What are some movies that you consider to be 10/10?

  1. The Silence of the Lambs, for its genre, it's utterly seamless, havinh one of the best cast line ups of the past 30 years really helps sell the realism of the movie, 10/10 from me.

  2. The look on the doctor's face when he realizes Sarah Connor is not crazy is one of, if not the best, payoffs in any film.

  3. Tremors has been described as the "perfect movie" in that every character is a rational actor with clear motivations, every scene forwards the plot, and nothing could be removed without making the film worse off.

  4. I loved Tremors as a kid. I almost don’t want to watch it again in fear that is doesn’t hold up well. I watched it easily 20-30 times as a teenager

  5. I love all the tremors movies. The first one absolutely the best one. But I love a cheesy movie and the sequels are definitely cheesy

  6. Only saw Tremors for the first time a couple of months ago, so I don't have any nostalgia tinting my view of it. Still one of the best films I've ever seen.

  7. Jurassic Park, the first one. That movie was so wildly successful that it lead to an entire franchise despite subsequent movies paling in comparison. And it's because the first movie was just that good. Amazing directing, amazing acting, revolutionary use of CGI mixed with modern animatronics. The subsequent trilogy is finished and it's almost undoubtedly certain that we'll see more films at some point.

  8. I recently read (listened to) the book after having seen the movie a dozen times. The characters are so different but it's just as exciting as the movie

  9. One of the only horror movies where the protagonist doesn't make stupid decisions. Every time you think "why doesn't he just do X, Y and Z?", a few seconds later he does it, and things still go wrong. He makes every logical decision that he can every time, and yet the Thing always remains two steps ahead.

  10. The first time I saw this movie, I was floored by how perfect it was. Once the movie ended, I started it all over again.

  11. This is mine too! My 4 year old watches it multiple times a week, I had never seen it until she asked to watch it a few months back on hbo max, it’s perfection.

  12. That movie has this strange quality where EVERY scene is so composed and Iconic...it feels like Spielberg planned every single shot to be as lean and epic as it possibly could.

  13. Shawshank redemption. No matter how many times I watch it I don't skip or miss a single scene. It's so captivating and what a great story telling

  14. One of my favorite quotes from Shawshanks redemption is "I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really: Get busy living, or get busy dying"

  15. I avoided watching this film for so long because I thought there was no way it could live up to the hype. You know when the expectation is such that nothing will ever measure up.

  16. This is my all time favorite movie. I never get tired of it. The fact that Joe Pesci was doing this film and Home Alone at the same time makes it funny to me. Dude had to go from hardcore gangster with constant cursing, to a robber in one of the best Christmas family movies 🤣

  17. Seven. Great acting, suspenseful plot and memorable ending. Everything you could wish from a thriller.

  18. What I love is the atmosphere. The grime and dirty sides of a big city. The constant sirens coming on the background. It’s wonderfully made.

  19. Schindler's List and not even because it's an important movie. Everybody involved and not even just the actors brings their A-Game hard.

  20. My favorite story about that film is that when Spielberg showed John Williams the film, the composer walked outside for a bit, returned, and said “Steven you need a better composer for the film.”

  21. The Lord of the Rings are genuine masterpieces. They won 17 Oscars in a genre that is never taken seriously. Absolutely incredible filmmaking.

  22. I have seen these movies countless times and the YOU SHALL NOT PASS scene makes me feel the exact same with the 190th watch that it did the first viewing. It’s a masterclass in acting.

  23. Still blows my mind that the original Aragorn didn't take it seriously and was dropped after a lot of shooting. I'll bet that guy lives in regret.

  24. And thank god it’s filmed with all those set pieces and still looks good today. Technology aside, the movie will never not look good and will keep its immersion and mystery due to how they filmed it. It’s truly a timeless classic

  25. Couldn’t agree more, Stephen kings best movie adaptation imo. And the whole reason I love Tom Hanks so much :)

  26. People need to understand that this movie was absolutely groundbreaking and mindblowing upon its release. There had been nothing like it. It’s still in my personal top 10.

  27. I was waiting for this one to show up. Lots of other good choices, but there has never been a movie since that grabbed you by the short hairs in the very first scene and never lets you go like this one. That first scene with Trinity, "Your men are already dead," the costumes, the set dressing, and that's all before you get to the first "bullet time" scene.

  28. I remember getting to the end credits of this movie, and realising only then that there is not one note of music in it. Yet the tension throughout is amazing. Fantastic film.

  29. Absolutely. No matter how many times you watch the film, it still has it. For me, Back to the Future is as close to literal perfection as you can get. In the field of opinions, I think of myself as an open person, BUT HOW CAN SOMEONE "NOT LIKE" BACK TO THE FUTURE?

  30. That is one of my favorite movies of all time; it really is a work of art. . . Between making you fall in love with a pair of robots who have no dialogue for 15 min, telling a great story, sending several messages without bashing you over the head with them, and then the amazing world building and visuals; it is a complete win.

  31. I've long maintained that I didn't have a true favorite movie, but had to reevaluate a few weeks ago when I realized that I had watched Hot Fuzz 4 times in 3 days.

  32. Agree. The trilogy is really a whole thing for me. I don't have a favorite. The whole trilogy is pretty much perfect and I highly doubt anything will ever come close to it.

  33. It's great for a few reasons. First it does a good job of representing Asian characters in an era when that sort of thing wasn't super common. Secondly how often do you get a film where arguably the main character is also the sidekick and comic relief. Throughout most of the film Kurt Russel's iconic Jack Burton is just so completely useless and out of his depth, but does such a good job of pretending he's not completely freaked out.

  34. How could Godfather 1 and 2 be this far down the list? What could they have done to be treated so disrespectfully?

  35. If I ever come across this movie already playing somewhere, I can sit down completely engaged until the end. It does such a great job of both satirizing and memorializing Star Trek OS.

  36. Inglorious basterds has one of the best openings to any film ever. The milk, the pipe, the tension... every detail is amazing!

  37. Only complaint was that it’s too short 😔 Read the book before watching the movie and there’s so much more everything, the movie feels like a blink in comparison

  38. Absolutely stunning shots, great action, and high intensity conversations. Almost every single character in that movie feels like they are doing what makes the most sense for that character. Even the side characters get some unspoken character development. Top 10 movies in my list.

  39. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb It’s a Cold War based satire that is pretty incredible.

  40. I recently watched the Grand Budapest Hotel and it felt like a 10. I’ve watched it three more times since.

  41. I always thought forrest gump was the perfect movie with something for everyone. Dramatic, thought proviking, good amounts of humor, and can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike for different reasons

  42. I had very low expectations going into this movie and was completely surprised by it. I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. So good.

  43. princess bride! my personal favorite movie of all time. I love and accept every single flaw it has. the number of amazing quotes is frankly insane.

  44. The feast scene with a monster and fairies. Still gives me shivers. One of the creepiest creatures in cinematography.

  45. I feel like a psycho for loving mad max fury road. But that movie is perfection. I can’t wait for the wasteland(2023) and furiosa (2024)

  46. I watched Death to Smoochy again recently, God it's so good. Directed by Danny Devito, starring Edward Norton, Robin Williams, throw in Jon Stewart. I've seen it so many times, and it's still, chef's kiss

  47. Aliens, Alien, Blade Runner, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Jaws, Schindlers list, Jurassic Park, Godfather 1 & 2, Apocalypse Now, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Gladiator, Shawshank Redemption

  48. It's incredible how far I scrolled to see an OT Star Wars comment and haven't found one. I don't think there have ever been a more infliential movie than a New Hope, a more perfect sequel than ESB, and the best fight scene between Vader and Luke in RotJ and a better trilogy overall. I used to be crazy in love with the movies. I would feel a jiggle every time it was on. A special feeling no other movie ever gave me. Unfortunately I don't have it anymore and I think it's because of Disney saturating it. Still I will never forget the feeling the title crawl gave me.
