List of Top Ten Best Movies:
10 – The Matrix (1999)
The Matrix is a very vivid depiction of how the human mind is a comparable to Pandora’s Box. The main role is played by Keanu Reeves, known as Neo. Dividing the line between reality and imagination, The Matrix pokes at how the real world can be considered as a mere illusion in comparison to any other.
9 – Fight Club (1999)
This movie is an intense, grotesque depiction of how a power hungry and psychotic man can gain so much foothold in the hearts of men that they would follow him blindly. The roles played by Brad Pitt, and Edward Norton were executed very well in my opinion. The grittiness and brutality in the movie added volumes of expression and emotion.
8 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
The top 10 movies ever list could never be complete without the addition of Star Wars. The Star Wars series has revolutionized galactic science fiction movies ever since its conception back in the early 90’s. With an intense plot and dramatic battle scenes that are fought on gargantuan proportions, this movie is worth watching even for the hundredth time.
7 – Requiem for a Dream (2000)
A very disturbing movie to say the least, but the fact that this movie makes one question what they have been doing thus far. The climactic brilliance in which the movie shined was one to truly praise.
6 – Gladiator (2000)
Gladiator has been a movie that made us cry, laugh as well as cringe in horror to the grim battle scenes of the Arena. Russell Crowe hit the nail on the head with this role and certain lines of the movie such as; “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next”, left us viewers in complete awe.
5 – The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
No this movie did not have fancy cars, or giant explosions, or dramatic prolonged battles. Yet still the plot and acting of this movie made it a beauty to watch. The story line will warm your heart at times, while at others it will seemingly chill you to the bone.
4 – The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003)
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was a movie experience that left entire audiences with goose bumps. Whether it be the terrifying visuals of the ogres, or captivating landscapes The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was a movie that will always be an amazing experience.
3 – Titanic (1997)
Arguably the most highly regarded romantic tragedy of all time. Leonardo DiCaprio played the role of Jack who was a lovable character that fell in love with a woman who he ended up giving his life for. As the Titanic sunk in the last few parts of the movie, tears could be seen in the eyes of even the most hardened men.
2 – Forrest Gump (1994)
Run Forrest run! Truly the most inspiring movie of its time, Forrest Gump shows that a will to want succeed is all that you need to make your dreams come true. Tom Hanks played the role of a mentally challenged adult who just decided to take off in his life, and run!

The best movie of all time, has to be The Godfather. With lines that left bone chilling effects to whoever watched the movie as well as a great role played as by Al Pacino, and Marlon Brando exponentially multiplied the entertainment value to this great movie!
