'American Beauty' is indeed an American beauty! What can I say? I doubt 'Fight Club' will be as good in my opinion and I can say that this is one of those rare times where the Academy Awards have got it right!

Great acting, great story, a few funny sequences and great directing make 'Memento' a cult classic. And the ending just makes you wonder "How can it end there?"

'Citizen Kane' features a brilliant plot! The movie also features great acting by the entire cast, entertaining script and fantastic direction by Orson Welles. One of the best movies ever.

I really love this movie, it was a great idea and it’s well acted, a great achievement and better than 'Forrest Gump' for sure

This is a great movie, it’s full of iconic, memorable scenes and murders, it’s also got complicated but interesting different moments in time, serving as both a sequel and a prequel to ‘The Godfather’. Both are among my favourite films! This is really enjoyable like the first one, and probably the best sequel of all time!

You will love 'Spirited Away', if you like to keep your eyes glued to fantastic animation, your mind to brilliant story telling and your ears to a beautiful soundtrack then this is the animated gold for you! I can't get the look of the animation out my eyes!

Steven Spielberg directs one of the best movies of all time 'Schindler's List', a detailed well told masterpiece about Oskar Schindler; here he's played by Liam Neeson who gives an amazing performance!

Earlier today, I watched ‘Akira’, and that along with ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ and ‘Spirited Away’, prove that Japan produce the best animated movies (or anime as they call it). This one happens to be my second favourite animated movie ever (‘Spirited Away’ is still my favourite)

'Boyhood' is a brilliant drama that discusses growing up! Richard Linklater directs it intelligently, his script is serious and brilliantly written! The supporting cast including Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke are all fantastic! The film is frequently intense and features some intense realism of ageing!

‘The Truman Show’ is probably the best film Jim Carrey will ever make in his career, and his performance is great as well. Carrey knows what kind of performance to give at the right moment. Laura Linney and Ed Harris are also very good in their supporting roles. Like ‘Forrest Gump’ or ‘Juno’, the film balances comedy and drama perfectly. The script is also rather intelligent with everyone on the island in which Truman lives, being aware of Truman’s popularity with the exception of Truman, and their attempts to stop him leaving the island. It would be hard to say what audience the show is written for, as it films every aspect of Truman’s life.

‘Life of Brian’ focuses on a man named Brian (Graham Chapman) who is born in a stable next to Jesus (Kenneth Colley), and at the same time, and is ultimately mistaken for the Messiah. The film features some offensive but hilarious dialogue, along with hilarious comedic performances by the whole writing team for the film, along with additional actors such as Kenneth Colley and Sue Jones-Davies. There’s also the iconic song ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’ which originated from this film, and has had people struggling to find a clean version of the song for years.

Christopher Nolan is king of directors! Everything he does is awesome! 'The Dark Knight' is the best superhero movie since 'The Incredibles' and in actuality, the new superhero movie champion! Heath Ledger was amazing!

With this, Alfred Hitchcock brings you a film that will keep you glued to the screen by its visual style and you'll only want to look away during the murder scenes! With great plotting, visual style, direction and acting, 'Psycho' is one of the best horror films of all time, if not the best!

'Casablanca' is a classic movie, one of the best classics ever! The plot is inspiring, the performances by the cast including Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt and Sydney Greenstreet, are amazing! The dialogue is brilliant, memorable and well said ('You'll regret it! Not today, not tomorrow, but some time for the rest of your life!'). One of those very old brilliant classics like 'Gone With The Wind' and 'The Wizard of Oz' but better than both of them!

‘Akira’ combines various things – motorcycling, visions, still people and lots of blood! But it does it so well! Ultimately ‘Akira’ is an animated movie masterpiece and is definitely something that everyone must see before they die, especially the biggest anime fans!

‘The Queen’ depicts the British Royal Family’s response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997 and stars Helen Mirren as the titular protagonist Queen Elizabeth II. Mirren’s performance as the Queen is amazing and one of the most noteworthy film performances of all time.

The best movies I've ever seen.

Started out as a 200 list, but having seen more than 200 great films now, I extended it to the 10/10 movies (for me, 10/10 isn't necessarily perfect, the film could still have minor flaws to it)
