The Best 100 Movies of All Time . . . According to People Working in Hollywood

The "Hollywood Reporter" recently surveyed over 2,000 Hollywood industry types . . . agents, directors, producers, and studio executives . . . to assemble a list of "Hollywood's 100 Favorite Films" of All Time.

 

 

In other words, these are the best movies ever . . . according to the people who make them, not critics, movie buffs, or some random person on Buzzfeed.com.

 

 

When all the ballots were counted, here's how the Top 25 shook out:

 

 

1.  "The Godfather", 1972

 

2.  "The Wizard of Oz", 1939

 

3.  "Citizen Kane", 1941

 

4.  "The Shawshank Redemption", 1994

 

5.  "Pulp Fiction", 1994

 

6.  "Casablanca", 1942

 

7.  "The Godfather: Part 2", 1974

 

8.  "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial", 1982

 

9.  "2001: A Space Odyssey", 1958

 

10.  "Schindler's List", 1993

 

11.  "Star Wars", 1977

 

12.  "Back to the Future", 1985

 

13.  "Raiders of the Lost Ark", 1981

 

14.  "Forrest Gump", 1994

 

15.  "Gone with the Wind", 1939

 

16.  "To Kill a Mockingbird", 1962

 

17.  "Apocalypse Now", 1979

 

18.  "Annie Hall", 1977

 

19.  "Goodfellas", 1990

 

20.  "It's a Wonderful Life", 1946

 

21.  "Chinatown", 1974

 

22.  "The Silence of the Lambs", 1991

 

23.  "Lawrence of Arabia", 1962

 

24.  "Jaws", 1975

 

25.  "The Sound of Music", 1965

 

 

Nine movies from the past decade made the list, including "The Dark Knight" at #57, "Avatar" at #67, "Brokeback Mountain" at #76, "Inception" at #84, "Slumdog Millionaire" at #88, and "Pan's Labyrinth" at #96.

 

 

(You can browse the complete Top 100, here.)

 

 

(One of the cool things about this list is that it isn't littered with obscure movies that snobby critics have determined "classics," and instead includes ones that you've actually SEEN, for the most part.)

 

 

(There are also some great COMEDIES, which are often overlooked when it comes to the critics.  For example, "When Harry Met Sally" is #38, "The Big Lebowski" is #51, "Ghostbusters" is #77, and "Airplane!" cracked the Top 100 at #97.)
