This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
They’re the best of the best. In this video, WatchMojo.com counts down their picks for the top 10 best Best Picture Oscar-winning movies. Due to the huge number of excellent Academy Award-winning movies, we narrowed their list by focusing on those that offered more than just a few laughs and gasps. Their list includes the cinematic landmarks that nabbed the Oscar, and ultimately made Hollywood what it is today.
"These are the films that made Hollywood great. These movies are selected based on their iconic status, critical acclaim, box-office success, and watchability; and not what your film studies professor or most artsy movie critics would pick."

1-10: The Top 10
11-15: Honorable Mentions
We Just Watched a Movie is a podcast about watching great movies and then ranking them against one another. We've pulled together Time magazine's All-TIME 100 Movies, the 20 additions to the list made in May, 2012, and Time's 10 Greatest Movies of the Millennium (just to add a few more modern movies to the mix).
One thing the writers at Time did not do with these lists was rank them in any sort of order. We choose to rank these movies on this list and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. As we watch a randomized version of the list, we will pit each movie against its brethren and see who rises to the top.
This list represents the order in which we've watched the movies. Join us on the website to see how we've each chosen to order them, and be sure to give us your own rankings in the episode comments.
Join us in our decade-based film retrospective, as we delve backwards all the way from 2009 to 1910. Most decade-based best movie lists grant you a whooping 50-100 entries, which makes perfect sense given all the years you have to take into consideration. But what if you were defining a decade in just ten films? Showcasing the very best of its cinematic offerings? Which movies would you recommend to somebody who might only watch ten movies from a given decade? First off, it’s the Noughties.
The Noughties, for anyone who is still confused by that term (although I doubt anybody is), is the years 2000 through 2009. And although there will always be a nostalgic clamoring for the golden days of cinema – a time when all ideas seemed fresh and groundbreaking, and sequels and franchises were a little less… everywhere – the Noughties have proven themselves a spectacular era of filmmaking, albeit a decade somewhat lacking in identity.
There has been innovation, of course, what with the rise of digital filmmaking, James Cameron’s Avatar, and Pixar’s string of acclaimed masterpieces. This decade, too, saw the rise of the superhero film, a subgenre which continues to dominate the box office with relentless force (and shows no sign of slowing down). And yet both independent and studio films have continued to find audiences in projects of all shapes and sizes. Here’s what we’ve come up with, although everybody’s list is sure to be completely different.
25 years have been incredibly great for the advancement of film as an artform. We’ve seen the potential that 3D can achieve if it isn’t being used as a gimmick, the rise of independent filmmaking take precedence unlike it ever has before and the development of digital filmmaking cutting costs and sometimes artistic merit. Some of the greatest films of all time have graced our screens in the last 25 years and we’ve also been privileged enough to see the brilliance of some truly amazing filmmakers in the process. It’s probably hard for any cinema lover born after 1988 to not remember a time when Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, David Fincher, Wes Anderson, The Coen Brothers, Christopher Nolan and Steven Soderbergh weren’t putting out one incredible work after the other.
"These are the movies that had you sitting back, nodding your head and muttering "This is awesome" under your breath; that offered up badass characters and unforgettable soundtracks; that were slick, suave, and super smooth. Above all, though, these movies embraced a sense of breezy effortlessness that seeped off the screen and into the aisles, essentially transferring their sense of stylishness and chic to everybody and anybody who saw 'em..."

Whether it was because of Netflix, online movie downloads or decreasing household budgets, Americans went to the movies less and less over the last decade. So filmmakers, determined to get people into theaters, went to new heights to attract audiences. Pushing the comedic envelope with movies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, using technology to create an otherworldly experience in films like Avatar, or just tugging at our heartstrings, they created some of the best movies of all time. Need proof? Just read our list of the top 10 movies of the last decade, and if we've missed any of your favorites, let us know!
This list sorted by year!
The list represents what the staff at Yahoo! Movies feels represents the 100 essential films to see before you die.
"To choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic that you absolutely have to see."

"It’s one thing to make a list of movies that are essential. But it’s something else to make a list of movies that are funny. So after some heated debates, a shouting match or two and at least one pie fight, the staff at Yahoo! Movies presents this list of the "100 Funniest Movies to See Before You Die.”
We didn’t necessarily choose the “best” comedies out there but those we see as the funniest. An adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale,” for instance, might technically be a comedy although it’s seriously lacking in yuks. Meanwhile “Pulp Fiction” – which is on the list -- might not seem like an obvious choice, but provides more belly laughs in it than anything Kevin James has ever done.
Anyway, some of these movies you might have seen, others you might not have heard of, but all of them are pretty darned funny."
"It's easy for classic movie lovers to be nostalgic for Hollywood's "Golden Age" of the 1930s and '40s. And many cineastes will tell you that film as an art reached its peak in the late '60s and early '70s. But the truth is there have been remarkable movies made in the 1990s and 2000s. From big budget blockbusters, to breakout independent films, to discoveries from around the world, we have seen exciting and groundbreaking cinematic work created in the last two decades. For our second installment of our "100 Movies to See Before You Die," we decided to highlight these "Modern Classics" made between 1990 and 2009. Like our first list, we chose movies based on their artistry, originality, and pure cinematic entertainment. And even we were surprised by the results. Look through the list below to see our choices for the top movies made in the last twenty years. ... And take a look at the original "100 Movies to See Before You Die" to see the seventeen films that appear on both lists."
Many movies are good, some are great, but only a select few can be called truly "essential." After heated discussions, long negotiations, and a shouting match or two, the staff at Yahoo! Movies has put together this list of the 100 films you must see before you die. To choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic that you absolutely have to see.
