10 Incredible Movies That People Rated 10 Out of 10

What movies have you seen that you would rate 10/10? There are plenty of cinematic masterpieces to contend with, but these are the top-voted responses after polling the internet. Is your favorite film on the list?

10. City of God (2002)

City of God,” one replied. “It's a once-in-a-lifetime film. It was made with amateur actors. And it's about a once-in-a-century memoir written by a guy that never wrote anything again. It also bounces seamlessly between a comedy, a crime drama, an art house, a biopic, a documentary, and a quirky romance movie.”

It's gritty, grimey, and entirely horrifying, yet hilarious, uplifting, and a riot to watch. Also, the cinematography sometimes reaches a fever-inducing pace, cleverly conveys some other contextual message, or is just brilliant with shots and production design coming together. A perfect film.”

9. Spirited Away (2001)

Spirited Away. There's not a single wasted frame in this movie, and the soundtrack is amazing. My favorite Ghibli film” shared one. A second said, “I felt like watching a weird dream. Or one of a dream I used to have as a kid.”

8. The Matrix (1999)

One person said, “The Matrix. I'm amazed at how well the fight choreography still holds up and is even better than many newer movies. They genuinely don't make them like they used to.”

Another confessed, “I saw it in the theater with no context other than hearing it was cool- never even saw a trailer. I haven't felt the same walking out of a theater since. So many boring movies, but this one remains the best.”

7. Fargo (1996)

Fargo. The performances in this movie by Frances McDormand, William H Macy, and Steve Buscemi were all career-defining. However, I don't see mentioned enough is how the film is an antidote for the Tarantino style of Criminals.”

6. The Thing (1982)

The Thing. The special effects are amazing. I'd watch a documentary on those,” admitted one. Another shared, “The research station at the South Pole has an annual tradition… at the start of the winter-over when they're isolated, and it's always night, the whole crew gets together and watches The Thing and The Shining back to back.”

5. Terminator 2 (1991)

Terminator 2. 11/10 would go back in time to watch it for the first time again. It still blows my mind it's four years older than me watching it nowadays—best movie of all time,” someone declared. Another joked, “That would be a good sequel, Arnold going back in time, not to save John Connor but to watch a decent movie before they messed it up with all the sequels.”

4. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The Shawshank Redemption. I love how it's just a pretty straightforward story. It's such a good one and so well told that the movie doesn't need to be revolutionary for filmmaking or anything to be one of, if not the best of all time,” suggested one. 

3. Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park is a true cinematic masterpiece,” stated one. Another added, “That score when they first see the dinosaurs gets me every time.” Finally, a third shared, “Just did a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon in September. The pilot played this score as we crested the ridge – one of the best experiences of my life!” 

2. 12 Angry Men (1957)

12 Angry Men. Every time I watch it, I find new details to admire,” one shared. “The movie takes place almost entirely in a single room, the characters develop throughout the film, and many camera shots are long, continuous takes.

“And the performances given by every single actor are amazing, each of them worthy of an academy award, and balanced, none so overwhelming as to eclipse the performance of the other actors,” another reported. 

1. Back to the Future (1985)

“The first Back to the Future,” one stated. “It's an original idea to start with, flawless screenplay where everything happens for a reason, entire last half-hour full of payoffs.” Another added, “This script is so airtight that it's used in many film classes and widely considered a perfect movie.”
