Here are the films that had the "greatest emotional impact" on me, that is, produced the strongest "feelings". Note, I generally prefer the films ranked before the ones ranked after, though its not precise: a film ranked at 24th is not necessarily preferred to one ranked 25th, but if it is compared to another ranked at 65th, I would say I prefer it. While the first 10-15 spots are my personal top 10-15.

Note also that Lord of the Rings is one 9 hour movie and also, Kill Bill is another 4 hour movie divided into two parts.

I have in this list a mix of science fiction and artsy films and some that combine both genres (note artsy films such as 2001, 8 1/2, Zerkalo, Aguirre at the top 20).

Also note the huge proportion of Ghibli films at the top of the list, yep, these films are simply way above the competition, since they tend to evoke the strongest feelings of childlike wonder from me.

My favorite of all would be the sci fi/fantasy/post-apocalyptic/animated/epic/ecofeminist cheesy adventure film Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. It is the Ghibli film that combines all my favorite genres and is executed almost flawlessly. Therefore making it my ultimate film.

Though I would argue that the greatest in more objective terms would be another Miyazaki film, Spirited Away thanks to its combination of avant garde film-making with traditional linear story and excellent music and visuals. It is an artsy blockbuster film. Hence, the ultimate film in more objective terms.

Here I am listing the science fiction films that I consider the greatest. It is a little different than my own personal favorite, since for instance, while I think that Terminator II is more entertaining than Blade Runner one can understand that Blade Runner is a greater work of art. Though I would prefer to watch the top 3 films here over any others.

These are movies that are loved by a lot of film buffs and also by a substantial number of critics. These are the ones that are a must watch for anyone looking to be acquainted with the art of cinema. They combine accessibility with sophistication.

Here I list the animated films that I feel are the greatest. Note that my list includes only films that I have watched and there are many that I haven't.

I only included full length animated films, films by the likes of Yuri Norstein and Frederick Back aren't included, though I have watched some of these shorts (The Man Who Planted Trees would be in my top 10 if I included shorts).

The ones listed first are the ones I think are the greatest: the first three are my three favorites, the next 7 are among my 10 favorites, etc. However, the particular position is not precise: the 14th film is not greater than the 15th, though it should be greater than the 25th.

I have a list of my 100 favorite films and here is a list of the 100 films which I consider the greatest that I have ever watched. Given that I have only watched 1% of all films in existence, this list is obviously limited but I am trying my best to bring out all the films that have stood out in my memory.

Those are the films that I think have the greatest artistic merit and entertainment value for broad sets of people, instead of only myself. But greatness is primarily a function of their influence over other films. Other factors are subjective.

Thus, I attempt to be more objective here than in the other list (personal favorites) and I value more artistic value as well, so Ingmar Bergman managed to score 5 films there.
