IMDb:8/10

For a horror movie that came out in 1973, The Exorcist was quite ahead of its times. It would definitely scare the daylights off of spectators of all ages, adults and young adults alike.

 

2. The Silence of The Lambs – 1991

 

 

IMDb:8.6/10

Ask any ’90s kid about the most terrifying horror movie and this movie’s name will definitely come up. Rather than a horror movie, this would be better classified as a thriller. Whatever the genre, the movie will chill you to the bones. It’s no wonder that the movie is considered to be one of Anthony Hopkin’s finest performances till date.

 

3. The Dark Knight – 2008

 

 

IMDb:9/10

Considered to be Christopher Nolan’s finest directorial, this should be on the watch list of every cinephile. You must have already heard (and read) so much about it, why not get it off your list finally? The Joker awaits your appreciation!

 

4. The Shawshank Redemption – 1994

 

 

IMDb:9.3/10

The first movie which comes up when you search for ‘highest rated movies’ is this one. An unusual story of turning over a new leaf by two prison inmates, this one touches the heartstrings right where it matters and even leads us to think about our own everyday actions.

 

5. The Godfather – 1972

 

 

IMDb:9.2/10

Based on the bestselling book by the same name, this is probably the only movie adaptation which is loved and appreciated as much as the book itself. If crime movies are your thing, this needs to be on your watch list and off the list asap.

 

6. Forrest Gump – 1994

 

 

IMDb:8.8/10

When it comes to romance, cinephiles look for more than just RomComs. Forrest Gump tells a love story like none other through the perspective of a dim-witted man and at the backdrop of important historical events. This is a movie that will touch your heart for sure.

 

7. Casablanca – 1942



 

 

IMDb:8.5/10

This is another one of the best Hollywood movies in the romance genre. A love story set at the backdrop of WWII, Casablanca tells the story of two lovers whose feelings for each other rekindle under unconventional circumstances. With an unexpected climax, this romantic movie is still considered one of the greatest.

 

8. Wall-E – 2008

 

 

IMDb:8.4/10

Animated movies are shrugged away by most cinephiles, but this animated movie is one of the best Hollywood movies of all times. A family movie, by all means, this one can be enjoyed and appreciated by people of all ages alike. You will fall in love with the protagonist who is a robot.

 

9. Schindler’s List – 1993

 

 

IMDb:8.9/10

This is one of the best Hollywood movies in the drama, history and biographical genre. The world viewed through the lens of Oskar Schindler will make us ponder about many things like the persecution by the Nazi Germans and World War II itself. This movie is based on a book by an Australian novelist.
