There's no denying it: we all like movies. We watch them, we talk about them and we feel inspired by them. A great film can have such a profound impact on your life that it seems so unreal. Here follows a list of probably the 101 greatest films to have ever been released...Well, at least in my opinion. In no particular order.


1. The Dark Knight (2008)

Possibly the best ever performance by an actor is Heath Ledger's role as the Joker in this movie.

Starring: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson

A movie that was no doubt way ahead of it's time.


3. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

A movie filled with hope and courage. If it doesn't make you smile, nothing else will.
