The Top Ten
1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Not when their movies portray other nationalities as terrorists and bad people yet maintain a well kept image of Indians in all their movies through showing extreme patriotism or nationalism. Like why try so damn hard to prove a point like we get that you all hate pakistanis but come on guys, they watch your films and its bad enough that the world sees pakistan negatively and india has a large film industry. Be patriots without harassing other nationalities. This is what bothers me the most, other than that the fact that many movies and movie songs are plagiarised be it in the past centuries or recently.

Indian film Industry is by far the fastest growing industry in the world. Recent movies like Bahubali series have clearly shown that movies with higher budget are going to come sooner. Then definitely US industry needs to come up with great ideas of making good stories and everything as such.
Yes I do agree that US is far ahead when it come to the budget they invest and the number of screens they get world wide, with that they also hold highest grossing movie. But if you consider the development with respect to the number of time span. Indian film industry has grown in exponential manner. Indian film Industry has many internal industry Bollywood, Sandalwood, Tollywood to name few. This versatile industry within the country given you the diversity picture and also the movie buff in every single state showcasing the Movie industry growth in the country.
At the end I want to say that give another 50 years to this Indian Industry, you will see this industry being the epi center of ...more

Indian movies are amazing and have great stories and some of the movies are mostly based in history. Some indian films highly shows the culture and traditions followed inindia. Wearing traditional dress, jewels, nose piercing etc. According to me Bollywood film industry is the best. But that doesn't mean I am discouraging movies of other countries, they may also be better than bollywood. Because the people who have watched all kinds of movies have the rights to judge.

India has 5 major film Industries based on 5 Indian languages- Bollywood (Hindi), Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Bengali & Malayalam film Industry. All these produce some of the most amazing films in the world. of course some of them are bad too, but at the end of the day they all combined make dozens of quality action, drama, neo noir, thrillers, romance & every other type of films every year.

2 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

There is one reason America is not number one and that is because it's number one at a lot of things and other country's get tired of it so people vote for other countries. I've seen it one many lists in here. Look I'm not saying anything bad about other countries movie industries but India! Come on. Look I know they now produce the most movies yearly and I'm sure there's a lot of great ones but they don't have the world wide popularity American movies do. America is one of the few countries who's entertainment like movies, shows, music, sports, and even porn is popular world wide almost everywhere. I'm sorry but India is not on that scale yet they may screen in other countries and make some money but they don't bring in billions demestic and international like the US. Look there are many many MANY examples I could use right now but I'll stick with probably the most world wide known and loved movie in the world. So let me know when India makes a movie even some what close to STAR WARS ...more

I have no idea why India is ranked number one. Is this a joke? Have these people ever heard of The Godfather, Goodfellas, Citizen Cane, Inception, Alien, The Shawshank Redemption, Diehard, Rocky, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Toystory, Jaws, Saving Private Ryan, Back to the Future, Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, or Jurassic Park? All of them are American made. Hollywood is the movie king worldwide.

Obviously, the US comes in at number 1 given both the quality and quantity of its films up until the industry was totally ruined during the Obama era. It's only gotten worse since then with an endless stream of SJW shows and movies being distributed every day, but we can't forget that this is the country responsible for DW Griffith, Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, David Lynch, Clint Eastwood, Tim Burton, Ridley Scott, the Coen Brothers, and so many more. The only reason India is listed as number 1 here is because there are are over a billion Indians in the world and so it's statistically more likely that they will upvote their country ahead of the rest, but we're talking about an industry that sustains itself on mind-numbing dance routines and cliche romcom storylines stolen from American 80s/90s movies.

America is very best for movie production. Only one country made various movie types in the entire world it's USA. I am crazy in my nation. I love USA. We are not making 4th generation movie we are made high class, sci-fic and super hero movies. All other country love our movies. That's a victory to us.

3 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

While I think that the US deserves to be at the top of the list, France is a very close second. Cinema was born there with the Lumiere brothers, and every since they have been making great films like the The Rules of the Game, The 400 Blows, and Amelie.

France dominated the film industry in the 20th century, and has gained an enormous amount of appreciation for its classics ever since.
I will even go on to say that it helped to shape American film making..

How is Canada, Australia, Iran, Bangladesh, Italy, and Germany ahead of France. I mean I am sure there are great Italian and German Films, but ahead of French films.

Not only was France the birthing place for film. But it is also home to some of the best; Trip to the Moon, Amilie, Triplets of Belleville, La Jtee, Children of Paridise, Passion of the Ark, The Piano Teacher, Girl Hood, etc. I mean #5 come on!

4 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Japanese movies are awesome. They have movies in almost all genres. From crazy to emotional. The movies have proper direction. I liked almost every Japanese movie that I have watched. And believe me, I have watched a lot.

Japanese films seem to allow more freedom and creativeness follows. The character development in their films tends to go deeper.

Their films just feel unique...

As an indain, I praise Japanese movies most. They are the king of movies. Nobody can beat them even us also. Almost 70% of Hollywood movies are made in Japan. Remember that. Hollywood copies most of tthe Japanese movies and make them hit.

Because I love anime I watch the live action.

5 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. ...read more.

Whether because of or in spite of censorship and social norms Iranian directors have created more than their fair share of amazing character studies and allegories on meaningful topics. I suspect of there were more films available in the West from Iran we would appreciate that country's work even more.

Well, I'm Iranian and I like our movies and I'm also excited in Korean and American movies.
But come on! Indian movies? Are the the best? I've just seen 3 good Indian movies whole my life.
Most of them are stupid! Have you seen the movie in which a guy kills people with banana skin? Isn't it foolish?

No other countries could ever make artistic, and social realistic movies in face of censorship and limitation like Iran. Iran produces the best movies no other movie industries around the world are capable of!

At least they don't waste money making movies about flying heroes and killers who kill 100 people with a glock and a magazine that never runs out of bullet. Not to mention those Turkish style boring sex stories.

6 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

There isn't really a 'British cinema' to the same extent as a 'French cinema' for instance, because the British film industry is so connected with Hollywood. British actors, directors, cinematographers etc. make films in America and Hollywood makes films in Britain. So although it's harder to make a case for a British national cinema, it's pretty clear that in terms of the level of filmmaking, the expertise of film crews etc. Britain is unrivalled outside Los Angeles

James bond, Harry Potter, Monty Python, Wallace and Gromit, Stanley Kubrick's movies (Full metal jacket, 2001, Dr strange love, Clockwork Orange etc), Italian Job (69), Wicker Man (73), In Bruges, Dunkirk, Yellow Submarine, Lawrence of Arabia, Third Man, Paddington 1& 2, Chicken run, Water ship down, Pink panther (63), Breakfast at Tiffany's and Animal Farm (1954) are some of my favorite movies. And they are all British! Should be 1 or 2.

I'm sorry, is the scary movie crap from US better than Monty Python? James Bond? Harry Potter? British cinema is not nearly as big as the Hollywod and Bollywood but we make the classics. We have the best comedies in the world, although our action and drama industry is pretty good. Hollywood has quantity but no quality. We have it the other way round

Oh really? Fifth? Where we have some of the most popular franchises in the world? James Bond? Harry Potter? Monty Python? All of various genres and various talents in the making of the films. I would definitely say that we have some of the best of the best of movies.

7 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

Italy is the ultimate film making country. I mean those guys have directors like Leone, Bertolucci and Rossellini. Actors and actresses like Marcello Mastroiani and Claudia Cardinale. The best cinematographer (Vittorio Storaro) and best film composer (Ennio Morricone) are Italians. That should speak for itself.
The best of American cinema is directed by Capra, Scorsese and Coppola, and often stars someone like Pacino or De Niro. Italy, obviously

Definitely one of the best film cultures worldwide. What makes Italy better than most other countries is that they have both great art-films with huge historical importance with the neorealism films and also directors like Fellini, Antonioni, Visconti, Pasolini etc. and also amazing genre films like the italo westerns by Leone or Corbucci or the Giallo-Horrors by Dario Argento or Mario Bava.

Italy has gave us some good spaghetti western films. The best example is the good, the bad and the ugly staring clint eastwood.

Leone and Fellini alone. Life is Beautiful and Cinema Paradiso are amazing. Bicycle Thieves is brilliant.

8 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a landlocked country in Southeastern and Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkans. It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, ...read more.
9 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

I think German movies have better thoughtful stories with characters with more range. The characters in German movies seem to be many sided and not like black and white portraits in American movies.

The best known German films are nosferatu and metropolis. Who knew Germans were so good at filmmaking? These films are definitely worth checking out. Trust me.

Germany is home to Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, M, Nosferatu, Wings of Desire, Das Boot these are some of the best films of all time why is this only #6?

As a japanese, I love german movies more than this Hollywood rubbish.

10 Croatia Croatia Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (independence since 1991), is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean.

This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Denis Villeneuve: Arrival, Enemy, Prisoners... And soon the new Blade Runner and Dune. Should be higher with France its cousin.

Canada gave us awesome directors such as David cronenberg and james cameron.

Canada is the best and New Zealand they are the most popular countries that get films

13 Albania Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece.

Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims ...read more.

South Korea should be ranked no.2 with U.S taking number 1. The reason US being above is because of the advancement in movie making. South Koreans are one of the best storytellers in the world. India should be no.3.. there are good Bollywood gems but with all their crappy movie animations, ridiculous fight scene, copying and remakes I'm shocked India is ranked 1.

South Korea is now becoming better and better with the film industry. It is very exciting to watch and also dramatic. South Korea is also voted to have the most good looking people in Asia.

The fact that South Korea appears so low on this list shows me that not enough people realise they even exist.
Easily the producer of the best movies on the planet.

So South Korea is 11 and India is 1. This list must have been created by an indiian or someone snorting too many spices. The quality of south korean films are first class, definitely top 5!

Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan once had such good movies and were taking over the pop scene too. But because of idiots in politics it all went down hill. Pakistan since a few years now have made a come back and are improving although some movies trailers did not appeal in terms of the look of acting and the music, however I would choose drama serials in place of any iffy looking movies until I've actually seen the movie to judge. My support is still with the Pakistani film industry and its refreshing to see Pakistani movies to be honest.

Every year Pakistan DOES make AT LEAST one good movie no judgement we should be supporting it be as Pakistan film industry is growing and there's a niche for making impactful movies although, Pakistani dramas are already ahead on that. Pakistan makes good movies that relate to the army. Recently movie songs have been really good too even if the movie was not as per expectations I.e. Parey Hut Love had an amazing soundtrack.

Although budgets I guess are usually low Pakistani movies are humbly one of the best and should be recognised. Films like waar look nearly Hollywood produced! Then you have films like Karachi se Lahore which were just fun to watch and had good music, and normally Pakistani dramas own the best music in the entertainment industry. Also a cute animated film like Allahyar, everyone should give Pakistani movies a try

I've noticed that Indian people here turn blind eyes to anything positive achieved in Pakistan. Pakistans film industry was at some points going further than the Bollywood industry, their songs were also being plagiarized and used in Bollywood films. Pakistan can really improve but at the same time there's no competition going on and I am getting into Pakistani movies whilst really enjoying watching Pakistanis T.V. serials which seem to be more popular there

18 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, officially the People's Republic of Bangladesh, is a country in South Asia.

China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area ...read more.

It is crazy that China in #20, below tons of European countries. European films are mostly just lame copies of Hollywood films, whereas Chinese films are actually unique and different. USA and Japan should be at the top of the list as well. India should drop down to about 8.

Makes no sense at times

Zhang Yimou, Chen Kaige, Wong Kar Wai, Feng Xiaogang, John Woo... China has a lot of excellent directors. And also great actors and movies.
