an experience. The most pure definition of an experience I can imagine.

32 Schindler's List

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

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

This is my favourite rob schindler film

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!

33 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 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.

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!?

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.

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


Excellent marvel movie - darthvadern

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

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 deserves number one pronto!

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.

40 A Nightmare on Elm Street

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

It’s not terrifying to me but it is amazing and pretty scary

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!

41 Toy Story 3

Kind of intense for a movie series that was aimed at kids - GleamingShadow

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

Worth the wait - blackflower

Overrated - darthvadern

42 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.

Keep voting and get this number ONE!

P.S It doesn't matter about an actor's reputation outside of films. Kevin Spacey, Mel Gibson and Morgan Freeman are great actors and that is what you should recognize when you vote in rankings.

Somewhat like highlander and krull mixed - Lolboi

43 Jaws

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

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 the greatest movie 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

48 Scarface

Inspiration for Grand Theft Auto vice city - HaloFanboy

Its bull that the likes of Harry Potter are above Scarface

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

Definitely My favorite movie good all around...Nice to see someone with nothing go straight to the top. - Onetime

49 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!

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

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.

A classic should never be underrated
