What's this doing at number 3? This should be number 1! It is colossal! It also has great themes about love, friendship, and life which are executed perfectly.
The best one of the books, and the movies. I cried after finishing the book when Frodo sits in his chair and says,"Well. I'm back."
Agree this is number one
Well, durr this one gets my vote. It's well filmed, well acted, dramatic, and violent. What more could you want?
This movies is an offer we can't refuse. It should be higher on this list.
Why isn't this number 1 if you haven't seen this movie you can't claim to know movies. If you have and don't think it's number 1 you just have bad taste.
This one's a classic.
This was a great book series that was turned into an even better movie series.
Shouldn't even be in the top 30. Better than Psycho, Forrest Gump, and Gone with the Wind? Unbelievable
I read the sequel and watched the films also in 1 month.
The hunger games is my favorite book and I got the movie on Blu ray

This is my all time favorite movie basically it is hugely different than the book but there both fantastic.
It's actually a lot more different than the book. Kubrick made a lot of changes to it.
The author of the original book might not like it, but we certainly do
There is a book. And it's garbage.
There's a book? I did not realize.
This movie was AMAZING! I used to not care about it and thought it was overrated but now I see why people like it! The first movie and the sequel was good but as the actors matured over time it started to get boring like an average British movie.
That was the best one out of the series, and they look so adorable as children!
Based on a book that was based on a true story.
I didn't even know this was a book.
My personal third favorite movie of all time.
People, please! How is this not on the list!
