Top Ten Movies that are the Best in Their GenreBeatlesboy9
The Top Ten
I prefer The Godfather Part II and Goodfellas. But I definitely approve of The Godfather. - BeatlesFan1964
I prefer Goodfellas and Scarface, but I do agree that this might be the best mob movie. - Alpha101
The one item no one argued about. Wow. - LightningBlade
I was trying to say the same thing. I mean it's not my opinion that Forrest Gump is considered as the best drama movie ever. Critics choose The Godfather for the best movie ever. For me it isn't. I like Green Mile more than The Godfather. It's my opinion. I was trying to say it's possible that Forrest Gump is more popular for Drama movie. - zxm
Drama is not a specific genre. - BeatlesFan1964
Yes this movie is awesome. But usually Forrest Gump is considered as the best drama movie of all time. - zxm
@anonymous visitor - while it may not universally be considered the best, it most definitely is regarded as drama by the industry and by most intelligent people and those who understand the meaning of drama and the "drama genre".
Your logic of questioning the poster's choice of best ("by whom") yet proposing your opinion that it's not "drama" or "dramedy" seems severely flawed. - Billyv
I like the empire strikes back better most people do to
Empire Strikes Back is far, far better than the OG. Star Wars OG doesn't hold up quite as well as you'd think. Plus, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner are usually considered the best of the sci-fi genre. - BeatlesFan1964
All except for the fake pea-soup vomit.
I'm neutral to the exorcist. It was a good movie though. - LightningBladeV 1 Comment
I never finished the movie. But I think Saving Private Ryan is better than this. I think Apocalypse Now is more of a drama movie. - zxmV 1 Comment
This definitely wouldn't have been my choice but...you likes what you like. I wonder how many people would agree with me if I suggested Singin' In The Rain? - Britgirl
I'd go with Singin' in the Rain or South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. - BeatlesFan1964V 1 Comment
Gone with the Wind, Wuthering Heights, La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast OG), Vertigo, Say Anything, Beauty and the Beast (Disney), and Linklater's Before Trilogy are all usually considered superior. - BeatlesFan1964V 1 Comment
I think I slightly prefer Unforgiven, but this is my second favorite western. - Alpha101
"It's not even close to Tombstone?! " Don't know about others. But Tombstone was a piece of crap. - zxm
Best movie ever made
The Searchers - BeatlesFan1964V 3 Comments
While there may be more complex or edgier sports films, I can't think any of them can compare to the authenticity, emotional punch & feel good factor that this film delivers. - Mrveteran
Raging Bull - BeatlesFan1964
"Authenticity? " Seriously? The fight was fantasy-world, bout as believable as the WWE.
The most grand, epic and beautiful films of all time. It's definitely one of cinema's great films, and probably the best fantasy film too. - Mrveteran
Ever heard of the Dark Knight? Honestly, I liked the Avengers, but I never understood why people worshipped this movie. - Alpha101V 1 Comment
Misery is extremely well-written and acted. It's impossible to fault it. - Britgirl
A mediocre film whose needless violence hinders more than it helps. In a world where we have The Ten Commandments & The Passion Of The Joan Of Arc, this is nowhere near the best religious drama ever made. - Mrveteran
Last Temptation was an atrocity. Passion was a masterpiece. Shows how useless that website is.
The Passion of Joan of Arc, The Gospel According to St. Matthew, The
Last Temptation of Christ. - BeatlesFan1964
Mr. Veteran: That "needless violence" to which you refer is what HAPPENED; what WAS, as in, REALITY. If it's too much for your delicate sensibilities, then by all means, stick to G ratings.
Can't think of any thriller movie better than this. - zxm
