Most retarded movie ever

42 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.

I wouldn't say of the best, but the best horror movie

43 Raiders Of The Lost Ark

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

How could could this movie not be in the top ten it is way better then the other movies ahead of it this is the greatest movie series in the world!

The greatest movie of all time in my opinion! EMPIRE magazine named this the second greatest movie of all time. Harrison Ford impresses!

This needs to be number one!

44 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

This movie is considered to be in the top 20 movies of all time, and it is this low? You have got to be kidding, nominated for 14 oscars including best picture. It had some amazing scenery and visual effects and excellent performances from the actors.

top 20 for sure, this is one of the best movies of all time in my opinion and in everybody's opinion this website is so corrupt

The most amazing journey and quite possibly the greatest movie of all time if you really think about it! The greatest Fantasy of all time, nominated for 14 Oscars and won 4. Any website would definitely put this in their top 20 movies, I don't understand why it is so damn low!?

Top 5

45 Casablanca

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

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

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

Bogie and Ingrid. Here's looking at you kid.

46 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.

A masterpiece, it's an active kind of movie with killings in all but they don't really show blood and gore so it's really a great movie with great graphics - FerrariDude64

Love. The.Hunger.Games

47 12 Angry Men

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

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

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

58th is a joke. top 10 surely - lolsy

48 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!

Greatest Movie Ever.

49 Monty Python and the Holy Grail

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

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

Such a great movie the more you watch it the funnier it gets. Every scene is epically funny.

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

50 The Princess Bride

This is without a doubt the best movie of all the time. Disagreeing would be inconceivable. The word "best", well, clearly that word does not mean what you think it means if you don't vote for this movie.

Why don't more people know about this movie! Maybe it's too witty - there are so many cultural and historical references in the midst of the comedy that it has to be seen multiple times to truly appreciate.

It baffles me that this movie is so low on the list. While a little formulaic, this movie is extremely polished and has something for everyone.

A classic.

51 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

About a cowboy with a Space ranger, both friends with a trex, horse, cowgirl, little green men, dog, 2 walking potatoes, a pig, a lady named Barbie all going to a daycare which is actually owned by a evil teddy bear who runs it like a prison camp... I LOVE IT! - Pixtol

53 The Usual Suspects

The amazing style of director Bryan Singer is definitely shown in his debut film, which has so much style and full of twists.

I just saw this film and it's amazing! Really good, well made and the acting is awesome. Kevin Spacey is amazing in this flick. his character is great. Just... great.
- walter34

This should aso be voted for 'The Best Line In A Movie Ever'. Kevin Spacey says, ' The devil is so evil, he has convinced the world he doesn't exist' GENIUS is all I can say!

This is my favorite movie of all time. The movie is genius. It has one of the best plot twist of all time that you will never see coming, and even if you do know the plot twist this movie is so rewatchable just by how smart it is. And Kevin Spacey is amazing in it, in opinion it's Kevin Spaceys best performance by far.

56 It's a Wonderful Life

A timeless classic to be adored by all. "You want me to lasso the moon? ". A great romance and a heart warming movie for all!

This was a wonderful film with some of the best acting ever. How can films in the calibre of Dumb and Dumber be higher than this? In these ratings

It's a wonderful life is great. I don't even like the idea of having it in color. It's THE BEST in B&W!

Best movie of all time

57 Jaws

Honestly one of the greatest and possibly the most timeless movie of all time! It kept people out of the water and it still scares people this very day! This was #5 on Empire Magazine 500 Greatest movies of all time!

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

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

Get this masterpiece in the top 10!

58 The Departed

Martin Scorsese has perhaps directed his greatest film ever made! Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio give their best performance and no wonder why this movie won best picture of 2006!

The most intellectual insight, from two points of view, from an undercover in the Irish Mafia and another one inside the Boston State Police! Martin Scorsese directs a classic which brings a thrill and impresses all audiences!

Amazing movie. If you've seen it then you know it deserves better then 89

My favourite movie of all time. The acting is phenomenal and the plot is brilliant. A Scorsese classic.

59 Memento

Absolutely fantastic film, I was thinking about it for days after I first saw it. It will never get into the top ten, being 345th now, but it should.

Awesome film, I bet you, you will never find the screenplay like this. The editing is great. One must have to saw the film at least two times to understand it. Credits goes to CHRISTOPHER NOLAN...

Absolutely one of the best movies I've ever seen. First time I watched it didn't knew what the F... Happened... So I watched it again and realized that the movie is just plain perfection!

This at 68. What a joke it's top ten at worst

60 The Big Lebowski

More than just a stoner comedy, the Coen brothers were at their best with this film. Each viewing has revealed more and its honestly gotten funnier over time. I watch it at least once a month and cannot begin to describe how good it is. Hell, it even spawned its own religion! - nayrbsnilloc

Classic Coen Brothers film. Amazing dialogue and interweaving plots. Cult Classic.

how is this so low? it should be up there with the greats - Assassin

The best movie I've ever seen on so many levels
