Top 20 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time According to the Viewers. Who better to judge the best movies of all time than the people who make them? Movies are made for the entertainment of people, only people have the power to make a movie hit or flop, which depends on their viewership. However,

Top 20 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time According to the Viewers

some movies at the time of their release are unnoticed by the people and after a span of years they had got cult status in the Film Industry. One of its Prime example is ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ movie, at present this movie requires no introduction.

We are going to take a look at Top 20 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time According to the Viewers

Let’s delve into it:

1. The Godfather

Top 20 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time According to the Viewers

IMDB Rating: 9.2

As one of the most respected films ever, The Godfather has repeatedly been recognized as one of the best movies ever made. Never before had any film taken the insider perspective on a crime family the way it did and besides having one of the greatest casts, screenplays, and directors of all time it had a significant impact on western culture that has come to be known as the “Godfather Effect”.

2. The Shawshank Redemption

Top 20 Best Hollywood Movies of All Time According to the Viewers

IMDB Rating: 9.3

The warm, leathery embrace of Morgan Freeman’s narration… The reassuringly Gary Cooper-ish rumple of Tim Robbins’ face… Odd that a movie which features such harshness and tragedy should remain a feel-good perennial — even odder when you consider it was a box-office flop on release. Few directorial debuts are so deftly constructed; no surprise, then, that Frank Darabont’s yet to top it.

3. Pulp Fiction

 

IMDB Rating: 8.9

Known for its eclectic dialogue, non-linear story line, and numerous pop culture references, Pulp Fictionwas nominated for seven Oscars and won the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film festival in France.

4. Schindler’s List

IMDB Rating: 8.9

Based on the novel Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally, Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List not only won seven Academy Awards but also went down as one of the greatest films of the century. In it, Spielberg chronicles the life of Oskar Schindler, a businessman living in World War II Germany who saved the lives of thousands of Jews by offering them employment.

5. The Dark Knight

IMDB Rating: 9.0

Easily as influential on the genre as that other summer ’08 comic-book movie, Iron Man, Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel works wonders because he never saw it as a superhero film. It’s closer to a Michael Mann crime epic — except instead of Pacino and De Niro in a diner, you get a bloke dressed as a bat and a psychotic clown in a police interrogation room. With, er, Aaron Eckhart as Val Kilmer.

6. Citizen Kane

IMDB Rating: 8.4

Although after its initial release it faded from the spotlight, after World War II, Citizen Kane received critical acclaim abroad in countries like France. This led to the movie be “rediscovered” by American audiences and eventually achieving the legendary status it enjoys today at the top of many best movies lists, just like this one.

7. The Godfather Part II

IMDB Rating: 9.0

Winning six Academy Awards, The Godfather: Part II has been selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry and is widely considered one of the few examples in cinematic history where the sequel was on par with the original.

8. Godfellas

IMDB Rating: 8.7

Directed by Martin Scorsese, Goodfellas is often considered to be one of the greatest mob movies ever and was the inspiration behind David Chase’s popular HBO series The Sopranos.

9. Forrest Gump

IMDB Rating: 8.8

Robert Zemeckis’ affable stroll through some of America’s most turbulent decades, as seen through the childlike eyes of the simple-but-successful Forrest — the role which earned Tom Hanks his second Oscar in two years. And it says a lot about the film’s emotional heft that it managed to win an Oscar itself, when it was in competition with both Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption.

10. Star Wars Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

IMDB Rating: 8.8

After struggling through the production phase and being released to mixed reviews, The Empire Strikes Back eventually crept its way up to become not only the most popular film in the Star Wars Saga but also one of the top grossing movies of all time.

11. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

IMDB Rating: 8.9

Anyone who bangs on about all those endings is missing the many joys of Peter Jackson’s Academy Award-laden trilogy-closer. It has some of the most colossal and entertaining battle scenes ever mounted; it has an awesome giant spider; it has that fantastic dramatic-ironic twist when Gollum saves the day through his own treachery; and it has that bit where Eowyn says, “I am no man”. Deserves. Every. Oscar.

12. 12 Angry Men

IMDB Rating: 8.9

Famous for being filmed almost entirely on one set,12 Angry Men follows a jury as it attempts to reach a unanimous decision. It wasn’t until the film came out on television long after its initially disappointing performance at the box office that it achieved its legendary status.

13. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

IMDB Rating: 8.6

It’s nuts: we’re now as far, far away from the release of Star Wars as 1977 audiences were from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. And yet George Lucas’ cocktail of fantasy, sci-fi, Western and World War II movie remains as culturally pervasive as ever. It’s so mythically potent, you sense in time it could become a bona-fide religion.

14. The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

IMDB Rating: 8.8

The first of two Lord of the Rings films on this list,Fellowship of the Ring became famous among fans and critics alike for being the most faithful adaptation of Tolkien’s book.

15. Inception

IMDB Rating: 8.8

Is Christopher Nolan going to make a Bond movie? Well, with Inception he kind of already has. Except, instead of a British secret agent, we get a freelance corporate dream-thief. And the big climactic action sequence is so huge it takes up almost half the movie, and is actually three big action sequences temporally nested inside each other around a surreal, metaphysical-conflict core.

16. Fight Club

 

IMDB Rating: 8.8

As one of the most controversial and talked about films of the 1990s, Fight Club had an incredible impact on popular culture and almost overnight Tyler Durden’s line, “The first rule of Fight Club is – you do not talk about Fight Club” became one of the most popular quotes of the decade.

17. The Matrix

IMDB Rating: 8.7

A Wachowski brothers masterpiece, The Matrix has been widely regarded as one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever and besides influencing the genre heavily it set a new standard in Hollywood for action fight scenes with its now famous “bullet time” effect.

18. 2001: A Space Odyssey

IMDB Rating: 8.3

It is arguably his greatest gift to cinema, an infinitely ambitious vision of a space-faring future whose narrative centres on the most pivotal moment in human evolution since some ape-man first twatted another ape-man with an old bone. Graceful, gorgeous, unwearied by time’s passing. Rather like that monolith.

19. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

IMDB Rating: 8.9

Sergio Leone sets three renegades against each other in a treasure hunt backdropped against the chaos and madness of the American Civil War. The result is the movie on his CV which best balances art and entertainment. Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef are great value as Blondie and Angel Eyes, but it’s Eli Wallach’s Tuco who steals this Wild West show: “When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.”

20. Terminator 2: The Judgment Day

IMDB Rating: 8.5

Making Arnie’s T-800 a protector rather than killer for part two could have been a shark-jump moment for the Terminator series, but we’re talking about James Cameron here. So it paid off — especially as this Terminator was just as much a student in human behaviour (with John Connor his teacher) as guardian, with some darkly comical results (“he’ll live”). Is it really better than the original? In terms of scale and sheer, balls-out action spectacle, yes.

So, thats all from us . Feel free to tell us your thoughts on this list in th below commen box.

THANK YOU…
