What is the most popular movie ever?

Most popular movies of all time

Im sure that no one has ever asked all of the people in the world which movie they liked best (or were you just interested in the opinions of moviegoers in the United States?).

Even if it were possible to do that, Im sure opinions would be swayed by the most recent blockbuster to be released.

,So, we have to look at different yardsticks for measuring the most popular movie.

,Going by box office receipts, the most popular movie ever is Avatar.

However, if you were to actually poll people today for their favorite film of all time, Im sure Avatar wouldnt be anywhere near the top.

In fact, going by movie website forums, it is reviled by many online film fans.

,Lets look at box office adjusted by inflation, which gives you a more accurate picture of actual tickets sold.

The most popular film by that yardstick would be Gone With The Wind.

Again, if we could take a poll of peoples favorite films, I think GWTW would outrank Avatar, but still not be in the Top 5 or even Top 10.

,So, lets look at an actual movie poll.

The Internet Movie Database is one such poll.

According to the IMDb Top 250, The Shawshank Redemption is the most popular film of all time.

Really? Now, dont get me wrong; its one of my favorite films.

But I dont think it has the collective love that moviegoers have for Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz, or Casablanca.

I dont think we will ever definitively know what the most popular movie ever is.

In fact, I dont even know what that means, since there are so many different ways to gauge popularity.

Ten greatest movies of all time

Disclaimer - I will mention 10 movies which according to me are the best movies of all time and also my favorites.

,The Dark Knightu201cIf you are good at something, never do it for freeu201dDo I really need to say anything about this movie? This is not just the best superhero movie of all time.

For me this is the best movie of all time.

Heath Ledger, you are the real hero of this movie.

He set the benchmark for all the actors in the world.

No one can ever replace him as Joker.

Period.

I cannot describe this movie in words so Enough said.

,The Dark Knight Risesu201cA hero can be anyone.

Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boys shoulder to let him know that the world hadnt endedu201d.

Wow, what an end to the best trilogy movie I have ever encountered.

I have watched the last 10 minutes of this movie more than 20 times and each time I get goosebumps while watching it.

Its really hard to justify the benchmark set by The Dark Knight but oh boy this movie completely justified the entire trilogy and lived up to more than my expectation.

,Interstellaru201cMankind was born on earth.

It was never meant to die hereu201d.

I have never seen such a thrilling, thought provoking and visually earth shattering movie like Interstellar.

The acting, the plot, Hans Zimmer score were all beyond my imagination.

The only regret i have about this movie is that I couldnt witness it in theaters.

,Inceptionu201cDreams feel real while were in them.

Its only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strangeu201d.

According to me, Christopher Nolan is the best director in this planet.

How dare you even think to make a movie like this.

I dont think such a movie can be made again.

A dream within a dream within a dream.

Yes, if you want to challenge your brain than feel free to watch it.

Inception is a sci-fi epic like no other.

,GladiatorDeath smiles at us all.

All we can do is smile back.

This is the best history epic movie I have watched till date.

This movie is a masterpiece in every sense.

Flawless storytelling, flawless acting, outstanding score and direction.

This movie changed the way I look at life.

After watching this movie, I felt the need to achieve and become what truly defines a man.

,The Shawshank Redemptionu201cHope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever diesu201d.

This movie will teach you lifeu2019s best lessons about friendships, hardships and hope.

Ranked no.

1 on IMDB.

I dont have to say anything about this movie anymore because everything that can be said about this movie has already been said.

,The Pursuit of Happinessu201cYou got a dream.

You gotta protect it.

People cant do something themselves, they wanna tell you you cant do it.

If you want something, go get it.

Period.

u201dI remember this was the first movie which made me emotional like a baby.

I still cant believe how the hell did Will Smith not win an Academy award for this movie.

I am so so blessed to have seen this movie.

It made me cry, it made me laugh and it made me love life.

,The Silence of the LambsA census taker once tried to test me.

I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

This movie is the reason why I fell in love with thriller genre.

After this movie, I have watched and loved uncountable thriller movies but still none have matched its sheer intensity and brilliance.

It still remains the best in this genre.

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lector.

Hats off sir.

,Fight Clubu201cThis is your life and its ending one moment at a timeu201d.

Always been a fan of David Fincher movies.

So he had to be there in this list.

Se7en, World War Z, Gone Girl, Zodiac etc you name it, all these are a masterpiece.

But I had to pick 1 and Fight Club is the one which is a very, very special movie.

This movie has to be in everyones list.

You will have to watch atleast 2u20133 times to understand the real meaning of this movie.

Fight Club is one such movie which gives us a real perspective of the world we live in.

,Dunkirku201cWhen 400,000 men could not go home, home came for themu201dI have seen some excellent war movies in recent times but this movie stands out right at the top.

This is the best war movie i have watched.

I was blessed to witness this movie in theater and believe me the experience was beyond my imagination.

This movie is so visually real, profoundly moving and the feel is hard to put it into words.

,Honourable Mentions-MementoForrest GumpThe GodfatherThe PrestigeSchindlers ListThats all for now.

Thank You.
