Movies to See Before You Die

Before your body rests in piece make sure you see these movies.

The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption

Best movie ever

2 Shaun of the Dead

One of many great films from the United Kingdom, featuring one of T.V.'s most under-rated T.V. duos; Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Channel 4's Spaced!

The first part of the proposed Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy (Hot Fuzz being the second part), this movie shows the quality of British cinema.

This movie will change your life! Well, at least it did change my life. I know am in love with Simon Pegg and Zombie films!

Edgar Wright's film debut.

3 The Lion King
4 Up

Up is a visually and morally engaging film. Definitely worth viewing, especially in high def. The actors gave the characters just what was needed for the emotional attachment the audience needs.

Best movie that I have ever seen

5 The Wizard of Oz

Up?! Really?! Wizard is a timeless classic. It was great in 1939 and still great today, 2011. The movie encompasses every child (and some adults) imagination. You go on the adventure with Dorothy as she goes about her trip down the yellow brick road.

Dorothy certainly isn't in Kansas anymore, Toto, as she sings and dances her way across one of the most magical fairylands ever committed to celluloid. - thetopten

'Up' is number 1. Are you freakin kidding me? I love animated movies, but that is severely overrated. Wizard of Oz, on the other hand, is a classic.

If you haven't seen it, you haven't lived. - Patty_C

6 Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

Its just Star Wars, not "A New Hope" - FrozenHatingPokefan

7 Charlotte's Web (1973)
8 Hot Fuzz

Hot Fuzz is to buddy cop action flicks what Shaun of the Dead is to zombie flicks.

The second film in Edgar Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy

As parody movies go this picks up where Sghaun of the Dead left off both feature Cornetto gags.

9 Pulp Fiction

Tarantino pushed storytelling to its limit to create this movie of interconnected stories, starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman. - thetopten

10 The Fox and the Hound

The Newcomers

? Charlotte's Web (2006)
? Babe

The Contenders

11 Bambi
12 The Godfather
13 Saving Private Ryan
14 Titanic

I have not seen this movie before but I want to. - birdechosplash

15 Forrest Gump

Best film I have ever seen in my entire life, it�'s very well done and Tom hanks does a great job. I love it!

16 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
17 City Lights
18 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

A more entertaining masterpiece than Titanic by a longshot. Who doesn't like the antics of Captain Jack Sparrow?

You will always remember this as the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow.

Gore Verbinski started the franchise with this modern day masterpiece. The Rum Runners are the greatest movie fan base around.

25 Jurassic Park
26 Borat
27 Back to the Future
28 Non-Stop
29 The Little Mermaid
30 The Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger teams up with James Cameron for a career defining role as a near-indestructible killer robot. As spectacular as it is thought-provoking, heavy in both special effects and subtexts. - thetopten

31 Ali G Indahouse

I have to see this, but have never gotten around to it and I have to see it before I die or else I'll be unfulfilled.

32 Alien Autopsy

Fresh from the jungles of I'm a Celebrity: Get me out or Here!, Ant & Dec headline this feature length film.
