The Top Ten

1 Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
2 Sherlock Holmes (2009)

I love this movie especially the restaurant scene where Sherlock meets Mary Watson
Plus the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law was great - Sa26

3 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
4 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
5 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
6 The Godfather
7 The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
8 The Godfather Part II
9 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
10 Captain America: The First Avenger

The Contenders

11 Saving Private Ryan

Except for a few technical errors that should have been obvious, one helluva gut-wrenching movie, and very well acted.

12 Lawrence of Arabia
13 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
14 Braveheart

The best patriotic movie ever made. Unfortunately, Gibson diminished the impact of The Patriot by basically remaking Braveheart set 4 centuries forward.

15 Gladiator

I loved this movie I’ve seen like a thousand times - Sa26

16 The Lone Ranger
17 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
18 Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
19 Crimson Peak
20 Titanic

Sorry, but this is one of the most wildly overrated movies ever. Di Caprio's acting was stiff, scripted and amateurish, and CGI left much to be desired.

21 My Fair Lady
22 The Sound of Music
23 Ben-Hur
24 Barry Lyndon
25 Schindler's List
26 Amadeus
27 Chinatown
28 The Day of the Locust
29 The Age of Innocence

My Favorite Scorsese movie.
It’s just a masterpiece - Sa26

30 Life is Beautiful
31 Spartacus
32 The Ten Commandments
33 Dunkirk
34 Public Enemies
35 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
36 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
37 The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe
38 The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
39 Wonder Woman
40 Doctor Zhivago
41 The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
