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
This joke is for those deficient in brainwaves.
I can name 15 better comedies/satires. In fact, I'll do that right now.
The Big Lebowski
This is Spinal Tap
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Royal Tenenbaums
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure - BeatlesFan1964
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.
There are better superhero films, but with great characters, story and thematic content, this is still one of the best in the genre. - Mrveteran
As a superhero movie, no. As a movie that happens to have Batman in it, totally. It's more of a crime drama. - BeatlesFan1964
Not really a genre but still it's the best movie of this type of movies - zxm
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
I think it's the best - zxm
Robocop - BeatlesFan1964
Also psychological thriller - zxm
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
I prefer Shutter Island but this is more famous and usually people choose this movie for best psychological thriller movie. - zxm
Vertigo is higher on most lists. Plus, it is the better movie. - BeatlesFan1964
Ha. No. - BeatlesFan1964
Eh, it was boring (my own opinion). - zxm
I know some people will disagree with this but I truly believe Inside Out is the greatest animated movie ever. - phillysports
Hell no. - BeatlesFan1964
One of the most honest and true to life love stories I've seen in cinema.
