The 50 Best Movies Ever Madeby senram2001 | created - 02 Jan 2013 | updated - 20 Jun 2017 | Public
This list has been created based on my opinion only. I have neither rated these films based on critic point of view nor popularity. All I can say is these movies made my time 100% worth. Though I had seen certain classics like Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Vertigo, Rear Window, Pshyco, Gone with the wind, Apocalypse Now, Lawrence of Arabia, Bicycle thieves, 2001 Space Odyssey, Rashomon, The Seventh Seal, God Father II, Cinema Paradiso and Post 90s films like Forrest Gump, Memento, Pulp fiction, Seven, Lord of the rings, The Notebook, Old Boy, Inception etc had not been included in this list because those films are either close to my Heart or close to my Mind, definitely not both, apart from that there is no other reason for not including them in this list. As a movie Lover I respect each and every person's opinion and thoughts about any film which has been made so far in the film industry.
