So, what are the best movies of all time? The list includes a wide range of films, from art house European cinema to top action films and blockbusters to established, highly-regarded classics of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The entries span many genres and include some of the greatest movie villains created by the best writers and top film directors in the industry. Included are movies that were recognized in their own time – including a number of Academy Award recipients and even Best Picture selections – as well as cult movies or sleeper hits that took time to find an audience.

No. 5 - Pulp Fiction (1994).
Speaking of movies with a cult following, Pulp Fiction might be near the very top of that list as this movie has remained consistently viewed over the two decades since its release.
A Quentin Tarantino masterpiece starring Jon Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson and a plethora of other big names, this movie intertwines four separate tales of violence and redemption.
No. 4 - The Dark Knight (2008).
The highest-rated movie on the list from mastermind director Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight is widely considered the best superhero movie of all time.
Led by an engaging and heartfelt performance from Heath Ledger as The Joker, The Dark Knight played out as a thrill-a-minute detective story that had the audience instantly craving more.
No. 3 - The Godfather: Part II (1974).,
The Godfather movies have always been considered some of the best films of all time.
The Godfather: Part II picks up near where the first movie left off and continues the saga of the Corleone family as they try to expand their family business into Las Vegas, Hollywood and Cuba.
Starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall, the movie managed to win a fantastic six Oscars.
No. 2 - The Godfather (1972).
The first Godfather movie is still widely considered one of the best, if not the best, movies of all time.
There will be quite a few who will argue it into the top spot, but it still comes in as an impressive No.
2 on IMDb's list. Marlon Brando won an Oscar for Best Actor and the movie won the Best Picture Oscar as well.
It is the origin story of the Corleone family as a war breaks out during the transition of the empire from a father to his reluctant son.
No. 1 - The Shawshank Redemption (1994).
Here we are! Numero uno. The Shawshank Redemption is a must-see. Partially because out of all the thousands of movies, it got voted the best movie of all, but also because it's just flat-out amazing.
A redemption story like none other, The Shawshank Redemption stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman as prisoners who grow close after spending years together in prison.
They may not be the most conventional prisoners, but they learn that redemption is possible through common decency and never giving up on life.
