Top 100: Best Movies (of All-Time)

30. City of God (2002)

City of God (2002)

Logline: A tale that spans from the 60’s to the 1980’s in Rio de Janeiro, City of God is about two violent gangs that fight for control of the streets of Rio, much to the dismay of a good-natured photographer, Rocket. 

Memorable Moments: The “farewell” party for Benny, highly reminiscent of the wedding scene from The Godfather, is pretty epic all by itself.

Why People Love It: Besides its, ostensibly, highly ironic title, CoD is one of the rare flicks—with startling kid-on-kid, gratuitous gang violence—that’s almost impossible to pull away from once you’ve gotten only 10 to 20 minutes into it.

Best Quote: Buscape (Alexandre Rodrigues): “It was like a message from God: “Honesty doesn’t pay, sucker.”

29. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

Logline: A miserable businessman, George Bailey (James Stewart) is visited by an angel, who paints a sobering picture for him that illustrates what the lives of those around George would have looked liked had he never been born.

Memorable Moments: The collection of scenes where Clarence (Peter Travers), the fledgling angel, shows George what Bedford (“Potterville” in the imaginery) what would have come of the small town had he ceased to exist. 

Why People Love It: It is, without doubt, very reminiscent of A Christmas Carol, and every bit as memorable and timeless.

Best Quote: Clarence (Henry Travers): “You’ve been given a great gift, George: A chance to see what the world would be like without you.”

28. Amélie (2001)

Amélie (2001)

Logline: Amelie (Audrey Tautou) chronicles the life of Amelie Poulain: A French girl whose upbringing included general isolation from the world. Later in life, Amelie decides to bestow “love and beauty” upon all those around her, while finding her one true love.

Memorable Moments: In a scene largely representative of the greater movie, Amelie stumbles upon a box of old toys in her home. Finding and delivering it to its rightful owner, Mr. Bretodeau, he experiences a rush of poignent, youthful memories.

Why People Love It: Anyone who’s seen and even remotely liked movies such as Chocolat or Run Lola Run (Germany): This is your movie.

Best Quote: Narrator (André Dussollier): “Amelie has a strange feeling of absolute harmony. It’s a perfect moment. A soft light, a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city. A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her.”

27. Taxi Driver (1976)

Taxi Driver (1976)

Logline: A product of the Vietnam War, Travis Bickle, who is very emotionally unstable at best, takes a gig as a taxi driver. However, once he’s long enough exposed to the seediness and decay of the city, Bickle tries to protect a teenage prostitute—while struggling to contain his violent tendencies.

Memorable Moments: When Travis “rescues” the young prostitute, Iris (Jodie Foster), from the clutches of a pimp named ‘Sport’ (Harvey Keitel). 

Why People Love It: Taxi Driver is an exceptional tribute to the study of mental/emotional isolation, extreme paranoia and deviant desire; it’s become symbolic of our violence-prone, hedonistic-driven society.

Best Quote: Travis Bickle (De Niro): “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Well, who the hell else are ya talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me? Well, I’m the only one here. Who the f*** do you think you’re talkin’ to?”

26. The General (1927)

The General (1927)

Logline: Johnnie (Buster Keaton) pursues his precious locomotive, The General, and its passenger—Johnnie’s love, Annabelle Lee—when its stolen by Union spies.  

Memorable Moments: When Annabelle is mistakenly informed by her brother that Johnnie wasn’t “even in line” to enlist in the Confederate army, to which Annabelle replies “He’s a disgrace to the South.” 

Why People Love It: It’s one of the more ‘lovable’ of the silent-era movies and because of the exciting (at least at the time) action aboard The General.

Best Quote: Johnnie: “If you lose this war don’t blame me.”

 25. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Logline: Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling (Foster) is charged with hunting down serial killer and transsexual-wannabe ‘Buffalo Bill’. But in order to penetrate the mind of a serial killer in order to anticipate his next move, young Starling must make contact with evil incarnate: Hannibal ‘The Cannibal’ Lecter.

Memorable Moments: Who can forget the scene where Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb demands of young Catherine, who is being held in a deep, indoor well, to “put the f***ing lotion in the basket”?

Why People Love It: Because it’s the very epitome, the benchmark of what a crime-thriller should feel and look like: Dark, gritty, unremorseful, purposeful.

Best Quote: Lecter (Hopkins): “A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”

24. The Usual Suspects (1995)

The Usual Suspects (1995)

Logline: The sole survivor of a boat (carrying many criminals) explosion misleadingly recounts his crimes with five other career criminals. Hence a bizarre, unpredictable series of plot twists (revolving around a mysterious, absolutely fearless Keyser Soze) unravels.

Memorable Moments: [Possible spoiler!] The final scene where Verbal Kint walks out of the police station, near crippled, and reveals who is really is. 

Why People Love It: The Usual Suspects, in perhaps a nod to the neo-noir movement spearheaded by Tarantino, is easily one of director Bryan Singer’s most coveted, iconic crime thrillers.  

Best Quote: Roger ‘Verbal’ Kint (Kevin Spacey): “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

23. Sunset Blvd. (1950)

Sunset Blvd. (1950)

Logline: A reclusive, self-absorbed, has-been actress (Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond), dreams of returning to the spotlight in Hollywood with her ex-husband and director, Max. After developing a relationship with Joe Gillis, a wannabe writer, things soon turn deadly. 

Memorable Moments: When Norma discovers that Joe, who is not only seeing her, but also a younger woman (Betty). Norma, needless to say, is not happy and things turn…well, dangerous.

Why People Love It: Possibly, it’s because the famous quote below sums up the vanity and manipulative attributes of the movie’s lead character.

Best Quote: Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson): “All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”

22. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) 

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)

Logline: Jack Ripper (Sterling Hayden) has gone a bit crazy completely certifiable, independently authorizing the bombing of Russia in fear that Communists are trying to kill Americans. But as other officials scramble to recall the catastrophic mission, Russia prepares its ultimate weapon, the Doomsday Machine.

Memorable Moments: The dialogue between the Soviet Premier and U.S. President. President Muffley, “Hello Dimitri…you know how we’ve always talked about…something going wrong with the hydrogen bomb? Well, now…um…one of our base commanders…he’s gone a little funny in the head and went and did a silly thing, he ordered his planes to attack your country.” Priceless moment.

Why People Love It: It is, among a long list of other iconic movies by Stanley Kubrick, one of the most memorable films—portraying a globally-nightmarish event (nuclear annihilation) in a brilliant, hilarious manner. 

Best Quote: Dr. Strangelove/President Muffley (Peter Sellers): “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!”

21. Psycho (1960)

Psycho (1960)

Logline: After making off with $40k from her employer, Marion (Janet Leigh) embarks for California to begin a ‘new life’. Mid-trip, she stops for some R & R at the Bates Motel, operated by Norman Bates—a grown man seemingly way too fond and obedient of his mother.

Memorable Moments: Obviously, the most memorable scene not only from the movie, but perhaps from all Hitchcock films combined, is the shower scene.  

Why People Love It: Because, simply said, it’s a prime testament to story-telling genius that Hitchcock was and still is. Oh, and because Norman Bates pins down the role of momma’s-boy psycho every bit as well as Hannibal did ‘The Cannibal’. 

Best Quote: Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins): “A boy’s best friend is his mother.”

    I think the most memorable and loved line of movie 79. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 is “NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH”

    • Michael Bock

      I honestly don’t remember that line from HP, but then again, I had to step out to the restroom twice during the picture, LoL.

    • Emlyloo

      I have to agree. That was a great line.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000901321821 annayoung

      I will totally agree with that!! :)
      One of my favorite lines from the HP movies. :)
      I also like: “Even in the wizarding world, hearing voices isn’t a good sign.” And I think it was from HP 4 (5?…not really sure now…), but the scene where Hermione is trying to warn Harry about love potions in the library and he’s starting to get all googly eyed about one potential potion user and Hermione smacks him with her newspaper several times.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1186211755 rachelsmith

        That’s from the second one, chamber of secrets, when Harry hears the basilisk moving through the walls of hogwarts.

    • Batched

      While I love that line, I felt the most memorable was, “Well of course this is happening in your head, Harry. Why on Earth should that mean that it isn’t real?”

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=523088720 alexauner

    Must not be much of a Tom Cruise fan…

    • JABacchetta

      He’s got a few good movies, but you could easily make a list of 200, even 300 great movies. It’s hard to cover them all in a top 100.

      • Michael Bock

        Very true Jason. And people tend to forget that judging the ‘worthiness’ of movies is—while you can be objective as possible, quantifying those movies that have the most support among moviegoers and critics—still a largely subjective endeavor.

        • kentjames81

          I loved your list sire. And although I think some are too high, not included etc., I commend you on not making 90 percent of your list movies before 1960’s. I always think that is a cop out and close minded. I would put Schindler’s List at number one though. The story telling, character development, themes, imagery, and so much more are just perfect. Also, I love Chinatown, and it’s on a lot of top 100’s, but I understand why it’s not why it’s not on here. It blows my mind how many people haven’t seen it or don’t really like it.

    • AbsMcPhee

      I am glad there are no Tom Cruise movies in the list. That man and his “short man syndrome ego” ruin movies. Great list, no musicals though if i am not mistaken?

      • http://www.facebook.com/kelli.pendleton kellipendleton

        Wizard of Oz and Singin’ in the Rain.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ohsoclassy kellylehr

        Lion King should surely be higher on the list, don’t you think? ;) But that’s just me. As you’ve pointed out, everyone is entitled to their opinions. As for Spirited Away, it is an amazing movie, but it’s surely not the best one by Miyazaki! You should definitely look into his other ones. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/Snedden27 sneddengonsalves

    Why is inception in the list?,according to me its only a one-time-watch,great disappointment for me from Leonardo :(

    • Michael Bock

      You’re certainly entitled to not like it, Sneddengonsavles, but moviegoers/film critics almost overwhelmingly herald the movie as one of, at least, the best movies of the 21st-century.

      • http://www.facebook.com/benpatmiller benmiller

        “It got good reviews, so it must be good.” Like Avatar? Sorry, but most people are idiots, so just because most people liked something, doesn’t mean it wasn’t idiotic.

        South Park was dead-on about Inception when they pointed out that a convoluted story doesn’t make for a good one. I remember seeing that crap in theaters after being told, “You have to see it twice,” and leaving thinking, “Why the fuck would I need to watch that again?” There was nothing hard-to-understand about the story; it was just very convoluted, so Average Joe Dumbfuck couldn’t figure it out. That doesn’t make a movie good. Period. End of discussion.

        If that’s confusing, here’s a quote from Metalocalypse that will hopefully put it into perspective:
        Grishnack: “Alright, dildoes, listen up! I’ve been fucking over fathead celebrities since you were all shitting in diapers! Now, this movie, it’s a 500 million dollar shit sandwich, and you’re all gonna take a bite and you’re gonna smile cause you love how it tastes! Got it? Now you go out there, your-your adoring public… I wrote all the reviews! Nobody knows what a good movie is anymore! Just shut up and smile! Remember: shit sandwich, tastes great! Now go!”

        And man, with movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on the list (you might as well have put them both as one, because there isn’t even one hour-and-a-half movie’s worth of actual plot between the two of them), and Pirates of the Caribbean, a film that was carried entirely by Depp’s portrayal of Jack Sparrow, you clearly are a connoisseur of shit sandwiches!

        Seriously, Ratatouille? Horrendously unentertaining when compared with most of Pixar’s other works. Gladiator? Always reminds me of how the Academy showed their racism by giving best picture to that unoriginal piece of shit instead of the real, by far, best film that year, Crouching Tiger, which you’ve somehow omitted from your list despite the fact that any, ANY, good critic would put it on, at least, a top 100 list, if not the top 10.

        Plus, you have a single anime, Spirited Away. Just one?! Are you fucking serious? Most of the works of Hayao Miyazaki alone would make a top 100 list of anyone who really appreciates movies. Branching out, the Studio Ghibli film Grave of the Fireflies is in-fucking-credible. Then, there’s the anime staples of Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Ghost in the Shell, all of which belong on a top 100 films list. The fact that these are omitted tells me you haven’t seen them (and the fact that Spirited Away isn’t tells me you just eat what you’re told to, since that’s the one Disney really heavily marketed). And the fact that you haven’t seen them is a pretty strong indicator that you don’t really know movies, and your credibility as an appreciator of film is very weak.

        And seeing your replies, I can guess you want to say something like, “Well, if you have a problem with it, make your own.” Well guess what! I’m not that stupid, to half-ass something and put it out there, with my name on it, as if it’s something I should be proud of.

        • JABacchetta

          Did you really just lose your shit over an article titled “Top 100: Best Movies (of All-Time)”? Not an article about cancer, your mother, or even politics… but movies.

          And the fact that you’re sitting on your high horse while throwing out quotes that start with “Alright, dildoes, listen up!” makes your comment even that more entertaining.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542890995 josteinbasma

    Where is Ben Hur? Surely a top 100-movie? I would even say a top 10…

    • Michael Bock

      I concur that Ben Hur, considering the plethora of early-to-mid 20th-century films on this list, should’ve been somewhere in the top 100 (considering its immense impact on the then-fledgling movie industry). But, ALAS, there are SO many other great movies that could have easily made this list, but we were limited to only 100.

  • colinchatham

    Wow. This list is completely ridiculous.

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks for your opinion :-)

      • http://www.facebook.com/stevie.schreiber stevieschreiber

        I can’t figure out how to post….but Wall-E does not watch Gone with the Wind, he watches Hello Dolly.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brandonio.granger brandoniogranger

    You totally forgot The Outsiders! It is thee best movie of all time!

    • Michael Bock

      LoL, next time!

  • http://www.facebook.com/crockerh henrycrocker

    i dont know what the hell is wrong with whoever wrote this list. for the most part the films included are acceptable, but the list of memorable scenes? they are all simply the most violent scene in the film. how off putting and shallow. the most memorable scene in a clockwork orange was the rape? jesus man.

    • Michael Bock

      I’m the one who wrote it. Just as you’re entitled to your opinion, as you’ve established, so am I.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1641889279 nafandendinger

        you are completely right, although I have to say, your favorite quote from Pulp Fiction seems very lame. I would’ve gone with something from the overdose scene, pretty much the most intense scene in the movie. All opinions, though :)

        • http://www.facebook.com/victorv60 victorvillavicencio

          very nice list i would only recommend to add cinema paradiso and children of heaven. Again congratulations for the list

  • MattNKrantz

    Any list of this sort is pointless unless the author was asked for their opinion on what they think the top 100 movies of all time are. I don’t think that was the case here. The Dark Knight? Please!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=672584123 liampool

      And yet you took the time to read the list and write a response…and so the world keeps turning.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=634692512 aaronking

    Very nice list. A couple of movies I have in my top 100 that I didn’t see in yours. No complaints though.

    Snatch
    Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
    Jurassic Park
    Children of Men
    Being John Malkovich
    LA Confidential
    Trainspotting
    Kill Bill 1 & 2

    Again no complaints on the list.

    • Michael Bock

      Thank you! I also love the movies you listed; of ‘em, LA Confidential, Jurassic Park, and Being John Malkovich were the very best!….Imho

  • CaffeineHound

    I note with sadness that I don’t see a single Cecil B. DeMille epic here. The list is incomplete.

    • Michael Bock

      Certainly you must realize, that with soooo many great produced over the past century, that it’s almost impossible to include them all in a Top 100 list. I very much agree, though, that DeMille was a phenomenal director and had several epic films. I think The Ten Commandments and The Greatest Show on Earth are two of his very best.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=621696302 jessicarichardson

    Harvey deserves a spot on this list. Jimmy Stewart does a fabulous job of convincing the audience that there is indeed a 6’3 1/2″ rabbit/Pooka beside him. The film also beautifully illustrates how much we let social norms dictate us, how being jovial is seen as insane, and the happiness that can be found in not worrying. “Years ago my mother used to say to me, she’d say, “In this world, Elwood, you must be” – she always called me Elwood – “In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.” Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”~Elwood P Dowd

    • Michael Bock

      I haven’t seen the movie, but from the way you describe it, I love the sentiment!

  • StefdotP

    I am mad. I dont like the list of movies you made even tho ill never have the guts or the initiative to put together for the public to criticize.

    HOW DARE YOU!

  • http://www.facebook.com/004forever samvercauteren

    I hope this isn’t supposed to be in order. How the hell does Full Metal Jacket beat 2001?

      The devil made me do it ;-D

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1113840163 matthewrange

    I like your list a lot, although not necessarily the ordering. One movie I feel like was overlooked is “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” great movie if you havent seen it. Also, maybe Donnie Darko.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1381625584 ronbeaudrie

    probably the best top list ive seen. well done!

    • Michael Bock

      Many, many thanks!

  • Michael Bock

    As you can see, I mostly get flak (and little praise) for movies that should’ve or shouldn’t be on the list…For all the haters, you’re very welcome to put together their own list! haha

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1522926207 michaelehrhart

      I loved your list man! You did a great job! Only thing that was missing was Donny Darko!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045812357 ryansloss

        Don’t let them get you down Michael. This list was HIGHLY informative compared to, literally, all of the other lists I’ve seen. Great job bromorpheus (I liked how The Matrix was on here if you couldn’t tell!) Thank you again

    • JABacchetta

      That’s just how it goes on the internet Michael. Thousands of people liked and shared the article, but a handful will always complain about something, even if they liked 99 of the movies but disliked 1.

      • Michael Bock

        Where’s the Like button when you need one? LOL

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=891835064 drewnicholson

    pretty decent list. i wouldnt put inception or dark knight in the top ten, but overall good list. citizen kane needs to be on the list. it is widely considered as a top movie of all time. i would also add requiem for a dream and donnie darko, but thats just me.

    • JABacchetta

      Citizen Kane is at #13 on this list :-)

    • http://www.facebook.com/GradeABadass kevinmccluskey

      I agree with inception and the dark knight. Although they might make their way into the top 10 in the future, because they are excellent movies, they need to stand the test of time awhile longer before that happens.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jim.pruitt59 jamespruitt

    List is pretty good, but Ben-Hur (1959) and Planet of the Apes (1967) should have been on the list.

    Why nothing from the Marx Brothers? Mel Brooks? Dirty Harry?

    • Michael Bock

      Careful there or I’ll take some of the ones here out and put Gigli and Battlefield Earth in, haha.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=747462094 seanmcgaffey

    You [generic insult], you didn’t include [favorite movie]. This list is [negative adjective]

    • Michael Bock

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002245860827 jankrasny

    Youve lost me here: “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”

    • Michael Bock

      Yep, that’s what it’s called…lmao

  • RIGOGA1

    i think number 1 in this list must be ,,Alien,, or ,,Terminator,, becouse it is epic , tecnichally perfect and unseen before…

  • http://www.facebook.com/jdmosp davidmiranda

    They are very good movies (most of them), however, your list is so poor, the title must be something like Top 100: North American Best Movies (of All-Time) (excepting for some of them) you need to see fimls of south america, asia, africa, even europe, not only the shooting film culture from USA… see more man

  • http://www.facebook.com/SomePeopleCallMeACreep dillonbrady

    Terrible list.

    • http://www.facebook.com/omnihil777 andrekistner

      Yep! It is! Some of em are great, like “The G the B and the U”, but forgot “El Dia de la Bestia” and MANY more. And comeon: “Shawshank Redemption” *coff* Stephen King?

  • bawsenig449

    So..what you’re saying…is…. that Leon The Professional, The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight, Inception, Fight Club, The Silence of the Lambs, Amelie, Memento, The King’s Speech, Se7en, Spirited Away, The Matrix, Braveheart, Alien, American History X, The Departed, Wall-E, UP, Toy Story 3, Stand By Me, Harry Potter, The Green Mile, American Beauty, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Inglorious Basterds, and RATATOUILLE, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE, ARE BETTER MOVIES THAN 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY?

    It’s quite hard for me to restrain my anger right now.

    • Michael Bock

      Anger management therapy works wonders ;-D

      • http://www.facebook.com/kelli.pendleton kellipendleton

        Wow. No doubt!

    • http://www.facebook.com/GradeABadass kevinmccluskey

      I appreciated the fact that 2001 was not very high on the list. Everyone always praises 2001 and Citizen Kane as pure cinematic excellence but I have to say I found them both mind numbingly boring. This is coming from the prospective of a 23 year old kid, but I consider myself to be a fairly enlightened critic of movies.

      Taking a second look at the list of movies you were enraged to see ahead of 2001 leads me to believe you have no credibility in your opinions. Shawshank, Silence of the lambs, Braveheart, The Green Mile… are all very widely acclaimed and at least desire a serious comparison to 2001.

      • Michael Bock

        I’ve gotta give it to Kevin on that…when you’re right, you’re right :-)

  • Michael Bock

    If you’re one of the more enlightened individuals, lol, who actually enjoyed this list, I do take monetary tips :-P

  • http://www.facebook.com/kelli.pendleton kellipendleton

    It’s an interesting list and well put together, but a very white boy list. Lots of sci-fi, fantasy, and war/action. Glad there were some exceptions, like Amelie and Singing in the Rain. Not really sure how Back to the Future can be ranked higher than Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz–like, in what universe? Mr. Block’s, I’m guessing. In my universe, The Color Purple would be high on the list, but is sadly totally absent! Still, I can tell a lot of work went into this, so I’m not hatin’.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kelli.pendleton kellipendleton

      Ooops! Bock!

      • Michael Bock

        Thank you Kelli :-D

  • http://www.facebook.com/redkittiekat amyvickery

    I for one love this. I’ve always enjoyed these sorts of lists. Regardless of whether I agree with all of the list or not, I’ve always enjoyed seeing other’s perspective on the movies. Sometimes I get a renewed perspective on a movie I didn’t like and go back and watch it again.

    So Michael I take this article for the spirit of which it was intended and think you did a great job.

    And to everyone who is “furious, angry or very upset” ….. ummm you need to get out more if a list makes you this upset ;)

    Just a piece of advice from someone who has fought cancer and won … when you go through 6 months of Chemotherapy … getting mad at an article on the internet is kinda low on the list.

    • Michael Bock

      Thanks ever so much Amy!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbiros markbiros

    As with any list people are going to disagree with things but I will say you did list some very very solid films that I do love. I will say not a single Darren Aronofsky film makes your list and that kind of seems like a tragedy to me. I agree with one of the above people that Children of Men was great enough to be on here as well as Cloverfield and the movie Moon by Duncan Jones. Quite a few others I would name that I personally love but I’m not planning on writing you my personal 100 but it was nice to see someone give credit to a lot of the great new modern cinema we have seen.

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks Mark! I could have definitely gotten behind Children of Men, but Cloverfield?? LOL

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001068228200 derekvagedes

    Perfect! I would not have done it any differently.

    • Michael Bock

      Thanks Derek!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1632837006 maxharper

    This whole list feels entirely arbitrary. La Dolce Vita didn’t even make the cut when Back To The Future did, and Dark Knight and Inception get 5th and 6th… What the hell kind of structure was this categorization based on?

    Inception and The Dark Knight THAT high on the list

    Someone is either 13 years old or desperately wants Nolan’s cock.

    • JABacchetta

      Yes because nobody over the age of 13 can enjoy The Dark Knight or Inception. Judging by your remark, I’d be willing to bet you still have a bit of hair to grow on your chest yourself. Now get back to YouTube and keep trolling. This time try harder.

      • Michael Bock

        LOL Jason, touche!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1188054105 arthurtansey

        . . .So you’re agreeing that out of EVERY MOVIE IN EXISTENCE, The Dark Knight, a very good film with some flaws and cliches we see in many other similar movies, and Inception, a decent action movie that some people found hard to understand and labeled it as “deep”, rank 5 and 6 respectively? Huh.

        • http://www.facebook.com/GradeABadass kevinmccluskey

          You can’t make a movie now a days without blending a theme or cliche from at least some other movie. The Dark Knight was, most simply, the black and white battle of good vs evil. How often has that been done? But how often is that battle so dynamic and encompass such a grey-area. Where the morality of the protagonist, secondary characters and the society as a whole are tested in, what you might call, their darkest hour. Its only flaw is that it’s a super hero movie and most critics can’t see passed Christian Bale’s cheesy deep voice and give this movie the credit it deserves.

          Oh yeah and Heath Ledger??? Enough said.

    Where is Rebel Without a cause?? only other ones i might add is The Patriot and V for Vendetta.

    • Michael Bock

      Not sure about the other two you mentioned, but I loved ‘V’! Although I’m not quite sure that it would make the cut for a Top 100 list like this HIGHLY scientific one ;-D…but most definitely on a Top 200, should Lifed.com readers ever be so fortunate to get one :-P.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dremedios1 davidremedios

    I can only wonder why Citizen Kane didn’t make it into the top ten, when the Dark Knight and Inception did? As a filmmaker, I must strongly disagree. And not a single movie with Audrey Hepburn?? My Fair Lady? Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Gone With the Wind instilled a much stronger impact on the film industry (displaying film as an art, rather than a means for profit) than movies like Inception and The Dark Knight. While movies like those are very good films, I must humbly disagree with the fact that they belong in the top ten best films of ALL TIME. Possibly the best in the last ten years…

    • Michael Bock

      So what you’re basically saying, I think, is that Inception and The Dark Knight haven’t had enough time to mature/stand the test of time, as have the likes of Breakfast At Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady? Maybe the former will, maybe they won’t. We took a gamble :-)

  • shahw1

    Not sure I agree with ALL the choices or ALL the placement of them on this list. But wow – reminds me how many really great movies there are!

    • Michael Bock

      Yep! And this is just breaking the surface; if we did a Top 200 list, so many more [very] worthy movies would be on it (and yes, even some that my haters have suggested in this comment thread, lmao).

  • http://www.facebook.com/btensi brittneyrook

    I must admit I’m shocked I agreed with you so much, seeing as you’re a guy, and let’s face it, guys and girls have very different tastes in movies. I was blown away when “Some Like It Hot” made the list!! One of my all time favorites! Although, I must admit, you need one Tom Cruise movie, “A Few Good Men”! It’s the one movie I can quote by heart and could watch on repeat every day of the year.

    But seriously, that was impressive! I might have moved a few up or down one way or the other, but of course, this whole list is opinionated, as mine would be. So glad to see 12 Angry Men, it’s a shame more people haven’t seen it!

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks for the praise Brittney :-) Yes, there was a method to the madness of the ordering, but I’m definitely not at liberty to discuss that, LOL. But you’re right, there are great movies that appeal more to men, then those that appeal to women, and then those that pretty much herald universal, unisex praise.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1155870127 nickthompson

    Agree with a lot of your list. Glad to see you didn’t feel like you had to put Citizen Kane and Casablanca 1 and 2. It would be so hard to do a list of 100 movies in order so I’m not criticizing the list just wondering what you think about On the Waterfront? It’s the only one that really surprised me that it didn’t make the cut.

    • Michael Bock

      To be perfectly honest, and I’ll probably receive some flak on this, but I’ve never heard of On the Waterfront…

    I always say it’s a generation thing to these greatest ever or all time lists. Do you like Star Wars or Star Trek? The gap in ages will create different lists.

    I agree Ben Hur needs to be on the list along with The Ten Commandments, War and Peace, Doctor Zhivago, American Graffiti, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Midway, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington to name a few

    • Michael Bock

      Well, to put it into perspective, I’m 31 (a Gen-X’er, if you will) :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/Jennxsomething jennikunkle

    how is Ratatouille higher on the list than The Lion King? How is it even on this list at all? It wasn’t that great of a movie. Up, or even Wall-E should have replaced Ratatouille. this Top 100 list is SUCH AN EPIC FAIL.

    • JABacchetta

      Wall-E and Up are both already on the list. Maybe try reading the entire list before questioning what should and shouldn’t be on it? Then it would be a lot easier to take you seriously…

      • Michael Bock

        I do love how people callously sling around the phrase “EPIC FAIL”, as if the latter (in its typical, colloquial usage these days) could ever measure up to an actual “EPIC FAIL” OR “EPIC FAILURE”, such as the Hindenburg disaster or Watergate scandal. LoL.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000013643986 bryanperry

      If you guys wanna throw stones then spend your time making a list instead of throwing cheap lazy shots. I enjoyed this list despite not being in total agreement. Also The Dark Knight was a F*%KED UP MOVIE.

  • http://www.facebook.com/moviechaser nickdoshner

    I don’t understand why people rank Shawshank as one of the best.It was good, but nothing I would say “oh have to watch that again” .It ranks better than Lawrence of Arabia? Really? Also, Forrest gump, casino, usual suspects, and seven are all overrated movies. They don’t deserve to be in the top 100. Just my opinion. I know this is a personal list. Most movies on here are worthy. Good job.

    • Michael Bock

      Danke! :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/poly7 mattliuaana

        Ed Weber (I assume that’s the correct form): I haven’t see either of those, but I’ve always wanted to see (at least) Suicide Kings. Any flick that features Chris Walken as one of the main characters is almost always a good bet!

    Although this may be a completely opinion piece, but I calmly dismissed the list after I saw “Inception” at #6 and “The King’s Speech” at #34, and I even gave a slight chuckle wondering if it was entirely serious.

    • Michael Bock

      Here’s a novel idea: Since you don’t like this list, go do your own. Alas! Logic.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joydinekeller joykeller

    I actually really liked this list. Of course no one will totally agree with the order that 1 person lists movies. I would have had Citizen Kane in the top 5.
    I also would not have put 2 of the LOTR movies on the list. Or 2 SW movies either. I think we could have used those slots for a couple other classics.

    But overall, it’s damn hard to make a top 100 list of movies, I would never be able to take it on. Well done! It’s one of the better lists that I have seen.

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks, Joy!

    • Michael Bock

      I have seen it, and it was a great movie I agree…but there’s just so many movies you can fit into a Top 100 list, lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002300943686 davidoctavio

    I think “Karate Kid” should be here along with “Back From The Future”…

  • http://www.facebook.com/wmeeusen woutermeeusen

    Good list, although I think it should be called “Best American Movies” (with about 3 or 4 exceptions).

    Otherwise I believe movies like “Das Leben der Andern”, “Das Boot”, “La meglio Giuventù”, “Oldboy” or even “Kung fu hustle” or “Delicatessen” should be included.

    Also: ‘Pan’s Labyrinth, despite being written and spoken entirely in Spanish, is one of the most intriguing and visually-stunning “adult fairy tales” possibly ever.’???
    How can can you criticise a movie, set in fascist Spain in 1944, on the fact that it is spoken in Spanish?

    • Michael Bock

      I’m kind about baffled how you think I criticized Pan’s Labyrinth when I wrote that it’s “..one of the most intriguing and visually-stunning ‘adult fairy tales’ possibly ever.” Sounds like a helluva lot of praise to me, LOL

      • aelias_b

        Das Leben der Andern, or The Lives of Others, would’ve definitely made my list (which I probably won’tmake). If you haven’t watched it please do yourself the favor and check it out. Great one. As for Pan’s Labyrinth, I def think it should be in the Top 50 at least.

        Great list! Will definitely be trying to watch the ones that I haven’t.

    • Michael Bock

      Many many thanks, Zack!

    Wow, half of you idiots posting comments about this list need to get off their high horses. This is one person’s personal top 100 list. Check the top 250 from IMDB if you want an opinion of the masses… and btw the IMDB list (popular opinion) is not misrepresented by this list. People are actually mad about Shawshank Redemption, Dark Knight, and Inception? Have you even seen them or are you only interested in indies? Stop bitching about Lion King too. I get it. You were a kid when you first saw it and you love it… watch it again, its not better than any recent animated movie.
    Good job on the list.
    Cheers

    • Michael Bock

      Tons of thanks, John! And might I add, Excellent point. :-)

  • Whats_up_mike

    The biggest thing I appreciate about the article is that the author is listening to the concerns and complaints and taking them for what they are. Opinions. The article is an opinion and people don’t seem to get that.

    It took a lot of work to get this list made, and the list is a great one. I don’t agree with some movies being higher or lower than some but it is the author’s opinion to put them where he wants and I respect and applaud the work for such a great and well organized list.

    The only thing I want to note on for my opinion of what I disagree with is the placement of the Dark Night, I feel this should be a top 25 movie maybe. Other than that, spot on with matching closely to what I’d have in my top 10 maybe top 20 movies!

    • Michael Bock

      Thanks Mike! I very much appreciate it. And yes, it did take around two to three months to assemble the list and work out the details for the bullet points :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/canyouseeit colinbush

    You had some great movies on the list.
    My list is a lot different order and a bunch of movies you didn’t put on there.
    Have you seen Oldboy? To me that is my #1 movie, you should see it.
    I love that movie and it is one of the best films ever made (IMO).

    Film is amazing.

    • JABacchetta

      Old Boy has been mentioned quite a few times in the comments as one of the top 3 movies. We’ll definitely be watching that and most likely adding it to a future movie list.

  • http://www.facebook.com/LovelyLondyn londynlanning

    What?!

    The best line in Pulp Fiction was totally “Something”, or “So, pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the fucking car.” or even, “Tell that bitch to be cool!”

    And Dark Knight’s was “Wanna see a magic trick?”

    A lot of your “best lines” seem to be the most cliche or the actual tag-line for the movie.

    And really. Harry Potter was considered in the REALM of top 100? I guess I should be thankful the Twilight saga wasn’t on this list.

    • Michael Bock

      Yes, Harry Potter made the List :-D And be careful, on the next list I might just sneak in Twilight! bbahahaha

    • loesch

      There are too many great lines in pulp fiction, get over it

    Ratatouille over Lion King. Seriously? I think I accidentally hit a randomize button or something.

    • Michael Bock

      LoL, funny stuff!

  • PBastille

    I agree, the quotes weren’t always the best or most memorable (because I’ve seen many of these movies, and, well, I don’t exactly remember where some of these “memorable” quotes were in the film). I disagree with the order somewhat as well, but that’s to be expected — the odds of agreeing 100% are astronomical.

    Pleased to see Amelie, my all-time favorite film, make the list. Some of the most visually stunning camerawork you ever will see in this genre (like that great crane shot when she’s skipping stones…). American director Bryan Fuller has attributed this film as one of his greatest influences for his shows “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies”. Its way more than a chick-flick. Because it is subtitled and you have to read it the first time through, you definitely have to watch it several times to get the full effect of the film.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1282137119 stephenbradley

    Like your list and have seen every film on it. However when you put up a list and refuse to consider films that are not on the list with “make your own list” or “can only take a 100″ does not excuse the fact that you goofed on a few. I am not talking about the order here but more on omissions.

    I am curious on why these were omitted?

    sound of music
    On the waterfront
    Planet of the apes
    Ben hur
    The great escape
    Mr smith goes to Washington

    Those are just a couple off the top of my head. Films like POTC , and Bourne Ultimatum are good fun movies but just don’t belong in the same list with the ones you left out. I agree with there can only be a 100 but think you need to revisit a couple of the final choices. Anyways fun to talk about movies and appreciate the hard work you put in here.

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks! :-) And for the record, there are several, several movies that people have pointed out that, perhaps, should have been on the list and I’ve partially- or fully-agreed with them.

      This is also an opinion piece (but one that IS based on several other prominent, well-researched lists), if someone doesn’t like it—for the ordering, the movies themselves, the “quotes”, etc.—let them find one more to their liking or better yet, let ‘em make their own.

  • ga_ste

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.crawfish landonguy

    How EXACTLY did the Two Towers miss your list when Fellowship and Return were both on there?? Return was honestly the worst of the three with all it’s meanderings and the ending being dragged out by like 5 different possible ending points.. the fellowship was pretty good, but.. you do’nt really get into the MEAT of the story until the towers.. It had Gandalf actually fighting the Balrog, coming back as Gandalf the White, the great scene of him beating Sauroman through magic, and the epic ending scene at Helm’s Deep’I ride. By light of the 5th day, look for my coming’ morning of the fith day:*he shows up with the Roherim and proceeds to kick all kinds of uruk-hai ass.

    oh, and if you’re going by popular claim, where the bloody HELL is is Empire??? ask ANY Star Wars fan, they’ll tell you, V was the best. I mean seriously, “Luke, I am your Father!” are you KIDDING me with putting up ONLY episode IV??

    • Michael Bock

      Seriously, I spent around two months putting this together (we’re all entitled to our opinions, naturally) and you come here to only bitch, without even so much as offering a simple “good job” in lieu? How about you put a Top 100 together using this format and approximate word count? You know, then you’ll ACTUALLY have something to back your pointless bickering up with. If not, take your bitching and moaning elsewhere.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joshua.schmitt2 joshuaschmitt

    This is possibly the worst top 100 movie list I have ever seen. Sure, lists like this are meant to be opinionated. But, it’s inappropriate when the author shows open disdain for other films and genres that people love. Sure, YOU might not like some movies, but try to keep it professional.

    Also, some horrible choices in “best quotes” in there. But, again this is all opinion.

    • Michael Bock

      Go make your own list; pack it full of ALL the “other films and genres that people love” into no more than 100 films—THEN come back and bitch.

      And please, pleeease show me where this supposed “open disdain” for other great movies is? I’m dying to know!

      Many thanks! I don’t get many thanks for my work, as you probably noticed whilst going down the comments section.

    What a silly, SILLY list. Some of the great movies missing ENTIRELY are “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (the first one), “Grapes of Wrath,” “The Fly” (again, the first one), Blade Runner,
    “Ben Hur,” “Edward Sissorhands” and others that I cannot think of at the moment. To put “Inception” on the list at all, let alone in the top 10, shows how silly the list is.

      Your comment is extremely silly. For one, if your so-called ‘great movies’ are so great, then how come you can’t even remember them? Logic, my friend.

      • BobbySimons

        u shared ur opinions with the list and now people are sharing theirs – what’d u expect – a fan club? get over yourself man, some people hate this list and have every right to speak their mind as much as folks who love it. i’m neutral, and im simply taking this as a list of suggestions of things to watch. but it’s certainly not THE best movies of all time since that’s entirely subjective. i respect ur opinion however, i appreciate the article etc – but u just sound petty for answering every other negative comment. for crying out loud, learn how to deal with criticism, otherwise DON’T POST STUFF ON THE INTERNET!

        • Michael

          Noted, and thanks for your comment. I certainly do appreciate
          criticism–constructive criticism, that is. And yes, you’re right,
          establishing “the best movies of all time” is a hugely and irrevocably
          subjective task. But we felt that these best represent some of the best
          from the last 100 years, based off a litany of other lists from very
          reputable venues. That said, no one will ever, ever agree on the exact movies for a top 100, or even 10 (much less the order of them), movies.

    Why didn’t Titanic make it?

    • Michael Bock

      Because perhaps, , it wasn’t worthy of being in the Top 100? LoL

  • http://www.facebook.com/jesstabulous jessicafordham

    I fully agree with the selections of movies on this list; not necessarily the specific order in which they’re placed, but nevertheless very well put together

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeriel.castilloaponte jerielaponte

    Your list is ok but this is how I would of done my top ten.

    10-Raging Bull
    9-E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
    8-Singin’ in the Rain
    7-2001: A Space Odyssey
    6-Schindler’s List
    5-Lawrence of Arabia
    4-Casablanca
    3-The God Father
    2-Gone with the Wind
    1-Citizens Kane

  • http://www.facebook.com/asgharDdude muhammadasghar

    Supper awesome list, great work for the best dialogs u put up…. i have watched like 95% of this list already but will watch rest…. i know i sound crazy but i will make objection at no. 1 movie, the God Father, but i never liked the “God Father series” (i know every one “loved” it but may be its not of my type, though i loved Good-Fellows :P) and “2001-Space Odssey”. The Shawsank Redemption deserved to be on top.
    Primal Fear (1996) its great story, Magnolia (1999) and Black Swan 2010 are so much neglected but still awesome work bro

    • Michael Bock

      Many thanks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mikeburrows11 michaelburrows

    Good list, man. This must have taken quite some time to research and arrange.

    I know that if this were my list though, I would have kicked myself for not including:
    West Side Story
    Titanic
    Airplane!
    Top Gun
    Kill Bill
    The Princess Bride
    Scarface
    At least one James Bond mention (maybe Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, or Dr. No?)

    • http://www.facebook.com/mikeburrows11 michaelburrows

      Darnit… I forgot some:

      Avatar
      Rain Man
      Independence Day
      Meet the Parents
      The Great Escape
      The Goonies

      Yeah, I see, it’s tougher than one might think to pick only a top 100. But I still say West Side Story, Titanic, Airplane, and Avatar have to be on there!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=507575741 alexanderdance

    These lists almost always seem to be biased towards recent movies and American movies.

    50% of these movies have been made since 1990 and I think i counted only 16 that weren’t American. Not to mention 4 were released this year.

    Just saying

    • Andy

      I couldn’t agree more…. I’ve purposely watched most of AFI’s Top 100 in teh last few months and was stunned to see how many movies aren’t on here. Just too many recents.

    It goes on and on and on

    The list of films better than Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Harry Potter is staggering.

    • m.v.

      man you should start a blog,your on point.

    • tr

      You are one of the people who hate Inception because it is a “recent” movie aren’t you? I agree it isn’t the BEST movie ever, (probably not top 10 but top 15) but seriously, get over the fact it wasn’t made in the, “A-days of hollywood”.

      • Mike

        Personally I think Inception was just weak. Doesn’t matter when it was made. It doesn’t make my list of top 100. Its a fun movie, and has great visuals, but so do the stupid ass Transformer movies, and those too wouldn’t touch my top 100 list. Of Course Inception was definitely better than the Transformer movies, but its nothing amazing, and I really don’t get why people love it so much.

        • Erik

          I’m so happy someone shares my opinion! #6? If I were to make a list, Inception would probably fall in the 200’s. It was pretty good. Not good, not great, just pretty good.

          • Ahcomonman

            Agreed.

        • Golden Brown

          Really? Its cool with me that you didn’t like it but I think it is so appealing because its a classic heist/bank robbery movie only a corporation through the manipulation of the subconscious. Its hard for me to see how you could even mention Michael Bay’s Transformers in the same post but we all have our opinions.

          • http://www.facebook.com/james.duffy.315213 James Duffy

            Transformers are amazing, all of them, but 1, 2 and 3 need to be the LOTR.

          • http://www.facebook.com/shfhs.vomvolakis Shfhs Vomvolakis

            no. Transformers are horrible. the deserve to be on top 100 worst films of all time

        • K.

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ginQNMiRu2w for those who are bashing Inception, you clearly haven’t watched the movie close enough.. It deserves its place on this list, although I do not agree with the placement of many other movies on this list

        Inception is at LEAST 150 or higher, I can’t believe they said Inception was better then rear window, vertigo, citizen kane, etc

        I walked out on Inception because it was crap.

        • sean tucker

          highly doubt you did that… trying to prove a point here??

            exactly. that movie was fantastic.

        • Baffeled Rodger

          Inception was great compared to other recent movies. Avatar was a huge waste of money. What does this have to do with anything?

          • geeb

            avatar showed human beings as alien savages invading another planet instead of others invading us.. kind of a independence day in reverse.. and also showed what a planet could be if the inhabitants didn’t rape it like we do to ours. might have been too deep a concept for some people.

    • Michael

      Scarface was a horrible film, and Harry Potter wasn’t even on this list, why are you bringing it into the mix?

      • Ahcomonman

        Seriously???? Scarface was horrible???? Geeeeezzzzzzzzz…………Some people.

      agree, and pls add matrix and bourne ultimatum on the “staggering” list. most movies on the list are ok though, and not that the above mentioned films were that bad it’s just that there are other movies that are a lot better.

    • darren

      Rear Window’s there?

    • Luigi

      Better than INCEPTION? LOL

    • Ahcomonman

      Good point Rocky wasn’t there. Not really on track with some of ur picks for the top 100 but yeah.

      I think you might be Anthony DiNozzo from NCIS

      How can Jaws be 94th? Jaws should be first, no doubt.

    • jumpinjoe

      Scarface, Anne Hall, Blade Runner; now that’s a better list. I don’t know who creates these blogs but you should sit down and start watching some more movies before you decide top 100 movies.

  • TommyBennett

    Wow, this is a bad list. Taste? no accounting for it.

    • Michael Bock

      Go make your own “tasteful” list. Til’ then, shut up and learn to respect others’ (in this case, mine) work. Rude prick.

      • Keith Bendal

          You’re* Please remember while perusing the internet to observe all applicable grammar rules.

          I feel better now. Anyway, Michael Bock, I appreciate the work it must have taken to make this list. I disagree with some picks(A New Hope before The Empire Strikes Back? Preposterous! But that would just be a purist speaking wouldn’t it?), but hey, it certainly added to my must see list. I hope you make another one, I’ll be looking for it (just please, for the love of all that is holy and sacred, don’t even consider The Hunger Games for the new list).

    I like Lawrence of Arabia more than I like The Godfather

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000581350207 colejaeger

    This is such a fan list. The fan favorites are all on the top 20 like inception, fight club, the dark knight, shawshank redemption, and pulp fiction. Somehow Harry Potter is on here. How is The Kings Speech on here. A lot of these are very new, and yes, they haven’t had time to adapt, but none of the newer ones really reinvented anything like some of the older movies. Also a lot are left off. Lots of greats are too low like 2001, Gone with the wind, and Citizen Kane. If it were my list I would put some Terrence Malick and Paul Thomas Anderson movies on.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HoangKhiemHa hoang-khiemha

    Unlike a majority of the previous commenters I like your list. That being said I’m setting out to see all of these films and more so by chance do you have these 100 without any of the other text? I want to make a checklist and I’m too lazy to copy and paste 100 titles. :D Much thanks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002044110697 sadieheldberg

    I totally agree that Fear and Loathing Las Vegas needs to be on this list as does Being John Malkovich. If it were not for Dangerous Liaisons, I would never have started my love affair with the fantastic actor. With the Blockbuster @ Home package, I’ve been using the amount of movies and couch time I’ve been catching up on has been getting critical. I used to come home from work at Dish and play games on my computer but now I have live streaming movies on my TV or PC with my internet connection that just keep me addicted. I’ve always loved movies but getting movies by mail and Blu-rays at no additional charge is like feeding candy to a child, me being the child.

  • Todd_Brown

    I feel as though this list should be entitled “The Greatest Movies That I have seen thus far”. In my opinion there are many great movies on this list but it fails to be a definitive list on its own. There are also far too many recent American films (the last 20 years) on here that misrepresent the way that quality cinema has been moving over that time span. Over the past 10 years, there has been a surge in international films that should be on this list (A Prophet, Let the Right One In, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) while the lackluster and less superior films (The Kings Speech, Reservoir Dogs, The Green Mile, Batman Begins, Casino, Pirates of the Caribbean?!?!) are taking credit here. For instance, one disappointment I see on here is the inclusion of Life is Beautiful whilst not including Cinema Paradiso. Where are the true classics of French and Italian film? What about the surge in quality that South Korea has produced recently (A Tale of Two Sisters, The Man from Nowhere, I Saw the Devil, The Housemaid, Mother, Thirst, Oldboy, Memories of Murder)? Because of this, I feel like this list will be seriously revised once you have been introduced to more films and I look forward that to the changes on your perspective (and this list) that will come when you are introduced to them.

    • JABacchetta

      Thanks for the feedback Todd. I’m sure we’ll be publishing another movie list in the future, and we’ll definitely check out some of your suggestions.

  • satishhh

    This list is good, Its good to see movie like “stand by me” is included but wat about “Rocky”. It should’ve been included atleast in 100th position.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000266365656 chrisvieth

    Inception wasn’t original…It took a lot of it’s premise and even specific scenes from an excellent Japanese movie called Paprika. Christopher Nolan has openly admitted to how much Paprika influenced him in interviews even.
    This list would be better called: “Best Movies I’ve Seen”.
    I mean, all but maybe 3 of them are American. A lot of them are very very recent. And a lot of them are the stereotype hyped up movies that have won Best Picture at the Oscars. Other movies exist besides what the Oscars say is the best. : /

  • http://www.facebook.com/james.horn2 jameshorn

    Gotta have Blood Diamond on there, and Hotel Rwanda. Other than that I disagree with the order but great list. Like you said, I’ll never make one :p

However i didn’t find that is (according to me) one of the greatest movies of all time, Dead Poets Society. If you havn’t seen it i recommend it with all my heart, and if you have seen in and it’s not on the list i’d like to know why :(

  • DarrickE

    I think “The Deer Hunter” should be on this list somewhere around the 50-60 range.

  • Kipcorn

    Endless Summer and Dances With Wolves should definitely be in there

  • :)

    There is definitely a lack of Titanic on this list

  • ringer

    u turn and unforgiven.

  • DrJeff

    Some f the selections for this list are completely mystifying. Shawshank Redemption at #2 ? Really?!

  • bredabanaan

    Once upon a time in America should be in there, I think it’s very underrated and misunderstood. and good will Hunting, a beautiful mind, Snatch, Scarface, Gran torino, Heat, the untouchables, Dog day afternoon, The Deer hunter, LA confidential and Requiem for a dream also deserve to be in here. and for me personally Letters from Iwo Jima and A bronx Tale as well

    • Funstuff

      Not Snatch. Boondock Saints.

    • Dubscott

      Agreed with you, Once upon a time in America should be in there, same for Requiem for a dream.

    • BobbySimons

      those are some good movies to add!

  • Michael Bock

    Cool list. Good SEO most importantly since this list is so well-ranked in Google search! Only issue I have is when I looked at comments I saw that the creator of the list, Michael Bock, takes criticism WAY too seriously. Michael, there are millions of people who have seen the list and it shouldn’t be surprising that some of them might have a different opinion. You really don’t have to get so upset and surprised if a few of them will leave bad comments. Also, we are not in the grammar competition. You sound like a douche correcting everyone (by the way look up the meaning of grammar and spelling, I think you confuse the two). My conclusion: good list but its ruined by a grammar-nazi douche who can’t accept or even ignore criticism. Don’t bother replying by the way, I like to get assholes like you riled up and then ignore them (i.e. I won’t read your comments and I’ll forget about you forever after leaving my absolutely accurate and truthful comment ). HAVE A NICE DAY :)

  • Haaj

    Great list. I just think that Inception and the Dark Knight need to prove they deserve that high of a spot on a very comprehensive list through the test of time. One movie that should be on there merely for being iconic would be Rocky. There was actually an absence of sports films (Rudy, Remember the Titans, etc.) But it is impossible to fit every great movie into a list of 100. Truth.

  • krakkah

    Herbie goes to Monte Carlo should be at No. 3, jeez.

    thanx for the list… liked most of it and found our few great movies that i missed..but then u cannot satisfy everyone with just 100 great movies … i really dont care for the countdown i dont mind whts higher and whts lower .. wht i really liked was the format of the listing and ofcourse with just the right amount of details. hope u come out with the other genere lists too..will help us alot..

  • Gorkhali

    hey guys i m looking for Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman’s movie list can any1 help me on that. Great Actors.love them

  • JustinP

    every one has a best list. Their opinion is theirs. This one is insane. Mike, you have a predaliction for mob movies first of all.The sporadic inclusion of classics isn’t fooling anyone either. Citizen Kane not even top 10! Dark Knight!!! American Beauty and Back To The Future ranked HIGHER than Gone With The Wind and Wizard Of Oz!!!!! I love every movie on the list but there is a gross amount of amazing movies missing and the inclusion of some of these choices over them is ludicrus, as well as the order. I don’t have time to list them all. I hope this doesn’t come off angry-just dissagree

  • Smiles go for miles xx

    Really bad selections :(

  • ADSfdadfa

    This list is terrible, inception shouldn’t be in the top 1000 let alone top 10, it feels like a list written by a 13 year old boy.

    • Chris

      Inception is a fcking great movie and actually really good made. Why u think it should be on 1000 top ?

      • PissCloud

        really “well” made you fuckin dumb ass.

  • shh

    iv got a question why isn’t blood diamond up there??

    • Jimmy

      I agree

    • http://www.greetings4u.net/ Greetings

      Yeah. Blood Diamond is a wonderful movie and a must watch one!

    • Cotton

      I have an answer…. “Because it wasn’t a very good movie.” Sure, the message is certainly relevant, but the movie sucked.

      • zach

        17 to 5 on his comment says you’re wrong…

  • fuckyou

    what a joke. the godfather is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.

  • slim

    jeeeez!!!!!!! where is avatar??? do u have an idea how much it sold worldwide???? its the best movie of all times…..

  • Mike Darlington

    This list is simply awful, i’m sorry but it just is. How did this ever get published?

  • MJHAlta

    Your top 10 list should include Dances with Wolves, LA Confidential, and the Sting. Dump the crap like “the Dark Knight, Inception, as well as the Good the bad and the ugly which are mediecre movies at best and should not even be in the top 100.

  • tutty ob fridays

    tottal sucjks

  • tutty ob fridays

    *sucks

  • tutty on fridays

    yes go frogfather

  • kacha

    yeah! this are real classic movies but where is ‘Jak rozpętałem drugą wojnę światową’ (How I Unleashed World War II)

  • Anarch Peak

    Top ten was really a disppointment. The list should include Blues Brothers, Bladerunner.

  • fdsg

    Where is titanic????

    • apb

      at the bottom of the atlantic ocean.

      • http://www.facebook.com/james.duffy.315213 James Duffy

        Haha i lol’d at that one

    • DD

      Sad that u think it belongs in this list…

      • ary

        It is better than many movies in this list

        • Soul

          no, it’s better than none of them.

          • michael

            is that sarcasm? just askin i cant tell if you typed it

          • michael

            is that sarcasm? just askin i cant tell if you typed it

  • ahdlfj

    was harry potter there? it should have been in the top ten. also, where is avengers, the dark knight rises, and other more successful films like that? if it is just single films, not movie series, i would understand. but it isn’t. can someone revise it. thank u so much.

  • hajrflahdlf

    ahhhhh! why is harry potter at 79 please promote it. for the ppl!!!

  • Malcolm

    I thought the best quote of Gladiator was ”Are you not entertained?!”

  • Toby

    it’s a nice list you have made, but you do miss a lot of great movies.. and theres many videos that shouldn’t have been on top 100! Titanic, Avatar, Harry Potter 1-7, not 7 part 2 .. It’s not at good movie compared to the book. And when you first do cartoons, Ice Age, legends of the guardians the owls of ga’hoole and almost all of the disney movies made from the start of disney too 1999:)

  • ARW

    I think that the best “Up” quote should have been
    “Hi, my name is Russell, and I am a wilderness explorer in troop 54, sweat lodge 12″ :)

    • BobbySimons

      lol – second that!

  • the doc

    How can you not put The Breakfast Club on here?!? These selections are completely awful!

  • the doc

    And why is Samuel L Jackson’s bible verse quote not, well, quoted under pulp fiction?? Eh, this is Just a bad list. ):

  • http://www.facebook.com/joshua.martin.7169 Joshua Martin

    Battleship(2012) should defiently be up there it is is a fantactis movie

  • Pols

    I don’t see The Hunger Games here in page 1

  • WTH ?

    where the HELL IS Rocky !!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jessicaivy.longoria Jessica Ivy Longoria

    where is James Bond??

  • http://www.facebook.com/jessicaivy.longoria Jessica Ivy Longoria

    Where’s Troy (cried on that movie)?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jessicaivy.longoria Jessica Ivy Longoria

    Where is Avatar–COME ON if Ratattouile is more famous than Avatar I’m a hendicapped hippo with a herpes

  • http://www.facebook.com/jessicaivy.longoria Jessica Ivy Longoria

    Tim Burton’s Batman (COME ON) and Edward Scissorhands,Charlie and the chocolatte factory and Shrek (for Gods sake)

  • TheVoice

    List isn’t too bad but i cant understand the fascination with the dark night. The movie is average at best. The lives of others should have taken its place. Re: fdsg – Titanic is an awful movie…….

  • yes

    The legend of 1900 by tornatore? that’s incredible

  • Xanadu

    You simply should never put ‘The Dark Knight’ or any Star Wars film above ‘Citizen Kane’.
    It should always be at least top five. It’s a rule. Even if you hate the film.

  • ary

    And The legend of 1900 by Tornatore????that’s
    unbelievable

  • ihfiahlskh

    Interesting list of movies, made me want to revisit some of them. It is interesting what people consider the best..Out of the 1000’s of movies since the inception of motion pictures…The King’s Speech? Really? I really wouldn’t put that on the list. I don’t agree with the numbering, Fight Club is not better than Raiders of the Lost Arc, no way. Inception was a very interesting movie, but I wouldn’t have put it on the best 100, certainly not # 6. It definitely made me want to check out some of the silent ones I had not seen though.

    Screw Inception. An overly complicated premise and plot line that makes people feel like they are watching an intelligent film does not belong on this list.
    How do movies like No Country for Old Men, Gladiator, and Apocalypse Now fall very far behind The Dark Night. That movie has a completely worthless 45 minutes in some Asian country that only served to show Wayne’s cool new toys. A movie that is actually work a damn should never have their characters blurt out the themes of the film. Instead of Alfred saying, “Some men want to watch the world burn,” a good movie would SHOW that instead. If Ledger hadn’t died this movie would not have had the same impact people think it did. Wanting to be a part of something is no excuse to raise up a movie that happens to have a dead actor. The Green Mile isn’t better now just because Michael Clarke Duncan passed away a few days ago.

    How do movies like No Country for Old Men, Gladiator, and Apocalypse Now fall very far behind The Dark Night. That movie has a completely worthless 45 minutes in some Asian country that only served to show Wayne’s cool new toys.

    Ok, I’m sorry Heath died and all. I understand how that sucks for people. Seriously though, The Dark Knight is an ok movie. I’m a nerd and a huge comics fan, but Jesus Christ, it’s not all that.

  • Mike

    Inception shouldn’t even be close to this list. And absolutely should not be #6. Dark Knight was ranked much to high as well, should be somewhere in the 50s or 60s maybe.

    what about slumdog millionaire or the last samurai both really good movies

    This is a pathetically short sighted list. Popularity doesn’t equate to greatness. Sneak in the usual 10 or so B & W movies, as if they didn’t know what they were doing back then. Ha!

  • TheOneOnTheRight

    Since you apparently do appreciate classic films, I highly suggest “Good-bye, Mr. Chips.” Very certain it will make your next top 100 list.

    There are so many films that could have and should have been on this list IMO. Tragically, I find that to many under 40, these films are lost. They simply don’t even know that they exist. Instead, for them ,”blockbuster” films loaded with special effects versus films that, frankly, outclass much of the modern fare which relies on CGI and unrealistic fight scenes. Films like the ones below, instead, are carried by strong performances by fully developed characters in compelling stories that are as powerful today as the day they were made. Some of the modern films on the list presented will be all but forgotten in a few short years, replaced by another CGI slam bag smash up loaded with explosions and wooden “actors”.
    High Noon
    Midnight Cowboy
    Streetcar Named Desire
    Sunset Boulevard
    Deer Hunter
    The French Connection
    The Best Years of Our Lives
    Bullit
    The Apartment
    The Graduate
    Blade Runner
    Network
    Rear Window

    MATRIX AT #40?! that movie should at least be in the top 20! and its being beaten by spirited away! that movie didn’t even make sense ):

      LOL

  • James

    Blood Diamond is great but what about the classic “Cool hand Luke” or “Good Will Hunting”

  • The Hammer of Justice

    God I love some like it hot. I haven’t watched that in ages. “We have the same type blood, type O”. One of the funniest running gags in any movie I’ve seen

  • eric

    Wow just terrible..

  • FACE FUker

    your all idiots, who the fuck cares, its a buncha great movies quit your bicthing and make your own, thanks for the ideas!

  • Peeyush Srivastava

    This is amazing Titanic, Blood Diamond and many others is not in the list this is not a good list.

  • John

    dude Wizard of Oz, Saving Private Ryan, FOREST GUMP! Gladiator braveheart… and like 10 others movies on here are top 30 movies easy. List is below average but alot of good movies on the “list”

  • John

    An interesting list, but it’s missing many great films such as Patton. Also, why is Lawrence of Arabia only #55?

    Ye,i was waiting for blood diamond, the reader, titanic.. and like…the movies which are actually good.

  • GuyWhoKnows

    I can think of at least three Marx Bros movies that belong here

  • abz

    Titanic?!

    • Guest

      Just what I was wondering and came to the comments section to see if anyone else wondered that…

    • kes

      yes!! and avatar??

      • captain67

        Avatar is overrated garbage. Other than good CG it has nothing to make it a good movie.

  • Mickey

    A good List other than the Shawshank Redemption, It is a good movie but there are so many movies that are much better than it. Most overrated movie. I think people like it so much because they lack happiness in their real lives and get caught up in the happy ending.

  • Kat

    the best movie of all time is LEMONADE MOUTH ITS THA BEST
    !!!!

  • http://www.drivansmiles.com/ Cosmetic Dentist Chicago

    I like lists like these.

  • Nancy

    Wish I’d been warned at the beginning that this is a boy’s list. I regret the time I wasted.

  • RS BLESS

    yeah this is just, jesus… awful….rattatouie?? for real……

  • RS BLESS

    wow this guy did basically copy IMDB…. garbage….

  • Cotton

    The best list that is possible. You did a fantastic job, and used intelligence, to come up with this.

  • abxx

    worst list i’ve ever seen

  • abxx

    what about the flinstones in viva rock vegas? Or snakes on a plane? With this guy’s taste they should probably be on here.

  • IKNOWEVERYTHING

    Missing the best movie ever. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid

  • MovieGuy

    They must have created this list with some kind of random movie generator program, cause it’s crap.

  • nasrenjak

    There are some good movies out of Hollywood, you know that right?

  • Awesome guy

    I am missing the movies from sylvester stallone.

  • bob

    Ratatouille is higher than The Green Mile?! This is clearly a terrible list.

  • atavax

    Biggest surprise no shows for me were Blade Runner and Enter the Dragon. Biggest surprise making it to the list is probably Inception. Biggest surprise for how high it is on the list is The Dark Knight, really really high for what it was…

  • Aaron

    Do none of you realize that every person’s list is gonna be different? I’m sure the creator of this list hasn’t seen every movie ever made.

  • Bruck

    Not a sports fan I see! I would have included Rocky and Field of Dreams

  • hen na gaijin

    once upon time in the west @ # 10 ?……….nope……should be higher !!!

  • PuPuZa

    silence of the lambs on 25 place? that sucks :|

  • Kaitlyn

    I was quite disappointed when I realized Titanic was not on this list, especially considering it was the highest-grossing film for 12 years. Another great film is The Sound of Music, a classic. And The Lion King is better than 98% of these films listed.

  • B.shiva kumar

    Thanks for the list , Please send me updates of the list.

    thank you.

  • azril

    i think titanic is the best movie forever

  • EquivocalMindNW

    terrible top 100, WAY to many twentieth century movies…Blockbuster movies started going down hill in the 90’s….

  • scooter

    How about Crash?? while i do think that it is a decent list at best, its only opinionated not a pole based on votes or reviews

  • Dan

    Top Gun? Titanic? Missing a few here…

  • gavra

    Rashomon, 21 grams, Conan the barbarian, Platoon, Rubljov, Last tango in Paris etc.

  • I love movies

    No one will ever have the same list but both godfathers and goodfellas in the top 10 is crazy!!

  • COME ON

    why is back to the future NUMBER 63 I MEAN SERIOUSLY

  • The Joker

    why the fuck is batman dark night not 1!

  • dumb op

    Inception is number 6 and Pirates of the Caribbean is in the top 100, six spots away from the Big Lebowski. all you need to know about this fuckin retarded list.

  • listen to me !

    Finding Nemo?!

  • Suzanne Becker

    forrest gump, and wizard of oz should be in the top 10

  • jme

    Singin’ in the Rain is about the early days of talking movies not the early days of television and it’s The Bicycle Thief not Bicycle Thieves (movie #41).

    • Jason Bacchetta

      It’s actually known as both “The Bicycle Thief” and “Bicycle Thieves”.

      The original Italian title translates into English as Bicycle Thieves. It was also released in the UK as the more accurate Bicycle Thieves.

      And I’m looking into Singin’ in the Rain now to see if it needs to be corrected. Thank you for the feedback.

  • Philly D.

    i feel as if Monty Python and the holy grail should be in the top 30 or even the top 20, but I know that 1.) Monty Python will always be my favorite movie but not always the best, and 2.) there are many other movies out there that other people feel that belong in the top 20 movies in the list, so I’m alright knowing that my favorite movie out of all of the many movies ever made is one of the best movies of all time. quite an accomplishment for any of the directors of these movies.

  • Bawdybill

    There cannot be an all time greatest list as long as time exists. Try best so far or great to date, but never all time greatest. Disagree with many of your choices and some really good movies that are missing.

  • Papa Emeritus

    Dark knight??? In top 10???? And “The Godfather 2″ behind it??? Inception????

    Like Jesse Ventura said in “Predator”: “WHAT THE FUCK?????”

  • karen

    Requiem for a Dream ??

  • lalala

    wtf why is toystory 3 and wall-e higher then titanic or other outstanding movies.
    and inception in front of star wars and forest gump, are you kidding me?

  • ilovesquidward

    what the hell you have harry potter and pirates of teh crapabiienain are in this list and teh deer hunter heat or dirty harry isnt and is raging bull or taxi driver here either they are all great movies and inception is a great movies but i would say around 20

  • Mike

    The Terminator (1984) didn’t make the list? It and T2: Judgment Day are easily two of the best movies I’ve ever seen.

  • esskaay22

    this list couldn’t be more wrong i swear.

  • malvin

    people i cant give a fuck about 2 – 99 cause godfather deserves number 1 . its truly is a fucking masterpiece

  • Ryan

    wheres scarface -.-

  • newday1000

    I know this list is old and you may not care anymore but…I think this list over all was put together very well. I feel The Matrix and The Dark Knight are justified. My BIG question is Where is The Color Purple? Next time take Inception out and put The Color Purple in its place please! Thanks for the list

  • critic of critics

    Reading some of the comments is cracking me up! one person said,”greatest of all time doesn’t mean all the way back to 1970.” Wtf does of ALL TIME mean!!! I agree with the person who put his list down tho. Casino, Scarface & Good Fellas are classics and deserve to be in the top ten.
    I know one thing for sure this guy watches alot of movies and can quote his favorite line from each one. That is a whole hell of a lot more than anyone else can do.
    It is a decent list but i think he just started naming movies without order.

  • Jeremy

    shawshank redemption should be #1

  • J4k3

    WTF! All are old-testicles movies…, this is shit. Atleast put some movies worth while. The choices of the movies you given suck!!

  • JDR

    It is a great list. I totally agree with #1. The Godfather is # 1 in my own list too. For all the haters out there: this is just a list, you cannot put art into a formula…it is SUBJECTIVE…so stop questioning the author…it is a useless discussion…

    • Eric Hollingshead

      But he/she forgot ROCKY!! How the Hell do you forget about rocky!?

  • Ali Nawaz

    really great work.I really liked it infact every1 visited here appreciated it.I never commented at any site its my first time and i couldnt stop myself from commenting here.

  • ExDrT

    thnx god for no avatar in top 10… id rate movies by story and originality . Yes avatar is spectacular in terms of video effects but thats about it.

  • shafling

    Gran Torino? Million Dollar Baby?? The Big Lebowski???

  • J

    was the fugitive on here?

  • james

    why is’nt home alone in here

  • the mayfly

    best thing about this list is i m being aware of like;wow ‘those movies really existed ‘and i m watching them

  • T

    Woohoo! The Godfather def deserves #1! Great list man thanks :)

  • Natanael

    and Scarface?! WTF

  • Patrician

    0/10, try harder.

  • Bjones

    Love the list man would of liked to see Sandlot on there but hey if you havent seen it you should.

  • Em

    was the Swedish version of the girl with the dragon tattoo on here? didnt see it… seen most of these but i wouldnt call them the top 100… definitely a good selection though

  • http://twitter.com/daneb5 Dane Benoy

    Boondock Saints?? im sorry thats top 25

  • beng f

    jurassic park, rocky and titanic not included?

  • beng f

    the graduate? and cocoon?

  • marve

    The lord of the rings trioligy should be higher. Does anybody really think that for example amelie is better?

  • Distein

    Lawrence Of Arabia is 55 and the Godfather is first…… and why is Inception in the top 50. It was a great movie the first time then it lost all of its magic and becomes nothing more then a dull “its all a dream” movie…..

  • Michael

    I got a little pissed off when I saw Inception at fucking 7th

  • Zoe

    How is the Titanic not on here?

  • WagonBurner

    And why is Dances with Wolves not in the top 10?

  • http://www.facebook.com/shayft Shay Thompson

    probably the best list your ever gonna see, so hard to get it right but theres so many classics in here you cant go wrong. inception is controversial but lets face it, its an incredible idea for a film and i enjoyed it as much as any of these!

  • PeterMcPumpkin

    When Harry Met Sally should be #1

  • Sean

    Also here are two other films by Akira Kurosawa the director who made Seven Samurai.

    Yojimbo (1961)

    Sanjuro (1962)

    Now tell me where you think these would rank among Seven Samurai?

    Let me know bye.

  • Sean

    How about Yojimbo and Sanjuro wouldn’t be surprised if they close to Seven Samurai.

  • Sean

    I Meant ranked close to Seven Samurai.

  • Sean

    Also how about Ningen No Joken A.KA. The Human Condition

    Last but not least how about Modern Times.

    Directed and acted by Charlie Chaplin one of the funniest films you’ll see in your entire life!

  • koby

    what about Denzel Washington!

    man on fire, trainning day, american gangster.

    its a very very very very good movie

  • KnowsRealFilms

    How is Lawrence of Arabia not in the top 5? And really, Inception? Are you people HIGH?

  • Harish

    Predator is one of the finest Movie event hat been missed out

  • atticus.dean@gmail.com

    Unfortunately so many of the quotes picked are hardly the best in their respective films. How is Gladiator’s not “Are you not entertained”? How is The Bourne Ultimatum’s not “If you were in your office we’d be having this conversation face to face”?
    For shame.

  • nasrenjak

    Hollywood is not the ONLY place of movie production, you know that right? This list is like prepared by a 15 year old American college student who doesn’t aware rest of the world.

  • juliette rechatin

    This is a good list, I’ve seen most of them and can’t deny they made me smile (or cry/shout/etc). But I think there’s movies which are probably not very well known that should be here. I recently watched ‘the beginners’ (not to be mistaken with the inbetweeners!). Definitely worth a watch. Is City of God on your list? Because that movie, is frikin amazing too.

  • juliette Rechatin

    You did put city of God! Haha okay great list

  • PaulyB

    Obviously including all great movies is impossible, but I would add to this with

    Blade Runner (only the greatest sci-fi flick of all time!)
    The Fifth Element
    Highlander (Cheesy but frickin awesome)
    First Blood
    O Brother Where Art Thou
    Lethal Weapon
    Terminator 1
    Heat
    City of Lost Children
    Dune
    Twelve Monkeys
    Metropolis (Fritz Lang)
    Fistful of Dollars
    The Castle

    And no Bond films??? Thunderball at least, come on!

    Theres a few I would question in there, but that just might be personal taste. Apocalypse Now and Citizen Kane? Everyone raves about those, they straight up bored the shit outta me!

    Overall I thought the list was pretty good!

  • no name

    how could it be without titanic? this is not a real fact !!

  • mr.boodie

    The list of top 100 movies is the best I’ve ever seen but what about the following…

    Ghandi
    Titanic

    Dances with Wolves
    Scent of a Woman (whohaa)
    Mississippi Burning
    An American Warewolf in London
    The Exorcist (1973)
    Good Will Hunting
    300
    An Officer and a Gentleman
    Ghost
    Dirty dancing
    Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    When Harry met Sally
    Top gun
    The Fugitive
    Black Hawk Down
    The Untouchables

    Rambo (First Blood)
    Killbill 1

  • HowardTheDeck

    This is an awesome list. I know the work that goes into something like this, and I’m willing to bet that 90% of the commenters who had issues with the list would never have the ambition to make their own top 100 list of anything. Well written, researched, and formatted.

  • http://www.facebook.com/elsa.passaro Elsa Passaro

    Rain man deserves the top ten in my opinion!!!

  • Tator

    Movies are art. It’s made for human consumption. Could you make a list of top 100 favorite foods that everyone would agree to? Impossible. It’s not a science where you can extrapolate data and form a conclusion based on scientific theories. It’s pointless to argue over the list as it is pointless to even try and list the top 100 movies.

  • Prince

    i Don’t know who made this list but i’m sure that you don’t know much about movies.

    Because you missed-

    1.Ocean’s Eleven
    2.Snatch
    3.Troy
    4.The Avengers
    5.The Desendants

    and more. U should add atleast these movies to make a good list.

  • Lhk

    What the fuck happened to Titanic? And Forrest Gump should be on top 10, at least..

  • Romano

    Thank you for the best movie reviews..very informative

  • Tim

    Inglorious Basterds should be higher, and the notebook should’ve made the list

  • Callum

    On what earth is ratatouille better than die hard

  • jwd

    I like the list, but disagree with the placing. How are Reservoir Dogs and Raging Bull worse than Up and Wall-E. I mean those Pixar movies are good, but there not THAT good. Same with Inception. It was very good, but not as good as some other ones.

  • gdgs

    where’s Chinatown????

  • bunnygail

    scarface??? wheres it at?

  • Liv

    Gladiator – ‘Memorable Moments: The scene where Maximus finally avenges his wife and child’s murders by plunging his sword into the belly of Commodus.’

    Maximus did not stab Commodus in the belly… He was stabbed in the throat. Whoever wrote this should actually watch the movies he is talking about lol.

  • Anton Cantwell

    This list is such a joke. I’m only slightly irked because it was listed so highly on Google’s search page for best films of all time. But obviously anyone who thinks even 50% of the movies here deserve to be on the best movies of all time list haven’t really seen any good movies. Maybe watch some Eisenstein, Bergman, Kurosawa, Lean, Truffaut, Renoir, etc and then we’ll talk.

  • Diego

    No Scarface?

  • nnnn

    the list is great but interesting that the ‘Memorable Moments’ and ‘Why people love it’ sections are completely irrelevant to me. For all movies from the list i’ve seen, i remember them and like for something quite else than mentioned!

  • carlito

    there ‘s a lot of better movies out there that should be on this list . but i respect this guy’s taste in movies . its just that i think movies are like colors..to some people some colors are hideous and to others are pretty. don’t u think ?

  • cinemax

    i can see why this might be someone’s personal list of favourite movies, but as a general list in trying to let the audience at least get familiar with some cinematographic history this is the most absurd list i have ever seen, sooo much things wrong with this list i’m gonna keep it short.

    Ever heard of :

    Fritz Lang , Murneau,Carl th Dryer, Orson Welles, Lumiere , Sergio Leone, John Ford, Wim Wenders, Milos Forman, David Lynch, Roberto Benigni, Michale Haneke, Terence Malick, Terry Gilliam, Bily Wilder, Monty Python, Andry Tarkovsky, Charlie Kaufman, Sidney Lumet, Akira Kurosawa, Truffaut, David Lean, Kieslowski, ingmar bergman, Werner Herzog, Jim Jarmush, Victor Fleming, Jean Pierre Jeunet, Fréres D’ardennes, Tod Browning, louis bunuel. pfff this is just the top of my head, prolly 100 more directors who couldn’t come up with pirates of the caraiben in their worst nightmare while haveing a fever after eating bad cheese, seriously

  • clemdane

    As long as people write articles called “Top 100: Best Movies (of All-Time)” instead of “My personal favorite 100 movies of all time,” there will be arguments. What someone else thinks are the top 100 is only as valuable to me as their knowledge, taste, experience and sensibility. No name articles written by random websites are not even worth reading or getting upset over AFAIC.

    Good list except for all those Mob/Mafia movies. I really dont understand why people are interested in these pathetic, stupid, coward evil loosers. Weeping like a baby in one moment, sentimental with the family and killing/torturing in the next. They are the lowest of the low of the entire human race.

    I actually like some nazis much better even though they also were evil. They at least have some style (nice uniforms, parades, Wagner etc), they dont go around weeping and some also were very brave warriors (Albert Speer, Paul Hausser, Erwin Rommel, Heinz Guderian etc). But dont misunderstand I am NOT a nazi – Im actually pro Israel ….

  • James

    Where are TLOTR and why are they not 1,2 and 3?

  • Congo

    Amazing list. It is one that I don’t agree with completely, but found almost a dozen intriguing movies I have never heard of.

  • Mike876

    Ok the god father is a pretty good movie but i cant trust a list that has “saving private ryan” and “forest gump” any where near the high 40’s

  • Laki

    Where is “Man with a Movie Camera” and “Koyaanisqatsi”?? Come on! Pure cinema for the eyes…

    epic fail list. first of all die hard shouldn’t be inside on top 1000000000 best movies. same goes for jaws lion king the six sense and some others movies on the list. second movies like lord of the rings or terminator or batman are good movies bat the are nowhere on top 100 of all time. maybe with good will they are on top 1000 movies of all time. 4 the godfather 2 was better than the first and even that movie shouldn’t be hear. maybe on the top 200 movies of all time. 5 the 7 samurais are better from all the others movies above him combined. Finally where are Solaris, stalker, Bram stokers Dracula, odyssey 2001, metropolis, blade runner, Brazil, Logan s run and others classic movies.

  • Is this a joke

    Why the fuck are “The Dark Knight” and “Inception” so high on the list?

  • yep

    you have absolutely no sense of priorities. this list doesn’t make any sense, even though some chefs d’oeuvre figure in it.

  • IRAN

    i think this is very nice list ………..from IRAN

  • RogerRabbit5

    Two Words…Space Jam

    Where is titanic o.O

  • serpico93

    i don’t get it. why are you arguing about what movie is in top 5 or top 20? how is it possible for anyone to make a list which will be liked by everyone who reads it? i personally think that this list’s major mistake is the absence of david lynch…so what?

  • juvg

    WTF NO JOHN HUGHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! U SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • John

    I thought TItanic would be in that list at least

  • wefw

    what a poor ass list, no classics and crap like gladiator ? hahahaha try again

  • Dust

    Good movies on this list, have to disagree with the order however it is your opinion, but do you honestly believe ratatouille (and several subsequent movies on this list) are actually better than Life is Beautiful?

  • wmu4baby

    Once upon a time in America ? Scent of a woman ? V for vendetta ?

  • Cryle

    Dead Poet Society?

  • XD

    why does titanic is not included in this list ?

  • Bobby

    Not that the dark knight isnt a good movie… but number five of all time over everything else that is out there?! is that a joke??

  • analdestroyer

    In the #1 movie title, the author misspelled scarface

  • Ramirez

    why isnt titnic there it was a really good show

  • warda

    oh dear where is avatar??????????????????????????

  • Gut Feeling

    Clockwork Orange a Tarantino flick? I know you guys are such a big fans of Tarantino and stuff (wich is ok, I know we all have different opinions blah blah) but really, a lil’ respect for the good Stanley wouldn’t be bad, Kubrick’s a genius- either if you feel offended or not, Tarantino is a good one, but there’s no comparation, but if you’re going to make one, make sure to get your facts right, in this case, the order of the factors actually affects the product -

  • Stewart stanford

    DONNIE DARKO!!!!!

  • criticboi

    god father is a great movie one of my favourites but i dont understand why this cowboy movie is there instead of avatar or starwars one of the most viewed movies of all time.. in the end i believe the top 3 are the most correct ones there but then again this is just opinionated

  • XENOGEAR

    how about SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION?

  • George Kaiser

    The Prestige….!!! How can it not be in the list…… and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy should be on top followed by The Dark Knight Trilogy…

  • mmmooody

    the godfather and green mile best movies ever

  • mario

    thanksss

  • Nugy

    Okay, this may not be a popular comment and I know I’m opening myself up here for some serious downvoting. I commend the authour of this list for taking the time to put this together BUT I have an unwritten rule when reading lists like this. That rule is if I see Fight Club anywhere in the list I disregard the entire thing. There’s no way this film would make it into my top 100, maybe not even my top 1000. Now I’m not saying it’s a bad film, I quiet enjoyed watching it when it came out but I would never watch it again. It really annoys me seeing this on ‘Top’ lists everywhere, I mean it
    soooo overly used that I just can’t take any such list serious. And this
    was actually a fairly decent list up until then, a few choices I
    wouldn’t have made but to each his own and all that. My definition of the ‘Best Movies (of All-Time)’ is one that includes only films that I would watch over and over again and never get sick of, the top 3 in this list are some of my all time favourites and I have lost count how many times I’ve watched each of them (although as a personal choice, I would rate The Shawshank Redemption above The Godfather).

  • nicky

    oi! weres the inbetweeners flick. Best eva film i saw xoxoxoxox

  • ryan rendon

    Batman begins better than gladiator? This list is a joke

  • Spot

    Men made this list.

  • batuhan

    Are you kidding me gladiatör 89 ? best movie of all time

  • gettinbusylivin

    Nope. Shawshank is #1 and always will be in my book. Sorry, but you’re wrong – and imdb agrees with me.

  • Claudia

    Amelie should have been the first oneª

  • Alexandra S

    Where was Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor.?

  • HopeMc

    A lot of better movies weren’t listed and some terrible ones were.

  • dsmith534@gmail.com

    It will be great when retirement comes. Now is the time to travel. If you want to know where in derived my Bucket List from, it called 1000 sites to see before you die. Also, with regards to Trevon Martin vs. zimmerman, it appears that the Prosecution was only trying the case because of public pressure. Just think about the witnesses that they have called and the in arggresiviness of the prosecution. Does it appear that they are really bringing up issues that doesn’t help Trevon. Well, I hope every body had a wonderful fourth. The Dadd

  • KayyRochelle

    No Requiem For a Dream? That is such a great movie. One of the best of the turn of the century! Burstyn, Wayanes, Leto, and even Connelly gave amazing performances.

  • Lauren

    Literally, I’m just mad because I thought that Pulp Fiction’s best line was “Does he look like a bitch??!!!”
    Also, guys, The Rocky Horror Picture Show isn’t here. Neither is The Breakfast Club, Erin Brockovich, or High Fidelity. Or Jurassic Park. Or Dirty Dancing. Or Lost In Translation. A list like 100 Best Movies Ever is so subjective, therefore, this is one person’s idea of the 100 Best Movies in their mind. There are some seriously great films on this list.

  • Man from Croatia

    Wild Bunch should be here. And whers the Europian movie( except Italian) becouse there are also great movie directors like Bergman, Menzel,Forman(the fireman balls), Bunuel, Antonioni, Godard or movies from Alain Resnais ( Hiroshima Mon Amour and Last Year at Marienbadu) . But its good to see Rear Window in top 15.

  • Hound

    You sir have excellent taste and i guess it’s not easy rating so many good movies one after another, but c’mon…. Green Mile on 77th place? It should have been top 10 atleast!

  • gormenghastly

    Impossible task, but you emphasis on Spaghetti Westerns and crime dramas in absurd, nonetheless. As for Inception and the Dark Knight…how old are you, anyway?

  • dalimonte94

    Raiders of the Lost Ark is #1 I don’t care what anybody says.

  • cbi

    BEN HUR AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS should be on this list. clockwork orange was awful.

  • geeb

    why is terminator 2 so low on the list.. even before ratatouille?? is that a joke? lol

  • geeb

    btw…. i know 90% of the ppl on here are hating on your list, and need to realize that no 2 peoples taste are alike, IF YOU WANT DIFFERENT MOVIES ON A “BEST OF” LIST, MAKE ONEEEE YOURRSELFFF!

  • degree7

    I think I actually threw up in my mouth a little bit after reading through this list.

  • Eric Hollingshead

    WTF you must of forgot Rocky, I think rocky 1-4 (not 5 and 6, they were okay) deserves to be on this list.
