Mine is The Truman Show. Beautiful story with an incredible performance from Jim Carrey. Contains some of the best scenes in movie history, and is one of the rare science fiction movies about ideas, not about explosions (I like Moon for similar reasons). Andrew Niccol's ability to make the smallest of bit parts seem like fully fleshed out characters is unparalleled (look at the security checkpoint guy at the end of "Gattaca" if you don't believe me). No matter how many times I watch it, I find something new to love about it, and Christof's speech is one of cinema's greatest, along with Karen Eiffel's in "Stranger Than Fiction" and Samuel L. Jackson's at the end of "Pulp Fiction." Contains one of the most uplifting endings ever and perhaps the greatest ending line in cinema history. I really can't say enough about this film!

are these in any order?.i hope not,the empire strikes back,halloween,raiders,district 9 are all in my top 10.
Oct 17th 2011, 14:22
The usual bunch then, just once Id like to see a 100 worst films list..
Oct 17th 2011, 16:05
It's not in order 1 to 100, it's done alphabetically.
And I liked it, it was really good and show's how people have different interests in films, I mean there are some in there that I would never expect to see in a top 100. And there are ones that I would have wanted in there but sadly didn't make it, and ones that I wanted in there and did make it. So it made it very interesting.

I have 2 films which for me completely eclipse all others. The first is Big Fish: Tim Burton at his best, creating a fantastical world that always seems real, great characters and a stunning performance from Ewan McGrego which proves that Burton doesn't need Johnny Depp to make a great movie! The second is Inside I'm Dancing: such an underrated movie, but so beautifully done. Stunning performance by James McAvoy in a career-best performance, and an ending that never fails to make me feel the same way I did when I first watched it. Also, gutted not to see nay Studio Ghibli movies on the list! Grave of the Fireflies would definitely be on my top 10...

Awesome, my quote was used!
Oct 17th 2011, 20:49
Good list but some people are fools
Oct 17th 2011, 20:56
There should be a least favorite films list! My vote is Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Oct 17th 2011, 21:58
This is a great list of diverse films. So glad there was love for The Thing and Tarantino. Next a 100 best quotes as voted by us...? :)

Very glad that my South Park suggestion made it in as it often gets overlooked for it's crudeness which is a damn shame as it is truly magnificent and unique (apart from the show of course).

I'm slightly confused by some glaring (in my opinion) omissions. Godfather (1 or 2), Miller's Crossing, Schindler's List, National Lampoon's Vacation, Burton's Batman, Superman, X2, Die Hard, Aladdin, Gran Torino,,,,I could go on (and apologies if any of the movies named are in there and I missed them somehow). I know that we all have different taste but there is NO WAY that Armageddon should be there. If Michael Bay should get a nod at all it would have to be Con Air surely? Entertaining list anyway but I agree with some of the other comments: it is good to see genre movies so well represented and it would be great to compile a 100 worst list. Could probably just get Dalidab's top 100 and print that to save time ;-)
Oct 18th 2011, 21:50
Bay didnt direct Con Air, Simon West did.. i didnt bother to read the list because its mostly the same movies every year ...
Oct 18th 2011, 23:09
Well corrected Hadouken76. Sorry. Still better than Armageddon, though by strange coincidence I think that Steve Buscemi is the best thing in both! I'm off to go and smack my nads with a hammer in a bid that I can forgive myself such an elementary director based error.

1) Yay, my film got picked! :D 2) For those of you complaining about "glaring omissions": "We've polled Total Film's Facebook fans and Twitter followers (via tumblr) for their favourite films. NOT NECESSARILY THE "GREATEST" MOVIES EVER MADE, just the ones that make them feel warm and tingly when they watch them."

Fair comment MikeyRix. Makes the list more interesting I agree and I didn't mean to complain or appear as though I might be.
Oct 19th 2011, 19:38
2) Something's Gotta Give
Not necessarily the best films ever made but the top three I can watch time and time again and still love them .....
Oct 19th 2011, 23:41
An interesting mix of sheer genius, good, solid entertainment and utter c**p.
None of the Great MGM musicals? I love a good musical. Singin' In The Rain, The Band Wagon, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, Meet Me In St. Louis and the sublime Gigi would all make my list.
Oct 20th 2011, 14:43
Agree that Armageddon did surprise me somewhat. I've never met a living soul who prefers that to The Rock. Strange...
Nov 27th 2011, 18:02
I'm sorry but I stopped reading the list when I got to Armageddon (tTHE most boring film I ever saw in a cinema). How was this list compiled? Did exactly 100 people vote because there couldn't be 2 morons out there that considered this film to be there favourite.
Dec 2nd 2011, 15:11
I totally agree with Matthew on Back To The Future.
Dec 7th 2011, 1:22
I agree ^_^ I can't believe 'Stand By Me' or 'The Lost Boys' didn't make it, and what's with 'Toy Story 3' making it but not the original?

WTH is this list?? WHere's THE MATRIXXXXXXXXXX ???? :-|
Jan 2nd 2012, 4:33
There are some really, REALLY bad movies on this list, like Armageddon, ID4 and Anchorman (which was kinda funny, but in no way a masterpiece plus it was pretty tasteless and childish. Too many dick jokes).
Lost Highway is also one of my favorites
