Top 10 Countries that Make the Best MoviesThese are the countries with the best movies made there.
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 entertainer in the world!
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 and then we can talk about them even being top 5 cause I would also say the U.K., Canada, and many European companies are close behind America.
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.
Japan has a huge capital city called Tokyo, other cities in Japan include Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, Nagoya and Sendai. It's close to South Korea,... read more
Japan produces the best films from 1950s to now. Japanese films are so different from other countries and its visual and emotion hits me every times. Many films from Akira Kurosawa, Yasujiro Ozu and Hayao Miyazaki are truly one of the best films in the world! (Like: Seven Samurai, Tokyo Story or Spirited Away)
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...
Iran is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The country's rich cultural legacy is reflected... read more
Iranian cinema changed my mind that you can make low budget simple movies without showing any skin and still create masterpieces just due to pure acting skills and direction.
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?
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
Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2. With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the 3rd most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City. The Capital and largest city is Rome... 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
Italian movies are so wonderful! They make great movies from 1940s to today. I love how beautiful their visuals and stories are! My favorite Italian films are Bicycle Thieves, 8 1/2 oder Cinema Paradiso
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.
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone... 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?
Some groundbreaking horror films such as Train to Busan, Tale of Two Sisters, Gonjam, The Host, The Quiet Family and the often-overlooked Whispering Corridors film series.
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.
Underrated - not as many films but a number of key classic horror and psychological thrillers such as the Changeling, Pontypool, Ginger Snaps, Viideodrome, Evil Woods, Cube, Shiver, The Dark Hour etc etc...
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.
I'd put this country as #1. Take moviemaking very seriously and almost always refuse to produce a bad movie. Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro is probably the best film ever made in history, along with a string of some of the best horror films such as The Devil's Backbone, The Platform, and The Orphanage. Good human drama movies like Roma, Volver, and the Motorcycle Diaries also abound
The country that gave us pan's labyrinth. One of my favorite movies of all time. It's really awesome.
All Danish movies with Mads Mikkelsen the bet Actor of the World.
Danish movies are unique
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.
Bangladesh should be number one.
Improving day by day
Maybe it's improving
Filmmaking at its very best. Behind Spain, it probably produces the world's best-directed films - don't stereotype them - martial art films are just one small genre among hundreds of others.. Too many films to name but check out by director -- Zhang Yi Mou films just as start, Jia Zhangke, Chen Kaige, Zhang Ye and Lou Ye
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
Does any of you know Vice Ganda? Even though Vice Ganda is gay, she still has very good movies like Beauty and the Bestie, The Amazing Praybet Benjamin and more.
Philippines had unique movies because the movie is related to the culture, history and living...
I'm a filipino and I hate watching filipino movies, always stick to watching American movies.
Ingmar Bergman is amung the greatest directors of all time, and he is swedish.
True - influenced a lot by Spanish filmmakers and can claim half of Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone. But so many more, such as horror classics like Tigers are Not Afraid and Cronos as well as some good comedies like El Infierno.
An Egyptain movie: Gods of Egypt the cast are amercan's and the armies are Egyptians, really.
Norway makes really great movies. Plus Norwegian women are gorgeous.
