I was expecting the whole list to be just a bunch of old horror movies 😅🙂

Where's Tommy Wiseau's \
Adam Bond
I can't wait until you make a full-length horror film.
Alan Acula
so I'm assuming Disturbia was inspired by Rear Window?
Andreas Schmidt
No Carpenter's The Thing? I'm disappointed.

I think T2 jumped ahead, and then JP took it another level - so I say both of them should share in the overall jump. One really proved a photoreal thing could be done, and then the other showed it could be done with things that look like living creatures.

I'd say that Jurassic Park surpasses a lot of special effects even in today's day in age.

AVGN: The Movie and Cheetahmen 2: PAY OR DIE aren't on the list? Sad!
Black Ice
Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World is inferior to Rat Race because it lacks Smash Mouth\n2/10

Top 10 Favorite Video Games maybe?

Hey James was wondering what you think of James Whale's 1932 classic The Old Dark House. I've never heard you talk about it and imo it is the greatest classic film of all time. Very spooky atmosphere and a great ensemble cast including Boris Karloff, Charles Laughton, Ernest Thesiger and Gloria (Titanic) Stuart.
Brdwthacgr
i expected The Thing to be somewhere on here, but thats okay! not everyone likes the same movies
Brevity is the Soul of Wit
I was wondering if you like Cool Hand Luke? That is one of my favorites.

I just watched The 7 Faces of Dr Lao because of your list. What a fantastic flick.. Tony Randall was awesome! Thank you for introducing me to it James. I really appreciate it!

Someone really needs to release a re cut of Willy Wonka in a horror film style.
DJDEFSTROKE
It was a mad, mad, mad, mad wait for this.
DamoDevil
what about the last action hero
Dapastrophe
I thought you would have been a fan of shawshank.
David Eguiguren
Don't know why but I just like to hear James talking about anything. It's just interesting and also relaxing somehow...
David Louis

Any thoughts about doing a Top X movies list but only films from 2001 and on?
EvPanda
No Alien or Aliens? :(

G Hagström
no foreign movies at all?
G-tallica559
Damn man, with all the classic movies I'm sad you didn't have any Akira Kurosawa films on here. There wouldn't have been star wars and the good, the bad, and the ugly if it wasn't for movies like yojimbo, rashoman, and the seven samurai bro. But regardless still good list!
GammaCatch
James really talks like a film student. I used to talk like a film student, but I learned to look at movies differently. Solid academic style stuff though, great analysis and list!
Glitcher2000
Where's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III ?

*I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS...LIKE...FOREVER*

Great list. You should do Top 50 Video Games sometime.

I watched It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World as a kid and was bored out of my mind. I've never gone back to watch it again.

Jordan Torres
I'm still waiting on an updated list that includes both of the live action Scooby Doo films
Josh Allen
I don't think all movies have to give me a moral message like you are describing lol
Keith Spurlock
This feels so much like a film school student list. Yeah I know he went to film school. I liked about 20 of the 50.
Kyle Weiss
I was waiting for these, Thought I would mention them:\n\nChristopher Reeves Superman w/Hackmans Luther\nPapillon w/ McQueen and Hoffman\nAfrican Queen w/ Bogart and Hepburn\nCool Hand Luke w/ Paul Newman\n\nGreat list James, lots of good pics :)
LLCool254
No Ghostbusters (2016) ? I thought it would be #1 James
Leonel Peon
extremely surprised alien or 2001 was not in your top 50 but nevertheless great list!
Lucas
Erm, I think you forgot Lord of the Rings...
M1GarandMan3005

Maser209
I think we all knew what the #1 choice was gonna be considering James has stated many times it was his favorite in past episodes.
MatthewLedZepfan
Really surprising to not see any Hayao Miyazaki on here

NightDragon2383
I can't disagree with his #1... every time I catch that movie on TV I just HAVE to watch it till the end. Saw it on late night TV with my dad when I was about 8 or 9, and couldn't get enough of it.
Pasta Master
This was a great list. I was eagerly awaiting this second part and was not disappointed. \n\nI thought you were going to mention the movie Rat Race when you were talking about It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Rat Race's premise was so heavily inspired by that movie. Rat Race also featured a lot of great actors and cameos from great actors from its time.
Peter Williams
My Top 15 (one per franchise):\n\n15. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)\n14. Pulp Fiction (1994)\n13. Citizen Kane (1941)\n12. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)\n11. Metropolis (1927)\n10. The World's End (2013)\n9. Die Hard (1988)\n8. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)\n7. Ex Machina (2015)\n6. Inside Out (2015)\n5. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)\n4. Ed Wood (1994)\n3. The Dark Knight (2008)\n2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)\n1. Back to the Future (1985)

Shrunken Head Productions
Thoughts on Blade Runner?
Sir John Hammond
Ah... Jurassic Park. Bravo, Good Sir.

Thanks James, now how about a top 50 video games list?
SnJ Gaming
James!!! you remember \
Sol
There is no other internet personality I have stuck with for so long, I have been watching you for over 10 years now. I think this is because not only do you have variety in the content you create, gaming, films, books etc but your tastes are so similar to mine. There are so many films in this list that would be in my top 50, 3 out of your top 5 are also in mine. These are some of the reasons why you've always been such an inspiration of mine, would love to meet you one day. Cheers James.
Splinty05
Error in description: american movie links to american psycho
StabStabStabStabby
I know it's your subjective list but I'm surprised Alien or Aliens didn't make the cut. Or any scorsese picture (Really no Goodfellas?) . This seem much more like a movie making \
Super Nicktendo
I saw a Mad Mad Mad World recently in theaters since they needed to make use of their 70mm SuperWide conversion for Hateful Eight. Wonderful film
The Casual Cinephile
My Top 3:\n\n3. Taxi Driver \n2. Drive \n1. The Dark Knight
The NoobScorpion
I shall just mention a film that James has not....implying he is either not aware of it, or does not truly know what his favorite films are
Timmy meehan
it was better when he would show scenes from the movies
Torgo Gorgo
American Movie is great.
UltraDTA
I think this is a particularly solid list. I watch \
UnseamlyTangent
The Thing (80s version)
VashDraven
I'm surprised that The Thing, Robocop, Blade Runner, Alien and Predator weren't on the list.

cantona222
I was expecting the AVGN movie to be #1 🙈
cosmosofinfinity
Surprised he didn't mention Die Hard, or any of the Alien movies. It also seemed like he really loved Cabin in the Woods, Krampus, or Trick r Treat too, as far as recent movies go.\n\nI'm curious what James thinks of Fargo, Seven, Memento, Forrest Gump, Fight Club, The Matrix, Toy Story, other Disney animated movies, or any of the Marvel movies. I don't think I've ever heard him talk about any of these.
ftc1233
This is Spinal Tap should have been #11.
justacomedian
Who else expected #1 to be the AVGN movie?

Rolfie never disappoints me. Thumbs up.

Thank you James one again for the excellent video (pt. 1 too) and summarization of the\nfilms! Beats IMDB sometimes shitty and misleading synopsis lists clearly. In\naddition, your speech rhythm and presentation is nice to watch year after year\nand video after video. In my opinion, there were some titles which can be relatively\nunknown for most of the viewers. Then again, it is good that they appeared in the list to possibly\nattract new viewers in the future.\n\nI wonder when we are gonna meet some female nerds or guest stars in the AVGN\nshow??
revpeyton79
James' voice has always been calming to me.

My top 5\n-Texas Chainsaw Massacre\n-Pulp Fiction\n-Night of the Living Dead\n-Groundhog Day\n-Terminator 2

Thoughts on Dr. Strange Love? Come on James I know you've seen it.

Jurassic Park will always be in my top ten, it was mind blowing when I went to see it back in '93 and it was a landmark film.
