Top 250 Movies of All Time

Feb 1, 2009

Every time before I watch a movie, I check it’s ranking from IMDb (The Internet Movie Database); besides, I always check the top 250 movies of all time selected by IMDb users.

Now, I want to share this list and my experiences with you about these top movies. I will only observe the top one since the list is very long. If you want to access to the whole list, click here.

In this list, The Shawshank Redemption, Schindler’s List and 12 Angry Men are very special to me. You can click on the names of the movies if you want to get detailed information about them.

1. The Shawshank Redemption: This is actually my favourite movie ever. It is not because of it is rank, but it deeply affected me by its drama, its fluency, and the messages it contain about the life.

2-3: Godfather Part I&II: I have this amazing trilogy, but I haven’t watched all the 3 parts. I will finish the trilogy in the first time that I will have a chance to.

4. Buono, il brutto, il cattivo., Il: I have no idea about this movie, but I’ve just learned that its English name is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

5. The Dark Knight: It is a classic Batman movie but the best. Watch it.

6. Pulp Fiction: This film is in my archive, but I haven’t watched it yet.

7. Schindler’s List: This one is the movie which led Steven Spielberg to fame; it won 7 Oscars. Moreover, it is one of my favourite. It is about the hard times of Jewish people in WWII. Suddenly, a man who is a member of the Nazi Party, Oskar Schindler, appears and helps them.

8. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: I have no idea about this one. I will try to watch on my leisure time.

9. 12 Angry Men: This is one of my favourite movies; furthermore, I have red its novel. It has amazing messages to humanity about racism and egalitarianism.

10. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back: A classic episode of Star Wars. No need to comment.
