Now I have seen over my time on this site a bunch of Top 10 opinions. But I haven't given my personal picks. And I'll bet your probably asking: What's your top 10 movies of all time? Well, today I am going to give you contributors and readers my Top 10 movies of all time. This will consist of films I found the most enjoyable and the most epic.
10. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
Kicking off this list is a comedy that proves that 'Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.' I am of course quoting Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which is, for me, one of the funniest movies out there. It was directed by John Hughes and released back in 1986. The main character Ferris was played by Matthew Broderick, who was as funny as he could get in years. This movie had me laughing my head off from start to finish and it still brings out the best in my favorite comedy of all time. Great comedy and jokes and a very outrageous villain in Jeffrey Jones makes this movie everything a comedy should have.
9. Star Wars (1977)
Moving to spot #9, I have picked the movie that changed the way people envisioned the cinema and is still one of the most successful films of all time: Star Wars. It started a saga that has captivated generations from 1977 onward and is finally getting another sequel (in Holiday 2015). It has spawned two sequels, a prequel trilogy (which wasn't as successful) and now a sequel trilogy. But I think this movie will go down in history as one of the cinema's best crowning achievements that George Lucas' epic masterpiece has and will continue to captivate generations for years to come.
8. Toy Story 3 (2010)
At #8, this movie is the second sequel that launched computer-animated films. And that film is Toy Story 3. Though I enjoyed the heck out of the original and the first sequel, I found that this Toy Story movie has as much laughs and heart as the first two did. And with the same great-escape method that the other films had, this movie has had me with a ton of laughs and some sniffles here and there every now and then. And everyone involved in the film's cast fit their voice roles perfectly. Especially Ned Beatty as evil Lotso, who may go down as Pixar's most sinister villain since Hopper from A Bug's Life.
7. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013)
Who says Will Ferrell can't make a Top 10 list? At #7, this movie is another comedy but with a lot funnier things than its predecessor. I'm talking Ron Burgundy and company in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Now I admit I haven't seen the first Anchorman movie yet. But I will eventually. Now this movie also had me laughing my ass off with every joke and there is another battle between various news teams with a whole slew of cameos from Sacha Baron Cohen, Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Vince Vaughn (from the first film) Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford and Amy Poehler. And according to Ron Burgundy 'No touching of the hair and face'. A great movie with more laughs than the first film and a WHAMMY of a great time.
6. The Dark Knight Trilogy
Working our way up to the top, we are at #6. And this one is a three-part movie being The Dark Knight Trilogy. The only word I would describe this superhero franchise is EPIC!!! Christopher Nolan has delivered a Batman franchise that tells a really great story about Bruce Wayne and his journey as Batman. He comes across several villains including Ra's al Ghul, Joker and Bane, who all matched up against Batman perfectly. And this is downright the best, best, BEST superhero trilogy of all time period!!!
5. Jurassic Park
One can argue that #5 on this list is one of the best Spielberg films out there. Jurassic Park is definitely that!!! Filled with a mystery thriller story, and all around CGI Dinosaurs, this movie captivated the imaginations of several generations ever since the summer of 1993. Action, thrills and dinosaurs galore!!! Everything about this film has had me wanting to watch this movie again and again!!! It had awesome acting and a fun yet thrilling way to capture my imagination.
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Now you probably guessed I was going to put one of the Lord Of The Rings films on this list. And you were right. #4 on this list is the epic conclusion to the most epic movie trilogy of all time: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. With action, adventure, drama and a hint of romance, this movie is an all out war for the future of Middle Earth against Sauron and his minions, who launch their final assault upon Gondor in the world of men. All the while, Frodo and Sam continue their journey to Mount Doom so that they can destroy the One Ring once and for all. And this film is remarked as the only film in history to be nominated for and won the most Academy Awards. One of the best films of all time gets the #4 spot!!! But I still loved the other two. Just not as much as the finale.
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Now these next two films are superhero films (aside from #6), and they all connect!!! So #3 goes to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It takes up what happens in The Avengers and combines a political thriller tone which is a first for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to do. Loved the characters chemistry with one another. Great action, awesome acting and a story that connects to The Avengers, which in my opinion, is the best one that connects to it. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson worked so well together. I kind of saw it as a brother-sister relationship throughout the whole film. And I also loved seeing Robert Redford's villain Alexander Pierce, which was totally unexpected for all of us. First time I saw this movie, my mind was just blown away. So thank you Marvel for giving us another great story.
2. The Avengers
Speaking of Marvel, in #2, they made cinematic history with The Avengers!!! It took them a few years to bring all these great characters together with five build up films to what will go down in history as the first time that a bunch of movie characters ever came together (at least until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice next year). And everyone still fit into their roles perfectly. Can not wait for Avengers Age of Ultron, which hits in just a near few days!!! Great chemistry, a devious villain in Tom Hiddleston's Loki and an excellent climax in New York which has a strong impact on several characters in the Phase 2 films (and in Avengers Age of Ultron at that).
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
You probably have guessed that this was going to be on my list. And you were right. #1 goes to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. The second half of the epic finale brings Harry, Ron and Hermione back to Hogwarts to fight their ultimate showdown with Voldemort and his Death Eater army. And it all ends with a big bang!!! Now being a fan of the Harry Potter series, I knew that this was going to happen. This movie is downright AMAZING!!! J.K. Rowling has delivered such an amazing story about a boy who goes to wizard school and has to fight an evil warlord who is bent on killing him and conquering the world. It took 10 years to bring it all together from page to screen. Loved the epic battles all around Hogwarts as we said goodbye to the best film series of all time!!! The epic conclusion of the best book-to-film series out there totally gets #1!!!
So that is my Top 10 list as of right now. It may be surpassed by just a few films in the near future so keep a lookout because I may change this.
