Cal's Top Moviesby Zombie-Kermit | created - 10 Jan 2011 | updated - 10 Oct 2016 | Public
For me, deciding on a Top Movies is not something that can be easily done. However, this is a basic list that gives a general idea of what movies I like, and is as close as I can do to giving an accurate display of some of my most liked movies. The order is all over the place because I am mostly adding titles as I think of them. I know that most the films are from the last 25 years, but I hope to find some more older movies I like soon!
So enjoy, my Top Movies, or as close as can possibly be!

2. Schindler's List (1993)
R | 195 min | Biography, Drama, History
In German-occupied Poland during World War II, Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazi Germans.
Votes: 969,849 | Gross: $96.07M
They say there is no perfect film. That may be true, but if there was one, I imagine it would be Schindler's List. I wouldn't say it's a movie I'd rush to rewatch, but it's position as a masterpiece is undeniable, and upon watching it, you're affected deeply in ways that few other films can accomplish.
3. The Dark Knight (2008)
PG-13 | 152 min | Action, Crime, Drama
When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, the Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Votes: 1,862,056 | Gross: $534.86M
A lot of people would deride this choice, but its flaws aside, this movie is as amazing as I could ever hope a Batman movie to be, which I'll admit, owes a great deal to Ledger's amazing performance.
4. Léon: The Professional (1994)
R | 110 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade.
Votes: 818,666 | Gross: $19.50M
This one is a little difficult to explain... all I know is that I just really like this movie. I suppose you could say I love a story of platonic love, and add lots of guns, assassins and an over the top villain played by Gary Oldman, and you've got something truly fantastic.
5. Labyrinth (1986)
PG | 101 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
A 16-year-old girl is given 13 hours to solve a labyrinth and rescue her baby brother when her wish for him to be taken away is granted by the Goblin King.
Votes: 103,980 | Gross: $12.73M
An adventure movie with puppets and David Bowie. I really don't think anything else needs to be said.
6. It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
PG | 130 min | Drama, Family, Fantasy
An angel is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.
Votes: 312,152 | Gross: $7.27M
A truly amazing movie that makes you think about your own life, about what would be different if you weren't around. It's a movie that makes you want to be a better person.
7. Singin' in the Rain (1952)
G | 103 min | Comedy, Musical, Romance
A silent film production company and cast make a difficult transition to sound.
Votes: 172,583 | Gross: $8.82M
Heck, this one would make it on here if only for Donald O'Connor's musical number Make 'Em Laugh, but this is also an all around quirky, feel good movie that I couldn't help fall in love with.
8. Witness for the Prosecution (1957)
Not Rated | 116 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery
A veteran British barrister must defend his client in a murder trial that has surprise after surprise.
My favourite Wilder movie. Like most of his, it tells a great story while overflowing with wit and fun. I consider it to have one of the best climaxes around.
PG-13 | 178 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle Earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.
Votes: 1,368,011 | Gross: $315.54M
10. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

Votes: 1,219,948 | Gross: $342.55M
PG-13 | 201 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.
Votes: 1,347,827 | Gross: $377.85M
I guess you could say this trilogy makes the list because it's a true movie experience, an epic in every sense of the word.
12. Sleuth (1972)
PG | 138 min | Mystery, Thriller
A man who loves games and theater invites his wife's lover to meet him, setting up a battle of wits with potentially deadly results.
13. Hadashi no Gen (1983)
83 min | Animation, Biography, Drama
A powerful statement against war, Barefoot Gen is a disturbing story about the effect of the atomic bomb on a boy's life and the lives of the Japanese people.
A really powerful movie. The scenes of Hiroshima after the bomb are horrific and haunting. It's a movie that not enough people have seen.
14. Ed Wood (1994)
R | 127 min | Biography, Comedy, Drama
Ambitious but troubled movie director, Edward D. Wood Jr, tries his best to fulfill his dream, despite his lack of support.
Votes: 150,313 | Gross: $5.89M
15. Akira (1988)
R | 124 min | Animation, Action, Drama

Votes: 120,727 | Gross: $0.55M
16. Mary and Max (2009)
Not Rated | 92 min | Animation, Comedy, Drama
A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York.
A movie that's consistently hilarious while keeping a firm grip on your heart. The fact that this was passed over for a Best Animated Feature nomination (or heck, it deserved a nomination in Best Picture) is just plain not right.
17. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Unrated | 127 min | Action, Adventure, Horror
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
Votes: 97,153 | Gross: $5.10M
The definitive zombie movie... it manages to be endlessly entertaining while maintaining a overwhelming sense of doom.
18. Harold and Maude (1971)
GP | 91 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Young, rich, and obsessed with death, Harold finds himself changed forever when he meets lively septuagenarian Maude at a funeral.
The sort of movie that works as well today as I imagine it did over 40 years ago... it's such a weird and wonderful movie, and made me a fan of the music of Cat Stevens.
19. Tootsie (1982)
PG | 116 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Michael Dorsey, an unsuccessful actor, disguises himself as a woman in order to get a role on a trashy hospital soap.
Votes: 83,676 | Gross: $177.20M
A rare cross-dressing movie that is actually believable (not to mention funny), I was absorbed by watching Dustin Hoffman fool everyone with his brilliant performance.
20. Love Actually (2003)
R | 135 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.
Votes: 350,303 | Gross: $59.70M
I'll admit that I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy... and I love that this movie does not try to deny what it is... a schmaltzy group of stories that melt your heart. Plus, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson and Bill Nighy in one movie? That's a recipe for a winner in itself.
21. Rope (1948)
Approved | 80 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Two young men strangle their "inferior" classmate, hide his body in their apartment, and invite his friends and family to a dinner party as a means to challenge the "perfection" of their crime.
22. Battle Royale (2000)
Not Rated | 114 min | Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi
In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary "Battle Royale" act.
A whole bunch of teenagers wasting each other for two hours. Does it make me a bad person to say the concept alone makes this movie awesome? Probably, but the movie itself is fantastic, if sometimes a little cheesy, as well.
23. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
PG | 115 min | Action, Adventure
Archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is hired by the U.S. government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis.
Votes: 732,106 | Gross: $248.16M

Votes: 611,272 | Gross: $415.00M
26. Forrest Gump (1994)
PG-13 | 142 min | Drama, Romance
JFK, LBJ, Vietnam, Watergate, and other history unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75.
Votes: 1,423,495 | Gross: $330.25M
There's no denying that this is an emotionally manipulative movie. I guess that it just succeeded in manipulating me in the end. A large part of me liking this film is probably that it was the first "mature" movie my parents allowed me to watch.
27. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
R | 169 min | Drama, War
Following the Normandy Landings, a group of U.S. soldiers go behind enemy lines to retrieve a paratrooper whose brothers have been killed in action.
Votes: 992,517 | Gross: $216.54M
I realize there's a lot of Spielberg on this list. Yes, I'm a huge fan, and Saving Private Ryan is just another of his brilliant movies. Though it never quite reaches the same heights in does in its opening scenes, it's still a beautifully shot and deeply involving.
30. The Road Warrior (1981)
R | 94 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
In the post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland, a cynical drifter agrees to help a small, gasoline rich, community escape a band of bandits.
Votes: 145,044 | Gross: $12.47M
One of only two films on my list from my own country, Mad Max 2 has been an endless source of inspiration for movies, TV and especially video games, yet it remains mostly unmatched... though Fury Road is pretty incredible.
31. Aliens (1986)
R | 137 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
57 years later, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. The moon from the original movie has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
Votes: 546,848 | Gross: $85.16M
Personal feelings of James Cameron aside, I can't deny how much I love some of his work. I doubt there's any other sequel that added this much action when compared to the original that actually works. Brilliant effects and fantastic action, this is essential sci-fi.
32. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
R | 108 min | Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi
When their relationship turns sour, a couple undergoes a procedure to have each other erased from their memories. But it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.
Votes: 745,525 | Gross: $34.40M
A surreal adventure into the human mind, it also gains points for giving Jim Carrey (someone I freaking adore) such a great movie role, which he doesn't get enough of.
34. Little Shop of Horrors (1986)
PG-13 | 94 min | Comedy, Family, Musical
A nerdy florist finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed.
Votes: 53,966 | Gross: $38.75M
Yes, yes, puppets again. I truly can not see why the score on this movie is so low.... it's a freaking classic! Great musical numbers, Rick Moranis and Steve Martin as a sociopath dentist... a gem from Frank Oz.
35. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
PG | 91 min | Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
King Arthur and his knights embark on a low-budget search for the Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles.
Votes: 419,165 | Gross: $1.23M

Votes: 654,640 | Gross: $83.01M
I'm an action fan, so of course Die Hard has to make the list. I'm not really sure what else needs to be said about this classic.
41. Jaws (1975)
PG | 124 min | Adventure, Drama, Thriller
A local sheriff, a marine biologist and an old seafarer team up to hunt down a great white shark wrecking havoc in a beach resort.
Votes: 461,022 | Gross: $260.00M
When I first saw this movie years ago, it didn't have a gigantic impact on me, but upon repeat viewings I started to see it for the masterpiece it was.
42. The Big Lebowski (1998)
R | 117 min | Comedy, Crime
"The Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
Votes: 600,339 | Gross: $17.45M
This movie really ties the list together.
(Sorry, couldn't resist).

R | 113 min | Mystery, Thriller
A man juggles searching for his wife's murderer and keeping his short-term memory loss from being an obstacle.
Votes: 941,156 | Gross: $25.54M
An insanely clever movie. The sort of movie that just grabs you and keeps you glued to the screen until the very end.
44. The Lion King (1994)
G | 88 min | Animation, Adventure, Drama
Lion cub and future king Simba searches for his identity. His eagerness to please others and penchant for testing his boundaries sometimes gets him into trouble.

PG | 115 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
A family of undercover superheroes, while trying to live the quiet suburban life, are forced into action to save the world.
Votes: 527,765 | Gross: $261.44M
What makes this movie so *ahem* incredible, isn't just the story, the animation or the action, it's also the amazing sense of humanity these CGI characters have about them.
49. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
PG-13 | 130 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Harry, Ron, and Hermione search for Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes in their effort to destroy the Dark Lord as the final battle rages on at Hogwarts.
Votes: 617,713 | Gross: $381.01M
The movie isn't perfect, but after 10 years of being a fan, it was so satisfying to see the movie franchise to come to such a satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable close.
51. Monsters, Inc. (2001)
G | 92 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
Votes: 661,002 | Gross: $289.92M
Just another likable Pixar movie. Adorable, fuzzy (often literally) and hilarious. While not being the best Pixar movie, I feel it has the most clever and original concept of them all.
52. Toy Story 2 (1999)
G | 92 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
When Woody is stolen by a toy collector, Buzz and his friends vow to rescue him, but Woody finds the idea of immortality in a museum tempting.

R | 117 min | Action, Comedy
Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a superhero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.
Votes: 469,635 | Gross: $48.07M
One of the few adaptions to improve upon its source material, this movie is endless entertainment. Of course, Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl steals the show.
55. (500) Days of Summer (2009)
PG-13 | 95 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn't believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her.
Votes: 412,014 | Gross: $32.39M
57. Halloween (1978)
R | 91 min | Horror, Thriller
Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield to kill again.
Votes: 176,618 | Gross: $47.00M
No matter how many sequels and remakes and imitators they have made to this movie, none of them have been able to capture the terrifying atmosphere (that owes a lot to its small budget) of the original classic Halloween.
58. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)
R | 81 min | Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
When Cartman and his friends go see an R rated movie, they start swearing and their parents think that Canada is to blame.
Votes: 173,068 | Gross: $52.01M
I know, it's far from my classiest choice, but I just find it absolutely hilarious. I often find myself (badly) singing songs from the movie, that I've memorized almost completely from watching the film so many times.
59. Kung Fu Hustle (2004)
R | 99 min | Action, Comedy, Crime
In Shanghai, China in the 1940s, a wannabe gangster aspires to join the notorious "Axe Gang" while residents of a housing complex exhibit extraordinary powers in defending their turf.

Votes: 445,535 | Gross: $214.95M
64. [Rec] (2007)
R | 78 min | Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi
A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying.
The most effective use of the "first person camera" movie style that has become so popular as of late. Genuinely creepy and well done, it's a fantastic addition to the infection genre as well.
65. Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000 Video)
PG-13 | 76 min | Animation, Action, Crime
The Joker is back with a vengeance, and Gotham's newest Dark Knight needs answers as he stands alone to face Gotham's most infamous Clown Prince of Crime.
The only Direct-to-Video movie on my list, it is no less deserving of its spot. This is the Joker at his best, against a Batman who has no idea just who he is up against.
66. Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010)
R | 89 min | Comedy, Horror
Affable hillbillies Tucker and Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are mistaken for murderers by a group of preppy college students.
Votes: 142,508 | Gross: $0.22M
Although it's premise is simple, Tucker and Dale makes the most out of it's one-joke plot and is full of plenty of laughs, becoming, in my opinion, one of the best horror/comedies since Shaun of the Dead.
67. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
PG-13 | 112 min | Action, Comedy, Romance
Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil exes in order to win her heart.
Votes: 305,775 | Gross: $31.49M
A bright, witty and energetic comedy gem, Scott Pilgrim is one of those movies you can watch again and again... Edgar Wright's streak continues!
68. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
PG | 104 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
A toon-hating detective is a cartoon rabbit's only hope to prove his innocence when he is accused of murder.
Votes: 155,083 | Gross: $156.45M
Live-action and animation being combined has become common practice, however, to this day none of them even compare to the fun and cleverness of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
69. The Muppet Movie (1979)
G | 95 min | Adventure, Comedy, Family
Kermit and his newfound friends trek across America to find success in Hollywood, but a frog-legs merchant is after Kermit.

A Muppet fanatic with some help from his two human compatriots must regroup the Muppet gang to stop an avaricious oil mogul from taking down one of their precious life-longing treasures.
Votes: 78,854 | Gross: $88.63M
A movie that had me feeling overjoyed the whole way through, it was a dream come true sitting in the movies watching such a fantastic Muppet movie.
71. Police Story (1985)
PG-13 | 101 min | Action, Comedy, Crime
A virtuous Hong Kong police officer must clear his good name when the drug lords he is after frame him for the murder of a dirty cop.
Jackie Chan at his best. Despite the flaws of this film, I adore it.

PG-13 | 126 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
In the colorful future, a cab driver unwittingly becomes the central figure in the search for a legendary cosmic weapon to keep Evil and Mr. Zorg at bay.

Votes: 366,866 | Gross: $179.87M
74. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
G | 85 min | Comedy, Drama, Family
The Muppet characters tell their version of the classic tale of an old and bitter miser's redemption on Christmas Eve.
Votes: 37,763 | Gross: $27.28M
Not only does this movie have loads of Muppet charm, but it also is a great version of A Christmas Carol, owing a great deal to the amazing Michael Caine.... and puppets, naturally.
75. Snake in the Eagle's Shadow (1978)
PG | 90 min | Action, Comedy
Jackie Chan is a boy who is used as a janitor at his kung-fu school. Jackie Chan can't fight and is always getting bullied by the teachers and pupils. One day an old man helps Jackie train ... See full summary »
One of Jackie Chan's breakout movies, I rarely see this movie get the appreciation it deserves. A classic martial arts movie, and the directorial debut of Yuen Woo-Ping, who has choreographed pretty much every great kung fu action scene you've ever watched.
77. Cape Fear (1991)
R | 128 min | Crime, Thriller
A convicted rapist, released from prison after serving a fourteen-year sentence, stalks the family of the lawyer who originally defended him.
Votes: 139,890 | Gross: $79.10M
78. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)
PG | 90 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
A local scientist is often regarded as a failure until he invents a machine that can make food fall from the sky. But little does he know, that things are about to take a turn for the worst.
Votes: 169,229 | Gross: $124.87M
I feel this is a really underrated kids movie. I feel it's spirit and energy is up there with the likes of Pixar. It's got a real sense of simplistic innocence to it that I love. Unlike many Dreamworks movies and the like, the humour never feels too forced or too adult. It's a colourful and mouthwatering movie to watch. Just don't make the same mistake I did and try and watch it on a diet!
79. Dogma (1999)
R | 130 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama
An abortion clinic worker with a special heritage is called upon to save the existence of humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loop-hole and reenter Heaven.
Votes: 190,615 | Gross: $30.65M
I'm definitely in the minority with this, but this is easily my favourite Kevin Smith movie. Lots of great lines and an interesting look at religion, this one is a winner.
80. Gremlins (1984)
PG | 106 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
A boy inadvertently breaks three important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town.
Votes: 160,202 | Gross: $148.17M
A cheesy '80s classic. Anybody who knows me, knows how much I love I love little puppet creatures. So Gremlins being a favourite is an obvious choice.
81. Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991)
R | 91 min | Action, Comedy, Thriller
A young man with superhuman strength is incarcerated at a prison run by corrupt officials and seeks to use his martial arts to clean up the system.
I'm a fan of both martial arts movies and gore movies, so this is like a dream come true. Like some sort of twisted love child of Bruce Lee and Peter Jackson, this movie is endlessly entertaining.
82. Top Secret! (1984)
PG | 90 min | Comedy
Parody of WWII spy movies in which an American rock and roll singer becomes involved in a Resistance plot to rescue a scientist imprisoned in East Germany.
Votes: 50,342 | Gross: $20.50M
Airplane!'s under-appreciated younger brother is a truly funny movie, that more people should check out. Highly quotable, and the beginning of an occasionally successful career for Kilmer, it's one of my favourite comedies.
84. The Avengers (2012)
PG-13 | 143 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
