Top Ten Movies that are the Best in Their Genre


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Misery - Psychological Thriller

Misery is extremely well-written and acted. It's impossible to fault it. - Britgirl

22 Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - Space Opera
23 Saving Private Ryan - War
24 The Passion of the Christ - Religious Drama

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.

25 The King's Speech - Biographical Drama
26 Se7en - Thriller

Can't think of any thriller movie better than this. - zxm
