The 10 Best Movies Ever

From Everything Shii Knows, the only reliable source

This website is an archive. It ran from 2006-2010. Virtually everything on here is outdated or inaccurate.

There are plenty of websites where you can find the best 100 or 250 movies, presumably for you to watch sometimes over the span of the next decade. But why would you let some guy dictate your next 250 rentals to you? He's probably a snobby film critic anyway. No, friend, I can give you a definitive list: The 10 Best Movies Ever, certified as 100% accurate by me. You can watch all 10 within 24 hours if you like. Here they are, in order from best to almost best:

  1. Ikiru
    I need to watch Chinese movie by the same name
  2. Brazil
  3. Tokyo Story
  4. Delicatessen
  5. Spirited Away
  6. Cinema Paradiso
  7. Pulp Fiction
  8. Jesus Camp
  9. Paprika
  10. Let The Right One In


Additional lists

While I am not afraid to list the ten best movies ever, there are of course necessary addendums.

Additional Kurosawa movies nobody should ever put down

In 3,000 years of films and plays, Kurosawa is the best director ever. Not that I ever saw one of Sophocles' plays as he directed it, but I'm going on what I know. So, here's a list of his films which are not on the other lists but I have seen and loved.

Additional Miyazaki movies nobody should ever put down

Nausicaa and Laputa, while both expressions of 20th century human longing, are left off this list because they aren't perfect.

Honorable mentions
