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

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 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

I'm not even american, but MURICAAA

3 Denmark Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Danish movies are unique

All Danish movies with Mads Mikkelsen the bet Actor of the World.

The Scandinavian style is so recognisable and passionate!

If you haven't already, go watch the movies "Flickering lights" ("Blinkende Lygter").
It's absolutely hilarious.

4 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 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.

Well, Damien Chazelle for La la land.. USA and France 1st, followed by UK, Denmark, Belgium...

5 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. 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.

Great director like christopher nolan and ridley scott with a big set of ambitous actors and actress like christian bale,emma watson, and many others

6 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

Pretty much anything made by Ingmar Bergman is pure gold.

Ingmar Bergman, the greatest director ever. Enough said.

Ingmar Bergman is amung the greatest directors of all time, and he is swedish.

Alexander Skarsgård is a more handsome actor Than Mikkelsen.
He played as Tarzan in 2016
In my opinion sweden has more famous and vetter actors than the squirrel Denmark
Glory for Sweden🇸🇪😊🤘

7 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

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

No other countries could ever make artistic, and social realistic movies in face of censorship and limitation like Iran. Iran produces the best movies no other movie industries around the world are capable of!

Great movie industry.more Better than bollywood cinema

8 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

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?

9 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. more.

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.

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...

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.

Japan should be 2nd

10 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

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

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

The only bad movie to ever come out of Italy is animated version of the titanic where nobody dies at all!

Come on, Italy should be higher. This country is famous for his talented directors ( Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, Michelangelo Antonioni, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Carlo Ponti, Vittorio DeSica, Dario Argento, Bernardo Bertolucci... ), actors and actresses ( Silvana Pampanini, Marcello Mastroianni, Sophia Loren, Silvana Mangano, Monica Vitti, Franco Nero, Gian Maria Volonte, Claudia Cardinale, Alberto Sordi, Sandra Milo, Anna Magnani, Rossana Podesta, Vittorio Gassman... ) Their diverse genres ( drama, westerns, comedy, peplums, horror... ). The greatest classics and masterpieces of all time comes from this country. And don't forget timeless film-music ( Ennio Morricone, Sandro Brugnolini, Oronzo De Filippi, Amedeo Tommasi... ).

11 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.

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

Two of my favorite South Korean movies are oldboy and I saw the devil.

South Korea should definitely be at least in top 5.

South Korea should be in the top 5. They are the best.

Denis Villeneuve: Arrival, Enemy, Prisoners... And soon the new Blade Runner and Dune. Should be higher with France its cousin.

Canada gave us awesome directors such as David cronenberg and james cameron.

Canada is the best and New Zealand they are the most popular countries that get films

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

Country which makes worst movies

I kinda like Pakistani movies and drama serials but their need to be a little bit open minded like Indians.

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.

You should not say bad things about something like my country pakistan. you just like your people,ugly black and punjabi people of india where they are acting nasty

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.

I'm a filipino and I hate watching filipino movies, always stick to watching American movies.

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

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

I am Canadian and do not speak Tagalog but I think the Philippines have the best Romcoms.

18 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 .

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
Wolf Creek
Paper Planes
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

The worst of the lot

19 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

It's the Hollywood of the Middle East

The leading in the middle east

An Egyptain movie: Gods of Egypt the cast are amercan's and the armies are Egyptians, really.

Egypt is the leading (and by far the only) country that makes films in the Arabic speaking world.

Not only that, Egypt has excelled in making films that, in a very artistic way, reflect its culture and society.

Egyptian comedy films have a great sense of humor that is found accepted and loved by all Arabic speaking audience (even those living abroad).

The reason that Egyptian films have no world-wide reputation is because they are widely based on the Egyptian/arabic culture, and therefore not much understood by audience living in a different society or speaking a different language.

As the case is in Hollywood and Bollywood, not all of the Egyptian films are good. However, many of the Egyptian films are excellent, for example:

In Modern films:
- 678 (drama) ٦٧٨
- Sugar Murrah (romance) سكر مر
- Blue Elephant (thriller) الفيل الآزرق
- Cousin Girls (comedy) بنات العم
- Kit Kat (comedy/social drama) الكيت ...more
