booklover1
These are the countries with the best movies made there.

The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Movies in India are of various languages and tell of different people. Hats off to he great directors like Satyajit Ray

Indian movies has great stories unlike Hollywood which just don't have any story..

Every film is good; no other film industry can provide such a diverse variety in theme as well as languages as Indian Film Industry. Their tickets is one of the cheapest, making the lower sections to enjoy it as well

Indian movies are best in all aspects... We don't need to compare with hollywood... There is a message in every movie... So inspiring and motivating... Our SRK is best in the world

2 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

There is one reason America is not number one and that is because it's number one at a lot of things and other country's get tired of it so people vote for other countries. I've seen it one many lists in here. Look I'm not saying anything bad about other countries movie industries but India! Come on. Look I know they now produce the most movies yearly and I'm sure there's a lot of great ones but they don't have the world wide popularity American movies do. America is one of the few countries who's entertainment like movies, shows, music, sports, and even porn is popular world wide almost everywhere. I'm sorry but India is not on that scale yet they may screen in other countries and make some money but they don't bring in billions demestic and international like the US. Look there are many many MANY examples I could use right now but I'll stick with probably the most world wide known and loved movie in the world. So let me know when India makes a movie even some what close to STAR WARS ...more

Perhaps not from a ratio standpoint - there's certainly a lot of crap that comes out of Hollywood - but as far as "the best" goes no other country even comes close. - dallinatkinson

How the hell is India above America, yeah India makes the most but not the best, America film industry has professional actors and costly films unlike India, this is the last top ten list I will see on here, people seriously hate America, the last list I saw had Canada above America in best music - JC123

The best action/adventure/cinematic films are American.
No sane person can deny that. I've watched movies from all over america is top class in the movie industry.
Actors and directors in America are all very good at what they do.

3 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

While I think that the US deserves to be at the top of the list, France is a very close second. Cinema was born there with the Lumiere brothers, and every since they have been making great films like the The Rules of the Game, The 400 Blows, and Amelie.

I love French movies so much. I think France makes the best movies. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

France produces some of the most genuinely artistic films in the world, though I do believe that it should be ranked below the United States.

Accidentally clicked this, but whatever. - zoocksycootserana

4 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Japanese films seem to allow more freedom and creativeness follows. The character development in their films tends to go deeper.

Their films just feel unique...

Japanese movies are awesome. They have movies in almost all genres. From crazy to emotional. The movies have proper direction. I liked almost every Japanese movie that I have watched. And believe me, I have watched a lot.

As an indain, I praise Japanese movies most. They are the king of movies. Nobody can beat them even us also. Almost 70% of Hollywood movies are made in Japan. Remember that. Hollywood copies most of tthe Japanese movies and make them hit.

India shouldn't even be in the top 10, let alone be #1... - DontTouchMyPogoStick

Country with dollars trilogy once upon a time in West cinema paradise bicycle thieves la dolce vita and many more the country of Leone morricone Fellini and many more must be number 2

Italy has gave us some good spaghetti western films. The best example is the good, the bad and the ugly staring clint eastwood.

Leone and Fellini alone. Life is Beautiful and Cinema Paradiso are amazing. Bicycle Thieves is brilliant. - DysenteryGary

Wonderful country, wonderful culture

6 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The language is Persian. ...read more.

I think Iranian movies are better than Indian movies! Indian movies are bluff! Don't believe me watch "a Separation" movie! You'll see the differences!

I can't believe that someone who understand the cinema put Iran in rank 9 far behind India and Canada and Germany

Iran and Italy deserve more: Rank 2 and 3

Whether because of or in spite of censorship and social norms Iranian directors have created more than their fair share of amazing character studies and allegories on meaningful topics. I suspect of there were more films available in the West from Iran we would appreciate that country's work even more.

We have some of the best comedies in the world

As a japanese, I love german movies more than this Hollywood rubbish.

I think German movies have better thoughtful stories with characters with more range. The characters in German movies seem to be many sided and not like black and white portraits in American movies.

The best known German films are nosferatu and metropolis. Who knew Germans were so good at filmmaking? These films are definitely worth checking out. Trust me.

Germany is home to Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, M, Nosferatu, Wings of Desire, Das Boot these are some of the best films of all time why is this only #6?

8 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. ...read more.

Oh really? Fifth? Where we have some of the most popular franchises in the world? James Bond? Harry Potter? Monty Python? All of various genres and various talents in the making of the films. I would definitely say that we have some of the best of the best of movies. - PositronWildhawk

There isn't really a 'British cinema' to the same extent as a 'French cinema' for instance, because the British film industry is so connected with Hollywood. British actors, directors, cinematographers etc. make films in America and Hollywood makes films in Britain. So although it's harder to make a case for a British national cinema, it's pretty clear that in terms of the level of filmmaking, the expertise of film crews etc. Britain is unrivalled outside Los Angeles

Most of stanley kubrick's films were shot in the United Kingdom so I guess that counts as a point for the country with the best movies.

What I find funny here is that both the Indian film industry (#1) and the US film industry (#2) are both so in love with UK film culture, and yet here is there inspiration sitting at #8.?

10 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea is now becoming better and better with the film industry. It is very exciting to watch and also dramatic. South Korea is also voted to have the most good looking people in Asia.

Should be in top 5. Korea puts a lot of money and resources into supporting its film industry and it shows. World class movies

South Korea makes the best movies in different genres. It should be in top 5

At the moment, south korea should be top3 at least.

I've noticed that Indian people here turn blind eyes to anything positive achieved in Pakistan. Pakistans film industry was at some points going further than the Bollywood industry, their songs were also being plagiarized and used in Bollywood films. Pakistan can really improve but at the same time there's no competition going on and I am getting into Pakistani movies whilst really enjoying watching Pakistanis T.V. serials which seem to be more popular there

Now pakistan make much better movies than india. Pakistan drama serials are decent from india not have much music and short episodes with their topic.Pakistan film industry is making good movies now a days.

It is going so fast hope it will beat Bollywood

Culture

Zhang Yimou, Chen Kaige, Wong Kar Wai, Feng Xiaogang, John Woo... China has a lot of excellent directors. And also great actors and movies.

It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Philippine movie is as cute as South Korean films. I'm Indonesian. I I'm a fan of FIL Movie

Philippines had unique movies because the movie is related to the culture, history and living...

Indie films and romantic comedy films are really commendable! Watch and learn!

I agree, They are good at making movies even drama or action

19 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Mad Max Fury Road is one of the greatest, maybe the greatest action movie of all time. Babadook is one of the best modern horror films of all time. The Australian film industry needs more support and money. Most Aussie films are funded by the government. We don't have big film production studios

Australia has made outstanding films such as:
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Crocodile Dundee
Gallipoli
Australia
Wolf Creek
Paper Planes
Kokoda
The Reef
Red Dog

I am Australian and have seen 410 movies yet I haven't seen any of those. - ParasN2000

What Australia is so underrated

Unbelievable,Thailand should be in top 10. I think Thailand has a lot of high quality movies which really popular in china too. I think Thailand should be number1 in south east asia.

I am indian and Thailand makes some of the best comedy movies, although it cannot be number one.

Its funny to see India is on the top of the list. Ladies and gentleman, this is called as Hypocrisy of ass hole Indians. They behave as if they have taken most advanced movies in the world.
