No way! It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World is one of my absolute favorite movies as well!

I was expecting the whole list to be just a bunch of old horror movies 😅🙂
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.
AriSafari293
I could listen to you talk all day ! Please do more lists , maybe video games ? Or tv shows next ?
Average GamerYT

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.

Top 10 Favorite Video Games maybe?
Blasted Heath
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
Burleon
Isn't the movie Rat Race inspired by It's A Mad mad mad world ?

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
Took Spielburg *10 hours* to render a single frame in Jurassic Park irlbtwlulmog
David Sjökvist
Awww, I though number 1 was gonna be Paul Blart: Mall Cop :(
David Sobiegraj
Any thoughts about doing a Top X movies list but only films from 2001 and on?
EvPanda
No Alien or Aliens? :(
Evan Nixon
I'd say that Jurassic Park surpasses a lot of special effects even in today's day in age.

Sword in the Stone! ❤️

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 ?
HMat
*I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS...LIKE...FOREVER*
Intimidation
Great list. You should do Top 50 Video Games sometime.
Jackson Eastwood
I find it genuinely interesting that a large portion of this guys favourite movies, despite an apparently very large education in cinema, seem to all be his childhood movies. Don't get me wrong, all of these movies are great, but they're all very... standard? I don't know, I guess I find it odd that someone who knows cinema beyond the realms of generic pop culture still sticks with those generic movies as his favourites. Solid list, though.
James Hill
The Goonies ......?????
Jordan Bond
One German movie in your top 50?? Do you not enjoy many foreign films?
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
KRhetor
It's a relief to find a YouTube film critic who actually cares about the history of film, and his able to explain his stances in an informed and articulate manner.
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

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.
Pat Tanackered
Even when I disagree with James sometimes, I'm still entertained by him. That's a rare gift. He would make a damn good diplomat
Peter Williams

Philippe Goulet
No Bergman, no Tarkovsky, no French new wave,, no Coen brothers, no Tarantino, no Chaplin... this list is invalid in my book, Sir. Cinema also exists outside of the USAs! You're missing out.
Presley Thomason
5. Gojira\n4. Citizen Cane \n3. The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly \n2. The Godfather \n1. The Searchers

Sebastian Porter
26:14 Warning! Megadeth does NOT appear on the soundtrack. (Great to see so much Hitch on your list though.)
Sir John Hammond
Ah... Jurassic Park. Bravo, Good Sir.
SlushyDeluxe
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 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

TheInsaneComputer Gamer
Glad to see Wonka on the list. \n\nThat is the one thing I don't like about the 70's adaptation, Charlie and the fan scene. It never happened in the book and imo ruins the character a little that he is the poor good kid who gets his break.
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 \

I was expecting the AVGN movie to be #1 🙈

In no particular order mine is (of which I’ve seen):\n1. The usual suspects \n2. Up\n3. A clockwork orange\n4. The prestige\n5. The departed

This is Spinal Tap should have been #11.

21:18 Another movie that has everything in it? The Princess Bride!

Who else expected #1 to be the AVGN movie?

Rolfie never disappoints me. Thumbs up.
mkvision
No Shawshank Redemption. I love that movie.
pistool1
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.
