9. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (2015)
This will be something new and amazing for all the action lovers. Action with the best cinematic shot and the post-apocalyptic world will blow your mind. If you are an action lover and want to experience a genre of story and action that includes a memorable action direction, don’t think twice.
Talking about the story this movie revolves around a woman who rebels against the rule of post-apocalyptic Australia, in search of the homeland with few female prisoners, a psychotic worshipper, and a grifter known as “Max”. Yes, Tom Hardy with the grunge look fighting for his life.
I had not watched anything like this before, from beginning till the end it is fully action-packed with jaw-dropping cinematic scenes. It was a blockbuster, speed thrill from George Miller’s barking mad imagination and action in the face of the hurricane. You can say it thriller best Hollywood movies of all time or adventure best Hollywood movie of all time.
When I started the movie I didn’t knew much about the movie, I played, sat back and from the beginning each and every scene was something new to me. The scene, people, cars, action, plot, acting, makeup, and every bit was something new, and I was like what in the hell is this.

The American Film Institute remembered the film for its rundown of the main ten of the year.
8. GOODFELLAS (1990)
Talking about the best Hollywood movies of the time and not mentioning Martin Scorcese’s film will be one of the biggest mistakes. Actually, I have never met in person but watching his movies, I have an image of Martin not as a director but as a gangster. He is a master of gangster movies and his movie Goodfellas is one of his best classic tales of mob life.
This movie is about young Henry and his two friends Jimmy and Tommy who try to climb up in the world of mafia. And these friends are none other than Ray Liotta, Robert de Niro, and Joe Pesci. This movie is a complete depiction of New York mob life when it was at its peak, and how Martin Scorcese delivered the movie, is truly a masterpiece and can be watched on loop making it the best Hollywood movie of all time.
If you are a gangsta movie lover you should never miss Martin’s any movie and if you are looking for something cold-eyed, breathless, brilliant, and the excellent narrative story you are having one of the best options. This is one of the best thriller and drama movies of all time.
It is a complete pack of classic production but what I like most about this movie is the acting of each one of them. But the one whom I think performed best was Joe Pesci, he played a cold-blooded mean volatile gangster. His every dialogue and scene showed a new face of his character, and few of his scenes were so amazing that I watched them 3 to 4 times on loop.
IMDB – 8.7
Box Office – 4.68 crores USD
Goodfellas debuted at the 47th Venice International Film Festival on September 9, 1990, where Scorsese was granted with Silver Lion for Best Director and was discharged in the United States on September 19, 1990. The film was made on a tight spending plan of $25 million, and netted $46.8 million.
The basic agreement on Rotten Tomatoes calls it “ostensibly the high purpose of Martin Scorsese’s profession”. The movie was designated for six Academy Awards. Including Best Picture and Best Director, with Pesci winning for Best Supporting Actor. The movie won five honors from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, including Best Film and Best Director. Moreover, Goodfellas was named the year’s best film by different pundits’ gatherings.
7. Scarface (1983)
Before starting about this movie I want to ask that how many of you remember GTA Vice City? Yes, that game with 80’s plot, bikini girl roaming near the beach. Drug smuggling, and fighting to be at the top of the drug empire. Watching this movie is liking playing Vice City, actually, GTA Vice City is inspired by this movie only.
This story of Tony Montana (Al Pacino) who wants to get famous and earn money. To complete his wish he starts to build a drug empire in Miami. With the rise of his power, his ego and enemies also begin to rise. This a complete classic tale of rise and fall of drug mafia due to his own paranoia.
It will always be in the best Hollywood movies list. Because how Brian De Palma showed Miami in 1980 was completely outstanding. This movie is more than a story, it is the life in Miami. How things were at that time. People fall in drug cartels to earn money and how their deed eat them up. Performances in the movie are excellent and Al Pacino gives over the top performance of his lifetime.
IMDB – 8.3
Box Office – 6.6 crores USD
You will agree with me that it deserved to be in the best Hollywood movies of all time. By seeing all these nominations. This movie was nominated by Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Original Score.
6. Rocky (1976)
When I first saw the poster of this movie, I thought that this is a boring boxing movie. And I was an action movie lover. So I didn’t buy this movie, I was around 12-13 years old. After a few years I came to know about Sylvester Stallone through his movie Rambo. And with his name, Rocky movie is always attached. And I remembered that I ignored that movie a few years back.
The next thing I did was I bought Rocky and watched it in a single sitting. Believe me, I was unable to speak anything, my heart was pounding. I became so emotional that I wanted to cry after watching the brave journey of Rocky that shook me.
Rocky is not just another boxing movie, it is a life-changing movie. Everyone will connect directly to this movie. Because each one is fighting in our daily life to earn respect and glory. This happens to me and you might also have experienced this. That sometimes we don’t look for acting skills or looks in an actor. Sometimes we can only see is the hard work which he has done for a movie. Our attention does not go on acting or how efficiently is he delivering the dialogues. This type of justice Sylvester Stallone has done to Rocky.
Box Office – 225 million USD
IMDB – 8.1
I highly recommend this movie as the best Hollywood movie of all time. Among other accolades, it went on to receive ten Academy Award nominations. Winning three, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Film Editing.
5. INCEPTION (2010)
This movie was made to be, one of the best Hollywood movies of all time. When this movie came in theatres, no one knew that it was something new. A movie based on a dream with all the facts and theories which justified each and every event. Inception is an intense, complex, and mind fucking movie. It is a nail-biting thriller with a sci-fi concept.
It is the story of Cobb (Leonardo Di Caprio) who steals information from targets by entering in their dream. To do this he has a great team and some serious problems in his life. To achieve his happiness back. He is left with no choice except to perform, Inception.
When I first saw the movie I only enjoyed the thrill and action. I was not deeply connected to this movie, not in its concept, music, or theories. On the other hand, I knew that this something extraordinary so why I haven’t experienced something like that. So I rewatched it with complete dedication and it was like I am watching it for the first time.
All the concepts, all those scenes, and the clock ticking in the background. And how I can forget the original music of the movie. Christopher Nolan lays great emphasis on music because it connects the viewer directly to the scene. Music played one of the major roles for this faced paced, action thriller to be Hollywood’s best movie.
IMDB – 8.8
Box Office – 82.99 crore USD
Initiation is a 2010 sci-fi spine chiller movie coordinated and composed by Christopher Nolan. Discharged to basic and business achievement. It was named one of the ten best movies of the year by the National Board of Review and American Film Institute.

And was assigned for a sum of eight, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. With four successes, the film tied The King’s Speech—Best Picture victor—for most successes of the service.
4. PULP FICTION (1994)
You all must have heard the name Pulp Fiction. If not then you are missing some serious drama thriller of the century. I’m a Quentin Tarantino fan and I’m in love with how he creates drama. With every scene having no clue what is going to happen next. This movie is a totally unexpected collection of events. Each following scene is so random that you are going to love the level of thrill you will experience.
This story is about two Los Angles mobsters, a gangster’s wife, a boxer, and two small-time criminals. This underworld story contains all the events, which connect all of them together. Having no clue about each other, or how they will act against each other. It is a beautifully written crime story by Tarantino with overall depth in the plot.
It is a different type of crime movie which will make you happy and excited about every scene. What I like most about this movie is the conversation the characters have among them. Be it taking about mayonnaise or shooting a man by mistake when you hit a speed breaker. It is a complete package of entertainment. And you will also love the style of our favorite Samuel L. Jackson.
IMDB – 8.9
Box Office – 213 million USD
Pulp Fiction won the Palme d’Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and was a significant basic and business achievement. It was selected for seven honors at the 67th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won Best Original Screenplay; it earned Travolta, Jackson, and Thurman Academy Award assignments and supported their vocations. Its turn of events, showcasing, dissemination, and benefit sweepingly affected free film.
3. THE DARK KNIGHT (2008)
Everyone knew that no one can miss this movie in the list of best Hollywood movies of all time. This is more than a movie, it’s a feeling of respect, it is a feeling of fear. A sense of chaos, a tale of real heroism, and a war between good and evil. This movie depicts the real phase of evil on the big screen. And that pure evil personality was played by Late Heath Ledger.
I never had an idea that Christopher Nolan will direct a superhero movie because he doesn’t believe in superpower and VFX. But after seeing this movie I came to know that this movie is not about any superhero or fighting crime. It’s the evil face of our society or face which we hide behind our masks. Which is shown by Joker to prove that these people are evil.
For all acting lover viewer’s this movie contains a breathtaking performance by Heath Ledger. He has portrayed high profile criminal Joker so well that his co-stars were also afraid of him many times. This movie does not contain lots of visual effects. Nolan always believes in shooting all the scenes and keeping it as real as possible.
Reason to watch this whether you are a superhero movie lover or not –
- Best villain you will ever witness
- Excellent performance by Heath Ledger and Christian Bale
- To see a quest that Batman decides to be a hero or vigilante
- Cool Batbike
- And self-inspection that will you be a good citizen when someone did something wrong with you
IMDB – 9.0
Box Office – 100 crores USD
At the 81st Academy Awards, the film received eight nominations; it won the award for Best Sound Editing, and Ledger was posthumously awarded Best Supporting Actor. The Dark Knight is considered one of the best films of its decade. One of the best superhero films ever made. The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in the trilogy, was released on July 20, 2012.
2. GODFATHER (1972)
Godfather as the name says is the godfather of all the movies. It has been the most interesting Hollywood movie of all time and best-adapted screenplay of all time. This movie was recommended by my father. When I was small he used to say that he liked Godfather very much. He wanted that a movie like this should be made in Bollywood.
Godfather is a story of the head of the mafia family. When he transfers his crime dynasty to his youngest son. This decision has lots of consequences which you will experience in this mafia family story.
IMDB – 9.2
Box Office – 287 million USD
The Godfather has been widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made. Especially in the gangster genre, it was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 1990. Being deemed “culturally, historically” and is ranked the second-greatest film in American cinema by the American Film Institute.
2.THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (1994)
First of all I want to clarify that I have not mentioned this movie because it is the highest-rated movie. But cause I feel this movie that movie is very close to the life of every person. How they live with all the problems and still hope for the best. It’s my happy movie which teaches me that hope and hard work will pay you what you deserve.
This story is about Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), an effective broker who is captured for the killings of his better half and her darling and is condemned to life detainment at the Shawshank jail. He turns into the most whimsical detainee. This is not just a life story of a prisoner but the life of every human in prison, how with time prison becomes home to many of them and some who seek their redemption.
I will never recommend this movie to some amateur or a person who wants to watch something just to kill his time. It will be an insult to this epic lesson, rather I would suggest to a person who wants to understand and be happy in life. Never let your hope die my friend.
IMDB – 9.3
Box Office – 58.3 million USD
While The Shawshank Redemption got positive audits on its discharge, especially for its story and the exhibitions. It was a film industry disillusionment, winning just $16 million during its underlying showy run. It went on to receive multiple award nominations, including seven Academy Award nominations. And a theatrical re-release that, combined with international takings, increased the film’s box-office gross to $58.3 million.
I hope you like the collection of top Hollywood movies of all time. And I want to make clear again that these movies I have selected according to my opinion. I know there are still awesome movies that are not included in this. And which I will include in another blogs.
