Votes: 386,908 | Gross: $0.28M
This is the funniest and, in some ways, most frightening film I've ever seen. Much has been said about Peter Sellers' standout performance(s), and of course, George C. Scott is endlessly entertaining, but the film succeeds apart from these truths. Dr. Strangelove puts a pin in the primal fear of the Nuclear Age, by showing us as we are; boys playing war in the backyard.
6. Amadeus (1984)

Votes: 310,929 | Gross: $51.97M

8. No Country for Old Men (2007)
R | 122 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon a drug deal gone wrong and more than two million dollars in cash near the Rio Grande.
Votes: 705,366 | Gross: $74.28M
9. Kiss Me Deadly (1955)
Not Rated | 106 min | Crime, Film-Noir, Mystery
A doomed female hitchhiker pulls Mike Hammer into a deadly whirlpool of intrigue, revolving around a mysterious "great whatsit".
Robert Aldrich understands the subjective morality of the "tough guy" better than any director that comes to mind. Dirty Dozen is a great example of this statement, but Kiss Me Deadly is the better film. Paranormal elements, economical writing, and a brilliant performance by Ralph Meeker separate this film from the vast majority of film noir.
10. Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
R | 137 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
The Bride continues her quest of vengeance against her former boss and lover Bill, the reclusive bouncer Budd and the treacherous, one-eyed Elle.
Votes: 571,242 | Gross: $66.21M
