41 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

I used my vote on Gone With the Wind, but HOW IS THIS BELOW 2 TWILIGHT MOVIES? HOW? - 445956

42 Late Spring
43 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

One of my all time favorite movies

Another fantastic trilogy from the writer J.R. R Tolkien, though it is not as good as the lord of the rings!

44 Cry the Beloved Country
45 The Exorcist

A movie based on a book that was based on a true story.

46 The Golden Compass

36? How? It's one of the greatest films ever. Beautifully acted and paced, amazing cinematography, and one of the greatest movie characters ever. - naFrovivuS

This should be higher above the list!
