When deciding to put together a list of great films, there was much to decide. First, do I want to choose only modern films, or movies throughout history? Do I want to use films that I choose, and only take into account my own opinion, or do I survey others? Probably the biggest question is, do I select only specific genres for the movies, or do I use films from all genres? I admit it was a daunting task with a lot of questions to answer before I even got started. In the end, this is what I chose to do. I would select one film for every main genre. I also decided that I would not choose the films. Even with my vast movie watching experience, I did not feel qualified to choose the best films for everyone, so I researched almost twenty movie sites on the Internet that have the capability to sort films by genre — then once sorted, could be ordered by the most popular films of that moment. In other words, don’t blame me if you don’t agree with the choices, they are based on the average of each site’s number one choice for every genre listed, and the sites get their data from your visits, so it is you, not me, who made these choices. Cheerio!


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)

Director: David Yates
Writers: Steve Kloves
Novel By: J.K. Rowling
Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint

I have to say that I very much agree with the public on this one. I am a huge fan of the HP books, and the films, in my opinion, did an excellent job reproducing them. Of course, in this installment, Harry, Ron and Hermione attempt to find Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. The search finally takes them back to Hogwarts where the Dark Lord and his army soon arrive and lay siege. During the great battle, they attempt to destroy the final Horcruxes and defeat the Voldemort for good.

    the most absurd list ever occured before my eyes – putting twilight as best for romance?, the hunger games for thriller and paronormal activity as best for horror??? reflects either the lack of film education/knowledge of the author or simply picking by mainstream favorites!!!
    in the end, definetly a disappointment this list, in every category you can find better movies to recommend to.

      this guy is right. your personal favorites is the way your write all your articles. or you do pathetic research going with the mainstream. pathetic list, as most of your articles are.

  • Juan

    I am sorry but, if you would research these films you would know that there are better ones to recommend. Do better research next time and watch the films. Go IMDB or read a book of the great films of all the time or AFI has a great list too.

    Poor show, except for the fantasy choice. To put Twilight and Paranormal Activity on a “best-ever” list is pretty absurd, and putting Avatar, a mediocre movie at best, as top sci-fi just shows how you want to appeal to the masses solely because it’s the highest grossing movie ever.

    Here are my picks;

    Action/Adventure: Gladiator
    War: The Longest Day
    Comedy: Hot Fuzz
    Romance: Four Weddings and a Funeral
    Fantasy: The Lord of the Rings (the whole trilogy; because it’s just that good)
    Sci-Fi: Back to the Future
    Horror: The Thing (1982)
    Thriller: The Silence of the Lambs

    The Hunger Games should always be second to the superior Battle Royale. Even if the category it’s in is inappropriate. Also, shouldn’t this list be titled “My Opinion of the Best Titles from Each Film Genre in the Past 10 Years” because none of the movies are older than 2003.

    Articles like this lead me to believe either that the author knows absolutely nothing about movies, or whomever wrote this is a 13-year-old girl (or both). I do agree that Saving Private Ryan is the best war movie ever made, but the rest of this list is just plain embarrassing.
