The top 50 gross movies of all time is a list that includes some of the most popular and iconic films of all time. These films have entertained audiences for decades and cemented the action and adventure genre into Hollywood lore. If you want to watch an amazing film, you need to have seen at least one of these films.
There are five films in this countdown that have consistently ranked in the top 50 throughout the years. They include some of the best films of all time when it comes to creating memorable characters and plots, as well as thrilling and entertaining action sequences.
One of the first movies ever made, Ben Hur was directed by Clint Eastwood. It is a classic film that has many elements that remain relevant today. In terms of story, the movie concerns a group of soldiers that are stranded on an island after their ship sinks. The island is under attack by natives with weapons that can kill the humans, so the soldiers must find a way to defend themselves.
The first film that I would put on this list is Saving Private Ryan. Starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Costner, and Meryl Streep, this movie is quintessential Americana. It depicts the aftermath of World War Two when ordinary Americans begin fighting for their freedom against a German soldier named Johnnie come back from war and exact revenge on those who abused him and executed his family. This movie just about killed me.
Some of the scenes are unbelievable while others are slow to enthrall you with the brutality of war.
The second film on this list is Gold. Starring Jet Li, Chow Yun-hsin, and Hong Kong’s Hong Kong Confidential star Jackie Chan, Gold tells the story of a Chinese drug lord who is addicted to gold and wants to buy an American president. This movie is a fun and entertaining film that anyone should see.
Another great list film is Crazy Heart. Directed by Wes Craven, the movie is about a young woman who becomes possessed by a vengeful old man. From the trailers we saw, this one looked like it was going to be a pretty damn good film. In fact, the movie took some time to build up, but once it did, it was awesome.
One more movie on this list that must be mentioned is Edward Scissorhands. Don’t let the spooky title scare you. This is a funny, suspenseful, charming movie about a little boy who finds himself stuck with scissors that seem to be coming out of his hands. As you watch the funny scariest clown in the world move through the woods, you can’t help but wish you had scallops just like him.
Of course, this is not the only movie that made the list. It was followed by Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Home Alone. These are two very popular and memorable films from the 1990s, which I think any home would appreciate. Both of these films are on this list because they have the ability to make you go back and watch them over again. They also are two films that every person should see.
There are a lot of great movies on this list. However, there are only five of the top 50. That is because there are so many other amazing films to pick from. What is your favorite? Chances are it is on this list somewhere.
The first movie I want to mention is Star Wars. If you are a Star Wars fan, then there is no way you will leave this page without owning this classic. Star Wars has managed to stay on this list for decades. No matter how many spinoffs, prequels, and other derivative films come out, this movie is still the best. Plus, the original Star Wars film was amazing.
Of course, the next movie that must be on this list is Jurassic Park. This is my favorite dinosaur movie of all time. Not only was it amazing but the dinosaurs were terrifying. Who doesn’t want to be eaten by a T-Rex? This movie was a box office hit and is well deserving of the number one spot.
There are many more movies on this list that are absolutely amazing. What makes them great is that they are remembered fondly today. Most people just see the trailers and think they like that movie. But, if they ever go to the theater, they end up loving it. This is why these are my top 50. You should see them when you get a chance.
