When I first saw these movies, I felt moved to an excellent level because how great they were. Though there are many other films that I have seen that I completely respect with a massive level, I still believe that these films tower over those ten-fold.

So, with this introduction out of the way and the film Avatar knocked off of my list because I am over that craving for the movie, I present to you all my opinion on the 10 Best Movies of All Time.

10. Crash (Paul Haggis) – The film centers around racism in Los Angeles, many different kinds of people coming together to find themselves, and end up finding the okay securities and problems of the world. The movie rightfully won Best Picture, and is one of the most impacting films I have ever seen.

9. Sunshine (Danny Boyle) – A sci-fi classic with one of the most heard and best scores of all time, Sunshine is an amazing movie with one of the best twists in movie history.

8. American History X (Tony Kaye) – The film is one of the most racial and intellectual films ever, and has a fantastic performance from Edward Norton.

7. The Wrestler (Darren Aronofsky) – One of the best endings of all time, and quite possibly one of the best roles of all time for Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler is one of the most fantastic journeys anyone can ever go on. A must-see.

6. Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino) – A hands down classic that everyone should see once.

5. Brick (Rian Johnson) – Jordan Gordon-Levitt, that little dweeb from “3rd Rock From the Sun” is a man now, and he is one of the most skilled actors in Hollywood. This is one of the best detective films ever, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a great noir film.

4. Moon (Duncan Jones) – This is a no brainer. Sam Rockwell gives the greatest performance of all time in this film. The effects were good (though the budget was $5 million), and David Bowie’s son directed it.

3. Requiem for a Dream (Darren Aronofsky) – This is the most depressing and yet amazing movies ever. From one of the greatest directors ever comes the story of drug addiction, family, and some of the worst things imaginable in life happening.

2. Forrest Gump (Robert Zemeckis) – One of the most dramatic, funny, and well-scored films of all time, Forrest Gump shows that Robert Zemeckis is the man… though all of his other movies have been par at best (Yes, Back to the Future, even you).

1. The Departed (Martin Scorsese) – The greatest film ever. It is very impacting as a film, and, in my eyes, is a perfect film with no flaws besides Leonardo Dicaprio, whom I do not like… though in this movie he was perfect.
