  • interesting list. i like the variety. aside from harry potter i love all the movies you listed, especially the old classics like to kill a mockingbird, taxi driver and 12 angry men

  • 10. Pulp Fiction (1994) - Probably one of my top 3 movies
    9. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001) - I could never get into any of the Harry Potter stuff.
    8. Catch Me If You Can (2002) - Saw it once. Meh.
    7. Toy Story (1995) - My kids liked it.
    6. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) - A true classic
    5. Taxi Driver (1976) - Another true classic
    4. Back to the Future (1985) - My first real 1-on-1 date with who would eventually become my wife was to see this movie. :-)
    3. 12 Angry Men (1957) - Another true classic
    2. The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - Another of my top 3 movies
    1. The Dark Knight (2008) - I cannot get into comic book based movies

  • I generally go for the older classics, Vertigo and other Hitchcock, ormolu recent ones like Seabiscuit and Empire Falls.

    • There are so many more movies I could add to this list! I might make another one tomorrow lol

  • Very nice movie choices. Most of them I seen a few I didn't. The ones I saw I enjoyed watching so very nice movie choices.😃

  • I'm not into movies but I've watched 'Catch me if you can' with my dad. He liked it but I was like "meh".

    Sounds like a good list tho :)

  • I have seen a few of these movies but not all of them. Titanic has no place on a top 10 list?

  • very cool! these are by far 10 of the most highest rated movies in IMDB and I seen a few of them all so I believe they deserve their ratings.

    till then I was wondering if you can please check my new Mytake I wrote earlier?

  • Toy Story, my brothers used to love that, when they were kids. My personal f. a. v. is Falling Down, a man once had control of his life and the world around him and then, one bad day, he discovered that he didn't. his wife didn't like his uncontrollable rage, so she divorced him and kept him from their daughter, got a restraining order. Also, he also takes over gangland and the gang is right, s. m. h. everybody and everything is against him and he can't take it, offs himself on a bridge, I will watch again later on today, which is what I plan to do.

  • Probably agree with all of them but I never got around to watching

    2. The Shawshank Redemption

    How was it?

    • It was so close between The Dark Knight and Shawshank Redemption, it's probably a tie for me. Heath Ledger just did a really good job with the joker.

  • I'm not a big specialist but my list would absolutely begin with Apollo 13.
    I like well dramatized movies based on true facts :D
    In this case the true facts were a thriller and the movie replicates that perfectly, including great actors.

  • I deem this awesome for mentioning 12 Angry Men! Wonderful movie. Back to the Future is my favorite movie of all time though.

    • The hardest part of making thus list was ordering the movies. I'd put them all in first place if I could.

    • 12 angry men is such a good movie

  • Nice list, well, we agree on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Back To The Future :D

  • Good list, could recommend it to just about anyone.

  • Great list. Taxi Driver is also not only one of my all-time favorite Robert De Niro movies but all-time favorite movies in general.

  • Great Movies! Wasn't expecting Catch me if you Can haven't seen that on many lists, personal favourite of mine. Have you seen Django Unchained? that and the dark knight are my number 1. Admittedly haven't seen all of pulp yet :/
